after all, it is supposed to be a blog about life at our house.
Of course... life also means illness. And that is what struck us down a couple of weeks ago... and you know when the kids are ill, you just dont feel like doing much. Then of course you get ill... and the cycle continues.
But, interestingly enough, just a week ago, my hospitality theme was actually put into action. I invited my friend and her family around... hosting them for dinner.
On the Menu:
And a Lemon Drizzle cake for dessert... YUM! So much for my Lenten fasting... luckily I fasted from meat a couple of times that week... a habit I have tried to keep up in memory of the older Christians.
The following day, we were invited out to dinner with other friends. This couple are an older couple, Jacobite used to work with the husband, and was even his best man a couple of years ago. The meal was delightful... and the kids were angelic.
Then, the day after that we were invited to a friend's church. These friends are another older couple... the wife used to be best friends with my MIL before she died. The church was hosting a homecoming dinner and concert, and we attended. Even though it was longer than we had planned, the kids were again, angelic. Thank goodness for small mercies!
This weekend I have been planning and playing in the garden... hopefully I will be able to blog and post pictures on my garden blog later :)
And maybe I will get to the mardi gras masks the kids made... amongst other things...
So many things to do, so little time!
