I do not know if you like family birthdays. I know two sorts - ones I like and ones, well... This was one of the later.
Well, we were asked several months in advance to say if we wanted to attend. It was not my family, but the birthday of a friend with a lot of family. And it was very formal - with place cards - although the main course was a buffet one room away. I got it a bit wrong - I thought it would be a lunch. Hey, we were invited at 11am on Easter monday...! That meant I did not eat before.
Had I only known - we arrived five minutes before - being nearly the first guest of 50 people invited. We had to wait until 12.15 before the soup was served. I nearly fainted with hunger. The soup was delicious - I should have eaten more. The main course - the buffet, you remember?- was not. So I looked forward for the coffe table. Lucky me - i took two cakes there and I know what I would eat!
Hubby came home today in the early afternoon and wanted to go to the fridge immediately. Why? He had some blood samples taken for an University study and wanted to put them there. We will post them to the University hospital by snail mail.
Well, hubby wanted to get ridge of more blood it seems. I heard a howl from our bathroom and hubby was loosing a lot of blood. Bad cut into finger - now he has the second bandage on his finger and we hope that the bleeding has stopped.
Yes, you hear right. A lot of white fluffy came down today. Well, it was not the cold water thing today - we had around 25 degrees Celsius. Cottonwoods are sending this white stuff in such an amount it looks like snow.
Hey, you did not believe that everything went well today? Yeah, you are right! After the baking desaster yesterday I asked my hubby to bring me fresh eggs for a next try. I wanted to bake a new cake. When I opened the package with the fresh eggs - oven allready hot - I realized that nearly all the eggs were broken. No eggs no cake.
And I am a victim of my allergies - red pimples all over and coughing, not to mention the scratching coz my skin itches.
Not so nice when you want to go on a visit - so I stayed behind. Home happy home- sleeping much to forget everything.
I wanted to order something from the US since some time. Well, I did not possess a credit card. So I could not order. (In Germany we have another system of payment - so I never needed one.) Now I managed to get myself a credit card and today I made the first online order in the US. I am so proud.
... with a bad headache. Crying, looking for pills. Having to realise that all painkillers are out of date. Oh my... Got better and slept a bit after breakfast. Went to the pharmacy and got rid of the old stuff. The short walk - nearly too much for me. Slept afterwards again. Feeling a bit better now. Still not the old Lily, but much better than last night.
... really belive I can get over it in just a weekends time? Monday I went to work. On the night to Tuesday my body decided to wake me each second hour - coughing. So I visited the doc today. I seem to have some little friends producing slime, a lot of slime. And it does not help that I am an allergican - that condition seems to help my little friends get a cozy life. So I hope sleep, drinking hot tea and some pills will get me rid of these uninvited little friends.
