A Good Friday (oh, and don't burn the calamari)
I hope you all had a wonderful Good Friday. We certainly did. The sun was shining and it seems that everyone in the house woke up on the right side of the bed. Nice !
I prepared my World Famous eggs benedict with smoked salmon for brunch. We had a few visitors pop in, including one of Mom's previous home-care workers. He hasn't been assigned to us for months, yet he never misses stopping in on special occasions with a little treat for Mom. He had a little easter bag filled with home-made fudge.
Isn't that sweet?? You can tell the difference between those that just do their job and those that genuinely care about their patients.
The evening ended with a great gathering at a friends house. It's been awhile since I've been out to howl ! LOL
My invitation for this party had a notation at the bottom "Don't burn the calamari". So I should tell you about the last time I was invited to this house. When I arrived Teri was just breading a bunch a calamari with cajun spices. She dropped it in the deep fryer and then took me to see the recent renovations they made made to the hall and bathroom.
We opened a few windows, cleaned up and started again. It seemed like that was the end of it.......until it was time to go home. The second we got outside in the air, we could smell it again. The odor had completely absorbed into the fabric of my shirt.
It was a smell like no other and it seemed to have a life of its own. So last night the party was calamari-free. Spending a few hours with good friends was just what I needed and was a perfect way to end a great day and kick off a long weekend.
It is another sunny spring day here and I am going to a Bird House sale. You can read about it here.
