The trip to the grocery store was uneventful other than when I would look down at the cart I would almost hyper-ventilate. I'm not so worried about the actual cooking and the putting together of the appetizers but I just can't seem to get my head wrapped around the idea of “200”. The whole time issue is what's throwing me but I'm going to do it and I'm going to get 'er done, one way or the other!!!
It rained off and on all day today. It was very overcast and so dreary looking outside. Kind of a bummer day . . . but then it sure beats the drought we were having about this time last year!!! The tomatoes look like huge bushes out in the garden. Everything in the vegetable garden is just going wild! Thank goodness we’re on top of the weeds so we don’t have to fight with that!!
I’m waiting patiently for the rain to abate because I have blooms on my eggplants and I need desperately to spray them. The bugs just eat the eggplants up. I’ve never been able to grow healthy eggplants and it just frustrates me to death. My girlfriend just smiles at them and I swear they grow huge!! She can grow anything and her eggplants are magnificent!! I’m so jealous!
Tonight I’m starting on the Dessert Crackers for the wedding reception. If I start now I can take my time and not get so bent out of shape. The Dessert Crackers can be made eons ahead of time so I’m good there. We’re eating leftovers tonight. At least I don’t have to worry about cooking so I’m covered in that area. I’m trying to keep things as normal as I can while I’m readying for the reception so I don’t panic and get myself all tore up over it. I’m being very methodical about everything. I’m sure this would not be such a big deal except that it is the very first time I’ve done something like this and the first time is always the toughest. I’m just hoping I have enough wits about me to take a picture of the table when I at last get it prepared for that evening. I so want to remember this job and be able to look back on it and scrutinize it.
