Yellow Dream, 2008, Oil on Panel, 9x9
I am completely exhausted this evening and I expect I will be even more so tomorrow. We are having a pretty good sized party (20 guests) tomorrow night which has been great motivation to get our house and yard cleaned up. Doug spent the day weed whacking and mowing the lawn (in between the rain showers) and I had to go out and spend like a million dollars on food and other important things for a party like citronella candles and fashionable vinyl tablecloths. Oh wait, there is no such thing as fashionable vinyl tablecloths. The best ones I could find have big images of fruit all over them.
Anyway, tomorrow I will be finishing up getting the house in order and cooking. It is a potluck but in true mom form, I am worried about not having enough food and so I suspect that I will cooking way too much.
But I just can't resist making my specialties:
roast vegetable lasagna
pesto pine nut potato salad
green salad (with lettuce from our garden)
strawberry shortcake with homemade whipped cream
Oh and I have all this great cheese from a local farm that raises goats and they make the best goat cheeses ever.
I do plan to try to take a nap tomorrow afternoon though, so that I will be able to speak coherently with all of our lovely friends.
And did I mention the soccer games in the morning? Good grief, this is the season that will never end.
