Party Time

Today will be a really short post as we are rushing around getting ready for our party. There were lists and schedules to be typed, dips to be made, hot nibbles to be cooked, curry dish to make, chili to cook, serving dishes to be found, wine glasses to be washed, dogs to be brushed, house to be cleaned and the list goes on. I feel pretty relaxed about the whole thing though - everything is well in hand as we kept the food a bit simpler than usual and Carm is a most excellent helper/partner/sous chef.

Another good inspiration:
The happiest people don't necessarily have the best of everything.
They just make the best of everything.

Today's word of the day is imbue (im-BYOO verb 1: to tinge or dye deeply ; 2: endow). We are hoping to imbue this evening with a feeling of fellowship and good cheer. (lame, I know).

And that's that for today!
