Thanks, Trish and Barb.
Barb, that's such good news that Gene has had a stable week, especially during the holidays.
My sister, her b.f., and her son are coming tomorrow from out of state. My significant other will also be here. I'm going to attempt something I haven't done in 3 years--make a pot roast. The roast selections were slim when I shopped on Fri., so I'm concerned about
having enough meat. However, there will be plenty of veggies.
This has been a tradition with my b.f. and I for years--pot roast on New Year's Eve. I get out the good china and sterling flatware, nice tablecloth and napkins, and we toast at midnight with nonalcoholic champagne or cider.
The ability to once again do this is very exciting and gratifying to me, and this year I am blessed to have family here, as well. I know that you guys understand how I feel. When one has been so ill, it's almost surreal to be able to cook and host a dinner again.
Wishing you all good health in 2007.
