Wednesday, if I thought yesterday was bad ... today's much worse. Kept myself quarantined from friends. Tomorrow hopefully I am feeling better as I am cooking prime rib dinner for 8 and the sun is out so we can all be outside.
Thursday was my BBQ'd Roast Beast dinner for 8 including yorkshire puddings. Fortunately I was feeling better in the morning to get things done. Having the dinner at 2 pm in the sunshine worked perfectly. It was cloudy all morning but the sun came out by 1 pm for so everyone stayed warm. Thanks to everyone for contributing. By 6:30 pm I was back in bed for the night.

December 31st, New Year's Eve
The bunch of us were all in our seats for the party by 6:30 pm. It had been a cold and showery day, although the rain let up just in time to walk over to the hall. The Band played pretty good listening music but the dance floor only filled a handful of times. I lasted only an hour and a half before it was back to bed for me. Ray managed to last until midnight. It is pretty funny once everyone shouts Happy New Year the hall clears out by 12:05!

New Year's Day we went over to John and Sandy's for their annual Gin Fizz Fest. We brought over Mimosa ingredients. We were all huddled outside around their campfire in a can but soon the sprinkles began again so they brought the party inside their coach. (They put me in a corner so I could not infect anyone). Another great day.
PS: Ray did catch the ilk.
