Day 136 - Phone a Friend
Thursday, August 06, 2020
I've still been feeling rather bleh today. Suddenly I'm just so very fed up of this year.
So I 'phoned Elaine. Tbh I speak to her frequently anyway. If I don't hear from her for a day or two I call, just to make sure she's OK. However today I called her so she could cheer me up. We talked about my forthcoming visit. She wants to have a barbecue and invite all the usual suspects. Bear in mind she has a HUGE garden so social distancing won't be a problem. Of course when I say she wants to have a barbecue, I mean she wants a barbecue at her house but isn't able to actually do one herself - I'll do all the food prep and cooking. Probably with help from youngest son when it comes to the actual cooking. Which is fine because let's face it, cooking is 'my thing'. Having told her I was feeling very fed up, I also told her I want to buy the food for said barbecue. She had the good grace not to argue for once!
Now I'm trying to fire myself up planning my visit, and said barbecue. I'm thinking about what I want to do whilst I'm 'back home' and also looking for ideas for what to bung on the barbie. I have enough in my repertoire but I love to try new things. Not to mention the additional challenge of prepping food in Elaine's kitchen which barely functions. Elaine's cooking bless her amounts to bunging stuff in the microwave, hence there is no work surface for prep work. Still, when it comes to food related stuff - I like a challenge!
I always finish my blogs by wishing blessings on you. So here's some specific ones.
