CHOP CHOP
We've been doing party prep all day: dusting, laundry, vacuuming, general pickup, and then starting the preparation on the gazillion salads that we are serving tomorrow. Anders was outside all day weeding, mulching and then mowing the lawn. We also had to run to the store 3x for various forgotten ingredients. After dinner, which was gigantic, perfectly cooked, THICK steaks and artichokes, we did the salad prep. I was in charge of chopping vegetables. I'm a slicing, dicing queen. My mom and sister were very impressed, so I guess my two years of slavery service at the Bagel Fragel Deli during college has stood me in good stead. My sister and I managed to get in a couple of games of cribbage too, and the score stands 3-2 (her, darn it).

Tom (Sarah's sambo) was supposed to fly in tonight, but because of Bonnie and Clyde Charlie, his plane was delayed and he ended up having to stay overnight in Atlanta...we're not sure what time he'lll make it in tomorrow.

The relatives and my friends are descending sometime tomorrow afternoon, I think we figured we'll have 22 adults and 11 kids. ! Hopefully the weather will cooperate, but it's not looking too hopeful.

I can't believe there are only 3 days of vacation left.

hello dear one, i have a wee question to ask you- i wonder if you would like to take over ownership of storybookland? you could pick helpers or co-mods if you would like? i just don't have the time to give it the attention it deserves... i wanted to ask you first because i know you have passion for the art. no problem if you would rather not, get back to me any time. ;D
take care doll

you're so sweet for asking! I've never been a moderator before and don't have the slightest idea what's involved...I'm in the States on vacation for another week, if you find someone else in the meantime could you let me know? Otherwise, I'll think about it and let you know in about a week, if that's okay.

sure thing doll ;D
there's no hurry or anything
i really don't do much of anything & the community keeps itself going, but i think if someone was just there to post neat stuff once in a while reminding everyone why they're there it would be a really good thing.

livia, I've been thinking about it and I'm afraid I'm going to have to say no. :( I'm just too crazy busy and the thought of taking on another responsibility is too much at the moment. Plus, I think that it would be a crying shame to lose you as a moderator, even if you feel like you're not doing your best at the moment. I will continue to post stuff as I have the chance, I promise. I hope you won't disappear from us!

I'm back in Sweden and it is surprising to me how the whole 3+1/2 week vacation went so fast! And man, is it HOT, HOT, HOT back in the old country. Why does it seem hotter here (at 30 C degrees) than Seattle did at 42 C degrees?? I don't understand.

Here's hoping your travels home go as smoothly as mine--the sleeping pills worked wonders. Fell asleep before the plane took off and woke up as we were landing in Amsterdam. The best part...NO JET LAG!

We're heading down your way next week on our way to-from a quick Copenhagen visit.

No jetlag?! I can tell you don't have kids yet, since there is no way I could sleep all the way home, more's the pity. We don't get back until Tuesday and I'm hoping not to be completely flattened by jetlag as we have a completely crazy week ahead of us. No chance you can swing by and say hi?

steak and artichokes! gazillon salads? Where is this party? I'll drive all day...
enjoy the rest of your vacation, Mrs. Lizardek!!

OH! IT was AWESOME!!! You should have come! :) The spread was unbelievable! I'm crazy busy but will write all about it as soon as I have a chance...don't know when...please be patient! don't despair! (hahahah!)
