  • 12:04:38: Celery, parsley, onions, chopped. Lamb stew in progress. Laundry in progress. About to start bread. Good kitchen smells--yum.
  • 20:16:58: Husband and son moved in on lamb stew--hardly a quart left.

Birds in the Roasters

So the birds went in on time, before 7 am. Frosty morning, soon to warm. Clear and lovely. One set of guests has already let me know that illness hit and they're not coming. (This is why the word for the day is "flexibility. Sometimes I get more, sometimes fewer, guests.)

If the train left on time, Distant Guest should be having a ride through late-fall/winter Texas on a gorgeous crisp, clear morning, and arrive at Austin to be met by Longstanding Traditional Guests. Other guests from various locations will be coming (or not coming, depending on their health, whether the car has flat tires, etc.) and so I need to get up from this chair and leap into action again. Or...something.
