Alright, I was a tad over the top yesterday, with the rant to the unseen. My apologies for the vitriol; though the sentiment is still valid I could have been nicer. Many thanks to Flutter for talking me down off the roof - she's the kindest, realest, most generous person I have ever met in Blogland, and Bea and I just adore her.
Evidently a lot of people are feeling the pre-holiday strain - many of the blogs I read yesterday had similar signs of stress. I didn't think I was stressing, but maybe I am - our family gatherings can be kind of volatile. Luckily, Bea will be going with us, and we are armed with many and mighty bottles of the lovely bubbly - it will either soothe the savage beast or initate an Ethel Merman sing-off - either way, its a distraction.
There is also another, darker side to the holiday season that I could never sum up as well as one plus two has - who says that while its lovely that folks want to help the homeless at this time of year, they need our help and compassion all year round. Have you given to your local food bank yet? They need our help, now and all year long.
I think I want to go over to lemonade and kidneys for dessert though - check out her FABULOUS desserts! I gained 10 pounds just looking at the pictures, and another 5 reading the instructions. When should I be there and can I bring a date?
Happy Turkey Day to All!
