It's a "love/hate" relationship between me and entertaining. I love people and I love entertaining with great homemade goodies for them and want a cozy welcoming feel to my home BUT I'm also clearing and cleaning not realizing I was going to have company and I've made a mess of things! I know...what else is new? LOL!
But, my friend Lucy had company for her daughter's birthday party and she just went around and boxed up everything that didn't belong and sent it to another part of the house! Brilliant I tell you! Brilliant!
So, I will still be busy this week but I feel like I can do this! Please tell me I can?!?! I've gotten so used to going at my own pace (which is similar to a snail) and I've been happy and healthy that way now for quite awhile so we'll see if I can speed up at least a little so that I can welcome my guests and make them feel "at home".
BTW, I never really get to the stage where I invite people I just always say they're welcome here and sometimes they take me up on it! I'm excited...nervous, but excited.
I did manage to do some laundry yesterday and changed the sheets and today I'm making pecan encrusted chicken, a recipe from Aunt Nubby's Kitchen or I could make her chicken enchiladas she featured yesterday? She has such great, simple and delicious recipes....love that gal! I have more laundry to do and hangout, ironing and of course packing up "stuff" and readying the guest room. I tend to use that room as a catchall.
If anyone has any tips for prepping for company with only 4 days to do it please let me know! I am very open to suggestions. Anita, do you have any recipes for a SUPER energy drink? LOL! Have a great Monday everyone!
