I have been in the kitchen for about four days straight. The first two guests arrived a week ago, two more arrived on Tuesday and one more on Wednesday. Three left today, two still sleeping in the grey cottage studio. In any event, I cooked big meals for everyone every night and now, I am spent. Tomorrow, I need a day without carbs and without meat or roasted anything. I'm thinking Japanese food.
I am so grateful that I don't have to travel for Thanksgiving this year; that our house was filled to bursting, but didn't; that our family came to see us and that they left; that I have the kind of mother-in-law who tells me not to bother ironing the tablecloth. Love that.
