We had a bbq here at the house last night for all the Neighborhood House board members. All I had to do was clean up the house and yard and everything else was done by the NH folks. The food was fabulous, we had tables and chairs on the deck and lawn and it was warm enough, and the company was fabulous. I especially loved the devilled eggs and the key lime pie. And even the clean up was done for me. Now THAT'S a party!
Many of the folks ooh'd and aah'd about the garden and asked how long I had been working on it...20 years was my answer...it should look fairly good. Some of the plants near the house had been damaged by the roofing and painting crews, but you can't expect to have nothing disturbed when the heavy work is going on right in the flower beds, can you?
