Quiet time

The Progressive Dinner went well. It was a lot of fun. I'm run to rags, but I'm hoping to get some good sleep tonight. The steak au poivre was wonderful. AND, we've got some chain meat and scraps, which, together with the leftover roast veggies, will make an amazing beef stew. Yum!

Sassy was an excellent hostess. The kitties are now let out of their cage and are romping about. I managed to hack my way through a multitude of Christmas songs at the piano after dessert, so that went well.

Big day tomorrow. Here's hoping the weather cooperates!
