Yesterday afternoon and evening Atari hosted a farewell dinner (with drinks, including my first margarita ever) for GayProf and me. In attendance also was the irrepressible Stevie from Chaos with his adorable twelve week old Jack Russell terrier puppy. I got there just after 3pm, the others were present before 4 and the next time I looked at my watch it was 10:30. The party just flew by. Atari cooked (excellently) on the grille and we ate in the back garden of the house he shares with two other guys one of whom worked with his mother to turn the garden in to a showplace thet got one of Mayor Tom Menino's awards for a beautiful property. There was a big rain storm (we just moved the table under the second floor deck), the wine kept on appearing in our glasses and I discovered I really like margaritas. Good drinks, good talk and great men--a superb evening.
As I turned into the driveway of Fritz's place early this afternoon, I encountered the drillers who had just finished the holes for tomorrow's second and (hopefully) final blast. Maybe I'll be on the property to hear it go off. After that, the final concrete will be poured and then it's on to framing in all the walls and roofbeams. We progress!
Plus now I have some experience cooking for multiple people. Might make it easier should I consider doing the same for the larger blogger group in New England.
Good luck with your final stages in moving.
