It has been a very interesting Valentine's Day. I am still dizzy, but am trying to do as much as I can to get ready to go to the wedding. We have to leave Friday morning just as soon as I get my hair cut and blown dry. I hope the girl that cuts my hair on a regular basis can blow dry it so that I don't end up not looking like myself. I can only hope.
Dick did give me a beautiful Valentine Cake, which I know is REALLY good because someone brought it to our Relief Society Birthday luncheon last week. I NEVER buy cake at a bakery but I had to ask her where she got this one. Dick was there as the resident priesthood holder so he heard her say where she got it. He surprised me with it and you can see above how beautiful it looks. You'll have to take my word for the fact that it tastes as good as it looks.
We have both been trying to lose a couple of pounds or so before the wedding, so we decided to wait until tomorrow to serve it to our company. We are expecting my nephew and his wife to spend the day and the night with us. I'm afraid Dick is going to do all the cooking because I don't think I will be much help. He is going to do turkey salad sandwiches and salad for lunch tomorrow, a wonderful chicken cassarole that is Sue's recipe (I am going to post it in the next couple of weeks as I know you will all love it.) for dinner, along with rice and my oriental salad, plus the cake for dinner. Then Thursday morning he will make eggs benedick(notice the spelling), his own version which is even better than the original, which he can also do well. So I think we will be covered for meals while they are here. Thursday when they leave we are going to have to do all our packing and laundry. What a busy time. I will be glad when this wedding is over.
