The last few weeks are a complete blur in my mind. We were doing a vast number of things in preparation for yesterday's event at our home, and not completing everything that we were trying to do. The fruit trees are in, the yard is prepped, the new couch is in the den, and the old one is out in the yard for comfy seating, cooking has been and gone. Cleanup? Well, there's still a couple of hours worth of work to do with that, to be honest. Duck bones are being made into stock for the upcoming year...

Somewhere in the mess we watched a couple of Netflix discs: Trumbo which was a good film; also Passengers which was pretty stupid.

Friday night two friends of ours, sekl from San Jose and Tom from a Chicago suburb flew in to join us for the next day's festivities. They were both instrumental in getting the final polish on our yard/house for the event.

Yesterday we were a bit worried because we were having a wind storm the evening before and in the morning and we were having trouble setting up for Carnivore's Feast. The winds died down pretty much just as we started having folks arrive and so though the temperatures were higher than they've been the last few years, all-in-all our festival turned out fun. Turn-out was the lowest its been for some years but I'm not disappointed in that it meant that each individual got more of my attention and I wasn't forced to cook the whole time. Lovely party, and I'm glad that we had so many friends new and old who could attend.

Today then will be devoted to cleaning and recovery. Heavy on the recovery.
