Bosom Buddies

Maggie, of Serendipity is Everywhere, posted a link to a performance of Sisters, which I enjoyed so thoroughly that I went and found the video above, because when I was in a musical theatre group, I did this song with another gal. I think I sang the Bea Arthur part. It's been more than 11 years, so ....

I would love to be able to sing this kind of stuff around here, but who, who, who I say will sing it with me? Who will play the piano? Who knows these songs? Who?

Julie, your package came in the mail and yesterday I put it into the CD player to listen to and forgot about it till today, when I came home from an outing with my niece and got down to the business of washing dishes. Chic Gamine, you say? I had no idea what was going to come out of the speakers, but in only a moment I was dancing and singing along. Now that is the way to do dishes. It makes them a halfway pleasant pastime. Thanks for the treat.

The headsup about the gospel workshop in Saskatoon also arrived via email. I'll be there, for sure. Hoped to be accompanied by my sister Karen but alas the dates don't work for her this time either.

And now, my farmboy has called with a request that I make a beer run before 6 o'clock and rustle up supper for four hungry men to devour when they get off the combines and out of the grain trucks in a couple hours. So off I go to town for the second time today, racking my brain: What should I make? I could pick up a roasted chicken from the Co-op, he tells me. That feels like cheating! Heh.

Better get a move on and figure it out on the way.


  1. The only think I dislike more than cooking is thinking about what to have for dinner.

  2. I go into panic mode when surprise dinner guests are expected, it is like my brain drains of recipes and I fall into a paralytic state. not pretty. For anyone.
    I loved the 'Tube - two fab ladies.

  3. I have friends and family who throw together a meat 'n' potatoes feast for 4 or 6 or 8 or 2 dozen as if it's second nature, no worries, no stress. Not me! Or do they just hide their anxiety and effort so much better than I do? Having people over for supper is no treat for me ... it's work and worry ... on top of housework ... so I don't do it often. And when I do, I don't want to make meat 'n' potatoes; I want to make something that really IS a treat for ME as well as everyone else. I'd rather take everyone to a restaurant and enjoy myself.
