An Appetizer Affair

I am a useless lump today. Juannie and I went to an appetizer party last night at my brother and sister-in-law's apartment in New Orleans. I drank a lot of yummy chocolate daiquiri. Then I foolishly followed that with two glasses of wine. It's not a good idea to mix everclear with anything. I had a doozy of a headache when I woke up this morning.

The party was fun. It's great to see that people are coming back and are wanting and needing to socialize. One of the guests was a friend my brother and sis-in-law made one night while eating sushi and sharing their evacuation stories. And I met lots of other fun folks and saw a lot of dear friends. I think this is going to be a really wonderful holiday season because it won't be taken for granted by any of us.

To recuperate, I have taken two naps but still managed to finish Jane Eyre and reread The Eyre Affair.
