Good Afternoon ~~ I'm baa-ack, with nice clean, plaque free teeth! 

smiley122

I had a really rough night ~ coughing and trying not to wake Mike and trying not to have to get up and go and sleep in the chair in the Morning Room.  Woke at 6AM and had a hard time getting up.  On my last visit, I negotiated a once a year visit to the Periodontist and once a year to my Dentist rather than essentially going every three months to one or the other of them.  I should have gone in April, but so many things going on that I didn't get there until today, and I was concerned that I would have more plaque and they would make me go back on the old schedule.  Hygienist started calling out the numbers and I heard a 5 and a 6 and panic started, but most were 2's and 3's and the others weren't far beyond what they were last year, so I'm able to stay with the Sane Schedule.  Yay!    On the downside, when I left I could barely walk back to the car.  My legs are getting so puny they are nearly worthless sometimes, perhaps particularly after I had been laying down for an hour with my head lower than my feet.    Ok. Enough whining for now.   We stoped by OMG Donuts! and came home for coffee and donuts ~ not exactly 'diet', but definitely rewarding.

Shauna comes tomorrow, so I don't know when I'll post then either.

Barb excused the Dialysis Center and her tech saying they were busy and the tech was helping others and on and on.  I had ranted and raved so much I feared that she felt she had to defend them, so I apologized for my mouth.  (Shiela and Corrina said almost as much as I did, but not quite.  Ha)

That night and much of yesterday she was sick, and I was concerned it was something to do what what happened at the Dialysis Center, but her step son said several of his co-workers got sick too, so there may be a virus.   Or . ..not?   Now today, SHE is mad thinking about how she was treated and she said she will be talking to them tomorrow when she goes for her second appointment..

OhMyGosh, never a dull moment at your house, huh?   I'd laugh, but I know your mom couldn't have gotten as good attention from all those who came as she would have if they hadn't been rushed out to make room for the next one.   I wish there were something I could do or suggest to help YOU.  I know it has to drive you nuts.

We seem to have something going on with the Sprinklers that maybe the rest of the neighbors might not.  I dunno.  Mike had the water turned off from downstairs because we can't easily get to the outside turn off, but then Steve turned it off outside, so Mike turned the water back on from in the house.  That way a repair person could turn the water on and off as needed.   Surprise, surprise, it appears to have run last night or this morning because the rock in the back of the house is wet.  Nervous making that it may be running when the water is turned off!  Mike reported it again.

We just got word that Echters is going to replace our Mock Orange that never bloomed on Wednesday.   I'm really looking forward to that sweet smell and those beautiful blossoms again instead of a nice green, unflowering bush!

   We have to do a bit of clean up before Shauna comes tomorrow.  Usually there isn't much to do, but this time it's been a month, and we haven't kept things up as well as we might have.  

I hope you have a GOOD Day!  

Hugs,

I WROTE TO BARB LAST NIGHT AND I BEGGED HER TO SAY SOMETHING 

TO SOMEONE ABOUT  HOW SHE WAS TREATED.  I TOLD HER THE STORIES

I COULD TELL OF SOME OF THE HORRORS I HAD DURING MY CANCER TX 

AND THE BONE MARROW TRANSPLANT.  I TOLD HER HOW I WISH I HAD 

SAID SOMETHING THEN SINCE I NOW BARE SO MUCH GUILT THAT 

BECAUSE I SAID NOTHING THEN, THAT SOME OF THOSE THINGS WERE

ALSO DONE TO PATIENTS SINCE THEN.  I SO WISH I HAD SPOKE TO 

SOMEONE THEN,  I WAS SO STUPID NOT TO HAVE.

MAYBE YOU SHOULD TRY SOME OF THE LEG EXERCISES I LEARNED FOR

STRENGTHENING MY LEGS, IT MIGHT HELP.  LET ME KNOW IF YOU WANT 

ME TO TELL YOU THEM.

I AM KEEPING IT SHORT AS I SHOULD HAVE BEEN ASLEEP A WHILE AGO.

REST WHILE SHAUNA IS CLEANING.  I HOPE THINGS ARE BETTER FOR

HER AND HER FAMILY.

SWEET DREAMS MY FRIEND.

HUGS,

Helloooo.

I know.   Late again.  Shauna texted last night and asked if she could come early, between 8:30 and 9 AM. because she had a meeting at 2:15 across town.   We agreed and dragged ourselves out of bed, dressed and readied ourselves for the day, made the bed, refreshed the sheets for her to put on the guest room bed, and were all ready for her at 8:30.   She didn't get here until nearly 9:30..   Well, grumble!    Then she showed us the pictures of her husband's blisters and they way they progressed to his foot looking necrotic and swollen and the surgeries to remove the bacteria infected flesh.   Aaiieee.   Really horrible.  He is still off work and at home, and going into the hospital for antibiotic infusions.  I don't know when (if??) he will be able to go back to work.  He's in a wheel chair and/or walker.  Thank goodness his company does have him on Disability.   This really has been a nightmare.  I know we probably talked too long, but she needs that release of being able to talk to another adult.

Then she got to work, and wore me out.  lol    Our Trash/Recycle pick up was delayed for a day because of Memorial Day, and the lawn mowing was delayed for a day because of the rain, so everything happened today.  

I felt so terrible all day yesterday, but thank goodness I feel much better today.  

Barb said she will say something when she goes to the Dialysis Clinic today.  I hope she does!   I know it is a long way from her home and ultimately she will go to a clinic near her home.  I hope and pray that is soon and it is much better!   Now she has to call the clinic the night before her next treatment and find out what time she is to be there.  I've never heard of that before.  Today she is to be there at 5 PM and she says that they won't get home until 10 PM!   The first time she was only in the 'chair' for 2 hours, so I'm assuming the rest of that is grabbing a bite to eat and driving home.  Horrible, and worse that the next time she might have to be there at 7AM and I can't imagine when they would have to leave home.   How awful to not know from day to day what to expect.  I want her out of that place!

I am having so much trouble walking.  I would love some of the exercises you had for your legs ~~~ and the motivation to do them.  I'd better do something or I'm not going to be able to leave my chair.  

I hope you got some good sleep, and have a really great day!

Good Morning.  Welcome to the weekend.

There is so much I should do to make up for all I didn't do the last two weeks, but if you're a betting person, I wouldn't put money on me getting it done. ;-)

Thank you for making our lovely June page.  I know you are tired and have too many other things you have to do, so it means even more that you did it for us.

Barb had her second day of dialysis yesterday, and it sounded to me almost as bad as the first.  This time she was in a nicer section of the hospital dialysis unit, and had a lovely nurse with her the whole time, and Tom was allowed to be with her too, so that made it much nicer.  However, her blood pressure went too low again and she nearly passed out.  As soon as they gave her a saline shot, once again all was well.  Apparently her veins are not large enough to take the dialysis at the speed it is going ~~ or something like that.  She will work with squeezing a rubber ball to make her vein larger so hopefully this won't keep happening.  

Now I "get" that she is in the hospital for her treatments and not the regular Dialysis clinic, so every appointment time will be different and she has to check in the night before to see when to be there.  That sounds unimaginably horrible to me, but she can't transfer to the regular Clinic until her vein is better and she is no longer having low BP.  Then she has to go three days a week instead of two, UNLESS someone else needs to be there four days, and then she can stay at two days a week.   

In other words (Mine!) it's about filling their chairs, and not about what SHE needs.   I would blame Socialized medicine, but I suppose it is the same here, just all for their convenience and not for what is best for the patient.  Mike's dad was on three days a week too, but not having had any other experience with it, we just assumed that was what he NEEDED.  

She didn't say what or if she talked to them about her first experience there, though I know she had planned to.  This is just so awful.


Let's try to have a better day.   See ya tomorrow.

Good Morning.   We wake to more terrible news from London.  Actually, we saw it last night, but it is even worse now that the full report is in ~~ 7 dead, 48 wounded on the London Bridge and in another location.   

Only a month or two ago, the Muslim Mayor of London said that we needed to accept these things from time to time.   How passionately I disagree.  PM Theresa May said "Enough is enough. We cannot and must not pretend that things can continue as they are."     It's about darned time someone said that!   I hope she wins election on Thursday, and I hope Brexit does too, not that it's any of my business.

Oh, my sweet little sister, I'm so sorry you had such a bad day yesterday.  I'm going to have to try to re-read what you posted because somehow numbers have been inserted in place of letters and it's hard for me to decipher.   I got the jest, and that's bad enough.   You surely don't deserve a day from hell ~ in fact, quite the opposite!    I'm here if and when you want to vent, and I'm here if you don't want to vent and just want to sit quietly, too.

I THINK the sprinkler system is working!  No one has officially told us, but it appears to have run last night and there is no water on the stones in back this morning.  We did hear it go on yesterday afternoon (non watering time) and assumed that "they" were working on it, though we didn't see anyone or hear from anyone.  Guess we'll just have to wait and see ~~ and check as much as possible during scheduled watering times ~ and in between.    I love that the HOA takes care of most things for us, but when something like this happens, I HATE not being able to just call someone ourselves and know it's getting fixed.

Barb's wonderful Kidney Dr is supposed to be there in the hospital when she goes for dialysis tomorrow, and I certainly hope he does!   I know she won't "vent" like you or I would, but he really needs to know what she went through if for no other reason than to perhaps prevent some other patient from having the same experience.   I think she also needs a little TLC from him ~ he's been so good to her and she really loves him.

I'm off to fight the Budget Book Wars.   Hopefully I will win.

I hope and pray that today is a MUCH better day for you!!

Love you.

That was my computer typing like that. I think a computer gremlin entered my keyboard and had fun messing with it.  Now today it is fine. Last night I gave up on it. For a couple days now my mom has been hallucinating off and on.  Mostly sleep and oxygen deprivation we think. I found her oxygen off at one point and we think it was off since the day before when an O2 tech was testing her. She has been awake most of the night for days. Then she sleeps in the evening and again is awake all night.

Last night she woke me up 3x. Screaming for me, fearful and upset over non-existent things. She thought we were living in the Salvation Army. She thought she had to go to the bathroom and that she could not get the legs of her chair down because her cart was in the way. The cart is her wheeled walker with seat. So I got out of my bipad stuff only to find that the cart was not in the way. She was not using the remote to bring down the electric chair. It went this way all night waking me suddenly out of sound sleeps. She fell asleep at 6am and slept till 9am. I hardly moved as I did not want her to wake up. I wait on her hand and foot. I am exhausted. I fell asleep for a short while this afternoon. Bud, our landlord, was here, he is going to add a middle rail to the front steps so that mom would be able to hold on on both sides to go up and down them.  While he was here Chris and Scott were fighting like crazy but he had gone to the store. In their apt.  We kept hearing Chris screaming and slamming doors. Scott got out and told us to call the police that she was throwing furniture and grabbing him by the hair and throwing him. We tried talking to Chris but there was no talking to her. She was nuts and out of control.  She got made at us and finally said to mom...I do not work for you any more...F you. I yelled that's it. She came slamming back into the house and said to me pointing at me....Go ahead call the police have me arrested. Then she slammed into her place...Scott had disappeared. I texted Scott asking him where he was as Chris had gone berzerk. He said he would be here in a few minutes. He came and stood in the entry was listening to her slamming things in the apt. Then she came screaming out onto the porch and got even worse. Using foul language shouting to call the police. Bud went down to the bottom of the steps and Chris was still yelling "call the police" when the police pulled up. 3 of them. Chris blamed Bud that he had called the police and he said I have been right here in front of you, I never did. But it turns out Scott went upstairs into Debbie's place and I am sure that Debbie called. She was down here in Chris's place with Scott as soon as Chris was gone. One of the Cops tried forever to calm Chris down but she continued to scream and she finally yelled "it's because I have not taken my meds". It really has been a hell of a weekend. But said to me that that apt would be open. If that is true, we will have lost our house cleaner and laundress.

It really has been a weekend from hell and I am exhausted.

Good Night my friend.

Hugs,

Good Morning, Glories. 

We start the day with another mass killing, this time in Orlando but by a disgruntled ex-employee rather than Islamic Terrorists.  Somehow that seems better ~ and what does that say about the way the world is turning.  

It's going to be another pretty day here, with a high in the mid-80s.  Pretty near purrfect to me.  I hope to do a little work on the kid's cards, but I won't count on it.  My track record of late has been poor.   I did get the Budget Book updated, checked and cross checked finally yesterday.  Sheesh!  I don't understand why everything is so darned hard.  Saying that, I do realize that my problems are very small in comparison to what so many of my friends and neighbors are experiencing.    Nothing Burgers, as Hillary would say.  ;-)

Oh my gosh, what you have been going through!   I feel so bad for your poor mom, but even worse for you.   I really hope getting her oxygen back and perhaps having her get some good sleep too will make a difference.  I can't imagine how you can continue like this.  

Then add Chris and Scott to the mix!  I'm glad Bud was there to witness it all.  I feel sorry for Chris too, but it is her choice to go off her meds.  Clearly she really needs them!   Bad as she is, I really hope you don't lose her.  You can't do the cleaning and laundry normally, and especially not now while you are doing so much more than you are really able to do.   I wish there were some way I could help.  :-(



Last night we watched the newest mystery on Hallmark Movies and Mysteries.  It was about a female archaeologist, investigating a Jamestown dig and starred Courtney Thorne Smith.  I'd heard her name before but wasn't familiar with her.  The movie was entertaining, but nothing to get excited about.   I'm pretty sure we enjoyed it more than we would have watching more episodes of "House of Cards" ~ Ha.  

Wishing you a much better day!

Sharing some news is from my "Hood".   We got this (these) emails from the HOA the other day, and it appears that one of the homes in our neighborhood is going to be a Movie Star!

From the HOA ~~~

Mike Reiffer and I noticed some strange activity in front of the Miller's home today. About half a dozen people on the sidewalk looking at their home. A short time later a woman whose name is Julie Anne Miller approached us and introduced herself. Attached is a letter summarizing what she explained to us. I did Google them and they appear legitimate. Anyway, if all goes as presented, they will be filming the afternoon/evening of the 14th. They will park their equipment vehicles on the "horseshoe" and promise not to impede traffic. And, as the attached states, they will not disclose the location of the shoot. Mike and I OK'd the proposal as it should not disturb us in any way (and will add $300 to our HOA funds).

 

See you at the movies.

Steve

and a Cheery Good Morning to you.

Me, on the other hand, not so much.   I don't think I got more than an hour of sleep last night!   So irritating any time it happens, but more so last night because Sue and John's Moroccan Lunch is today!   We're taking a bottle of Zinfandel and a Lemon Cake for dessert, and I can't wait to see what the rest of the menu is. 

I think I told you that Sue has been having a lot of pain and was going in to see a specialist this last week.  Her choices were to endure, tape it up or have the total knee replacement.  She opted for the replacement and she is having that on the 28th.  In the meantime, I'm sure she is in pain and I feel guilty having her cook for us, but she really wants to make this meal, and beyond assuring her that we could wait until she had no pain, we're just going to go and enjoy ~ hopefully without too much guilt.

Barbara should be back late next week, and she is having her second knee replaced on the 20th.  Several other neighbors have had knee replacements and one also had her shoulder replaced.   I'm living in a Bionic Neighborhood!   Of course, I am somewhat bionic too, with my defibrillator.   Doesn't that just seem strange? LOL

In Dorothy's News Items today ~~ I am delighted that they arrested the 25 year old Intelligence Community Contractor who leaked documents about the Russia investigation to the News!   I think because no one has been punished for all the leaks, and because the Millennials all seem to feel so "entitled", this leaking is not going to stop unless they start to see that there are consequences for their actions.  I feel a little bit sorry for her because she obviously thought she could do it with no consequences, but she needs to be made an example of to prevent others from just willy-nelly sharing our Country's secrets with anyone who seems interested.

She'll probably get an ACLU Lawyer, and sue the government ~ and win. :-(

Edit:  OhMyGosh, I just read about her and who and what she is.  Sympathy for a naive girl all gone now!  She's a radical Leftist who should never have been given Security Clearance!   :-o

Barb said that FINALLY her third dialysis treatment went well!  Hooray!  The first two were horrendous.   She had a good nurse who got her with one stick, and she didn't get sick or dizzy..  Her Dr came by and she was able to tell him about her experiences and he wasn't happy.  He asked her to call his dialysis nurse and tell her.  Maybe that will help the next person at least.

I hope things are going so much better for you and your mom and maybe you are getting some rest.

Sending love and hugs

I am so glad that Barb told her Dr. What happened with her never should have happened and now, maybe, it will not happen to future newbies. You cannot change the past but you can change the future. Yay Barb.

I am sorry you did not sleep last night, I know how much it sucks. Mom was better last night. Just very restless and had the TV on. We both woke around 5ish but mom went back to sleep so I had time to get up and shower. Mom woke about 9am and a short time later had a visit from and old friend.

Bud was here last night and gave Scott notice. As far as I know, Chris is still in jail. Unless Chris gets a place near us to live, she will not be cleaning for us anymore. Unless she does it late afternoon and Scott brings her over. Who knows if she even wants to anymore. Otherwise the program we are part of will help us find people who clean in the city. Family can do our laundry.

I have to leave in half and hour to get my INR done. Then Carole and Gloria are coming tonight. So things will get busy. I need to get ready so am cutting this short.

Hugs.


PS....that is so cool about your neighborhood being in the movies.  I hope you are not too tired to enjoy your meal at your friends home.

I have a haircut appointment this morning, and the installation of the replacement, hopefullly flowering Mock Orange this afternoon..   In between, we could go for groceries or for breakfast or who knows?  In any case, not a lot of time right now.

Sue put on a wonderful lunch yesterday, and I'll tell you about it tomorrow.   Gonna be 80 degrees today!

I'm so glad both you and your mom did better yesterday and the night before!   

Good news/bad news about Scott and Chris.  When they were being good neighbors, it was a blessing.  When they weren't, it was a curse.

Maybe it will be better if you find someone through the program to clean for you.  My cousin Betty had people hired through a program like that in Des Moines, and they did the laundry too when they were there.  Maybe that would work!   On the other hand, and find this out ahead of time if you can, the program hired people who had some mental deficiencies to help their other clients.   Some were still good, but they also apparently felt that part of their "job" was to keep Betty company, visit with her, maybe play games with her, watch TV with her ~~~ and she had to pay for their time to do that.  Then when they were finished working, they would sit down and fill in their timesheets and call in their time, all on HER time..  She paid "The Program" and The Program paid the cleaners, so there is extra charge involved.  I'm sure every organization is different, but just some things to be aware of and inquire about before you hire someone.  

Time for me to get ready to see Hairy Cutt.  Have a great day!

Good luck on your INR, and have fun with the Ladies tonight!

Dorothy

My INR was Tues.  2.8 but she was not sure how to adjust my meds since there was no apparent reason for last weeks spike. So she alternated half and whole dose and I am afraid I will go opposite and be too low next week.  We will see.
Carole and Gloria came Tues evening and they picked up A&W. I had the grilled chicken with fries and a slushee.  Mom had the Shrimp basket with fries and a root beer float.  All was good.  We chatted and then we watched America's Got Talent.  They actually left earlier than usual.  Gloria wanted to get home before dark.
I am having major issues with my email bouncing.  I delete email and it all comes back over and over and over again.  I have tried using live chat to fix it but it times out when they ask you to do something and you start all over again with someone else . After this happening a couple of times I gave up.  I am beginning to seriously consider not using Incredimail.
Today was seeing Lisa Mueller NP in Pulmonology.  Her nurse told me I was there to set up another sleep study and I told her I could not possibly do it as I could not leave my mom alone at night. She said I could talk to Lisa about it.  Lisa turned out to be super nice and she said she could not see anything in the paperwork that said I needed a sleep study for Medicare.  But I did need the SD card from my bipap to print out.  I did not have it as I did not know so she said she would check with Tonya at the Health Shoppe to see when it was needed for sure.  Later Tonya called and it is due now, lol.  So Suz will run it over tomorrow.  Louann took me to the appt.
Chris is still in jail, Scott is going to visit her tomorrow after work. There has been no visitation till now. I wonder how it has gone for her, what with being in jail since Sunday. No alcohol and no meds...I do not think it will be good.  He will tell us when he gets back from seeing her.
I am glad your dinner went well.
Hoping your haircut went just as well.
I think our booklet from the Senior Center has suggestions too for certain services.  I will have to read the paperwork from there and the medicaid service that I have.  Perhaps there are some answers in them.'
Chat with you tomorrow my dear sister.
Hugs,

Good Morning.  

Lovely day temperature wise yesterday here.   I got a good (I think) haircut and then we went on to get groceries.   After they were put away, the guy from Echters came and removed our old non-blooming 8-10 foot Mock Orange, and put in a Miniature that was in full flower.  It really looks nice, but I didn't smell very much of that wonderful fragrance yesterday before the bee chased me inside.  ;-)    Lovely to have it in.     On the driveway side of the front of the house we have two large white Potentilla bushes, then the three lilac bushes (not currently in bloom) and then on the corner of the house, the new miniature Mock Orange with it's white blossoms.   In front  of the lilacs, we have the pots with the (not yet blooming) red Dahilas.  I think it's going to look nice.

By the time everything was done, it was getting pretty tired out.  I took the trash to the curb for this morning's pick up, and we didn't do much more, except watch the last two episodes of "House of Cards".    We didn't enjoy the last season much, and I can't think of anything good to say about this season's episodes.   Rather like watching a really bad movie and staying with it rather than just turning it off because you want to believe it will get better.   It didn't.

I have the bad feeling that I'm not going to get much more done today than I have been.   The last of my birthday gifts for the "greats" came in yesterday, so I need to get those wrapped and get cards made for each of the little ones.  I know I've been talking about getting the cards made for weeks!  Mary Ann is having the big birthday and un-birthday party on the 24th, so I've still got some time.    Jack's birthday is before then (the 16th), so I should get an extra card made to mail him.   I doubt that at age 5 he will care much as long as he gets his gifts on the 24th.   (She says, taking any pressure off of herself.  Ha!) 

I don't understand why she would mess with your Warfarin when your INR was 2.8.   I would think she would at least wait until after your next test to play with it.   Mine was 3.5 the last time and it had been nudging the higher numbers, though still in range.  We cut my dosage in half on one more day, so now three days a week I take half a pill.   No discernible reason that it should be going out of range.   The only thing i have done is add Over the Counter diuretics because I am retaining a lot of fluid.  She said the fluid increase could be effecting the INR, and suggested I come in and see the Nurse Practitioner about getting Prescription diuretics, which should be more effective, but I'm allergic to sulfa, and in the past the Prescription version made me violently ill for about four hours straight.  I'm not anxious to do that again ~ though I guess that would be one way to lose weight.  Ha.   I'll see what happens with the OTC version first.

I'm glad you had such a nice time with Carole and Gloria.

Was Chris  arrested for disturbing the peace, or what?   I hate to think of her without her meds for that long ~ without alcohol might be a good thing!   When do they have to be out of the apartment?

I thought I would share our Moroccan Lunch with you ~ feel free to skip over it.   I've already written a book, and I promise there will NOT be a test.  


Moroccan Lunch

Sue & John went to a Moroccan Restaurant the last time they were in Hawaii, and she loved the food, and wanted to try to duplicate the meal they had.   She pulled the menu from their Web site and then looked for recipes to match.  I don't know how close she came, but everything she made was wonderful ~ and being Sue, she didn't just make and serve the meal, she served the Experience.

I tried to find recipes that i thought were similar ~ not sure how close I came, but I did copy some pictures and at least get the highlights of the recipes to share with you.

She started, as they did in the restaurant, with an almost ceremonial hand washing.  She gave us terry cloth towels and then put a crystal bowl before me, had me hold out my hands and poured warm water over them from a crystal pitcher.  Then she moved on to Mike and John and did the same.   

We brought a lovely Zinfandel which went perfectly with the meal, and John poured that and glasses of water.   (Note to Shiela:  Don't buy that Liberated Cabernet I told you that we were going to bring.  When I had it at Gaetano's, I loved it and everyone else loved the sips I gave them.  We bought two bottles, one to take to Sue and John's and one for us.  Luckily we had one bottle at home to ensure it would be just right.   It was absolutely horrid!   I don't know if the wine they served was a different year or something because I just ordered a glass, or if it had "turned", but it was terrible!   Thank goodness we didn't just bring the bottle to lunch!)

First course was Moroccan Harira Soup, which we drank from bowls.

I'm not sure of the ingredients but I think they included tomato, lentil, chickpea, garbanzo and kidney beans, cinnamon, ginger, onion & cilantro.  I'm not sure what else was or was not included, but it was absolutely delicious..

Second Course, a Moroccan Salad.  Apparently in the restaurant, you eat with your hands.  Sue gave us the option to eat with a fork, and we took advantage of that option.   ;-) 


Again, I'm only guessing at the ingredients ~~ three colors of carrots (which she cut on a spiral cutter), currents, slivered almonds, chickpeas, shallots, garlic.  I know she had dates in it too.   

The dressing would have included olive oil, lemon juice and lemon zest, honey, cumin, ginger, cinnamon, coriander, allspice.   
Delicious!


The Third Course was whole Cornish Game Hens, and hers were much prettier than the picture i'm showing.  


There were lemons, dates, olives stuffed with pimento.  I think you coat the hens with a paste of things like cardamon, cumin, coriander, cloves, lemon
and  add a marinade of vinegar, dry Marsala and honey.

I'm sure Sue had some different ingredients.  I'm just stealing from memory and similar looking recipes I found..

At the end of the meal, again the ritual hand washing because of course it was assumed that we had eaten with our fingers.

We brought a very lemony lemon cake, which was really the perfect dessert, and John served coffee.

We didn't even consider having another bite that night ~ and not much for breakfast the next day, either!
