Crazy how I can sleep in Seattle. The darkness makes me want to hibernate. In Mexico just about everyday the sunshine wakes me. But here it's dark and I just want to hibernate.
Last night was a nice evening at Marie's parents house. Her Mom was having some fundraiser and had the ladies from her church there for a demonstration by a chef to make tapas. It was fun. Her mother was so gracious and introduced me to everyone as the future MIL. I am not shy so I made my way around and chatted with so many nice ladies. At one point I was chatting with a lady and she was saying "have I met you before?" and Marie came up and jumped in and said "no you haven't met her before but you might have seen her on TV on a soap opera in the past....All My Children" and I decided to keep the fun going and said "Marie you told me you wouldn't bring that up" and this woman said..."well I don't watch too much tv, so I don't think I saw you on TV." Marie just kept digging in further and further and I added to the fun. This woman is a dear friend of the family and Marie told me later that she straightened it out at the end of the night....but she giggled and told me how much she appreciated that I went along with it. Well I love good fun so I enjoyed it. As long as we straightened it all out at the end of the evening. This woman loved that she believed us and said it was fun.
The best tapa was a fig stuffed with almonds and wrapped in bacon and baked until the bacon was done and then they drizzled a sweet balsamic vinegar on it. Yum Yum!
Tonight we go to Marie's parent's house again for a diner party so they can introduce us to more of their friends. So I need to be on good behavior again tonight ; )
I hope you all are having a good day and will have a great week end.
