2013 has been very stressful. I don't think i know anyone that hasn't had a death either in their family or close circule of friends in 2013. Tomorrow is the service for my dear friend and religous advisor, my "cousin from a different oven". He has been ill a long time now (in his 40s) but the death itself was very quick very quiet, and completely unexpected.
The family has made the decision to have a small, quiet 'circle' now and a memorial in a couple of months. If you're pagan, you recognize 'circle'; if not, think "small quiet tight group of family and friends not to exceed 15". heh.
I'm contemplating what our contriubiton to the pot luck should be. My initial thought was lasagna --- you make it in big pans, suitable for large groups. Then I remembered that a couple of people have wheat intolerance. Now I'm thinking maybe broccoli and chicken rice casserole.
It'll all work out. And you all will forgive me if my good intentions go the way of the do=do bird for one day, because the extra calories will soothe my mind if not my hips, for this one day.
