Anna is a busy person, but she seems to take on what comes her way with gladness, as coming from the Lord. And she uses what's available as if it came from God's hand, too. She hasn't said this to me, but that's my take on it - and I think I'm right. She doesn't want to waste time, so she won't be found wringing her hands over things; she just does what she can and then enjoys the rest. No looking back, like Lot's wife. ; ) So I told Deb to just look around at Pleasantview Schoolhouse and she'd find plenty of inspiration.
She works full time and cooking all the food wasn't possible, so she got our favorite luncheon spot to cater - we made the appetizers. But, get a load of this salad - they know the importance of presentation:
They also put a nasturtium on the pasta salad! (that's why we love going there)
gluten-free lemon cupcakes from a local health food store - there was a cake, too
Entertaining on that scale was new to both of us, very interesting, and original, thanks to blogging friends.
