More indoor skiing and Pampered Chef friendship worries...

I went skiing today. My Man and I snuck off to the indoor ski place with our old salopettes and had an hour of skiing. How bizarre! My main impression was of darkness. Of course it wasn't dark, but as it was inside, with no windows, the overall feeling was... darkness. The thing I love about skiing is the massive skies and the mountain air - the feeling that you are a tiny dot amongst the mountains and sparkling snow, the feeling of freedom. Here there was no sky and no feeling of freedom. That is not to say that I didn't have a good time.After the first few runs where I felt as though I was wearing huge planks on my feet, all went well. I could not stop myself from smiling as I hurtled rustily down the slope.What a lovely way to spend a Wednesday afternoon!!

I am feeling a tad anxious this evening. I am having a Pampered Chef party at my house. You can Google them and look up the stuff they sell - its good. I e-mailed my potential guests last night and there has not been a clamouring to attend. In fact, there has been a marked and stony silence.My fragile self confidence has taken a dive and I am thinking that I may have to cancel if more people, as in.... any people, don't let me know they can come.

Its time like this when I go back to the whole thing about friends. Maybe they all read my post going on about how I liked my own company. Maybe they all thought I could have a Pampered Chef party by myself as I liked my own company so much... Actually, I don't think they read my post as none of them know that I write this blog.... maybe they just don't like me.....

...and after a lovely afternoon, too. Many people are tightening their belts, so to speak, and not spending money. That could be the reason and has nothing at all to do with you.

But, like me, you will blame yourself when it is not the case.

If no one shows, so what!? You will have more treats for the family and you guys can take turns demonstrating Pampered Chef products to each other.

I love the pizza stone, do not know if they still carry it but it is wonderful.
