The house is quiet. Both Ozzie and Toby the Cat are crashed. The mother and I are watching TV. We debated a shopping trip, but we'll do that tomorrow. Today is a day just to veg out on the couch methinks.
Hard to believe that at this time yesterday there were people all around this table. Now, it's quiet. It's nice to have the house, small though it may be, arranged so that people can GET all around this table. And from there, they can chatter back and forth with anyone in the livingroom. And there sure was a whole lot of that going on yesterday!
Part of the fun of entertaining is dragging out the holiday glassware. See this? This was a gift from my lovely assistant Donna, just in time for my holiday gathering! Isn't it just too cute with its little matching spreader?
I was able to fill it up with some great Wind &Willow dips -- of the red and green variety, of course. (White chocolate cherry and key lime pie. The key lime is probably my all-time favorite.) They're just so good and so perfect, especially this time of year.
You know, there's some of that left, too. I may have to grab me some graham cracker sticks and do a little snackin ...
