I don't even have pictures of my lovely painted walls.
What better time to shop for groceries than 6am? It was blissfully quiet. However Superstore does not have everything I want.
I shopped until about 10am and then cooked until the guests arrived at 6pm. Then we ate and laughed.
It was exhausting. And that was only the party on December 23. Two more dinner parties until we can call it a day, er, I mean, a year.
I am sure you are expecting this was a 'Partridge Family' Christmas! Hah! Are they ever?
I learned a lot from this Christmas dinner. I learned why we should always serve a starter salad and never put the hot food on the table until all are seated.
I could not believe that we placed all the hot food on the table, called the guests and then another cousin decided to completely rearrange the seating plan!
Hot food...haggling over the seating plan...see Sarah seethe! I have never seen anything like it! Hilarious!
Finally I just sat down and let them all work it out, hot food be damned.
Tomorrow I drive out to British Columbia to visit my father and his wife. Perhaps I will get a few pictures? One can only hope.
I hope your Christmas was blessed and I wish you much contentment and many successes in the new year. Thank you all for following me so faithfully over the past year. I promise to be a better blogger when I am nicely settled in my new kitchen, whenever that may be!
