We have been so busy that we haven't made the time to visit our neighbours and friends this holiday time.  It was suggested that we have a get together for some Christmas cocktails.  We invited a few friends over on Sunday nite (you can do that when you and all your friends are retired or in the off season like Ute).  7 o'clock was the anticipated start time but John and Linda and Ron and Marty showed up shortly after 6:30  Thank goodness I like to be ready and relaxing a good 1/2 hour before company starts to arrive.  I was ready.  Even my punch was made - I just had to add ice.  Around here everyone brings their own beverages to functions so I had to drink the majority of the punch.  No Problem.  We made partridge appetizers dipped in maple syrup, cheese and grapes, chips - Mary brought over meatballs in her home made bbq sauce (yummy) and Bob brought over escargots in garlic butter and Ute made a spinach cheese wrapped in puffed pastry.  There was also a goodie plate that went fast as well.  It was a lot of fun.  Next party is New Year's Eve at the usual spot.  Everyone had a good time and they were all gone by a decent hour.  My kind of party.
Linda always has beautiful nails and last nite was no exceptions.  She did them in a deep cherry red with single line of gold sparkle paint at the cuticle line.  I have never seen this done before and it was stunningly beautiful.  She said they reminded her of Christmas tree ornaments and they did!!  Well done Linda!!

See Ya Bye
