Hiya BetterMost friends.




Christmas weekend is here!

I've been busy today!  Since I'm having my small luncheon tomorrow, I needed to get laundry done today.  I managed to get that done, get to the bank, and get some cleaning done in the apartment.   All of my wrapping is done now too.

I still have more to do around the apartment, regarding cleaning the bathroom and mopping the floor, and picking up my groceries today. 

Once I get the groceries packed away, I'll do the mopping.

Tomorrow I need to pick up the lunch meats, sushi, and cupcakes for Christmas Day, and then get home and prep the platters.

Hiya BetterMost friends.




Christmas Eve has arrived!

The luncheon went very smoothly, and most of the food went.  What didn't I was able to wrap and save for meals during the week.   I'm sure I'll be getting leftovers from tomorrow too.

My sister-in-law has planned a meal of chicken parm, penne ala vodka, meatballs, salad, garlic knots, cavatelli & broccoli. 

For dessert she has a fruit tart, peanut butter pie, and I have a bunch of cupcakes, two of the vegan, for Trent who is dairy allergic.

My second Christmas alone.
Actually I had one way back in 1976 in Avignon, France when I had a picnic lunch (do not remember the details) and made the mistake of ordering agneau - lamb for dinner at a restaurant but not recognising cerveaux - brains. I will never forget that French word again.
Today, after going to Midnight Mass in the cathedral, very late night for me, bed at 1 am, I had usual Fruit juice and cereal for breakfast but finishing with toasted Swiss (Zpfe) bread and cheese. Then with morning coffee I had a fruit mince tart. Lunch was 3 courses. Smoked salmon, capers and wheat biscuits to begin then cold chicken with apricot flavoured stuffing (do not like turkey very much), sliced ham, potato salad and garden salad with avocado and garlic dressing. A little lie down (a bit difficult with company) before heated plum pudding and brandy cream. All combined with a few glasses of Central Otago Pinot noir. I decorated the dining room table (rarely used for dining) and got out good dinnerware and cutlery.
Not sure if I will get into the garden this afternoon, a beautiful sunny day in the South Island, apparently heavy rain, floods and road slips in the North Island.

Sounds like it was a pretty restful Christmas for you!

I hope there's not a lot of damage on the North Island!

Home again!

I was out today about 11:00, spent time with my parents, and then over to my brother and sister-in-law's place.  Stayed there until 5:00, had a good lunch, opened gifts, and now I'm home, and tired.

Bed will feel good tonight!

Back to work tomorrow!!

Hiya BetterMost friends.




Getting ready for New Year's Eve, and I'm not doing anything now.   :laugh:

My friend Tina, who hosts every year, is sick and sent a mass text to everyone apologizing, and saying the party is off.  She told us today so that we can find other options.  I'm thinking that for a change, I'll spend a New Year's Eve at home, enjoying the peace and quiet. 

I'll make myself a nice meal, relax with TV and computer, and sleep in the next day.

;D

It's not a national holiday, the banks are open.

I'll probably do the same. I don't really like going out on NYE anyway, especially if I have to drive, which I almost always would.

Hiya BetterMost friends.




TGIF!

Left work a little later today than usual, but because of the holidays, there wasn't a lot of traffic, so I got home quicker than usual.

I have some baking to do tomorrow, I have a party to go to, and I have extra pepperoni from my luncheon, so I'm going to make some stromboli.   Other than that, and laundry, it should be a quiet weekend.

Work on Monday, but I should be able to leave early, so I'm happy about that!
