It has been a good day, so I say, even if I may still be in a post-lots-of-yummy-food stupor. This morning I hosted a holiday brunch and housewarming party. While many of my friends had other engagements, 25 people did attend. It was a great party. I had made quite a lot of food, and people brought more. People sat and ate and mingled and chatted - it was going well and people ended up staying for several hours. I didn't mind one bit, for I was having fun too. After the last people left, it didn't take too long to package up the leftovers and clean up everything. (Yay for non-stick pans! Yay for leftover champagne to sip while cleaning!) Then I chatted with my parents for a bit, who said they were watching a holiday movie on television, with a fire going in their fireplace. I even managed to wrap all my presents and box them up for shipping. That marks off the list my major 'to-do' for tomorrow, so I should get more time to sew on another gift. There was even a beautiful sunset, with the sun reflecting crimson off the clouds.

It was a fabulous, holiday-season sort of day. it makes me realize again how lucky I am to have so many wonderful friends and family.

Thank you to you all, and may you have happy holidays too!

I am glad your party was fun! We're sorry we missed it.

Congratulations, again, on the new house, and on getting it organized enough for a housewarming party!
