Last night we cleaned up after the party so today I didn't have much to do. I spent much of the day on the couch. I watch a Hallmark movie that I recorded back on February (gosh, was it that long ago?), and caught up on some TV episodes. I think I fell asleep at one point. This way I will be ready for this week.

Here is a photo of the food table from last night. 

Folks were so nice. We had said bring no foodstuff folks brought cake, wine, champagne, juice, a poinsettia, cookies, all sorts of stuff!  We have a dining room and a living room. I set the living room up with a sorts of places to sit. For the first 2.5 hours not one person sat down! Everyone hovered around the dining room table. Which is funny because Brenda and I had this argument/discussion about whether to use our little dining room table or bring up the big table top. Brenda wanted to bring up the big top and push it up against the wall. I said no we should use the little table and keep it in the middle of the room and let people walk around. We ended up using the little table mostly because we were too tired to bring it up the stairs. Half way through the party Brenda came up to me and said "you were right, it is better with the little table. The food is crowded but the people are happy milling around it." 

We had too much food. I took some of the leftover veggies, some tofu and made a stirfry for dinner.  I made enough for tomorrow's lunch too. 

I have these really dry hands. I am not sure why. I wonder if it is the Sjogren's or what it is.  It is horribly painful. Between my fingers is so cracked.  I have to figure this out. Any help is appreciated.

Tonight I am watching the Survivor finale.  I love to see this show. I could never do it. Not because I could not be away but I could not go without food with my meds. 

Until tomorrow...

  1. Not too long ago I picked up a tiny tin of Nivea cream at the grocery store. It cost a dollar, I think. Nivea used to break me out, years ago, but I thought I'd try it again. Well! It doesn't break me out or irritate my skin any more, and it makes it very moist and soft. That moist/softness lasts for a good 24 hours, too. I've started using it on my hands, too, and I love it. I'm definitely a Nivea fan now! Maybe it will work for your hands?

    It's so great when people not only come to your party but also really enjoy themselves and the food! Sounds like you and Brenda infused your party with just the right amount of holiday cheer, Adrienne!


Would love to hear what you have to say!
