Norm called earlier today to ask if I had a ride which was very kind of him.
People with cars are so generous!
What a lovely area it was in. Very rural and lovely homes out that way.
Here are some shots from the party.

The table was groaning with delicious treats such as crackers and cheese, a spiced fruit dish, rice cakes (home made) and delicious meat balls among others equally delightful.
On the desert side, there was a lovely cheese cake with blueberries, home made banana and also carrot cakes (bite size), ice box cookies and some scrumptious filled tarts.
There were non-alcoholic drinks as well as some wine I believe and water with lemons in it. I found that refreshing myself.
Nobody went away hungry, that is for sure!
After a suitable time, we all gathered in the living room to enjoy reading of poetry. I forgot about that and did not bring the Christmas poem I wrote a few years ago. Perhaps next year?

Quite a few people from our usual group were missing due to illness which is too bad. Winter weather seems to bring on colds and feelings of being unwell.
I think I must have reached my limit for putting on pictures unfortunately. It was a lovely party, in a fantastic and welcoming home and a gracious hostess.
Thanks for dropping by.
