Family has arrived and presents have been bought and plans have been made: Christmas Eve Day is underway!
I want to thank everyone who sent us Christmas cards this year. This was the first time Geordie and I really put an effort into sending out cards as a couple. It was wonderful to receive cards from people near and far, from old friends and new friends. It made this season that much more special. Thank you!
As a bonus picture, here’s what Mom wanted to buy when we went grocery shopping this morning:
I don’t generally eat brussel sprouts, and I’ve never cooked ‘em before, so this should be entertaining. It’s quite likely that only Mom and Geordie will be eating them, as no one else in the house is that keen on them. I might try one. We’ll see how that goes.
I might not get a chance to post tomorrow, so I just want to say: Merry Christmas, everyone! I hope it’s a lovely holiday for everyone, filled with laughter and love and joy and hope for the coming year. Much love to you all!
Geordie’s office Christmas party was this past Saturday. Since it was at a nice hotel and a nice party, guests were asked to dress appropriately, which meant semi-formally. Which further meant a cocktail dress for me and jacket and tie for Geordie.
It was not the best Christmas party I’ve ever been to. The food was mediocre (various hors d’oeuvres, some unimpressive cruditès, and a potato masher bar which didn’t open until after we had filled up on less enticing fare), the music was loud, the rented room was too small, the people were plentiful, and the holiday movie shown in the courtyard was Jim Carrey’s “The Grinch.” It was . . . well, it was pretty average. Certainly not the highlight of the weekend. But it was good to go and meet a few more of the people Geordie works with and to see co-workers I’ve already met.
Next weekend will also be a busy one, but hopefully with better food. We’re having dinner at European-style restaurant with a focus on French cooking. Very much a Christmas present to ourselves! I’m looking forward to it. While it has been much fun learning how to cook French food for myself, it’s always enjoyable to go out and have a meal that’s prepared by an expert. Bon appètit!
