So here I am retired and what have I been doing ,it has been rather quiet on the blog lately.
Seems like I have all this time yet...... time seem to fly .
I am still trying to organize the new house ( will I ever be done), organizing paper work ( oh so behind), eye test and getting new glasses ( my prescription did change), Blinds came , drapes for dining room, running around to get proper rod.
Living room with blinds down
Close up of blind with the subdued pattern ,called spring blossom, a touch oriental .
Made a trip to Simcoe to register to vote in this area , the election on the
14th, grocery shopped since I held Thanksgiving on Sunday, a week early , went to the OPP station to get a police check for my casual job application, yes I am going back to the hospital were I just retired from.
Baked a pumpkin pie. Prepped the turkey,made mashed potato casserole, an assortment of appetizers , cleaned the house and set the table for 12 for dinner.
Found out my dining room holds 12 easily thinking maybe even 16 without a squeeze.
In the midst of this , did I take pictures?
Yes, of the table prior to every ones arrival , and some of the appetizers but did I take pictures during the visit of my guests and pictures of my guests NO!
So here is my table and my centrepiece I made.
Here is the pic of my apple shaped cheese ball
Link goes to Kraft for the recipe.
Rosanne's pumpkin mini muffins
Did I take pictures of all the wonderful dishes Rosanne, Sherry and Mom made( which were so good) , did I take a picture of the golden brown turkey, of us all dining? No!
Was the dinner good?
Thanks to all for their contributions , from pistachio salad to blueberry feta salad, to corn casserole.
Could this be a seniors moment?
I have decided I will put my lack of people pictures to trying to be the hostess with the mostess!
After all I was busy making mimosas, topping up wine glasses, getting Thanksgiving turkey on the table , etc ,etc, at least that is what my story is and I am sticking to it!
