A beautiful Sunday with friends

Today is going to be a great day! Some friends and I decided as a mutual New Year's resolution to have small monthly get-togethers this year. It's so easy to let weeks slip by without any contact; everyone is busy and it's easy to put friendship on the back burner, so to speak. We've decided to do something about it this year, and today is the day we chose for our first gathering.

As a mini theme for the month of January we decided on "Beat the Midwinter Blues". We're going to have margaritas and a small potluck of "summery" dishes. (I plan to make miniature taco salads and provide the margaritas and iced tea.) The weather might as well have been special ordered for us; it's going to be 78F today! We're in the middle of a freak January warm spell this weekend, so we will get to have our party out back on the patio. The weather is beautiful, with a warm wind and blue skies. Gus the puppy is coming, too, so even Ginger will have a friend to play with!

It's going to be a fun day.


  1. You devils. Margaritas and tacos.... what is the world coming to!

  2. Sounds like a great idea. I decided to spend more time on close friends as well, and as a first step gave my best friend a get-together in a European city of her choice as a Christmas gift (in the cheapest hostel we can find, of course). Then there will be two concerts to attend with said best friend, and for the rest... everyone else lives close by, so I see lots of coffee, food and games in our future. ^^

    (I totally plan to give a "criminal dinner" in the coming months, where a number of people gathers for food and solve a crime.)
