Little recap of our weekend: Round One of Christmas Party is over.
Friday night was a client’s party and despite my apprehension, it turned out to be a great evening. We had a fun time. We left home earlier and slowly walked there. We stopped at a few shops along the way; I did manage to find a gift for the daughter of a cousin, and it was small enough that Hubby put it in his coat pocket. When we got to the restaurant, I was happy to see that most people were late because they couldn’t find parking. Ha!
Saturday night we both had parties: Hubby’s client and my meditation group. So we left home at the same time, but opposite direction. We both had a good time and came home at about the same time… talk about timing! I came home with a bunch of gifts, among which was a beautiful table cloth with its napkins and rings, and without even knowing it she picked colours that match perfectly with our colours. I was so happy about that, since we didn’t have one that fit our new table.
Yesterday we went for a walk in Old Montreal (again) and I came home with a pair of Christmas socks and an Alessi floss dispenser. I just love those little guys. Isn't he interesting looking?
While Hubby worked on his mountain bike that he’s giving away to a teen who’s mother can not afford a bike for him, I was making six tourtières, in preparation for our Christmas dinner. We now have five left, since we had to “taste” one for dinner; we just had to make sure it was up to our standards.
I just love my new oven! I was able to put in the six pies at once, I’m new to “convection” and just for the fact that I didn’t have to do three baking sessions is amazing. Simply ‘loving it!!!
Today I’ll be preparing some meat balls for my Ragoût de pattes de cochon. That alone will take me a good chunk of the afternoon… While those little suckers are cooking I’ll finish wrapping my gifts. Only 15 days left…
