Yesterday involved a trip down to Victoria. Tim had meetings, I spent the day with my eldest daughter who drove me to a physio appointment (I told her she's being broken in for taking her mother to medical appointments decades from now when I'm very old - )
In the evening we celebrated 3 September birthdays - son Travis, son-in-law Gerry, and daughter Ashley (aka the Bride). We sat around the table enjoying raclette. Some people just can't stick with tradition and come up with new experiments for cooking at the table.
One person commented that during one of our family get togethers he would like to sit in a corner and record the widely varying topics of conversation we engage in.
Laughter, presents, frozen mousse chocolate cheesecake, conversation. It's all good. The saddest part was having to leave the party at 8:30 and drive 2 hours home in the dark. I hope the party continued with more laughter and fun after we left.
Today is drippy and cool with a damp breeze blowing in from the water. It's a perfect day for cozying up with some hot chocolate mix and spiced pecans. I made some of each the other day and packaged up little treats for the kids to take home from the party. After all, who doesn't love a tasty party favour?
