Simple Things

Last night, we snuggled up under thick blankets and watched movie classics like "The Princess Bride" and "The Polar Express".

It has gotten very windy and chilly lately, especially at night. So the long, sloppy and loose strands of our holiday lights resembled cartoon Christmas trees in the dark.  We ate left over dinner from the previous night, when a few friends and family member came over to have a (very early) holiday get together.  The lack of theme in the menu became evident when Risottos emerged next to a terrain of Bouillabaisse, dishes of pot roast, a basket of french loaves, and a plate of sushi. Guests brought over Korean and Chinese dishes and we drank Hawaiian beer along with a bottle of Shiraz (Australian Wine).  The holiday cookies in the end, store bought, was a crowd pleaser.  It was not a night of hearty laughs, but plenty of food, warmth and togetherness.
