They sneak up on you and suddenly are all around. We had our first Christmas party to attend on Wednesday afternoon. Not actually a party, a lunch with Ralph’s sisters and their husbands and his cousin. We’ve gotten into the habit of doing it and it’s a lot of fun. Wednesday was a nasty day for it though.
It started pouring rain during the middle of the night and really didn’t slow down much all day long. Luckily for us, we don’t have far to go. In fact we travel the least distance to get to our usual meeting place, Adelphia Restaurant. I’m not sure why this has been the chosen spot, but yesterday I was glad. It was such a cold wet day with the wind blowing the rain on an angle.
The restaurant was beautifully decorated for Christmas, but I forgot to take any pictures. I was so wet when I got there, I just wanted to dry out and warm up.
It was great to see everyone.

I tried to take a photo of Ralph and Me…will I never learn?? 😦
John did a much better job! Thanks, John!
My HUGE Greek salad. I’ve had some issues with trying to find something I can eat at this restaurant. They have an enormous menu, but nothing I can actually eat. Thank goodness I figured this out. It’s not even on the menu. But I couldn’t finish it all. I didn’t even have any of their delicious bread. I think the old hint about wearing something tight is the truth. I wore a pair of the jeans I found last week in my digging through storage bins. I need to wear them again!
It did leave me with dinner!
My leftovers were delicious with just the addition of a little shredded cheese. Filling too. I had some saltines with it and my only snack later was a tangerine Tootsie Pop. Good thing too because I’m going to Weight Watchers this morning since I’m going to Maine with Gail and Alice on Saturday. I’m going today mostly because the updates to the Points Plus program come out this week. I want to know what the changes are so I can head into the holidays in good shape…literally and figuratively!!
I may not be able to post everyday while I’m away, but I’ll do my best. Of course I’ll give you a full update when I get back. 😉
After such a nasty day on Wednesday, it does seem like it will be a clear day today although it’s very cold and damp. But I was rewarded with a beautiful sunrise.
There’s my funny old tree again. Love having that in my photos!
