We finally did it. We were able to have a small gathering to celebrate moving into our new home. It was only 10 months after the move, but who’s counting.
Thankfully, the rain held off. It was a bit cool, and very cloudy, but it was still a party and for that I was very thankful. It was really nice to see everyone! Now, it’s true, for the most part I am very happy to live as a bit of a recluse. I am most at ease hanging out with the cats and the dog, and of course Dirk and Cheyenne. But, every now and again, I do like to see our friends. Waiting 10 months to hang out has been a bit longer that I would normally like, even for me.
It was also nice to cook for people again, although, per my usual, I cooked too much. We will be eating potato salad for days on end. I made a ramen noodle salad too, but there isn’t much of that left. Dirk grilled enough meat to feed the whole town, but no worries, Jack the Husky is ready and willing to help him eat it all. Burgers for breakfast and dinner for the next week it seems.
Jack was even thrilled to have guests, there were two young boys over that ran and ran with him. I think this picture is a perfect description of how we felt at the end of the day. Happy, tired and content.
How about you? Have you been able to get together with friends and family now that some of the lock down rules are being lifted around the world? I would love to hear about it in the comments section!
