This past Saturday night I had five pals over for dinner …

A buddy came over and cooked Italian (of course!) for all of us! Here’s the salad on my dining room table – with all its wee tea lights a-sparkle!!


My pal gave me the nicest hostess gift! A set of Christmas tree ornaments. I put one up today on my white dining room table tree centerpiece! He has always said I have the best view of Worcester, living so high up! This is supposed to be the skyline from my Woo apartment window. Cobalt BLUE! Lovley!


I have the best pals! I didn’t even mind washing all the after-dinner-party dishes and glasses and cups and forks and … ! Yipes!!!
