When we lived in Salinas, we had parties a lot. Every holiday we made treats, decorated, cleaned like mad, and had a dozen folks over to have fun.
It was so much fun!
And this past weekend, we had a party at our new place. I didn’t take pictures of our guests, because I didn’t want to put anyone on the spot.
So we baked, decorated, and cleaned like mad, and then the neighbors came. Stacy and John and Bella, and Jonathon from next door. Four humans not related to us, here in our house.
We even played Halloween trivia (Stacy and Bella won) and gave homemade voodoo dolls for presents.
We talked about food, history, books, and cats. Bella and Stacy gave Mouse lots of love and scritches, because they are good cat people.
After plenty of food and wine and conversation, the guests headed off and we tidied up, happy to have had our first, but not our last, party here in Portland.
