Unlike last year when we hosted everyone sporatically over two entire weeks, we had dinner at Nick's mom's house and then went to my Mom's house for dinner, over two days. My Dad and a few others are coming for dinner on the 30th, then we have a couple of friends coming down from Montreal for new years for a couple of days. They came last year too - hopefully it is becoming a tradition, it's a fun one!

Well, I wound up "throwing" a second party. In quotes because my ladies (in their late 70s, one totally crippled by arthritis, one blinded from macular degeneration) asked me to help them get it together to entertain. Their primary care giver worked her patootie off to get the house clean, a daughter flew in from France with her son, they sprang for the booze if I'd invite people and ask them to bring a dish to share. It was a small party, but everyone was thrilled. The arthritic friend hadn't wanted people to visit in the past year or so, so when she asked me, then had her sippy cup filled with wine, she was in heaven, it made my year. It was a small party, but very gratifying.
