The If we were having coffee… I would welcome you to my home and to the New Year. I would also pour you a cup of something hot because winter has finally arrived here in New Jersey! Hooray! The poor confused plants in my yard didn’t know what season it was. The lilac bush was sprouting leaves and the hydrangea had buds. I can’t believe I’m saying this, I am most definitely a summer girl, but I was excited to see frost on the windows this morning.
After, I was done babbling about the weather, I would ask how your week has gone. Did you ring in the New Year in a quiet way or did you usher it in with a BANG!? We did quiet around here. My mother-in-law the amazing MJ traditionally spends the night with us. We played games (Clue), ate snacks (lots of left over cookies), and drank wine (well, she and I did, at least 😊).
We also re-watched the season finale of “Sherlock” so we would be ready for the season premiere on January first, which, by the way, was FANTASTIC! It was a bit challenging to follow but, I don’t want to say anything else in case some fans out there have not seen it yet. We recorded it and Miss Dee, Hubby and I are planning to watch it again tonight just to pick up all the fun stuff we missed the first time around. For anyone who has never had the pleasure, I highly recommend it. The game is on!
If we were having coffee…I would share that Hubby and I had a very nice get together with friends last evening. We called it a “Holiday Wrap-Up Party.” Aren’t we clever? 😊 We try to have one most years just as a chance to reconnect with some old friends and get to know the new ones better. We had a nice group, both friends we’ve known since high school, and people from right here in town that we have met more recently. It’s always fun to see the connections that are made when you bring a group of people together from what seems like totally different worlds. There were some very entertaining conversations!
If we were having coffee…I would tell you that I needed to cut our chat a little short this morning because Hubby and I are heading out this morning to visit his Uncle who is in a rehab center following a stroke and triple bypass surgery. We hear he is doing well but it will be good to see for ourselves and hopefully hear more about his adventures. Apparently he has been giving the physical therapist some grief because they won’t let him travel around without assistance! I can understand why they would frown on that.
Thanks so much for stopping by and sharing the first Coffee Share of 2016 with me! Don’t forget to visit Diana at Part Time Monster so you can check out the other participating blogs.
