The Holiday season is starting with a lot of parties for me this year. It is nice NOT to be on the road and to be able to attend the parties. Next Saturday we are sponsoring an early Hanukah party with our chavurah (group of friends) from our Synagogue. I've been out shopping for lots of paper goods, decorations, tablecloths, etc. for the party. I'm making latkes and realized I needed to buy an electric fry pan to cook them it, so Dave and I got one at Target today. My major problem is where am I going to put it after the party. We got a "grinch" gift for the Hanukah gift exchange today also.
My condo is having its annual open house and holiday buffet on the seventh. One of the units that will be open is a penthouse so that will be spectacular. The Buffet is always gourmet delicious. As usual, my husband will be on the road so I asked my "other husband" to come with me. No, I am not polygamous, he is just a good friend and his wife and my husband don't object. Some year Dave will get to come to the event with me. I know he would really enjoy it.
My two ASG groups are also having holiday parties with gift exchanges. I went to Joann's and found some notions to which I'll add some fabric from my stash for my gifts. I also bought some Hanukkah fabric there. My grand kids are coming for the end of Hanukkah (Christmas week) and I'm thinking of making them pillow cases with the Hanukkah fabric. At least they won't outgrow the pillowcases! I have to think small as everything will go back with them to California. If I have time and enough fabric, I'll make some pillowcases for my New Jersey Grandkids too! Maybe I'll make some for my Houston great niece and nephew. Oh no! I'll have to open a pillowcase factory in the next two weeks!
