There are quite a few people on staff at my new school.
We have over 600 students enrolled and it is a dual track school, both French and English are taught in the 22 divisions. It is the school that my own children attended and curiously I attended kindergarten there as well!
(many moons ago!)
The party was held at the home of one of my colleagues. Her home is modern, large and has a great layout for entertaining. Over 50 people were in attendance!
We were asked to bring an appetizer or dessert and something to drink.
If we wanted to participate in the game "wine survivor" we needed to bring a bottle of wine for each person that wished to play. Everyone got their name entered 3 times and every 15 minutes 3 names were drawn from a bag.
The last 3 names to be drawn won the wine.
The last name drawn got 15 bottles to take home, the second received 8 and the third got 4.
Mr. HB was fortunate enough to make 2nd place and so we toted home 8 bottles and our wine rack is no longer empty!
We have served a few bottles to our guests already.
The Roast Beef Sunday dinner was enjoyed with a Cabernet Sauvignon.
I have been preoccupied with Christmas preparations and the renovations so my posting has been rather sporadic.
I know that I am not alone in finding that time is full of things to do
and there do not seem to be enough hours in the day to accomplish what is written on my list.
I do find it very satisfying to cross things off and look at a shorter list.
Holidays are on the horizon
and I will be looking forward to sleeping in later
and savouring life in the slow lane.
How about you?
Are you ready for the festive season?
