Summer friends, who are neighbors in Colorado, invited us to their holiday party here (in Texas).
Betty, in the red, is the gal I recently wrote about.....featuring her wreath made of wine corks.
Last night was Saturday ..and usually a very social time in the month of December. ...but again there was nothing on our calendar ...since are the new kids on the block. The Kimball Art Museum was having a party free to members (yep, we joined). Appetizers, a cash bar, band and tours on the Impressionist Exhibit (from the d'Orsay in Paris). So, we dressed up, put smiles on our faces, and braved the crowd. Tom and I laughed that these were the people who weren't invited to any other parties (us included)
and there really wasn't a crowd, although very few seats. I kept offering seats at our table to strangers looking for a place to sit. Met a young couple who had also just moved here: they were nice to talk to. Two friends...ladies about our age...one had grown up in Poland...and another couple that sat down, but weren't interested in talking.
This has been a very unusual holiday season ...But, we are going to get through it.
Alone in a sea of faces.... Merry Christmas!
