A Nice Day

Well, my little get together today was very nice. Three of my friends made it over, and I was very happy with my arrangement of the snacks. The weather was also pretty close to perfect so we ate outside at my picnic table.

The whole spread: grapes, raspberries and cheese cubes; a selection of finger sandwiches, including peanut butter and jelly, nutella and banana, turkey and cheddar with pesto, and cucumber with cream cheese; brownies; and a selection of drinks, including iced tea, water, hot tea, or orange juice.

The cucumber and cream cheese seemed to be an especial favorite. I could see why: refreshing, not too sweet or salty, and a classic tea sandwich. I guess my party turned out not so much like a "tea party" but a snack party with board games.

So, we had our snacks, and played Scruples, a "what would you do if...." sort of game, which was really fun and brought lots of laughs. Two of my friends left after a while to go shopping, then my other friend and I hung out for a while longer and watched The Science of Sleep. Very interesting movie, even when this was my 3rd time seeing it. My friend had not seen it before so it was neat to show it to him. His evaluation: "kind of strange but also really good."

I will have to do this sort of thing again sometime. It was really easy to put together, and I pride myself on my accommodating hostess abilities. If I were to attend a party, I would love for it to be just like the party I gave today, or similar. 


  1. Sounds like a wonderful day, Jen. Good people like you deserve these moments. May you and your friends have many more great days ahead. Should our electronic paths not cross through the holiday, safe travels...

  2. Thanks Al :). I am going to try to have another little party within the next couple months or so. Have a good holiday too!
