Good morning! And Happpppy New Year.
Breakfast today consisted of meatballs, mini pastrami sandwiches and some grapes. Oh, and a Diet Coke. It’s a little past noon on New Year’s Day and the dishwasher is on the third load of glasses. Mrs. E. and I finally got to bed around 3:30 am. On the whole, the party went very well.
I say “on the whole” because, as usual, I actually missed talking with some of my guests. And that has to change. If you’re like me, you get stuck at one job, or in one room. I wind up playing bartender and checking on the hot food.
So here’s the Easy and Elegant Life tip for next New Year’s: next year, do “door duty” for the first two hours and then, pass the hors d’oeuvres. You’ll meet and greet everyone.
Off to rest up for the “Hoppin’ John” party this evening.
