Saturday after church we went to our favorite Mexican restaurant with Terry and Carol. Ted shot on Sunday and after dinner we watched the second last episode of Amazing Race. I was excited because one of their stops was Mallorca, Spain where we had just been. They had to do a challenge inside the bullring that I have a picture of in a previous post and the Pit Stop for that leg of the race was the Belver Castle that also is in the post. Doesn't sound like much but I thought it was really neat! I am easily amused.
I played Canasta yesterday and scored in the middle. We have been playing so much Shang Hai I had to wrap my mind around Canasta again. I didn't have good cards all afternoon but my scores hit the average mark but average doesn't win. This is the $1 group so you don't lose or win much.
Today is the lull before the storm because tomorrow starts up a couple very busy days - both day and night. In the midst of all that I need to do some "grooming" at the nail and hair salon in anticipation of the holiday parties.
We have invited a few friends over for Christmas Day for a casual buffet and a game of Shang Hai. It seems there are several couples whose children are coming after Christmas like ours or are leaving on a trip a day or two after. There is no reason for all of us to be home alone on this special day. And besides, I get to use my new Christmas dishes I bought last year.
