Partytime

I have been to so many parties lately
tonight was our local writer's group,
next monday is Daughters of Utah Pioneers.
Last week we had our women's group
get together then our church's party
plus a lunch bunch gathering and
a group of neighbors came together
to play games and eat. It's a socializing
time of the year which is good otherwise
we'd all become hermits this time of year
hiding inside from the cold darkness.


Instead we are meeting together and
celebrating the holidays still to come.
Soon Christmas will be here, the presents
all opened and enjoyed, more feasting
then it will be time for resolving for
the New Year to eat smarter and start
exercising better to get fit and healthy.

We are strange habitual creatures
who need each other and connections.

I liked the way you said all this partying is at a great time of year... otherwise we probably would turn into hermits.

The other day I went out to meet my Birthday Club (friends of long-standing) for lunch.... it was on the coldest day of the year so far! But such a lovely time we had.

So, here's to enjoying all our friendships.....

On the mainland, we were very busy with parties at this time of year but here in Hawaii, nary a one. I think it's because we're retired and have recently moved here. Still... not a big deal for me since I'm feeling so sick and I think it's going to be hanging around for a bit. Once Christmas comes and then the New Year, we'll have about three parties to host for the family.

How fortunate to have so many parties and events to attend during the cold and dark season. Friends and families brighten the days!
