Rain or shine the infamous backyard bash is a go, the weather didn't look too promising in the early part of the day, by 2 pm it was humid and sunny, with the odd heavy raincloud passing through on top, thanks for the strong wind, they were passing fast, but often. I made my way to the Party at around 3:30pm, and soon after that most of the other guests arrived. There were friends and family, some people I haven't seen since last year's bash, some I see on a more regular base, like the stitching sisters and their husbands. It's nice to get to know the husbands too, and since one seems to sit with a different crowd each year, one gets to know everybody a little bit more. Like always I had a great time, the food was delicious, the drinks were plenty, and the company was superb. We got rained on a few times, but that didn't seem to damper anybody's spirit, it just diluted some drinks.
By ten the crowd seems to swindle down in numbers drasticly, we moved into the heated garage, since the temperatures were really falling fast and it was getting quite chilly. Somehow there are always the same few left til the end, oddly I am always one of them. lol....and it was almost 1 am by the time I made my way home. I can honestly say this is one of my favourite days of the year and one I look forward too with great anticipation. Well Done, Hostess!
