The Weekend Update

Yesterday we rummaged through our wine cellar looking for something different to take us away. We found a few bottles of "Marilyn Merlot" that we bought a few years back. It was surprisingly tasty. I briefly retreated to the Library, my favorite room of the house. It is such an inviting room, rich red walls, chocolate-brown crown moulding, brown leather sofa, comfy side chairs, and books galore. I can lose myself in the Library, it has loads of character and mood...perfect to curl up with a glass of wine and a good book. The "Marilyn Merlot" was a perfect choice to unwind.
Sunday Dinner Party

On Sunday evening, our friends Gary & Pete hosted a casual dinner party for 12. We enjoyed a few cocktails and exchanged witty banter before dinner. Behind the bar, they had an unusual vase with the most beautiful birds of paradise; I just had to take a photo. After a sumptuous dinner, Gary served a delectable cheese cake covered in fresh fruit. It was delish!

"A casual dinner party for 12"?? And they just whipped this up like it was nothing I suppose? I can't even begin to contemplate such an endeavor, I have trouble enough making dinner for myself and my daughter!

Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment over on my blog, I appreciate it and will have to spend some more time over here as you've got some interesting posts.

I just have to ask though - is that really your house over on the sidebar? It looks more like a mansion than a house!
