The Universe is screaming at me not to overextend myself this holiday season, and so I’m doing my best to listen. The small family gathering we were going to host today dwindled from a cozy crowd to an intimate affair to absolutely no one coming at all, so I’m taking the hint and taking it easy. Two kinds of cookies is fine for now, and if a few cards get mailed after the 25th, so be it. I’ve got things to do today, but I’ll do them slowly, and we’re going to have an all-day snack party, just the four of us, to eat up the party food I bought yesterday, and all of the other little bits and pieces crowding the fridge. Right now: hummus and three dippers. Later: cheesy spread, grapes, and gourmet crackers. Later still: veggies and dip, with wine. Cookies ad lib throughout the day. Yum.
