Now for my Sunday dinner with friends. We were not sure of the weather for this day. Our sunshine had disappeared and the winds were picking up. Finally about half an hour before they arrived I decided to take a chance on the weather and I set the table.
We don't get the hot sun back there anymore since the trees have grown so big. Not that it was sunny that day. Of course Maxine is right there hoping for a place setting of her own.
It is funny how the wine glasses have disappeared in the photo. I should have poured some red to help them show up.I have started to use tea towels as napkins as they are much bigger and stay on the lap easier. They are soft and very washable too. Not to mention they can soak up a whole lotta dribbles.
My dripless candles were apparently not cooperating. We also had to relight them a couple of times when the ice cold wind blew in. Us ladies were wrapped in afghans shortly after dinner. We finally gave up the challenge and went inside to enjoy dessert.
