I got coffee and tea things laid out. You can see that I have some paint touchup to do. I set a few of the backsplash tiles out, so they could see them.
I put out snacks (granola snacks from Costco and seed and current cookies from Trader Joe's) and found enough chairs for everyone. Then I waited for them to arrive. Gale arrived first, then Gerrie and Reva came in together.
We had a little tour of the place and then got down to business.
We were a smaller than usual group, with both Linda and Beth unable to come, but we had a good time. Our first guests in the new house. It's not really ready for entertaining, but I knew they wouldn't mind. They did say they hoped we'd have a sofa and a few other things next time we meet there. I hope so too!
Well at least they got to see the house and sit at that fantastic table. You could always set up a 'campsite' next time, with an inflatable sofa, camp chairs, maybe a log to sit on, around the fireplace and serve smores.ReplyDelete
What a great idea and what perfect First Guests! I hope they left lots of loose thread behind as an omen of days to come.ReplyDelete
You know we were curious, Terry! It's going to be a wonderful home once you and Ray get through with it.ReplyDelete
The colors in Terry's kitchen are a real reflection of her warmth and hospitality. It was fun to see the beginnings of her future home. Even if it is like driving to another country! :-)ReplyDelete
So... when are you having the rest of us over?ReplyDelete
Your choice of colors are very warm and comfy cozy....and I agree with Jane, when are you having the rest of your group(ies) over??ReplyDelete
