California Countdown

So it is 12 days and counting until we jet off to California. But who's counting? I AM!!! Of course!!!

Yesterday some friends from work came over for a bonfire. We had good fun, laughs around the fire and just a really good time. Not too many people came but that was fine with me because it was a nice small group. Steve came over and helped me find wood for the fire and got the fire started before everyone showed up. Cindy and Joe came over first. I had called and asked her to pick up pretzels for the Zippy Dip. I couldn't really tell if she was glad or mad that I made Zippy. I think glad because she asked for it immediately when she came in. LOL. Zippy is like cocaine in a dip. It is awesome. The more you eat, the more you want. Just when I had given up hope that anyone else would come, Rachel and her husband, Marc, and her sister, Sandy, and their friend named Sam showed up. We saw them turn around in the neighbor's driveway so we knew someone else was coming. Then just when I thought everyone that was going to show had showed up, another car pulls up and it was Julie and Todd. It was really great sharing a couple drinks around the fire with my friends from work. When it got too cold everyone decided to head for home. I had the kitchen cleaned up and the dishwasher running before midnight. We had a good time. So thanks, friends, for coming to my "last official bonfire party" at my home in Sparta.
