It's been very wet here lately. We have a little lake on our stone patio. There are moats around the planted areas of the garden. But there was a sunny afternoon recently, and the sky was so blue I had to take a picture of the January azure.
In tidbits of news, yesterday I had 15 ladies at my house from 11:30am until 3pm playing bridge, at 4 card tables. People had to bring tables and chairs, and I just shoved all my furniture to the side in the living room and dining room, and we squeezed in. It was fun. I played awfully since I was so distracted trying to make sure everyone had the coffees and teas they wanted, etc. But I am glad I was able to host. It's my first time. Makes me appreciate all the hospitality I have enjoyed at others' homes. All the ladies are so nice.
We made crêpes again on Sunday, and as usual everyone loved it. For the main course: ham, cheese, fresh basil, tomatoes, sautéed mushrooms, crème fraîche, and sliced potatoes. For dessert: pears and nutella for Jason and Katherine, or peanut butter and nutella for Emily! David did his traditional Crêpe Grand Marnier Flambée for his dessert course and it looked like it was going to burn up the wooden utensils, but they emerged unscathed. I think the kids will remember dad's fun pyrotechnics. Speaking of pyrotechnics, today I cut and cauterized Emily's too-long shoelaces with a match...kind of fun, too.

How you managed to place the burning of the shoelaces in the same sphere as that yummy sounding dinner blaze of crepes, I'll never know! ;-)
I wish I had been there to sample David's creations, and join him in the eating of his own dessert crepe! Love you all so very much...Mom
