WHAT DID YOU DO THIS WEEKEND ?
Helps you to remember what you have done on the weekend of January 7 2012.
+ us and Dominique on the other side of the street
The first weekend in this new year, started with an invitation of our young neighbors, who had moved in our street 3 years ago, replacing the first generation, who had sold their house to them, because the wife died and the widow moved together a little further in the same street with another widow. Now we, my neighbor in front of our house and another couple became the ancestors, the other two houses had been sold due to the owner's age and one divorce.
The young couple had prepared beautiful plates with Zakuskis, which were more than appetizers in buffet style, with Foie gras (special goose liver), prunes wrapped in roasted bacon , and lots of other delicacies and lobster bisque with shrimps and of course the Champagne was not missing either. It was such a funny get together and digging out old memories and telling the newcomers what all had happened in our street during the years. They couldn't believe that I had a cow looking into our french doors in the living room, and that the kids were playing in the fields. Now there are all new houses there.
The young couples's son is a little older than our grandson Toby, but a lot shyer and he also was not at all tempted by all these little nibbles, while Toby probably would have tried to serve himself as much as he could.
We were so full that when we came home at 8.30 pm, I just could eat an apple and Mr. G. had some cheese with grapes !
As rain was announced for Sunday afternoon, I quickly went to the market in the morning to make a little walk because I start to run out of fresh air with this bad weather.
I had bought a Tartiflette for our supper tonight, and just sat in my car again, when it started to rain.
The afternoon went by with blogging and in the evening Dominique came over for our little "Midsomer Murder" evening.
