Just jot jan / #SoCS 7/1/19 - Memento
The only highlight this weekend was the invitation from my friend Monique, who had invited our girl's group to have our first drink of 2019 and at the same time celebrate Epiphany, or Three Kings day, one day earlier.
with a glass of Champagne and the King cake (Galette des rois)
This was our Three King's cake not yet touched. Inside is hidden a "fève" which represents a little figurine. In the past it was mostly religious, today you find everything from a Donald Duck to the Holy Mary. The one who finds the fève in his part of cake, hopefully not bites on it and damages his teeth, becomes King or Queen and has to wear the crown. As we had two cakes we also had two queens. I remained untitled ! Our dentists are certainly disappointed because nobody broke a tooth.
Sunday it was a real "stay at home" weather, grey, humid and cold. I discovered the "Just Jot It" word for Jan 7,which was "memento" ! After having studied the internet from top to bottom or from one end to the other I found out that memento has so many meanings ! It was a movie, several restaurants but also different meanings. I stated with relief that my memento are the fèves because they will always remind me this nice afternoon where we celebrated Epiphany together !
