The weather has decided to be even worse on weekends then during the week, it rained and it was windy in short disgusting.
In the morning both of us were looking for our Roulette game, Mr. G. turned the whole house upside down, inspected closets from basement on and all rooms but it was nowhere and we didn't remember when we had seen it last time. In fact I needed it for Sunday to play roulette with my Scrabble girls.
As we were all blocked in our houses, Nicole, Myriam and I decided to do a little walk through our Shopping center, at least there it was dry and there were a lot of people who had the same idea. Even if you don't need anything it's like a refuge against too wet, too hot, too stormy weather.
It's a nice shopping center not far from us and we did our little window shopping and then had a coffee and a piece of mango cake there in the Lunch Garden. It was nice to see people walking by, we had only bought some nail vanish each. Finally it had been a nice afternoon and at least we got out of the house !
On Sunday it was exactly the same grey rainy day, but we had decided to play Roulette together at Nicole's. We were four and each of us brought snacks and something to drink and then we started.
As I still hadn't found my big roulette but only the jetons, we played with Myriam's travel roulette !
It was really a mini roulette but big enough to play. As we all had forgotten the rules I googled them on my smartphone and we started to play ! It was so funny ! I played very carefully and at the end had earned quite an amount. A pity that it wasn't real money.
We finished and started to celebtrate the Saint Chandeleur (Candlemas ?) which is very much celebrated in France and Belgium. It's a religious holiday that nowadays basically just involves people eating a lot of crêpes. ... Before becoming a religious holiday, Chandeleur stemmed from several pagan traditions ...
Nicole had prepared a stack of very thin crepes which we ate with brown sugar or figs jam. I would have never believed that we four would eat this whole stack ! But we did ! Not one was left !
When we went home at 8.30 pm there was no room in our stomachs for supper ! It was a perfect afternoon with lot of laughter which let us forget the horror weather outside !
