Hello!

Winter at home



Hello there! It's been a while. Two months and nine days is a long time. So many things to say, and even more to share. I don't know where to begin. There were cousins meeting for the first time and one sweet nephew coming to the world. There were sunny mornings and rainy afternoons, warm days and chilly nights; walks on the beach with my father looking for shells and windows shopping with my mother; roasted chickens and head of lamb one day, savory mille feuille and snails stew the other (not on the same day, obviously).

I am back home and it feels so good. I missed my husband, my house, my kitchen, my ugly stove and the snow. Yes, the snow. Though, now, I can't wait for spring to finally be here.

I'll see you very soon, my friends. Let me gather my memories and my photos and I promise to be back pronto . This time with a recipe.

Welcome back! I totally understand the simultaneous relief of being home and sadness for what is left behind. Though we've missed you, you really ought to take your time before posting again!

Nice to see you back, though I hadn't realized you were gone. I've been showing my family a picture which I love of you daughter looking at a turtle. I haven't blogged much of late, partly because we've had way way too much snow. I'm really ready for spring. Usually my neighborhood is blanketed with crocusus by now, and there are only a very few. But spring WILL come.
