A Weekend In The Country























No fruits and veggies this weekend. I'm too excited. 

My "baby" is coming home for a week.

Although we talk almost every day, we haven't seen each other for a year. That is definitely the downside of living on the other side of the world.

By special request, since she has never seen the potager laden with tomatoes, cucumbers, herbs and courgettes, I wanted to leave everything in place. Maybe I'll take a picture of her holding the crops.



















































Her special requests included: fromage, fromage, fromage, yogurt ("and not any of your zero fat brands". . . That's easy for someone who has zero fat on her body to say.), butter with sea salt, Maille mustard, Fins Gourmets, several pain au chocolat "and we'll see when I get there."

Et voila, weather beautiful and we are sooooo happy. May even give one of the dogs a bath, unlikely, but possible.

How wonderful to have your baby home, especially after a year. Yes it is so hard when they live on the other side of the world but thank god for air travel.

Have a lovely visit with your daughter!!

Not to pry, but OK, to pry, can I ask how old your baby is now? I really feel for you, a whole year without. On the other hand, it will be so interesting to see how and if they change still now that they aren't, really, if we admit it, babies.

Dear Tish, Having recently found your "blog", I really dislike that word, I must say how much I am enjoying it! It appears you may be my femme soul mate. Your style sensibilites and mine are exceptional. I am so happy for you that your baby is coming home to mama. My baby just left me again for the allure and job possibilites in Washington, DC. Ah, to be 25 again. Well, really, no thanks :). Marguerite!

Tish,
Have a wonderful, happy week with your girl. Getting their favorites in the house helps pass the "waiting" time, doesn't it.
Let us know what she helps you organize this year.
Enjoy
Jeannie

You lucky dog, you! Spoil her senseless! I know how hard it is for my childless friends to relate to my hideous exuberance when my boys come home.
