summer corners






Doing lots of summer reading: The Kitchen Diaries, The Summer Book
Doing lots of summer cooking: gin and tonics, clam and corn chowder, zucchinni fritters, peach and plum cobbler
Doing lots of summer things: early morning walks, afternoon beach visits, late evening dinners
This weekend: the flea market on Sunday, as long as it doesn't rain. Please don't rain!!!
I'm feeling the mid-August mix of emotions: bittersweet excitement for the shifting seasons.
Have a great weekend, all!

Gin and tonic, that's it, I knew I have been missing something today!

Summer is beautiful, especially in America, it is warm almost all the time!

Bohemian Girl, Andrea, and Mansuetude, it's nice to know that the gin and tonic has followers everywhere! I will think of you three the next time I drink one :)

Angie, I'd love to hear how your fritters turn out. Ours were good, but got a little burned. I need to work out the kinks in the recipe.

Elizabeth, my brother, cousins and I used to read Tintin like crazy growing up. Now my son is into it too, and I love re-reading them.

Mrs. French, the weather is looking hopeful. Maybe I will have some fun stuff to show you on Monday?!?

Thanks, Anu! I hope your weekend is lovely too!

I've read all of the Tintin books too! I'm such a big fan! And it's so funny to see that Tornasol in English is called Calculus

Jill said...

oh, another fun thing we have in common Esti! do your princesses like Tintin yet?
