A sunny Sunday afternoon in downtown French countryside. A gathering of friends old and new, French and English.
Music, music everywhere. children playing their very best, showing skills beyond their years.
Playtime for all, so many kids running, playing and having fun. Drinks on tables, Mojitos filled with fragrant mint, Rose wine, chilled, chilled water and fruit juices just bursting with flavour.
Was there food, well of course – cake. No store bought fancy French confections today tho'. We all made out own specialities and brought them along.
Mine was a simple sponge with wild caraway seeds picked from a friend's meadow, and filled with lashings of my golden plum jam made last week.
Calories, what calories?
French friends, chatting and making me try my best to follow along.
Time passes in a lazy way with no stresses, no reminders of things to be done, jobs to do.
Good music, jamming! The perfect background to the perfect day.
Oh and not forgetting the pets too.
a bientot mes amis.
