Friends we were expecting to arrive mid-week for a day or two (already a week later than originally anticipated) are arriving this afternoon, perhaps for two or possibly three days. So there is a sudden whirl of activity going on in preparation.
Dinner this evening:
Salade de boudin noir
Tarte aux fruits à l'ancienne (pictured below)
Almost as soon a they leave, I have to return to England for a week to see my sister who is over from Canada. We have to discuss What To Do About Mother.
