Simply week-end

Well another week-end went by & here I am, faithful to my Monday'post. For once it was a sociable week-end as we've been out on both nights to some nice dinner-party & evening, with some fun & interesting people. So we allowed ourselves to spend the days on a slow mode, enjoying simple things such as cooking & eating, baking (must I still mention it?), working in the garden, taking naps, watching DVDs, having love-filled talks... A harmonious one, where everything seemed to fall into place so naturally &... [Lire la suite]

Week-end report

To start with I've got a great news... Ticoulou's back!! Helas since Sunday morning {when we left for a day on a boat with a few friends} no news of him. So today was the 3rd day without our lil kitty & I thought there was now not much hope left to see her come back. And must I say that I was grumpy & moody all day? Well yeah. Our house felt lonely without her. Our couch felt empty. But... while cleaning the house this afternoon, I heard a meow from outside. At first it was a faraway & shy one. Then it came closer. So...

Petit sejour a Trou d'Eau Douce

            Kitesurf a TDD B. is away visiting a friend tonight & I am on my own... but I must admit actually that I quite enjoy being by myself sometimes. B. insisted that I invite a friend, but I didn't feel like it. I rather felt like having a relaxed evening, baking some cantucci, watering my veg garden, exercising a lil & watching a fleur bleu movie with a plateau tele made of a risotto au fromage blanc & potiron, with a side salad of rocket from the garden, & a cantucci...

full on week

"Not all who wander are aimless. Especially not those who seek truth beyond tradition. Beyond definition."Indeed it's been a specially tough week- it's been like a wave of bad things & disasters falling over the world, from faraway places (Italy) to close people (friends & family)... In the middle of all that pain, I usually tend to close myself as a way of protection... but I didn't this time; It's actually much more true & loving to allow ourselves to feel the pain. To let compassion fill us. To let our prayers... [Lire la suite]

A few tarts to keep us going...

                       tartes... What makes the cooking & savouring even more precious is sharing these moments & homemade goodies with friends. That's what we've been doing with the Swiss'gals here, in between moving around & enjoying various bits of the island. Already inspired by this gorgeous book they offered me with bananas'recipes... I tried the Mam'zelle tatin for an afternoon tea or dessert! Mmmm...!     ... [Lire la suite]

             Picnic a la Prairie I have to say, last week-end was pretty busy... pleins de trucs qui s'enchainent... but enjoyable things altogether.Meeting new people, having a picnic made of aubergine, roquefort & pecan nuts'tartlets at the beach, enjoying the warm sea, the hamac, the sun, the rain to finish, just the peaceful moment...             Pesto on cheese focaccia Nicely followed by a friendly cooking session, made of pesto served...

Boulangere en herbe

The rain's pouring since 3 days & makes this afternoon seem like already dark. Alone in the house, a cupa calling me... & my macbook too, i'm now sitting at the kitchen counter ready to share a few photos & inspiration.                            Fondant choco-poire Actually before each period of productivity, there is one of procrastination. But the fact is, that behind this apparent procrastination there is a pondering, a... [Lire la suite]
