Best Friends

photo by

There is nothing ike having a best friend.
We are fortunate if we have more than one but one will do.

This darling glittered picture was sent to me by my seven year old Australian neighbor Circe.  I can't even put in words how excited I was to receive this.

From the urban dictionary comes this perfect description of a best friend.

"Best Friends are very special people in your life. They are the first people you think about when you make plans. They are the first people you go to when you need someone to talk to. You will phone them up just to talk about nothing, or the most important things in your life. When you’re sad they will try their hardest to cheer you up. They give the best hugs in the world! They are the shoulder to cry on, because you know that they truly care about you. In most cases they would take a bullet for you, coz it would be too painful to watch you get hurt".

Thank you my best friends for being there.

Food from a Foody

Living in the French countryside gives me the chance to visit many market towns and farms in this area.

Yesterday I bought this lovely assortment of fruit, vegetables and cheese for lunch. I bought the fruit from a fruit farm, the goat cheese topped with spices from a goat farm and the vegetables at the outdoor market.  Sitting by the pool and eating this gorgeous food, what could be better?

The thing that makes this food different than what we might get in the big cities is that nothing is picked until it is ripe.  You need to eat what you buy every day as it doesn't last very long, that's a good thing. It does keep you busy shopping, but this is the country so why not?

This assortment of dried fruit at a market in Aix en Provence is just gorgeous.

Come to France, don't miss the markets.  They are plentiful, beautiful and delicious.
