French Sabbatical

My family's year in France…

Day 198 (14 January 2011) – Friday Night Knitting Party

The dinner dishes are done, school doesn’t resume until Monday (Ella went back today, btw), and it’s that great time on a Friday night when your whole weekend is before you. I don’t know about the rest of you, but I’ve got a craving for The Brady Bunch and The Partridge Family. Either that or some high school football.

Instead, the house has been taken over by a group of women and girls. Okay, so “taken over” is a bit over the top. Melinda, Chloe, Ella, Christine, Celeste and Claire (not a Marcia, Jan or Cindy in sight) are all sitting around the dining room table. Melinda and Chloe are giving knitting lessons. I took this picture less than 5 minutes ago of Melinda telling Celeste just how much fun a ball of yarn can be. Just ask a cat. And Melinda’s last name is Shaw which sounds like chat, the French word for cat. So it all makes sense.

No, I haven’t been drinking.

Well, I did make smoothies. You can see Celeste’s empty glass in front of her.

Speaking of Celeste, doesn’t she look older? I mean take a look at this blog posting from last summer to see a younger-looking version by the pool.
