With the end of summer rapidly approaching, I find myself daydreaming of scenes like this regularly. I imagine simple, yet delicious, food eaten outdoors in the golden light of late summer. A relaxing spot like this one, surrounded by beautiful stonework and a lush green garden. Chairs pulled up so friends can gather around the table. We'd share bread and cheese and fruit, and linger for hours, talking about anything, and everything. Wouldn't you like to join us?
And now for a dose of reality: If you're on the East Coast, stay safe and dry indoors this weekend. Thinking of you as Hurricane Irene makes her presence felt in New York and neighbouring states/provinces. Here's hoping it doesn't end up being half as bad as they're predicting.
