This is my first real post in ages.

I'm looking forward to tonight. A cozy little get together with a few friends at their flat. I've been invited so many times over there, so tonight I'm bringing a big plant to thank them.

I love the Chandeleur. It was this wednesday, and so far I've eaten crêpes yesterday for dinner, today for lunch, and tonight with my friends. I could eat crêpes everyday in my life and not get bored with it.
Easter is nothing compared to that holiday!

Not only do the French eat a lot of crêpes on Chandeleur, but they also do a bit of fortune telling while making them. It is traditional to hold a coin in your writing hand and a crêpe pan in the other, and flip the crêpe into the air. If you manage to catch the crêpe in the pan, your family will be prosperous for the rest of the year."

Don't you love it when journalists say things that were true 50 years ago, but which has disappeared by now. I never heard of that tradition of fortune telling!

If only I could!

I'll take a picture of the crepes I'm gonna eat for lunch, and think of you when I eat them.

It's the best I can do
