C and I drove across town to my mom’s beautiful house, to give her a hand hosting an Easter supper for ten friends.
Mom planned a traditional Czech supper of roast ducks with dumplings and poached pears, I love traditional food from my homeland.
I also love mom’s eclectic house full of wonderful collections gathered by her and my late father over years and years of world travel, including such anachronistic things as a life-sized carved Komodo dragon, a 17C dining room suite imported from a pub in England, 18C tapestries, French quilts, Waterford crystal, old Limoges china, an original Turner, and a large collection of my aunt Vera’s beautiful paintings.
We love mom’s friends, but when a bunch of doctors get together, parts of the conversation invariably turns to statistics, body parts and medical terms we don’t understand. But they’re all generous at explaining…in great detail!
But we did have a terrific time and drove home quite late, under the full moon.
