What a moment! The last golden leaves shimmer in the tree tops while rusty colors carpet the ground beneath. The days continue to be crystal blue but with a nip. We have a fire each night.
Emily and her family were on the East Coast for the last three weeks. Jos has a show there and the family went along for the ride. In France there is a two week school vacation around Halloween.
Jos and his friend Marcello are playing at the Brooklyn Theater for a New Audience. The run continues through the end of the week.
The theater put the family up in a charming Brooklyn neighborhood where the kids got to experience American-style Halloween.
The weather was wonderful for them, just as glorious there as it has been here.
They visited Central Park, the Natural History Museum. the NYC public library and Times Square. It was actually not the first time the family has been there, as Jos plays in NYC for time to time.
They arrived home on Saturday and since Sunday was RIck's birthday, we took the opportunity to close up for a night and have a visit with them in Paris. The first thing Zinnie did when she arrived home was to open up her costume trunk and find a princess outfit to put on.
The whole family made dinner together, pot stickers, spring rolls and noodle soup.
I love Paris where you can always find exotic food shops open, even on Sundays. The feast was delicious.
Topped off with a fabulous homemade buttermilk cherry cake and sparkler candles.
Work started up again on Monday for us, so we couldn't linger, but coming back home is always a pleasure anyway.
