coffee & cake



MariannaTerryVisit2012.jpg


Yesterday, we had friends Marianna and Terry come for a visit. The time flew as we talked and talked over coffee and cake in the European tradition, as Marianna wrote, so common to Germans, Swiss, Finns and others. Soon we realized it was nearing dinnertime, and talk was still flowing, so instead of their rushing back to Terry's cousin's place over town, we went out to a local Greek taverna for dinner.

Some exciting entertainment was provided by a sudden extreme downpour, thundering like hail but not, and coming down the sloping glass skylights like a waterfall. Have a look at the photos at Marianna's blog too!

This has been the third get-together for Marianna and I, thanks to meeting via our blogs. Last year the husbands joined us and we've cemented a nice friendship. Thanks for the visit, Marianna and Terry, and may we meet again soon!

Oh! and a Happy July 4th to all our American friends and family!

I love the picture of rain on the window.

It's great to visit with blog friends. Jerry and I mean to come up to Vancouver soon and will stop to see you and Fred.

I remember coffee and cake with my European friends. It looks as though you had a wonderful time and a very exciting dinner!

I wish I'd been there! It all looks so welcoming and delicious, in every respect. Very best wishes to you all, Marja-Leena and Fred and Marianna and Terry.
