Back from the country.
Got my flu shot. Arm hurts like a mofo.
I woke up to snow today. It has since melted.
The end of the semester is upon us and really...all I want to do is hide under the blankets. Instead, I procrastinate and blog :D
Ok, I'm done with this tiny sentence business. It feels like I'm just typing up Facebook statuses.
While I was in France last year, I spent some time with the ones I call my second parents. They're a French couple who were my parent's best friends and we spent every single holiday, football world cup, birthday and random moment together until I turned 12. That's when they moved back to France. So I went to see them last year not only because it had been a trillion years, but mainly because my second mom was battling cancer. With her husband, we spent 2 days talking about my parents, all the crazy things they did, all the stories I never heard of or thought were just myths and then some. We laughed a lot. Right around Easter, she lost that battle. It was a very hard time for my family and for me. It's part of the reasons I stopped blogging and knitting. I kinda went blank for a bit after.
There was talk of heading to France for the funeral, but it was really too hard. I was the last member of my family to see her. Anyhow, in the time I spent with them, I found out about a tradition they had with my parents and a few other friends starting in the 70's. Every year, for the first snow, everyone would pile into their car and head over to one family's house. Then they'd make crêpes. Tons and tons of crêpes.
So when it started getting cold I boldly announced to my parents that I was reviving the tradition and invited everyone i know to come over for what have now been dubbed "snow crêpes". It's a nice little testament to my aunt I think. To me it's a nice way to remember her (considering she may be the best cook I've ever known) and I know it also means a lot to my parents.
Like I said earlier, this morning I woke up to snow. I also woke up to a phone call from my second dad who's back in Montreal and is staying with my folks. Needless to say that I got a little misty...and hungry!
Anyhow, I guess it was just time that I opened up about what's going on here. Today, I'm on the hunt for a new camera charger so who knows, there might be pics sooner than later!
Enjoy the first snow!
