Welcome Eleonora

September 16, 2006, at Miriam's, to welcome her new housemate Eleonora

  1. Eleonora preparing dough

  2. Miriam made a beautiful cheesecake that I dropped when I was taking it out an hour later. We salvaged it and it tasted great but ... let's just say I am still mortified.

  3. Shucking corn

  4. Heads bent. The three of us worked in the kitchen from 1:30 until (and after) people started arriving at 5. Work for the party started a month earlier, when Eleonora and Miriam shopped for plants for the outdoor patio garden. Then food shopping started on Friday ... extended through Saturday morning ... some emergency quick stops at the store on Saturday afternoon ...
