Guess who's coming to dinner and that BIG Beautiful Moon

Jackie and Janis showed up at my door claiming they were hungry, in need of food and drink (even through Janis was carrying two bottles of wine in her hands!)  It had been raining just a little now and then so I decided to set the table inside, however when they arrived the weather was perfect and we opted to sit out on the terrace. It was a 'slow food night', beginning with guacamole/chips and hicima, accompanied of course by a glass or two of the bubbly. Then we moved on the a small salad, after which the main course was trout, mashed potatoes with garlic and onion, and carrots in cream. We lingered for dinner, not rushing into the next course, and enjoyed each other's company immensely. Time has passed so quickly, and a month (which seemed like a lovely lot of time) has turned into a week. They leave next Saturday, early.

Habibi demanded to know where Bob was ....

Which Janice found very amusing and immediately fired off an email to Bob informing him he was missed!

We talked and toasted and ate our way through the evening until it was suddenly 10:00 pm and time to go home.

At the moment it's 3:00 AM.  I awoke to the beautiful big moon shining through my window, so stepped onto the terrace and caught this picture.

Truly gorgeous - hope some of you were able to catch a glimpse.  

A lovely evening was had by all, and now the moon is in a position to shine in my window when I go back to bed.  Thanks for dropping by - I do appreciate it so much.  And your comments are simply wonderful - thanks again,
