Catching Up!

Hello Dear Friends,
and a very special Hello to my friends across the Atlantic. 
May God bless and guide your great nation.

I have been off blogging for a few days. 
Funny how one cannot make a very simple straight forward post-a-day. 
I hope to stick to the plan a little bit more in the next few days. 

Here's our news.

J is on his first Cub Scout camp!
He left on Sunday and will be back this coming Sunday. 
Having been a Cub Scout Leader myself, I am a little more relaxed about it, so far, but I think C is rather miserable. He looks forward to speaking to him today during rest time. 
Can't blame him. after all, J is our baby!

We have some nice warm days here. 
We collected the first cucumber from our garden, and C made us a tzatziki on Sunday. 
Quite striaghtforward really. 
You need Greek yoghurt, garlic vloves and cucumber in thin slices  and olive oil, mix together and ta-da! your Greek dip, perhaps with some pita bread,  is ready! 
The whole trick is in the details, the balance of garlic, according to your or your guests' tastes. It takes practice, but it's worth it. 

We have C's parents here for a week or more. 
And then next Sunday F goes to Boy Scout Camp on the same site. 
I have the fondest memories of my Summer camps. Hope the kids will have a great time, too! 

Remember my book review about Maria Menounos' new book The EveryGirl's Guide to Life ?
Here is an interview of Maria with Jenny Balatsinou, one of Greece's top models turned into a beauty entrepreneur, and wife to Greece's hotest magazine editor or so some think ;)

I wish you all a lovely festive day.
See you soon,

love, Irene
