How about this idea: just photos for you today! I'm sure you can guess their backstory, just knowing that Snowdrop slept over at the farmhouse and that she came back later in the day with the young family for our traditional Sunday dinner.

Two details you may not pick up on your own: I really tried to up the cooking a bit. Call it the Parma influence. For dinner, I used bigger shrimp and added mussels to my pasta dish (Snowdrop loves both -- mussels and shrimp). Second point -- it's true love for my family that pushed me toward the raspberry patch (damn mosquitoes!) so that I could offer the berries along with ice cream for dessert. Snowdrop rewarded my efforts by devouring not only her berries, but those of her neighbors as well.

The rest? Just make your best guess from the photos.
