We just finished our dinner of lemon & leek carbonara. It was - as it always is - delicious! We had hoped to listen to live streaming of the election, but we couldn't find any news or media sites that are streaming, at least not yet. It's strange being so far away and so removed from the minute to minute news coverage. I guess it will be a surprise. We'll wake up to a winner and read about which way the swing states swung over breakfast, which will be leftover pasta. I always make too much pasta, always. It's a personal flaw of sorts.
The highlight of our day was a little haus tea party. A few of my friends came over with their babies so I could introduce my mom to our Zürich family, or at least the female contingent of it. There was flourless chocolate cake some Ladurée macaroons and of course a few chocolates, oh yes, and tea, lots of tea. It was so nice having friends and family in one place.
Signing off to hunker with my mom on the couch.
