French apartment renovations, Day 174: Dinner with Comrade

11,467 steps

Eric and Inga left around 11 am for a soccer tournament north of Nice. The rest of us walked home from Cimiez, stopping at a park with mulberry trees. I wish we'd had a blanket to spread on the ground--you can shake the branches and they fall off by the dozens. We did it the slow way, picking one by one.

Eric had invited Comrade over for dinner at 6:30 pm. But since Eric was gone at a soccer tournament, I had the *cough cough* pleasure of cleaning the house and cooking the dinner. I got all 3 kids to help with some of the cleaning: Dio cleaned the toilet room, Zari folded clothes, and Ivy cleaned the bathroom sink.

I made buttermilk biscuits, salmon fennel soup, and chocolate tart. Eric got home with Inga around 4 pm--earlier than originally planned, since they lost several games--so he helped with the final cleanup and made a tomato, basil, & mozzarella salad.

We had a nice dinner with Comrade and then showed him our progress on the Communist apartment. He's going to lend us his big air compressor this week so we can start sandblasting.

That was our day! Not exactly restful. We got the kids to bed on time, or very close to on time (8:30 pm for Ivy and Inga, 9:30 pm for Zari and Dio).
