After we were done moving, Amelie asked me to have a shower because we would be having dinner together.
I showered and got dressed into a suit. Then I met the girls downstairs in the dining room.
Amelie told me it wasn’t supposed to be a big meal. We started off with Hungarian meat soup which was sausage, bacon, and beef in a savory broth. Very nice.
After that, we had Chicken Paprikash with whipped potatoes and green beans.
For dessert, we had apple pie a la mode.
The whole dinner was delicious. There’s something Samantha does to food that makes it absolutely delicious.
So after dinner, we relaxed in the parlour and had tea and brandy. Very good stuff. We talked about the move and how successful it was. Then we talked about our plans for setting everything up today.
Today, we have to hang paintings, put books away, put trophies on shelves, hang diplomas, and place furniture. It’s going to be a busy day, but there won’t be half the muscle work that we did yesterday.
Last night, before I went to bed, I asked Amelie where the remote was for the fireplace in the guest room. She found it for me and I slept with the fire blazing. About 3:30am, I got too hot and I had to turn it off.
Today’s a much milder day (-3C, 26.6F). Before long, I won’t be able to sit in front of a fire because it’ll be too warm.
This morning, Samantha made me my usual, two sunny side up eggs and 3 pieces of buttered toast. I don’t know why, but it tastes better when she makes it.
