We started with a delicious supper of homemade tomato soup (Anna and I picked the tomatoes yesterday) and bread... and cheese, naturally. We're in France, after all. We also managed to kill three bottles of wine between the eight of us. Now we've cleaned up and some of us (wiser ones) have headed off to bed while the others (ahem) chatter nonstop downstairs, catching up on old times no doubt. They'll be sorry in the morning, when I awaken everyone with Anna's cowbell.
I'm looking forward to getting to know this group of gals. They look like fun, even after an entire day of traveling. I wish them a sweet night's rest before our workshops begin tomorrow!
