This summer is not going to be spent in my house the whole time. This summer my family and I are going to my grandma’s house in North Carolina. We usually go on the weekend and can only stay for one and a half days before school starts on Monday. But, since its summer, we might be able to stay for a week! She lives next to the woods so we could go hunting or fishing if we wanted to. If we get lucky we could come home with a fish and she could cook something delicious with just that fish. Since summer last for two and one half months, summer runs through July. On July 4 th there are fire-works and explosions of light. Usually my family launches some rockets that are really loud and watches the fireworks.
Dear Pamela,As a Brit, it’s nice to see someone from ‘over the pond’ who’s got most of the information about Afternoon Tea correct for a change: I now live in Vinci, Italy (yes where Leonardo was born), and now offer afternoon tea to Italians in our home dining would take you to task on one item in your article,(there’s always a critic!) and that is about Cream Tea in which you say: “Cream Tea — A simple tea service consisting of scones, clotted cream, marmalade or lemon curd and tea.” Cream Tea traditionally consists of scones served with clotted cream and strawberry said that if people prefer to have their scones (and it’s pronounced ‘skons’ as far as I’m concerned),with an alternative, I have no problem with that, it’s a free world (supposedly)!For example I sometimes fill my Victoria Sponge with lemon curd instead of the traditional raspberry jam and fresh raspberries both of which balance well with a nice cup of sweet Luck with the book!
