Goodbye to a home

I live in a good house! It's a good place to be. But I do live alone, which I am used to, but which has disadvantages anyway. And the best way of throwing such disadvantages out of the window is by dropping by at Roland and Maria. I already spoke of what a welcoming place that is. And Roland I see almost every day, but Maria only when I visit her at home. And from my wish to see her, and the practical considerations regarding Rosa (who now has teeth!), has grown a sort of a tradition. Once in a while I take over the kitchen at the Gehrels household, and then we eat together. Cooking is much nicer if you do it for others. And despite Maria's undeniable culinary talents I am always welcome to replace her for a day. By this tradition we all win!

The tradition will change, though. Soon they'll receive the keys of their new, temporary house. I don't think there'll be another kitchen conquest before they move. But let's hope it will continue in the new residence.
