I live in a lovely old renovated department store that has been converted into shops below and apartments above. Mine has two large windows overlooking Main Street.
I have discovered that one of the most charming thing about our home is the Food Fairies. We have two women in the building who have consistantly shown their gifts of hospitality by bringing us dinners and desserts. They just ring the doorbell and run...but I caught one once.
Both these ladies are "of a certain age" and it seems that their generation has much to teach mine about generosity and kindness. It has prompted me to join the Food Fairies as well and deliver a couple of anonymous loaves of my own. And as a newcomer in town, it makes me feel more at home.
