Like the poltergeist in the eponymous movie “Poltergeist”, I’m baaaaack. 🙂 Actually got back the end of last week but have been dealing with helping-aging-parents things so today’s the first day back on the blog. But first news first: God willing, we’ll be grandparents to a baby boy end of March-ish next year. 🙂 First one for both sides of the family so exciting times. ❤

On the blogging side of things, Jude’s moved to one of fall’s bright colors/colours: “orange”, so here’s my first offering: an apricot tartlet from the newly-opened “Sweet Wheat” in Redondo Beach, California, an artisan boulangerie run by French brothers and it is, as my sister-in-law in France said when I sent her some photos, “a proper bakery.” Don’t hate me if you look at the photos and read descriptions of what they have to offer. The first day I had a wonderful pain au chocolat (“proper name”, no “chocolate croissant” here); the morning I left, this not-too-sweet tartlet. Délicieux!

I also noticed Becky is allowing us crazy retro freedom this month with “Past Squares” as the theme. Several she shared are “bright” and “circles and squares.” This hits “bright” and “circles” so, Becky, you get a tartlet as well!

Okay, it’s unlikely that Fougerolles will ever be luring tourists by advertising its selection of doors,  but it’s not just all cherries and distilleries.  Here’s a small selection for your Thursday delectation.  Be sure not to miss the last one!

Here in the U.S., we’re celebrating Thanksgiving.  I have so much for which to be thankful and you, my blogging friends, are certainly a part of that.  Thanks for making my days brighter and more interesting.
