From the States Vignette 3

The Mystery Box

The Mystery Box

This was often the center object on the breakfast buffets, flanked to the right by a large crock of oatmeal, bagels, breads, pastries, butters, jellies and so on, and flanked to the left by waffle batter and the irons for cooking them, syrup, et cetera.

With mild anticipation, but anticipation nevertheless, each day I wondered what I would find when I lifted the cover.

One day I had already put sausage gravy on a piece of bread before I realized it contained the biscuits which were meant for that purpose.

Others days I found:

  • scrambled eggs and bacon
  • sausage and potato hash
  • sausage and wraps (egg, sausage?)
  • scrambled eggs, bacon and sausage

I never did find raw milk or anything organic.  Ha, ha.

About djdfr

Daily life experiences by a Franco-American woman living in the Breton countryside form the basics of this blog. Gardening, watercolour, choral music, food, are some of my interests. I seek to balance the physical, mental and spiritual. I am a free believer praying from the Bible, the Qur’an and The Revelation of Arès. In 1974, with Jesus as the messenger, and in 1977, manifesting as a stick of light, Our Creator spoke directly to a man in Arès, France, named Michel Potay. The message is in the book “The Revelation of Arès”. It is a call for us to change, to practice love, peacemaking, forgiveness, to free ourselves from all prejudice, to develop our spiritual intelligence, the intelligence of the heart.

    I never look at them knowing that there is nothing for me to eat there. 🙂
