1. I watch my friend's husband making pasta - I chose fettuccini - it goes through the machine over and over, getting thinner each time.
2. Not having to cook tonight! The four kids have their dinner at a little table out in the courtyard while the grown-ups sit inside with wine and home-made pasta.
3. My husband is away for the night and I feel a bit lonely, but "Fiddler on the Roof" comes on TV to keep me company.
