Blue Skies and New Babies
10:45 pm - was a good day. Talked with Sherry at home - she seemed surprised I would call. It is always good to hear (or read) a voice from home. Just corresponded with our niece, she has a great blog spot for her son, and expecting another child in June, whew! The day was gorgeous today; light breezes, warm, sunny, and leisurely. Took some photos of the well-maintained (and less maintained) buildings in and near one of the main squares of the village - post office, hotel, notary, etc. Also added a few shots of other sights around the school onto my album. Had dinner at the pub; steak/frite (steak and fries) - J ate the steak and we split the fries, then chocolate mousse for dessert, ahhhhh this is the life. Hope the day wherever you are is as blue and sunny as it was here. Farmer's market tomorrow morning, so I should get to sleep so I can rise with the roosters. M
When I started this blog in May 2007, it was for the sole purpose of staying in touch with friends and family while we traveled to Europe for three months. I am still staying in touch. "Traveller's Joy" clematis vitalba: Wildflower found throughout southwest Europe/Africa. Used for medicinal purposes and found "climbing and covering" the roadsides of Europe.
We spend January 1 walking through our lives, room by room, drawing up a list of work to be done, cracks to be patched. Maybe this year, to balance the list, we ought to walk through the rooms of our lives... not looking for flaws, but for potential. ~Ellen Goodman
