Chores and more

Today was chore day. New linens on the beds and in the bathrooms and laundry were the essentials. Grocery shopping at the supermarket. And lots of time to do needlework on the terrace, have lunch outside on the terrace. Dave took a hike out of a guidebook that started right near our house. He was gone for a couple of hours and discovered some paths and views he hadn't seen before. When he got home, he "cooked" us a 5-course meal. Aperos (olives, of course), salad, pasta (leftovers reheated in the microwave), cheese course, and dessert (raspberry tarts purchased at the supermarket this morning) with espresso. He outdid himself! His bread-slicing skills were called into action for 3 of the courses - salad, entree, and cheese and he didn't disappoint!

I'm afraid there's not much more to comment on today. The skies were blue, the sun warm with a gentle breeze to keep us from getting too hot. As Dave says, "Another shitty day in paradise." Followed by "Now this is livin'"


  1. Good for David! he's come a long way since retirement! When are you two due back?
    Enjoy the weather - we're still in early spring mode!

  2. Dave is becoming quite the chef! I'm expecting him to start sporting the toque (chef's hat) and jacket any day now!

  3. We're back mid-June. As of today, we're mid-way through our stay in Languedoc. A week at the end to go to Berlin to visit our foreign exchange daughter, Sandra.
