A Week In The Life

Wow. Saturday already. Another week gone.
What have I been up to?

I met a cool and very brave woman and saw the house she purchased in a neighboring village. Needs a lot of work but is a great place!

I firmed up plans to meet another blogger in Albi and hopefully visit a cheese shop there.

I ate my way through about a kilo of asparagus.

We enjoyed an evening out at our local café/bar where I had a great chat with the local honey maker.

I checked the garden to find that yes, the arugula and lettuce seeds have indeed sprouted!

I decided that it was time to master the art of soufflé. Maybe this one with Roquefort?

Taking care of our neighbor's dog, so getting two long walks every day up the hill in the garrigue.

I found and purchased an affordable ice cream maker. (I've been wanting to replace the one we left behind in the States since we moved here 5 years ago...it's about time!)

Errands, always errands; groceries, dog to the vet, pharmacy, bank, etc. Pin It

Today as I was driving through, I was a bit sad about leaving so soon. The good news is that I'll be back in a month (or so)!

i really should try souffles as well. my daughter's doctor keeps telling me to make them for her. and flans, both of which i can not imagine a north american doctor every suggesting for a toddler. c'est la vie en france!

It was a really good week! Tomorrow should be the start of another good one.

We're bummed that you have to leave already too. Hurry back!

I remember reading that on your blog and thought it was so funny. Un petit soufflé pour la bébé. :)
If you try making them you'll have to let me know how it goes.

If you ever make time in that busy schedule, you should come and visit the vineyard. We don't want everybody thinking there's a secret enclave of Americans around here, but it would be a shame not to at least meet some of the other local/etrangers.

Loulou said...

I would love to visit sometime! Thanks for the invitation.

Sounds like a brilliant week, meeting eating and chatting :-)

Nice post, great links and I absolutely love your new banner. Don't change it too soon?

Hmmm...how firm are these Albi plans? I think we need to do some serious date-setting, we seem to be complicating things in true blogger fashion.

Let's email.

Yes, a very good week!

I'm glad you like the new header. I'll leave it for a while.
Sent you an email about meeting up. We'll make some concrete plans.
