Settling In

Domino, a photo by chez loulou on Flickr.
Loving our new place, just wishing Orange would hurry up and connect us to the Internet!

Until then, we've found ourselves a fantastic little café with free wi-fi in Bayeux to keep us sane.

A bientôt! Pin It

Glad you are settled and the internet is on its way. When I first moved here just for summers, I had a dial up connection for the first 3 years. It was very easy to go insane!! Diane

Domino looks quite interested by the outside. Is he taking well to the move?

Sam Mooney said...

Lovely picture - as always.

More doors and windows! I think I only come to this blog for the doors and windows...

I love your place!! Hope to see more photos (cat included) :)

Sharon T said...

Love the colors in that photo and your adorable cat makes a great contrast! Glad to hear you are settling in. I wish you speedy internet :)

Mary said...

Domino sure is a beautiful kitty! Glad you'll be back 'on' soon. :) And i love doors and windows too. Great photo.

I love this picture, the color and the cat of course. I hope he/she likes the new home ;-)

Emm said...

Wonderful window and shutter colors, so bright and cheerful.

Maureen said...

You take the best photos ever! I love the cat.

Half Baked said...

I love the colors of the windows! You cat seems quite happy with his new digs:)

Sandy said...

I can never resist a window with a kitty in it. Lovely shot. Hope the move isn't too stressful. =)

I just love your new home! I am so envious! Happy to hear you're getting settled in. We just bought a wonderful cabin "off the grid" in Montana. We'll be spending six months out of the year there (very civilized - we have a flush toilet - lol!) and six months in Port Townsend, except for those times when we'll be going "home" to France. Looks like we'll be renting in France instead of buying... that will allow us to see every corner of my favorite place! Maybe one day we'll sell our main residence and do six months in France - six in Montana! Love watching you explore your new territory and share with all of us! Happy trails from Washington State!

Been away from your life for a while (new job, no time) but a quick peek does not disappoint.

So the south was too remote, too quiet? More action up north? You might be interested: You are much closer to some of my ancestral grounds, northwest of Paris, two families who intermarried. I have cousins still in France as far as I know.

Love the empty chairs. They tell a more universal story.

Love the window... The weather can't be any worse than ours.... Hope you get sunshine on occasion

Loulou in France said...

After several headaches, we're finally connected! Yahoo!

He's loving running around the new place and is still scared to venture outside. Though he does enjoy watching all the birds through the window.

Merci. :)

Loulou in France said...

Not a bad reason to visit, if you ask me! :)

Thanks! Hope you'll be able to come and see it for yourself one day.

Thanks for the speedy Internet wishes. They were much appreciated!

Loulou in France said...

We think he's quite handsome. :)

French Twist
Thanks! I love the way the photo came out. And Domino had a good time posing for the camera as well.

I think so too! They are quite unusual here, where many shutters are white or pale blue.

Loulou in France said...

Thank you!

Half Baked
He's very happy and spends a good part of the day (when not sleeping, of course) in the windows.

It is going really well, thanks...only a couple of hiccups so far.

Loulou in France said...

Montana, Port Townsend and France - that sounds like a perfect balance! Can't wait to hear more!

The south wasn't too quiet, it was blissfully tranquil. And beautiful.
However my work opportunities were definitely too quiet, so we decided to try a new place and couldn't be happier.

It would be interesting for you to come to France and meet your cousins, non?

We've had amazing weather so far. Only a couple of days of serious rain, but mostly sunny or just cloudy.

Starting to wonder if customer service is better in general in Normandy. So far it's been smooth sailing. (hope I haven't spoken too soon!)

Loulou in France said...

We're finding that, in general, it is. And we're loving it!
