French Country

My life in France is not what I expected.

Christmas already?

So here is my little Jacques, stressing  because he just had a bath — yes, this is about as clean as he gets — and is pretty sure a good brushing is sure to follow. He doesn’t know I’m going to let him off the hook. That anxious face gets me every time.

It’s almost Christmas. I have plans but I don’t have a Christmas ritual over here, so it is kind of taking me  by surprise. I hope you are all well and well prepared for the holidays. The contractors are off for a couple of weeks. They’ll return in January and so will I. See you then.

  2. I still can’t comment on the blog. During an upgrade I lost all my passwords and can’t seem to remember the one for French Country.

    Anyway, Jacque is adorable. That pic needs to be framed.

    In the words of Greg Lake, I wish you a hopeful Christmas and a brave New Year
    (Think we might both need to screw our courage to the sticking post in 2015!)

    Enough quotes……………………………Enjoy the oysters

    • You’re right. We must prepare for the new year which looks to become a lot like the old year except, you know, a whole additional year of it. So do I chill one bottle of champagne or two? What about tossing some caviar into the shopping basket? Smoked or cured salmon? Could be a rough twelve months. Can’t be too prepared.
