Foodie Friday – Pumpkin Blossoms

My pumpkin patch is coming along quite nicely this year. I think I will actually be able to grow a few good ones (assuming, of course that it doesn’t snow in September again!). I have so many blossoms that I needed to start taking them off of the plant so that the energy can be... Continue Reading →

Foodie Friday – Happy Fruit

Sometimes I get food bored. I like to bake, but I am not as an adventurous cook as Shawn is. So, when I get really bored I make simple things. I looked in my fridge the other day and saw that we had a great variety of fruit. So I made an individual fruit salad... Continue Reading →

Foodie Friday – Rhubarb Wine

We grow a lot of rhubarb in our back yard. It is such an easy thing to grow and we were especially lucky that the previous owners of our house had already grown a sizable rhubarb patch. However, I have not been able to use all of the rhubarb that we grow to make crisps... Continue Reading →

It was our last morning in Angé.  It was the most beautiful day of the week!  Go figure.  It took us a while to pack.  We bought a lot of stuff.  And we still have quite a bit of food.  Trying to pack all that stuff in our little backpacks is always a challenge at... Continue Reading →

This morning we were up and mobilized at a much more reasonable hour.  Not compared to when I am actually working and being productive at home – but better compared to the last week here!! We hopped on our bikes and rode down into Montrichard so that we could take the train into Tours.  There... Continue Reading →

We ended up not going into Tours today.  We kind of had another chill day around the local area.  When we finally made it out of our little house, we walked down to the bakery.  I totally complemented the owner on the quality of her “religeuses” as they are definitely the best I have ever...

We did not sleep in quite as much today as we did yesterday – I think we may be almost caught up on sleep from the traveling and everything.  It was a lighter looking sky today, so we decided to take the sketchy looking bikes and cycle the 20ish kilometers to Chateau Chenonceau.  The bikes...

This morning we woke up at 10am. I don’t remember the last time (if ever) I have slept until 10am.  That’s crazy!  I guess we were tired from all the traveling and things over the last couple of days. It wasn’t great weather out this morning, but it wasn’t raining.  So, we decided to take... Continue Reading →

Today was one of those days that was never-ending.  It seemed like we had about 3 days in one today!!  We got up before 6am and walked to the bus/train station to get Kendra to the airport.  It is super easy from Sophie and Dani’s house because they already live outside of Paris.  It was...

Mom was really sick over night – which was really too bad.  At least they are headed off to Nice today and are staying in one location until they come home next week.  That is much better than traveling around or needing to get on a plane sick. Shawn made it over to our boat... Continue Reading →
