Noilly Prat & Le Glacier

August 3, 2011

[Reminder: My blogs are a week behind schedule.  My parents left on Monday morning for Nice. They emailed to say they are having a blast.] My parents are in town now. We are so happy to see them. Unfortunately, it rained all day. This is actually the first time it’s rained / thunderstorm during the […]

The Big Crack

August 2, 2011

To forgive or not to forgive…that is the question.  Things have been going really smoothly for us in France, probably too smooth.  I knew something bad was bound to happen and sure enough it did. The other day while Chris was helping me clean the bathroom, he leaned his one hand on the counter to […]

Chez Philippe

August 1, 2011

Every Saturday marks another week that has passed of our France vacation.  We officially have 3 weeks remaining.  Ugh!  Time really does go very fast! We’ve basically tried almost all the restaurants in Marseillan.  We have only a FEW remaining.  Tonight we decided to give the Chez Philippe restaurant a try.  I am glad that […]

I have been including pictures in some of my blog posts that are done by a local artist in Marseillan.  His name is J.C Chabrol and his studio is just steps away from our house. This morning he came over to introduce himself.  He invited us in to his studio and gave us a tour […]

Fete des Vacances

July 30, 2011

Chez Nous

July 28, 2011

I’m doing the happy dance as I type this.  We have visitors coming to see us.  My parents are coming to Marseillan very soon. They are heading on a whirlwind trip of their own.  I’m so proud of them for doing this – and a little sad it took them so long to be able […]

Officially Insane

July 27, 2011

Insane, insane in the membrane… Two legit, 2 legit to quit…. Hammer Time…. Okay – enough with the bad music, but the lyrics just keep coming.  And sometimes, I just feel like breaking out into song – is that so wrong!  Now onto the post. It was not that long ago that I was tossing […]

Pizza in the Park

July 26, 2011

Tonight we ordered pizza from the local fast food joint called Sancho. We walked down to the park with the pizza, some wine and dined.  I don’t enjoy drinking wine out of plastic water bottles (snob – yes – I like a nice wine glass) but Angel # 1 really wanted to eat in the […]
