Today was a great day!! It rained!! I didn't have to water my garden, today!
Instead, I can create a new post for my loyal followers.
We, in the Pacific Northwest, had quite an unusual spring and summer this year. We had hot weather in April and May and then, June and July were below average temperatures with rain. August went back to hot weather until the last few days, which have been cooler. Well, I won't have to worry about the garden after September 12 because my husband and I are away for a month to...................... FRANCE!!!!!
We are so excited to be going to France again after 27 years. Way too long to wait to see this incredible country.
The start of the trip is to Normandy to see the D-Day beaches and explore the many beautiful cities and towns in the region. Next, we go to see Versailles again, both the chateau and the city. Following this up, with a trip to Fontainebleau. The last two weeks will be in Paris...............how wonderful to enjoy the sights again and all the wonderful patisseries and bakery shops!!!!

I know that many would like to know how my fur-babies are getting along........................well, Sophie grudgingly agrees to being chased by Oliver every day but Mimi will have none of it. She refuses to be where he is but is intriqued by him. Oliver on the other hand has the best time chasing them and all the squirrels and birds that arrive!! I, sort of had the idea that they would all get along and play together. Boy was I wrong!
However, the three of them agreed to get into the spirit of our trip to France and showed their support:
Well, as usual, I have rambled on too long, so will say bon soir and go and enjoy a cup of herbal tea.
