We are making an extraordinary recovery from our Thursday evening and Friday trip to Monnaie, France. Just a short post to let you know how we are accomplishing this recovery.

After a lovely walk at dusk by wheat fields and old farmhouses behind the house where we’re staying in Monnaie, this morning we drove into town for our first groceries and a trip to the boulangerie (bakery) where we got a fresh baguette to go.

Then, after an excited five-minute drive to our new temporary home by the wheat field, I had to have one more picture of Ellen with the baguette before we took it inside to devour, with ham and cheese.

Here's poor Ellen, starving on our doorstep, while I take one more picture of that perfect bagette! (At this writing it is almost all gone.)

We are indeed lucky ducks to indulge in such pleasures. More from us over the days ahead–if we have time.  🙂

A bientot!
