Home Again

We arrived back home late this afternoon. We'd been gone for two weeks and there is nothing like walking back into your own home, opening your own refrigerator, eating exactly what you want (poulet roti).... and boy am I looking forward to sleeping in my own bed with my husband!

I will write about the trip in the next few days, but I'll start with the beginning of my trip.... to visit my sister in her home near Montpellier. As I mentioned, we spent our days laying at her pool (she knit, of course). Here is a picture of the back of her home, taken from the pool....

I thought it was wonderful that my sister can put out a "bread bag" on her door knob before 9am and the local bakery will put the bread or baguette of the day in the bag. This day we got some version of a sesame baguette. We nearly ate the whole thing for breakfast... it was just that good and fresh. You just don't get that kind of service in Paris!

Her home looks beautiful - I love the pink (or magenta?) windows. I really wish there was fresh bread delivery service here though!

How does she pay for the bread? I would love a service like that. Sometimes, it's just too hard to get two young children dressed first thing in the morning just to go the bakery.

Now that! is service! I can see how it is wonderful to stay at your sister's place! Nice to have you "back" home. Terry in SF

what a beautiful home ... I love the magenta against the white. And, I wish we had bread bags and a daily bread delivery around here ... what a great idea! Welcome home. (I know just what you mean about sleepin gin your own bed and eating foods of choice!).

That bread bag is so cool! I've never quite seen anything like that before!

It turns out Auntie that I will also be going to Washington, but next year. So I'm glad in a way you'll be there blazing the path before I get there (and I'll know where to go and everything!) Auntie M's a pioneer!

Enjoy your last days in France. I know you will!
