Last night we were invited over for supper by Jacques, the contractor who did our attic conversion, and his wife Elisabeth. We were out late and I'm feeling the aftereffects this morning. Problem is, we have a lot of work to do today.
Jacques and Elisabeth live on the opposite side of Saint-Aignan from us. As you'll see from the photos here, they have a stupendous view of the town's major monuments from their front patio.
It was nice enough for us to be comfortable sitting outside until after midnight. We watched the sunset over the town and enjoyed a good supper. This was after having settled our bill for the attic job. Writing that check was painful but unavoidable...
Earlier in the day, I took this picture of Callie sleeping just inside the back door. The dog is doing what I'd like to be able to do today.
Temperatures are in the low 80s F in the afternoon, and that's good for the garden. We are just watching everything grow, and also getting the house ready for company next week. A week from now, we'll start painting the walls upstairs.
