Just realized this AM that I forgot a special day yesterday!  Happy Anniversary to Granny and Grandpa "O". Hope you celebrated and you have a great year.

We have just been kickin around here.  I've been taking long walks while the girls do thier reading for school.  We picked up a smaller car to keep for several weeks, hard to believe they have smaller cars!  It's a Renault, Twingo, it's been great,so far, easy to park!  we put a picture on later.

We plan to go to Quimper on Saturday again, so we'll take more pics and have some new stuff to look at then.

It's been interesting learn how things work here.  Day to day it's a very simple life here and it appears the french don't like to spoil themselves too much.
Everyday is a grocery shopping day, as you must get fresh bread! The boulangerie is open 9-12 and then 2-5 or another one will have different hours  9-12:30 and 3-7!  You never know.  It's the same with restaurants no one has the same hours.  In fact it has happened more than once already that we go and there is a sign on the door they are on vacation!

I noticed on the post office yesterday that they wrote in on Wed closed, no reason given.
It's frustrating,but funny and in a way it sort of sums up the attitude of the french, c' est la vie!!!

Take Care

Thanks for the good wishes. Yes we went out for supper and then went grocery shopping. Pretty exciting hey!!! Oh well, we didn't get away this winter and now Grandpa is cleaning seed. So I'm looking for our summer trip to Alaska & Yukon. Wish me luck!!! Sounds pretty laid back over there so maybe you can enjoy the slower pace and rest up. That would be good for you Val.

Love you Girls take care GrannyO
