We had a very good Lunch at Philippe Bouvard’s en Terrasse avec nos chiens ! On the terrace, where the young woman insisted we bring our two dogs , pup included ! Who were very well behaved for such a very hot day, with their own corner and water bowl ! We ate well, half of us had plat du jour fro 13€ufos and the other two a Steak with frites for 30€ all inclusive 4 courses, including fab Apple tarte and goat’s cheese / or platter and I had 2 flavors/ parfum des Glaces artisanale with a confectionery feat of pink candy floss – spun sugar ! Trés délicieux !
Our Puppy’s first walk ! She was very good walking all around the Village where we’d just spent a happy Lunch with Maman & friends – Rose & Stephen – Rose and I used to pram push our dollies together & our Mums pram pushed our big brothers before we were born ….
Our Music Atélier has this lovely old window which boasts fabulous colours for my African pallette which i shall be painting on SIlks Linens and wools for Spinning this Summer and for next Autumn ! I shall mute some yellows and rusts, brick and charcoal.
Next Winter i hope to re-learn from an old friend how to warp my loom and take up weave as well as Dye for my practical arts practise.
I can’t wait to get home to my STudio which will need a grand overhawl before i can feel i’ve really taken possession there! Too many clothes from mine and my children’s past must be sorted into Recyclable, re-wearable and give to another charitable institute .
The Summer will be upon us shortly then June will mean i can work outside with my paintings and Silks which will dry there more quickly.
I’m looking forward to Mum’s visit and showing old friends our new French home. Our old farmhouse still needs a lot doing but we are getting nearer feeling at home and more comfortable there.
I sometimes feel like this – especially on waking
My feet fall into oblivion
Sinking – then balancing
Walking the tightrope of fear
in a cold sweat
I wake from a Dream
And then i drop into the water crystal
And everything is white and swirling
Drop in the Ocean blue
