A fond farewell

So this will be the last of the photos that I took back at the end of June when we visited friends in Varennes-sur-Fouzon. Those friends will be leaving their vacation home soon for a few days in Paris before heading back to the USA.

The sign as you leave Varennes-sur-Fouzon.

They came to spend the afternoon at our place yesterday and we made pizzas for lunch. I got a little panicky when the oven locked up. I had the temperature up high and the pizza stone got very hot. Apparently the oven thought it was in a cleaning cycle and locked itself. We had to trip the circuit breaker to turn it off and let it cool so that it would unlock itself. It did, and we continued along without further incident.

In all, I think we made five pizzas during the course of the day. And while the weather was hot, it didn't rain until later in the evening and we got to be out on the deck the whole time. What fun!

  1. Ovens are too clever for their own good these days!
    I'm glad it was a case of "man's triumph over technology" and that you got your pizzas in the end!

  3. Glad we'll see at least one of the pizzas :) Did the guests help make the pizzas with you? (And, holy cow! Scary about the stove!)

  4. I'll keep the circuit breaker in mind, should a similar experience ever happen to me! Glad you were so smart to come up with a solution; it would be a shame to lose any of your pizzas! Looking forward to seeing them in tomorrow's posting!!!
