Not much going on

We've been shut-ins for a while. Until yesterday, that is, when we got in the car and drove up to Blois to go shopping. The big E. Leclerc hypermarket had some holiday promotions and I saw a thing or two in their catalog that I wanted to get. And we also wanted to stop by the Asian grocer which is just down the road. Blois is a forty-five minute drive from St.-Aignan.

A view of central St.-Aignan, before the recent snowfall.

The shopping went fine; it was not a zoo. We didn't find everything we wanted, but we picked up a few more grocery items than planned so the trip was worthwhile. And the drive was pleasant in that the sky cleared along the way. The sun made everything look nice and gave us a good dose of whatever it is the sun gives you.

Of course, neither of us thought to take our cameras, so we have no photos to share.


  1. The simplicity of your Posts make me want to move there. Perhaps you should work for the Tourism Department.
    Will you live in France forever?
    Your Friend, m.

  2. I was hoping for pictures of the E. Leclerc hypermarket.

  3. It must have felt like a great escape after being confined to your 'hood for such a long time.

    Well, that's a funny thought.... escape from heaven in the Loire Valley to SuperU.

    Verification word: imesse. I'm a mess? I miss you?

  4. did you ever go over that darned gait door??

  5. mark, I don't know about forever, but for the foreseeable future.

    starman, I actually thought about that, but only after I left the camera at home.

    cheryl, hehehe. The joys of shopping.

    michael, nope.


Pour your heart out! I'm listening.
