A nice couple of days

Wednesday was beautiful, and today is supposed to be even nicer with a high temperature of 24ºC (about 75ºF). We'll take it. But then Friday and the weekend are predicted to bring rain and une baisse vertigineuse des temperatures (a vertiginous drop in temperature), i.e., it's gonna get cold again.

Our laurel hedge is flowering now.

We are taking advantage of the nice weather to work outdoors. I got some seeds planted in the garden; they're for early crops like radishes and lettuces and peas, so the cooler temperatures shouldn't hurt them. And we burned our yard waste. We had three piles under tarps all winter and now they're gone. It sure feels good to get something accomplished!


  1. Good luck with the blood tests. I do understand that high triglycerides are often ignored-- though they are, apparently, a much better indicator of plaque buildup and reason for concern, than are overall cholesterol levels.

    Great photo!

  2. I hope your studying pays off! We need to keep our tickers in good shape- they have work to do all the time.

  3. Beautiful photo. I never knew laurel had such lovely flowers, hedges are often just taken for granted.

    Do you feel any different from leaving out the wine for two weeks? I keep threatening to do the same but somehow it never happens !!

  4. What a photo! Can you easily obtain fish oil
    gelcaps in France? They're a great source of
    Omega 3. Jim's and my trygliceride levels
    dropped way down once we started taking
    them, mine by almost 50%.

  5. I have never seen flowers like that; tres belle!

  6. Is it just me or did the first two people comment on the wrong post?


Pour your heart out! I'm listening.
