Troo c'est trop

That title is a riff on the expression trop c'est trop, literally "too much is too much" or "enough is enough." I don't know if it's an expression that's used much, but I did find it online, so it must exist, right? Troo is a town up on the Loir (no "e") River. It sits on a hillside above the river and at the very top of the hill is a little church. From the church yard there are nice views of the valley below.

I did something this morning that I almost never do: slept late. I woke up just before 08h00. Normally I get up between six and seven. I don't know why this happened. I went to bed at the normal time, and nothing unusual is going on. I've been sleeping very well lately, too. So now I'm scrambling to get this post done, after feeding the cat (he must have wondered what happened), and now I need to get Callie out for her walk. Have a nice day!


  1. I always admire stained glasses

  2. I slept the same way! We must have needed some extra zzz's ;-) We'll be losing an hour next month.

  3. HAHA! I love your "jeu de mot".

    "Trop c'est trop" est souvent utilisé par chez-nous!

  4. Sometimes, when my husband is not in the bed with me, I end up sleeping more soundly :) I think it's the lack of tossing, turning, and getting up by another person :)

  5. Sometimes we all need a good sleep, you must have been ready for it.

  6. The body's need for sleep continually varies, like that of the stock market. Go with the flow and let it be.

  7. gosia, :)

    evelyn, we're not losing it, we're just putting it away for later. ;)

    jon, lol!

    judy, could be part of it.

    jean, must have been!

    michael, that's what I do.

  8. As I always say, you can never have too many puns.

Pour your heart out! I'm listening.
