Mr. Meteo told me last night that it was going to rain today, so I made no plans to go anywhere.
Well, stupid Mr. Meteo was wrong. I woke this morning (or mid-morning by everyone else’s standards) to a sunny, blue sky. It was a bit breezy, but not too bad. Definitely nothing in the way of the Mistrals or anything, so that brightened my day some.
I’m not complaining about sunny skies, no way Jose. It just that I would have made whole day away plans if I would have known. I treasure my weekend get-a-ways, you know.
So, I again checked Mr. Meteo this morning to see what was up. He was still saying that rain would be coming my way sometime this afternoon which meant that if I wanted to do anything in the outdoorsy way, I had better get on it (if he was telling me the truth).
Since we have such a nice area to stroll in, Dude and I decided to take an hour or so walk before lunch.
To our surprise it was quite pleasant outside and turned out to be perfect weather for a late morning walk.
The little poppies are blooming.
The vineyards are starting to show leaves and thanks to all the rain we have been having, the mountains and fields are a nice shade of green.
Once back home, it was time for a quick lunch.
Yes folks, that’s my idea of a quick lunch, Cantal cheese (I will forever love my friend Jacqui over at The French Village Diaries for introducing me to this wonderful cheese), fresh strawberries, a bottle of Cairanne wine(made known to be my my friend Michel our at Sablet House Provence and that Dude already partook of) and some delicious 1848 dark chocolate while enjoying the view.
I do kind of think I’m spoiled, but somehow I just can’t apologize for it 🙂
