It's been a while

So it's April now. It's been a while since I blogged. All is good, I'm so happy to report.
My trip to France was wonderful. My husband I had a great time. With a few adventures a long the way.

So we got into Paris and it was snowing! So thankfully we had our winter coats on as we got off the plane and then made our way to the TGV. On the TGV we headed down to Avigon. It was a beautiful ride and though we slept most of the way, watching the snow fall on little villages was beautiful as we made our ride south. We got in and the minstrals were blowing! It was pretty chilly.

We rented our little car and headed down to Gordes. Finally we arrived to my belle-mere's house. We were tired, wanting to shower off the airplane smell from us, and a bit hungry. There we were standing at the door so happy to have finally arrived. And we put the key in the door and ....uhhh nothing. No turning. The whole key wouldn't even go in the key hole. Yep..we were locked out! With his mom living most of the year in California. Getting the correct key from her was not a possibility.

Thank goodness my cell phone works in Europe and we called some of his moms local friends. We drove over to the her friends, chatted, and then they found out the did not have the correct key either. So they called a local locksmith for us and we headed back to his mom's house. The locksmith worked his magic and yahoo! We were in there!! Throughout it all, my honey and I remained calm as I was saying.."we our locked out of a house in beautiful Provence, I'm not going to get frustrated."

We got in the house and it's so beautiful, magical, inviting. And a bit cold! Those solid old walls are not something we have here in America. And they sure kept the cold in. So we turned on all the heaters, turned on the water heater and took a cold shower that night. In the morning we woke up to church bells and chirping birds. The house was warm and I got up and took a nice hot shower. From there on we had had a wonderful time. Some of our Swiss friends came to visit us for a few days and we just drove around to little villages, ate lots of cheese, sausison (my fave) and drank great wine, and played batonc.

I really can get use to that lifestyle. We really slowed down and it was nice.

After about a week we headed back up to Paris for 2 nights. Paris was great and when we got there it was sunny, and warm. We didn't even have to wear coats while walking around the city. I did a little shopping and just walked everywhere. Paris is such a fun city and I could people watch for hours.

Back at home now, all is good at here. Spring is trying to break though the cold spells. Peoples gardens took a beating from the chilly nights. And I'm ready for a seasonal change again. I love the winter and fall. But I say bring it on spring!

I have many peoples blogs to catch up on so I'll be reading away. Ps. .. I recommend watching The Secret, to anyone that's interested. Oprah had it on her show. And I happen to see the tail end of her show as she was talking about it. Well I bought the dvd. I'm sure others can rent it. I can say it's great and I learn something every time I watch it. So check it out!

Best to all!!!
