French renovations, Day 48: It's a dove!

9,245 steps

Zari took a closer look at our "pigeon" and realized it's a Eurasian collared dove! Somehow that makes me less annoyed at its presence. Pigeons over here are like squirrels in the US: they may seem cute, but they are everywhere, make a mess, and are generally pests.

We had a dramatic thunderstorm this morning. By the afternoon the rain had cleared up. Eric and I went on a walk together, just the two of us. It's been a while! Before the 6 pm curfew, we'd go on a walk every evening. Then we went out again with all the kids. They ran around playing tag and taureau and other games.

I baked my usual double batch of sourdough bread. Each loaf is ~ 800g, or about 2 lbs each. To make 4 loaves, it costs me just over 1 Euro for the ingredients (2 kg flour + 2 Tbsp salt). Even factoring in the price of electricity, each loaf is probably no more than 50 centimes/kg. Compare that to baguettes, which are usually 1 Euro for 250 g or 4 Euros/kg.

Dinner was zucchini fritters and spicy crab sushi.

I'm currently researching reclaimed wood flooring. I found someone in Nice but we're 2nd in line...hoping we can score it since it's a good amount for only 200 Euros. We'd have to pull it up and bring it home--no problem!

Zari is currently drawing this picture of Inga. Inga's chickenpox scar over her right eyebrow is very visible. She got chickenpox our first year here when she was 3. She only had about 3 pox total, while Ivy was covered.

  1. Hello, I am Theresa Williams After being in relationship with Anderson for years, he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to my friend and she suggested that I should rather contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that never believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I mailed the spell caster, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him. That was how we started living together happily again. Since then, I have made a promise that anybody I know that has a relationship problem, I would be of help to such a person by referring him or her to the only real and powerful spell caster who helped me with my own problem.
