French apartment renovations, Day 179: Hot dog, hot day

17,346 steps

We're watching Baya, the Pekinese, again for the weekend. She is either sleeping or panting. Poor girl with her thick fur coat.

I didn't get much done in the Communist apartment other than drill a few holes. Our downstairs neighbor had a child home sick from school, sleeping all morning, so we decided not to work on it until he was awake.

We made a quick trip to the local hardware store to buy more MAP and lime (chaux). It was over and done in 20 minutes! So much better than taking a half-day or more to drive to Leroy Merlin. I just wish the local prices were more competitive. With the materials we bought today, the prices were fairly similar. But for most things, we pay 3-4x more to buy them in central Nice.

We ended today with a picnic on the beach with a big group of families. We had wind and waves, and the kids loved it. Even the bigger kids, who are sometimes getting to the "lazy teenage" stage where they just want to sit around the house and be lazy lumps 🙂
