Wednesday the 19th (my Sister's birthday - happy b'day again Sis!) was a slower day. We hung out in Apt getting a little wash done (yes, undies). Paul, Helen and Betty headed for a walk around Apt to stretch their legs. I stayed to try to catch up on my travel journal (the handwritten one). While they were gone I hung out the wash to dry, dishes were done and rooms were tidied. They stopped at the Leclerc (a large grocery chain in France) and purchased provisions for the dinner we were hosting that evening for Jinny and Alexander.
I haven't really talked much about the foods we've eaten, but this dinner might give you an idea.

Lamb chops from M.Malavard boucherie

Lots of food and lots of wine...ah...no, we are not starving. (Don't worry Lynne we are walking - a lot!)
