Again. A week slips by. Where have I been? On vacation? (Much needed after the spring-break vacation move?) Mais non. Buried in writing that best-selling novel now that I have a big studio work-space.... or shopping til I drop at the now lively seasonal flea markets and brocantes.... ???
Non. non, non...
Non. non, non...
Well....uhm.... not any of that--well maybe a tiny bit of the later.
But mostly mes amis---I have been right here--in the reluctantly arriving Normandy spring--(Yes I am very aware that we may just skip it entirely and head into SUMMER next month!) and well---in between unpacking, house projects, entertaining family, getting les enfants adjusted to the new home.... I have been...
Embracing my "inner farm-girl"....
This is Bonnie. She shows up at the back kitchen window every morning to say 'Bonjour'.... she will give me the 'cold-shoulder' the rest of the day if I don't at least open the window to greet her. Bonnie is actually so popular on Instagram--she now has her own 'hash-tag'...
But between face-time with Bonnie---this is happening. Work on the kitchen---We built a small counter in the back kitchen, I am working on making drapes for a 'doggie-den' below the counter and that room is pretty close to becoming just-right for our family! This weekend the prep sink goes into the vintage butcher's table in the front kitchen too!
For upstairs---lamps have been found for our bedroom (purchased at Les Puces de Deauville last weekend--made out of vintage chair and table legs) and this great chest of drawers that we got from an auction house---at a steal! STEAL---almost free! Just needed minor repair and cleaning!
|Little kitty---met very large (but friendly) BULL.|

|Planning the great escape ... to be with the cows.|
But mostly--the pictures say it all---as usual. The poor rabbits of 'Rabbit Hill' have taken second seat to the cows for the moment. (Even though they vastly out-number them and they are so darn cute!)
French Guy thought that our Siamese, Stella should meet them face to face.... The boys are fascinated with the 'dynamics' of the herd and Petite Fille is constantly going to the windows to say hello to 'les vaches' ...
... and me---well--the inner-farm-girl thing.
... Getting used to their 'personalities' habits and ...... that stuff that the doggies keep insisting to roll-in...... eeeeek.
Lesson #2 about farm life....
It seeps, spreads, and invades....every part of your home.... and family.
So get used to it.
It's better that way.
Hope you are having a great week!
The weekend is almost here!
