We had a beautiful sunset Sunday night to end our first day on heure d'été, daylight time. Then it rained most of the day yesterday, but with another nice sunny period late in the afternoon.
The sun sets after 8:00 now. I took three of these pictures out of the bedroom and then the bathroom window before I finally felt like I had to go out to the back gate and take a few more.
As our friend Evelyn pointed out in a comment a few weeks ago, we are very lucky to live in a house where we can see both the sunrise and the sunset.
Yesterday morning, on my way to the supermarket, I stopped by to see our neighbors Patricia and Bruno at their winery, Le Domaine de la Renaudie. Friends of ours from California will arrive this Friday for a short visit, and one of the things we plan to do is go to the winery Saturday afternoon for a tasting. I made an appointment for 5:00.
I had asked Bruno earlier if he knew anybody who had firewood for sale and who would deliver it this summer. Yesterday he told me he has found somebody and that we are going to be able to make a deal. It seems the father of friends of Bruno and Patricia recently passed away, leaving a lot of firewood that his children can't use. It's wood that has been aged for two or three years and will be ready to burn next winter. That's perfect.
