Wow, temperatures here are supposed to be very close to 80ºF today (that's 26ºC), with bright sun. That'll be fun, but then tomorrow one weather site says we're going to get about an inch (24 mm) of rainfall and have a high temperature of 60ºF (about 15ºC). It's a veritable roller coaster ride.
The good weather today and the rain following means it really is time to get out the rototiller and run it over the garden plot one last time before we set out the tomato, bell pepper, eggplant, kale, and squash plants. I want to get that work done so that I can be freed up to go to Paris for a few days.
There's a nice view of this building from the new footbridge at the train station in Blois.
I got to the train station at 2 p.m. without having had lunch, so these pastries were tempting.
Here are a few more photos that I took in Blois the other day when I drove up there to meet Walt at the train station. He was coming from Paris after flying back to France from Montréal on Air Canada.
The first train here is the one Walt was on. It was coming from Paris and going on to Amboise and Tours.
Here's the train from Paris-Gare d'Austerlitz pulling into the station at Blois.
Walt, by the way, is still struggling with jet lag. Sleepless nights and groggy afternoons are the pattern. It's gradually getting better, but he's not up yet this morning so I don't know if he was actually able finally to sleep through the night.
Tomorrow, maybe some photos of my gardening exploits...
