Life isn't a business to be managed, it's a mystery to be lived!

Holidays

One week off!
We went to un uncle who lives 7h away south west. Had a great dinner with grea t company.

Stayed one night and next morning, after loading the car with 2 banana trees, 1 palm tree, 3 agave and 10 L of rosé, we took off, happy and loaded.

Another 2h drive and we arrived in Pays Basque, Mauleon to be exact, where J and S live.

They have started their own business 1,5 month ago. They bake cookies and sell coffee from their cute caravan at markets. Simple and good!

All their ingredients are local and it’s all hand made. Maybe later I can show you a picture from a market.

Animal cemetery…

A couple of weeks ago I had a survivor. A birdy was blessed after smashing into our window. He stayed the afternoon and took off when he was ready.

Today is a sad day. Not one but two (!) losts..
One little birdy took a try on our kitchen window and is now in birdy heaven.

And 5 minutes ago another knock out! This little fella was going strong cuz he flew fast and I heard a strong boom and he bounced back 50cm!! He must’ve instantly broken his neck..

RIP little ones..🐦🐦

Hope the cats come around to clean up…🐈🐱

For you in the even northern parts: time will come

So lately…

September that is..a month ago we dug.

Well we decided what to do finally with the left side (when you enter) of our land. This is the part where cows are. The land has a tilt downwards to the left side. So we need to fill this up so it’s level with the terrace. We decided to build up a small wall. So I started digging for the foundation for the wall.

When G had put the wall up we started to fill up a little to hide the wall.

A little work here and there and we are slowly progressing with the outside. Which is a big relief thinking about it. Because when we will move in, the greater part of our land will be finished.

Yesterday babe decided to start cleaning up a little bit outside so he burned up all the pieces we didn’t have any use for. This is in front of the house.

The extra garage is very close to be finished. The ceiling was done last week, just before the party.

Electricity was finished yesterday. And so today we put one layer of paint on the walls and next week final layer.

Have a nice Sunday all!

Black and White

We had a birthday party to attend to last weekend, themed Black and White. So I went all in and even crosspainted my toes to match (hmm un match?) my shoes 🙂

Though I was a little afraid that we would all look like a bunch of waiters on an after party, this was a really smart theme to choose as everyone has something black and white at home. You don’t really have to go shopping for anything and when taking photos on people dancing they look simply united.
