This morning I vacuumed, after four days at La Thebaudiere it must be home. The routine home chores add to a sense of normalcy in this place that is mostly normal. A few things to learn, like how hot water tanks work, cooking on propane stove, building fires in a wood stove, and the reality of how few plug-ins there are in a 230 year old stone cottage. Yet it is all beginning to feel normal.
Neville has settled in well, read about his adventures at Tricia’s blog. My morning routine of coffee and reading are already reestablished so all is good. Here is my journal page from yesterday.
Yesterday we had lunch at Le Bistro Saint Julien in Domfront, my confit de boeuf.
