Happy French Mother's Day!

I had a lovely day. I spent it with good friends, in the sunshine, with lots of wine and song...Well, not any songs, actually, the group was not very musical, but it was a lot of fun.


When I got home, I found my son had made a batch of chocolate chip cookies!!!
(Happy Mother's Day?)
I ate two.


Yesterday there was a small tournament nearby. There were knights in shining armor, flags, a tavern (a tent, but it was quaint.) And there were people in costume but I didn't get a photo because my batteries wore out. Argh. I wanted a picture of the little boy in the musketeer outfit, complete with plumed hat and cape! It was very hot, so we didn't stay long. But isn't the barn fascinating?
Ye olde barn with ye strangely shaped round roof. (Probably an old pigeon coop)
Ye Olde Taverne (Perrier & Mead)

Applauding the winners

I suppose the europeans draw their mythical heros along the lines of knights in armor and kings and all that regal stuff.

We poor americans have to get by with cowboys and indians.

Castles are no doubt a bit more picturesque than teepes or log cabins. Looks very summery & french!

Happy Mother's Day! I can't believe you only ate two! Were I presented with an offering of chocolate chippery I'd consume the whole batch.

I love it when you post pics of local architecture. I show it to The Man and he gets insanely jealous and insists we must travel abroad!
