My Town Monday

Welcome to Montchauvet, April 14, 2008. It's a rainy, dark day, as you can see. The restaurant is closed Monday, so there's no bustle, but they are cooking stock, I think, and there is a lovely odor of baking. The church roof is being repaired (see scafolding and workers' truck) and the house across the street (an old, 18th century house,) is being transformed into apartments. The people living on the square (myself included) are worried about parking. Already there are more cars than spaces, and we don't want to have to encroach on the village green.
The churchbells are ringing - it's noon. Otherwise, all is very quiet here. It is raining again, and my garden is soaked.
Another day in Montchauvet...

Your pansies from last week inspired me to plant some of my own. :)

Such a beautiful, peaceful town. Is that you riding in the previous post? I used to compete in dressage/combined training, a million years ago, and my daughter is going to start riding this spring.

You live in such a lovely town, even IF the sky is gray & rainy!

Monday is the day that most places are closed in my town, too. We are all smaller than small businesses and most of us are home on Mondays (except when we are not). It is sunny here in NE Ohio, not a common thing these days... Last week was lovely and warm, the cold front that brought us a few flakes of snow yesterday was announced by an incredible thunderstorm, complete with horizontal lightening and high winds.

Montchauvet sounds like a good writer's retreat. :)

Somehow I think we all need another day in Montchauvet. Or even one.

I love the quiet myself.

Definitely looks like a good environment to write in.

You know the grass is always greener...but Montchauvet seems so sweet, peaceful and idyllic.

Is that first picture the restaurant? It's gorgeous!

Any of your books set in Montchauvet? it looks like it would make a good backdrop, so to speak.

Your town is so beautiful. Just what I would expect a small village in France to look like. Do you know of any haunted places there? Surely with buildings that old there must be a ghostie or two or three.

Lovely pictures

What? No McDonalds?, where is the Payday Loans shop... or the Minute Nails Shop?

I remember your old blog 'Monchavet Daily Photo'.

It's a good thing you can get really political and let it all out on this new blog.
