Life in France…

Is full of so many noteworthy things!

Around town I see amazing yoga billboards, old ladies dressed French style, newborns left on the sidewalk while their moms run inside for something, new mini stores popping up on sidewalks and local teenagers learning baseball – using T-ball equipment so they can get a hit…

Recently, in our local maison de quartier, there was an open house showing all the work people have been doing in art classes this year…  there is some major talent in St. Claude.

Even kids are talented- check out the sculptures (you know you are in France when there is a peeing statue sculpture on display)

We discovered they even had a library… and did you know Where’s Waldo? is Ou Est Charlie? here???  I never cease to be amazed.

There is a farm near Emmaus that has baby piggies – they are super cute!

I got a flat tire recently while in Mr. Liberty – the guy from the local garage came over to the car and changed the tire for me all in less than 20 minutes – and charged me only about 15 bucks. I like this aspect of French life!

We continue to do local adventures – buying a genuine JAZ clock at a yard sale, and visiting local towns for free spectacles.

And of course, our life at home is never boring – filled with art, hydration, fashion, dishwashing and, at the end of the day, rest (yes, Griffin really does sleep like that!)
