Just a few jobs around the house and a leisurely walk around town. That about sums up the day!
The courtyard is big, but the lawn is tiny -
a whipper snipper and a guy on a mission can trim the lawn quickly.
Careful! There are herbs there that should be protected and some lovely vines clinging to the brick wall leading down to the wine cellar.
See the clothes line behind Karl? I hang all my laundry there and it smells so fresh when it comes in! Now if I could only figure out how to bring back a couple of bottles of Persil, a laundry detergent that we don't have in Canada and that I absolutely love... Can we mail liquids? It would probably cost a lot of euros to send 3L of anything in the mail!
Beautiful trees line many of the streets. We see this in the countryside, too.

|Pretty white flowers|

These two horses were here a couple of years ago, but in a different paddock. Who knows what their names are, but we call them Jacques and Jean. We used to stop and pet them regularly. How wonderful to find them again!
The "Lavoir des Fijolleaux" in St. Jacques de Thouars where people used to do laundry. It used to be on the pilgrims' route of Saint-Jacques-de-Compostelle.
The priory is right next to it.
Can you see the two white birds on the branch? They look so calm. It's peaceful here.
Not all days are filled with adventures, exploration and discoveries. Or even wonderful meals in a great restaurant. Some of them are just perfect moments strung together like pearls.
