Well, since there is nothing in my schedule until Monday, today is a vacation day for me and it has been rather nice. Madame and Monsieur were right on it to make sure I would have things to occupy me today. They are both the natural parenting kind which is rather nice to a foreigner like me. It is the little things like leaving the TV guide at my table place at breakfast today that makes one's experience ridiculously nice. I'm feeling a little spoiled already! So I'll knit, read Le Petit Prince (which I have never read before so finally I've started it in the original French version), watch French DVDs, and head into town about noon for lunch.
IN THE MEANTIME.....finally, I have photos to show off. Today's theme is my home for four months.Below is my bedroom which is rather comfy and because the neighborhood is so nice and quiet, it is really easy to get a good night's sleep.
And here is the upstairs I share with the youngest son. The other two Peaud children are, of course, at school. Apparently Mathilde, the middle child and only girl, comes almost every weekend back home so I'll get to meet her soon.
The turquoise thing in the photo of the shower is my bathrobe for my stay from my host family. I even have a matching towel!
The toliet is kept in a different room that reminds me of something like a linen closet...but not like in a bad way or anything.
These photos below are the kitchen and living room. As you might imagine the house is nothing vast but it isn't in the least bit cramped.
Here's something different for me! Shoes are somewhat forbidden throughout the house. I keep mine with the family's in the laundry room. Instead, everyone wears slippers. These are the ones I get to wear while I'm here! Hey, they work for what they need to do. What do you all think?
I love how many dogs I've seen! I took this in the morning as the sun was coming up...in 9 in the morning! Illinois's winter looks sunny next to Anger's. I've quickly gotten used to it. I just thought this was cute as I was taking a picture of the house this morning.
