Monday Chores

Last night I couldn’t go to sleep, despite the soporific drum of rain on the roof and terrace.  At 3:30 I was still awake, and at some point thereafter I fell into a fitful slumber.   386 more words

Sunday Market

Sunday morning in Capestang….cathedral bells chiming, the Sunday market in the square in full swing, long line outside the boulangérie (bakery). This market has everything: gorgeous produce, olives and tapenades, bread, homemade jams, shellfish, a man with roasted chickens, potatoes and ratatouille (tonight’s dinner), meats, cheeses, pâtés….paella to-go, Asian ready-to-eat, flowers, toys, used books, clothing, leather goods, jewelry, socks and underwear. 91 more words
