Off to a Provence Vineyard...

Aah... fresh air... blue skies... and WINE... what more could you ask for... let's enjoy our weekend at the vineyard...Look there is a table set up for a little game of chess and a bottle of wine... just wondering... how well can one play a game of chess while drinking wine... doesn't one need to concentrate... hmmm...You know if you're up to it... let's go on a bike ride... I hear there is a place to buy fresh flowers, fruits and vegetables down the road... but we must be careful... there are some crazy drivers on the road...
Wonderful finds at the marche... I will make us some lunch... or maybe we can get a cooking lesson from Laura Neulat of A World in a Pan ... she loves to give cooking lessons in her home in Paris and the French Countryside as well... actually she travels all over... let me ring her...Lunch was fabulous... perhaps a little more exercise is in order... how about a game of tennis... watch out for that crazy dog... he likes to steal the balls... are you saying "what dog"... oh you will see him the minute you serve the ball...Wow... that was quite a work out... good game... I don't know about you... but a dip in the pool sounds delightful... ooh la la... there is more wine... I guess when you are at a vineyard, it is everywhere... all this activity and wine... I think a nap will be in order before we head out tonight...Oui... we are off to the village... A light supper... more wine... Cheers to A Good Year!Listen... I hear music and it's play with a movie in the background... how lovely... hey... look over there... don't those people look familiar...

Hmmm... that bottle of wine looks expensive... one of those fancy boutique wines... do you think they might share it with us? Oh, what do we care... we are staying at a vineyard... let's head back to the Chateau... I don't know about you, but I am very tired...this has been a long day...
Oh yes... before I drift off to sleep... whatever you do... DO NOT remove the smelly box of lavender in the window! Bon Nuit... I'm sleep in tomorrow... enjoy your day in Provence... see you Monday!

Thank you for your comment at Decorina. I've never been to Provence, but I did plant my entire front yard in Lavender and can pretend.

Wowderful as usual. I feel like I am there. You captured the essence beautifully. Makes me want to crawl into that lovely bed and sleep off this perfectly lovely virtual day in Provence. :))

Gorgeous! I love Provence . . . I haven't been for many years but I can still recall the amazing scenery and the scent of lavender. These photos really evoke it!

I was excited to see your beautiful paintings based on A Good Year. I watched this movie for the first time about a week ago and loved it.

I got my bookmarks in the mailbox today, and they're even more beautiful in person! Thanks, Fifi! -Julia :-)
