WEATHER: Cold and rainy. High about 50
We stayed home all day as the weather was unpleasant and because most things are closed up here in rural Brittany on Sundays. We started the day with our chicken duties....
We collected 17 eggs, 2 that were ugly and cannot sell (for us to eat) and 15 good ones.
One of the neighbors raises cows. We get our milk there. We take an empty bottle over along with 50 cents, leave it on a ledge, then pick up the milk a few hours later. We had left the empty bottle and money there yesterday, but we forgot to go pick it up. So, the neighbor dropped it by today. We had a frustrating conversation in French. We don't know what she was trying to tell us. We tried telling her that we would buy another bottle on Wednesday, for one of our customers who picks up eggs. She was totally confused. I even wrote it out on my ipad using a French translation app, to no avail.
George did a few little maintenance jobs, like repairing gates. I spent most of the day reading in front of the fire.
