Of Sunflower Fields And Daily Bread

The Auvergne may not have fields of lavender like Provence, but the fields of sunflower are perhaps even more spectacular.  The last few days have been absolutely gorgeous here, and the sunflowers are in full bloom.  It is quite a sight, especially under a clear blue sky.
Our life here consist of going to the market, cooking, eating, taking walks and visiting friends.  Sometime soon, we will have to start working on the house, but it is easy to let the day slip by.
The most pressing concern every day seems to be: who will go down to the village to get the bread?  What kind should we get? And how many loaves?
Can you blame us?

I am in the south of France presently , before this Paris.
The pastries have been out of this world especially the croissants (almond, chocolate ).
But the food Lunch and dinner has been a huge disappointment to say the least. Unless you are eating at Alan Ducasee Resturaunt it's not worth writing about.

Greetings Katia,

Geez, your life sure stinks doesn't it? :-). While you are enjoying sunny skies, sunflowers and fresh-baked bread - my weekend was sweat, sticky and more sweat. Our air conditioner went kaplow Friday eve. Have to get new unit. The average temp here now is 100 degrees with 100% humidity. But, I digress! As usual, LOVING the photos. Thanks for taking my mind of my trouble for a minute! GOD bless!
