Having a bad day

Today is one of those days when you wish you had a rewind or fast forward button on life. Neither Owen nor I slept well last night. I heard foxes in heat all night long and Owen was coughing and trying to breath through a snot faucet. So, this morning, there was a lot of crying by both parties.

Yet, somehow, laundry still managed to get done and we both enjoyed our quiet play time: arts & crafts.

Here are our finished pieces:

Celebratory challah

Today is our 6th monthiversary in France. We are still settling in and adjusting to life (more about that in a later post). In celebration of today, Owen and I made challah. It was fun and YUMMY! Sean is in Switzerland preparing to hike the Haute Route. So he wouldn't miss out on the celebration, we froze half of the loaf for him. ;o)

We also have beautiful roses in bloom in our garden. I cut a few and now our house smells so wonderful. I wish this blog has smell-a-vision.
