Chat, chat, work, work.

Time is what we want most, but... what we use worst. ~Willaim Penn

The days are wizzing by but mostly in a good way, a Friday evening with friends, an afternoon in a sunny garden, a morning learning a new word in French sitting by a fountain, a Sunday afternoon chatting with new folks in the village.

But while I enjoy company the grass grows thick with zillions of daisies and clover, come pick me, cry the peas and raspberries . Sit for a moment and the cobwebs are a foot across. Paperwork accumulates, weeds multiply, the dust on the car hides its true colour, is it blue or green?........So the rest of the time I am busy, busy, busy!

I pop into Blogland to see what you are all doing, there is not always time to make a comment but I read wise words, enjoy arts and crafts, and sometimes become concerned if a fellow bloggerpal is unhappy or sad!

Always time for friends

Time for a week out with the camera, and not clock watching..thats next week! I hope to be doing some of the following.

Visiting Old Relics

Tee..hee hee..........

Travelling around, well a wee bit

Doing a little shopping?

Looking around markets?

I hope you have some time to get out and chat with friends too!

A French word for chat is papoter

The French word for clover is trefle.

PS. If you want information about Brittany you may like this place where I have been posting pictures on a New Look Brittany Friends link here.

I love the way you describe things!! This post really made me think of the hot, lazy summers spent with my Dad in France pottering about doing very little but having a lovely time...hopefully we'll get to visit next year!! (although we are toying with going to a wine weekend in Galliac in November)

I love your photo's (as always) and that red bag with the flowers is gorgeous!!

Enjoy taking your photos :-)

You have a good way with words. They convey atmosphere.
Enjoy the week.

A lovely post as always. We are all guilty of wasting time, I do it a lot. I need to be better organized so that I can do more.

I've lived in many different places over the years but Brittany has presented a new phenomenon to me - the drifting away of the day in a gentle rush. I just don't know where the days go - yet all of a sudden it is time to put the bin out again on a Monday night and it's another week gone away into the ether.

Must be the relaxed way of life we have chosen here.

Like Carol I also loved that bag with the flowers

I love that Penn quotation - such a good reminder to us all.

Sounds like you're having a lot of fun. Enjoy!

Blu, finally I'm able to comment after 3 wks of not being able to!

Actually now that I think of it, there are many who won't be happy about that....

Carol said...

I've done a painting of one of your photo's Blu. I've really not been able to do the photo justice at all but I've posted it on the blog if you want to go and have a look.

Ps. I plan to have another go once my painting skills improve :-)
