Every once in a blue moon we have ‘neighbour dog issues’. It’s not really all that frequent, but last night was one of those nights. A near non-stop barking tirade from 10pm until midnight (at which time I’m wide awake due to aggravation…. until about 2:30am), then again in barking spurts at 2:50, 3:15 and 3:24am.
With only 3 full hours of sleep before a drive to Angers, my expectations were low. Nevertheless, let me tell you about…
- Sunrise over the Thouet river in Montreuil-Bellay. Just take a look at the photo below… it was absolutely perfect. It’s a lovely spot but you only see this view from the highway bridge: There’s no sidewalk and I don’t usually have time to stop & walk back. How to get a picture to share? Today traffic was thin so I just pointed my iPhone out the passenger window and… voilà! Thank you Lord that I can share this beautiful vista of western France with you today.
- Classes have finished in Angers for the year, but I was back up for an end-of-year meeting for teaching staff. It was a great opportunity to exchange with colleagues about their experience of the school year and learn tricks that can then be used to improve my own teaching in the future.
- Upon arriving home, I was only in the house for a few minutes before Liz suggested I try to recoup a bit of last night’s lost sleep before supper with a quick nap on the couch. I was awakened a full two hours later by the sound of “food & fellowship” happening at the supper table. Wow!
