Winter time


This week was all but quiet. All of a sudden the municipality of Prayssac found a second breath and started works around the house to dig in the electric wires. Although in the end it will be a nice thing to be done this wasn't a nice surprise at this time of the year.
Because of that a trip to Belgium was cancelled and the Christmas festivities that were planned were celebrated without me.
Next time I'm gonna write to Father Christmas: I prefer not to have presents at all than such kind of presents.

Moreover they couldn't progress as they wanted as contrary to the weather forecasts it snowed in Prayssac. Yes, indeed. You don't believe it? See for yourself.
First it drizzled on Monday but then in the night of Wednesday some ten centimetres of snow fell and it is still there. A nice change.

We from Mas de l'Houvande wish you all a very nice and white Christmas.

Winter break (2)


The winter 2010 has started yesterday morning : it has frozen all night and the weather forecasts announce till -6° on Tuesday. Next week will be cold, no snow - but sunny.

Luckily last week was rather warm so that San Nicolà - you know the Holy Man from Bari, Italy - found all the way to Prayssac.

Working and amusing myself a bit on the computer - learning new software programs - I managed to get my computer an infection. So calls to family and friends abroad with the computer are for the time being impossibile.
Instead I was able to clean the garage so far that for the first time since the beginnings of the house the garage can be used for what it is meant for : the hosting of the car - just in time for winter.

See you next week.

Retrospective 1 : Montcuq


What do you do on a Sunday in the Lot when you are on holiday - or when you are alone - or when it is Santa Claus - , the weather is fine and you want to see something?

Yes, right, you go to Montcuq, visit the market, have a walk through the historic city and yes, have your coffee on a terrace.

I hope the photos below will bring back some nice memories (thanks to Gerd & Michael).






Have a nice sunday. And a nice Santa Claus.
