Bon Appétit Hodgepodge

Merci to Joyce From This Side of the Pond for coming up with the questions for us to answer.

1. Tell us about one small blessing you have counted in the past week? 

Not so small but we got to hug our second born after not seeing him for 7 weeks!

2. Bastille Day is celebrated on July 14th…have you ever been to France? 
No, I’ve never been to France.
Any desire to visit there, and if so what would site or city would you most want to see? (pretend for a minute international travel isn’t an issue) 
France is not on my top ten places to visit list. If I traveled there I’d be interested in Mont Saint Michel and Normandy.
3. A food associated with France that you love? 
A croissant and cassoulet
4. Something you recently purchased where a coupon was involved? Do you regularly shop with coupons? 
I’ve only used online coupons these days. I do not regularly shop with coupons anymore.
5. You have to give something away this week…what will it be? 
I’ll give away some of my garlic.
6. Insert your own random thought here.
Speaking of France, our lavender is in it’s glory right now. It is always a treat to weed around the lavender and enjoy that fragrance.
About Ellen am a wife, mother, baba (grandmother) and a loyal friend. Jesus is my King and my hope is in my future with Him.

  1. Ellen, your lavender is absolutely gorgeous. I love it’s fragrance. So glad you got to hug your son after many weeks. Looks like you have lots of garlic to share. Enjoy your day.

  2. very glad that the long shift is over… can’t even imagine… especially these days

    Funny, France is not high on my list either… especially these days…

    your lavendar is marvelous!

  3. I have been to Mont St Michel and it’s fascinating, also quite touristy now but still worth a visit. Normandy and the surrounding countryside is lovely…we especially enjoyed Bayeux (home to the famous tapestry) and Honfleur ( a seaside town). Your lavender is so pretty!

  4. I have two lavender plants growing in pots. Lavender will not winter over here in Northwest Wisconsin, so I bring the pots in. So far so good, I have been able to winter my plants over going on 4 years.

    • I have friends who go every year to this? I’d love to go sometime. I think it’s about a 3 or 4 hour drive from me. I can’t remember but it looks pretty. I’ve visited a few lavender farms in Oregon that were gorgeous.

    • MaryBeth, Yes we’ve been to the Lavender festival in Sequim when we lived in Kenmore. We went 3 or 4 different years. Always such a treat especially if you can dodge the crowds.

  5. Your lavender is beautiful. I need to cut mine now as it’s beginning to dry out. I love France and have visited 4 times. Not just Paris, but the beautiful countryside of Normandy and Provence. We visited the Canadian/British landing beaches from D-Day and found it very meaningful.
