Our "To Do" list is growing exponentially as we prepare for our late August departure to France. Every day has been jam-packed with gathering material for our visa applications, figuring out what to pack, store, ship, sell and toss, plus making time to take Berlitz French lessons 5 days a week. We all feel like we have been tossed into a salad spinner!
The other item of some concern was the house we will be leasing in Bedoin. We had only seen a few snapshots of the empty house, and since we are committing to a year there, everyone was imagining showing up to move into a ruin. Happily, some friends who live an hour away were nice enough to meet the owner at the property, and sent a glowing report, along with photos of the house and garden.
It is terrific to be together and working towards the same goal. On y va!
