An April weather Easter weekend

Belated Happy Easter wishes! 🐣

I hope you enjoyed precious time with your families. We did, with our four-legged 'babies’!

Canal du Midi near Carcassonne




On Sunday, we were fortunate enough to see the sun all day, so, after putting the washing on so it can dry outside, we took Ellie Dog on a 2-hour walkie along the Canal du Midi, close to our home.

The path on one side is wide enough for us to walk and chat, however, the other side – our return from the lock – was narrow, and often overgrown. Still, quite an adventure, especially when we spotted the gorgeous views that reached as far as the snow-capped peaks of the Pyrenees.

Ellie loved her exploration, but she was completely zonked out afterwards, enjoying the sunshine in the garden. One happy girl.










And even hubby and I managed to relax a little in the garden on our return, with a delicious Aperol Spritz. I had a chance to catch up on re-reading Dark Deceit, alongside some research material, Stephen and Matilda by Jim Bradbury. Yes, I'm plotting the long-awaited sequel! May I ask for a little more patience...

On Monday, the weather turned, and with April the high winds and rain arrived. Luckily, during our morning walkie along the beautiful Lac de la Cavayère just outside Carcassonne, the rains held back, and Ellie loved exploring a new place. We'll definitely go back, perhaps on a calmer, sunnier day. Another 1 1/2 hours later, and we ended up stuck indoors as the winds battered our shutters. Even the cats didn't want to go out!

So, a relaxing Easter weekend was had, but now it's back to editing, while the winds are still howling outside. Coffee helps...  😊😊
