Left around 9:30 for the weekly market in Lezay – it was smaller than the huge one we went to last year in Rouillac, but was pretty impressive none-the-less.
There were lots of nice cheeses, meats, etc, as well as a bunch of junk. Also the live animals and birds – including lots of bunnies, some raised and some wild (poor little things must be terrified).
After the market we stopped by the charity shop at St. Soline which raises money for and supports animal shelters, etc.
We walked around a bit and Colin spent some time in the ‘book shop’ picking out paperbacks and 80’s cd’s.
We had tea and a sandwich in the cafe, visited the ‘for adoption’ doggies, including a jack russell-cross with a head-cone on, then headed to Ruffec for groceries before going home.
While trying to carry more than I should have downstairs I dropped the laundry soap on the floor and it split open and almost emptied itself. I never realized before quite how sticky laundry soap is – I must have used half an industrial-sized paper towel roll trying to mop it up, then resorted to a floor mop and water.
While Colin and I were involved in cleaning up the mess Mo was busy upstairs cleaning up something else – she had gotten into the grocery bag and removed the mini-sausages the Colin had bot for her – she had eaten the entire bag!
By the time we had cleaned up the laundry soap it was too hot to go for a ride, so I just stayed inside out of the heat and read a book until we walked down to the campground for dinner just before 8:00. Colin and Neil both got burgers while I chose pasta.
Mo was acting a bit strange – I think digesting all that sausage was very tiring for her and she was pretty lethargic. She didn’t look quite like a python that swallowed a goat, but she was a bit rounder than normal.
