So this is 60!!
I don’t feel older, and I don’t think I act like most 60-year old ladies, so what is a number?
My birthday started with beautiful blue sky and sunshine. Colin went out for most of the morning while Mo and I stayed home and did yoga – she actually participated instead of lounging on the couch watching me.
When Colin returned we headed up to Villejesus for my birthday lunch at the restaurant of my choice, La Cagoulle. Mo came with us so we sat in the courtyard under a nice large canopy. The restaurant cat was curled up the whole time on a chair on the other side of the courtyard – I don’t think Mo even knew it was there.
Of the two available starters Colin got the tomato and mozzarella salad (that looked awesome) while I chose melon with ham – just as lovely a flavour combination as I remembered the first time I had it at Michele’s and Florence’s. We both got beef for our main course, which was extremely tender and delicious – kind of a casserole in a tomato sauce with bok choy and zucchini, along with seared potatoes. I was very full but did manage to eat almost half of my dessert – rhubarb crumble with vanilla ice cream – it was tasty, but a bit on the sweet side for me.
On the way home we stopped to visit with Tony and Joyce for a couple of hours.
Back at home we watched the final of the Tour of Britain that had taped yesterday – today’s a rest day at the Vuelta so nothing new there. After such as large lunch we didn’t have dinner – just an ice cream bar and a few cashews.
A lovely sunset capped off a lovely day…
