After more weeks than I care to remember, we've finally had two days in a row of cloudless blue skies and brilliant warm sunshine. My village has regained its normal good humor, and yesterday's market in Cajarc was quite lively. I met a friend at 4 pm here at Le President, and we sat on the terrace soaking up the sun (and sipping adult beverages!) until almost 6 pm. It was glorious! I even came home with pink cheeks...from the sun, not the kir I drank. The terrace was full, we were greeted by many people we knew, and were entertained by children zipping by on their scooters, bikes and skates. It's amazing how a little sun improves everyone's attitude!
