Sunday afternoon in Rolle

Hey,

Still no news about the house, so we are still living out of boxes.  More on that when I know more.  But we are enjoying the house while we have it and thinking that no matter where we live, we can make it work.  Thanks for all the comments and emails about the living situation – as one friend said (S from the Nandos situation; you might remember her), whatever is meant to be will be and since it is F and me together, we will be happy anywhere, really.

We have been going for walks all over this place and have taken some pictures to share with you.  In Rolle, we are surrounded by vineyards behind us on the mountain and the lake in front of us.  Across the lake, on a clear day, we can see France (Evian) and sometimes even Mont Blanc!

The mountails on the other side are the French Alps

You just can’t help feeling chilled out.  Up in the vineyards it is so peaceful.  The only people we saw were hanging out on their balconies reading or eating lunch.  There was only the sound of the birds and the breese in the leaves.  We even whispered so that we wouldn’t disturb anything!  Next time we are going to try going further up into the hills.

Tomorrow I get to meet all the other teachers at my school and start helping to get the school ready for the kiddies who will be coming on Monday.  Soooo excited!

Happy Sunday!  oxox
