A frosty weekend in the countryside

I’m feel very lucky to live in Rennes for so many reasons, many of which I’ve discussed on this very blog (mostly food related). But what I love most about Rennes is its’ size. It never feels too crowded or stressful, and most everything is within walking distance. Happily, despite its’ small size it still boasts all the benefits of city life: there are things happening here. Not that I take advantage of them as much as I should, but still, I take comfort in the fact that I can go see a ballet or the opera if I choose to. That being said, even this mini-metropolis can feel claustrophobic at times. Blame it on the claustrophobia, or on the fact that my boyfriend lives in the nearby countryside: I’ve ditched Rennes the last 2 weekends for some fresh, country air.

The only thing to do there is walk in the woods, lounge in front of a fire, and bake batch after batch of sweet things to warm up. Was I just saying that the warm winter weather was freaking me out? I take it back! It’s suddenly feeling like a real winter and I’ve forgotten exactly what that entails. Guess I’ll just have to bake some more goodies and keep warm in front of the fire. This week has scarcely begun and I’m already looking forward to next weekend…

    Good day! I could have sworn I’ve been to this blog before but after browsing through some of the post I realized it’s new to me.

    Nonetheless, I’m definitely delighted I found it and I’ll be bookmarking and checking back frequently!
