my commute to work

ok so this is what I get to see everyday on my way to and from work. Be careful, it's brutal!!!!
my favorite tree on the mountain

just to prove to you that I really am in my car...

the village back there is Quaix en Chartreuse

nipple mountain (that's what we call it)! I did not mess with the colors in these pictures!

we call this one dinosaur mountain

apple tree

it's really fun to drive this road

how can we get tired of this??? we don't!!

our village Sarcenas. population 165 souls.  We live 4km away...

I feel I need to say (again) I did not mess with the colors!

this is the other side of the mountain, thought I'd throw them in just for fun! Chris was driving...

So there you have it! Now you can feel real sorry for us because this is what we get to see day in and day out...

We had the most beautiful sunrise this morning, add to it the frost and it was just gorgeous!

morning frost

this afternoon we went for a walk, just a little bit down the hill, and there we found treasures:


nope these aren't rolls...they're mushrooms!

nope! not chocolate truffles...mushrooms!

blowfish?? no no! mushroom!!

Chris pointed these flowers to me, they feel like paper and they are the size of pinheads...

So needless to say, it was just another beautiful moment spent with my husband! All of this within a 5 minute walk from the front door! How lucky are we???
