January 2013

Another mixed month of weather - some Winter sunshine but lots of rain as well. Our photos probably give the wrong impression of much more sun than rain, but in fact the wet days are not very inspiring for taking photos!
The clay soil here in the Ariege is completely waterlogged so every new rainfall has no-where to go and the rivers are as high as we have ever seen them. However the sunny days have been beautiful, and it has been a real treat to get out in the countryside and feel the warmth in the sun. Alongside that, the snowy mountains look beautiful and very inviting.
We have been busy - we (well, mostly Dave!) have dug over the vegetable patches, I have had some watercolour commissions and we even had a visitor in the suite for a week.
We have also enjoyed some lovely evenings with friends and been out for a few walks and bike rides.
Tomorrow we set off to Morillon in the Alps for some skiing - so are looking forward to that.
Here are our albums for the month
