Phil left the apartment right after breakfast to make an appointment for Sandy to see the doctor tomorrow morning at 11:20. Her foot was less painful last night but more swollen this morning. He also stopped at the Hotel/restaurant La Pie Qui Boit to cancel Sandy’s appointment with Natalie for a crochet lesson. His next stop was 4 Saisons to buy fruit since we missed the market yesterday.
Sandy cancelled our tutoring session with Christine scheduled for tomorrow and cancelled our lunch invitation with our friends Jean-Louis and Claudine for tomorrow. The rest of the day was very quiet with little activity.
The highlight of the day was a lunch of mini-pizzas. 🇮🇹🇮🇹🇮🇹🇮🇹🇮🇹🇮🇹🇮🇹🇮🇹🇮🇹🇮🇹🇮🇹🇮🇹🇮🇹
Today is Tuesday March 22. We are expecting our usual vegetable/fruit seller to be back in the local market. This market is very small but does have a butcher, 2 veg/fruit sellers, a flower seller, and a local artist with his pictures. The market is only 30 steps from our building door. But we must have misunderstood, for he was still on vacation today. So off we went in the other direction, 50 steps to the 4 Saisons (seasons) vegetable / fruit store. We bought Batavia lettuce, pears, oranges and strawberries. Back to the apartment.
After lunch our plan is to take the bus to the Catholic Relief clothing resale shop and then to the Carrefour hypermarche for some canned goods.
At the clothing shop Sandy purchased a belt and a hot pot holder. I got a new winter knit cap to replace the one I lost in the storm on March 9. Total spent 1.5€.
We walked to Saint-Servan to get the bus to Carrefour. At Carrefour we did most of our shopping but missed a couple of things on the list.
Back in the Intra-Muros we stopped at the local butcher, but he was closed. There was a note on the door explaining how extenuating circumstances caused him to be closed this afternoon. So, back to the apartment for the rest of the afternoon. The decision has been made for us, eat out tonight.
At about 19:30 we headed out to CHEZ MARCEL. Chez Marcel is a very small restaurant, 3 tables seating 12 people. Their speciality is a kebab with lamb, onions, lettuce and tomatoes with a white herb sauce. This is accompanied by fries. It was very good and inexpensive, 15€ for the two of us.
