All good things must come to an end, even the holidays…
Today, it’s the resumption of work for Claire. The children will go back school on August 21st, but for the teachers, it’s the moment to put themselves in the school atmosphere again, to prepare copies, to decorate the class, and to refine the welcome activities planned for the first days.
As Claire is also an executive assistant (“dean”), it’s the moment too to prepare the teachers meeting and to settle the last details of the start of the school year with the management team.
All this to tell you that she’s abandoning us all day long ! Good thing Momo is there today, but we’ll better get used to being a few hours alone from time to time again.
What do you mean, « you’re sleeping anyway » ? Absolutely not ! We are bored of every minute’s absence of our humans, but we do it with our eyes shut…
All right, we exaggerate a little, but hardly : we prefer when our humans are at home all the same, even if we’re sleeping.
Good start of the school year to all the children and to all the teachers !
Last Sunday, Claire and Momo celebrated the 20th birthday of their favorite nephew over Vevey.
The view on the Lake of Geneva is magnificent ; when they arrived, the weather was beautiful, then it became stormy. Look at the third photo, do you see how the color of the water changed ?
As we told you, Claire had a great big migraine on Monday. On Tuesday, she had more or less recovered, and took care of the garden with Momo.
On Wednesday, Claire and Momo went to Evolène. The godmother of Claire is Swiss but lives in Paris ; she comes every year to recharge in the pretty village of Evolène. To arrive there, it’s necessary to rise in the mountain over Sion, in the Val d’Hérens.
Halfway, we can see the pyramids of Euseigne : these curious cones were formed by the degradation of moraines further to the last glaciation, during the successive retreats of the glaciers which were there between -10000 and -80000 years.
Finally, it’s the arrival to the village ; its typical character was protected, and you need to walk there to appreciate all its charm. The landscape surrounding is magnificent, and multiple walks are to be planned to discover it.
