French Fact – Late Dinners

I have been working so much on this home, working at the law office, & my French class, that I stopped walking the dogs.
With so much rain in the past month, I really did not want to deal with a muddy dog, on top of my list of things to clean, so I stopped .. which is not good for either of us ..
So I have started to take the dogs , for an after – dinner walk .. and I want to share with you , and odd truth; I have always heard that the French eat dinner very late, like 8 pm .. and I think, I understand why ..

I just came back inside from our walk – and its 9pm here !! do you see that daylight still ?? So, our usual routine is ; come home from work, around 6pm, then either work in the garden or run and do some errands before the store closes ( usually around 8pm- no 24hr Walmarts here) . Then start dinner ..so yes, we do eat dinner at 8pm, but take a café to hold us over until dinnertime.

As you can see- the dogs and I are walking behind our new home – next to a wheat farm …its beautiful & peaceful . I like it when there are no people around- and all you see and hear is the wind sweeping the tops of the wheat around …(swoosh) …. And a faint smell of wisteria is on the wind..a VERY popular plant here .. if I close my eyes..I almost feel like I am back in South Carolina … except, I am wearing a light jacket, and you know that is not normal in June in S.C. – ha
