Happy Birthday To Me

Yes, another birthday has come and gone. I’m at the age now when I can’t get too excited that I am another year older. Since we just got back from Switzerland, I couldn’t ask for another trip somewhere as a gift so I picked out a place I have heard of for a birthday lunch in Cucuron called l’Horloge.

It wasn’t the best meal I have ever had but good and a very good value. Maurice and I drank a whole bottle of wine between us so a nap was also on the menu when we got back home.

Cucuron is known for this pond surrounded by 200 year old plane trees

There was a cheese course and, new to me, some confits such as onion which went really well with the cheese.

This little chef was in a window next to our restaurant. I think that next time I will go in and have a look at the confitures for sale.

  1. Many Happy Returns Linda!!!!! My but that restaurant looks very cosy. Confits? would that be like our pickles/chutneys? Sounds wonderful onions AND French Cheese yum yum.

  2. Happy Birthday!! What a beautiful place to have a meal! Even if it wasn’t the best, the ambiance makes up for it!
    Sounds like you had a lovely Birthday!

  3. Happy Birthday, Linda. Here’s to another wonderful year of celebrating life and in Paris and Provence! Looks like a lovely romantic place for dinner and wine.

  4. Belated Happy Birthday, Linda!
    I love that you usually celebrate by taking interesting trips – so much more satisfying than just accumulating “stuff”…

  5. Happy Birthday, Linda! Here’s to many more wonderful years to come and many more fascinating travels. Today is Rod’s birthday; we also celebrated with a nice lunch because he has a sculpture class tonight.

  6. Belated birthday greetings, Linda!!! So sorry I missed it but it looks like you and Maurice had a lovely lunch in Cucuron. Thanks for another wonderful year of your beautiful photos and travel stories.

    P.S. I made your Breton Apple Cake for friends the other day and they went crazy for it!

  7. You’ve certainly hit upon the right idea by celebrating life every year, all year, through capturing memories large and small in this personal photojournal – generously shared with an appreciative international audience. We’ve “oohed” and “aahed” over everything from lilac shutters in Provence or a blazing Chinese Red Eiffel Tower to the life cycle of a crummy caterpillar — and loved each moment. We’ve shared your cooking innovations with family saying “this is Linda’s recipe” like you were living next door. What could be a better memorial to life’s adventures than this connection of friendship you have with all the world. And so many of us have enjoyed day after day of fun traveling with you. Happy Birthday Linda, and many thanks for including all of us in your journeys. Long may they continue!

  8. A very happy birthday this must be… new grandchildren, your son and his family coming to Switzerland… I hope the rest of your year is just as filled with wonderful things like this. Birthday bises to you!

  9. A very happy belated birthday to you! The hub’s was on the 1st. Aren’t you happy you stayed in the womb a day longer! Poor guy, gets all the April fool’s jokes. xo

  10. Happy Belated Birthday, Linda!
    Wishing you a year filled with much love, laughter and sunshine.
    Looked like a very picturesque place to celebrate your birthday.
