Jeanne D’Arc


Jeanne D’Arc

I found this beautiful statue on Etsy. She’ll be resident under the big Acer tomorrow, but she looks great in my hallway! Anyway, site well worth a look. Brighthelm Stone. Arrived 2 days after ordering. You can choose from three different finishestoo. Not overpriced at all. Very heavy. Great quality.

Its beautiful Karen just the kind of thing I love , I'm afraid I'm having problems finding space for all the garden ornaments we brought with us since down sizing but I'm going to have a look anyway :o)

Aw Amy...a nice problem to have. This is me just starting with ornaments. I’ve accumulated a few these past couple of years, but this is my first ‘human’ statue. I think she looks courageous and determined!

She does that karen ,we were fortunate in being able to visit the place where she was born in France when on holiday a couple of years ago ..

There is a photo of it on Wiki. It looks very beautiful, simple and rural. There is so much of France I would love to see. :)

I still have the post card that you sent me from the Dordogne of Castelnaud et Beynac, Amy. You are both lucky to be just across a Channel rather than an ocean!
I couldn't resist chiming in with a me too! Especially the South West corner of France and would also love to see the Pyrenees. That is a wonderful piece of art.

It's really lovely, Karen (and I'm not usually one for ornaments). Yes, France is always a treat to visit . . . we love the SW corner too, Lori, and I was lucky enough to spend a week in the Pyrenees in July this year - fabulously unspoilt. I hope to take OH for a week early next year to a corner of Provence :)

I have never been the the Pyrenees. The furthest South I've been is Dordogne and the Bordeaux area. But I'd love to go ...it looks incredible on the telly. Especially the pilgrim route.

santiagodecompostela.net It looks like there are a few tours offered, Karen. it's just over the Pyrenees in Galicia. That would be a wonderful holiday trip. Will we see your pics on GoY?

Hmm...knowing my OH’s hatred of a country walk...better not hold your breath!

oh well... where there's a will...there's a way!

Actually Lori...I’ve given up walking for the time being as I suffer with Sciatica, and walking seems to really set it off. I decided to use my indoor cycling machine instead..just started on Monday and did it every morning Monday to Friday, and by thursday the pain was gone! I’m really happy because it was getting a bit miserable! But for now I seem to have found a way to relieve it. I had no idea that it would work...don’t really know what I expected, but I’m really happy!

Lovely statue Ck. Glad to hear your pain has gone. Hope it's gone for good for you.

Thanks Linda. The gardening always starts it off again. Its the lifting that does it. I think once you’ve had an episode of Sciatica, it then just becomes an exercise in managing it. I find a combination of Pilates, yoga and cycling is the best strategy. I hardly ever need painkillers, but after lifting and spreading 20 90L bags of mulch...then I definitely do!

I'm glad your self help treatment is working for you Karen ,its often a combination of different exercises which help , I burst a disc many years ago and tried just about everything going ,I have an exercise bike also one of those walking things ,funny thing is I found riding a real bike made it far worse . Please be careful ,think about what you're doing especially the lifting ..
All this talk of France is making me desperate to go back ,we missed our trip this year due to moving house ... :o(

I haven’t been for years Amy! Not since the children were pre-teens! Oh, no, I tell a lie..I’ve been to Paris since...but that’s not the same as rural France!

6 Dec, 2018

 

We have a small sack truck that we move things about with now Ck. It makes it much easier.

7 Dec, 2018

 

I have one of those Linda, but I could do with something better. I’ll have a look to see what’s available..thanks!
