We were already in bed when a terrible thunderstorm started over the lake. Up we went to the living room with French windows from one side to the other of the house and standing there all three in our nighties, we admired the beautiful lightening over the lake ! It was very impressive and the lightening was not only sudden light but really had this zig zag shape !
I can't remember when I had seen this the last time. After this free amazing show, we returned to bed and listened to the thunder which slowly went away.
In the morning it was a little cloudy and cooler, so we went shopping and filled in the fridge again.
Then we had our lunch on the terrace, Dominique is waiting for us.
and while we were eating we saw all these little sailing boats on the lake. The sky over the lake looks different every minute, or almost.
In the afternoon it cleared up and we could use the beach beds, but not the swimming pool. It was full of leaves. Nicole saw me sitting on the little wall and wanted to take a picture of me, so I posed. But when I got up the wall broke (I am probably too heavy) and two pieces stuck on my bottom and then fell down. We bursted out in laughter and had a closer look at the wall which needs to be rapaired.
After our supper we had another thunderstorm, but this time with buckets of rain and a very strong wind.
We watched the lightening again and talked and talked and then went to bed. When I entered my room a drop of water fell on my head. I was rather surprised. Water dripped from the ceiling ! My room is located under one of the terraces and a tile was loose. I slept with a bucket under the spot where the water came through. Monday workers will come and start to repair at least provisional before the winter.
To avoid that the drops falling into the bucket were not a Chinese torture for me, we put an old bath towel in the bucket and I didn't hear the drops. Again we had to laugh seeing each other half undressed running around for rags and towels and then checking all ceilings on the first floor ! Fortunately only my room was damaged.
One thing is for sure our risible muscles are well being trained !
