Just for Mom...
who told me how happy it makes her to read about my good days. Well, here are a few more.
Thursday: went with a friend to Paris to move her stuff. Ate at a cute bistro, watched a cute movie (I heartily recommend 'Paris je t'aime -- it's a mixture of French and English, hence quite easy to understand'). Got quite a bit into my new book.
Friday: watched the military parade at home on TV (which I totally loved), then went into Paris with S to watch the fireworks. Had a nice dinner at a trendy restaurant that was way too cool for us, but we liked the food a lot. It had an apple theme, and very good cheesecake. Bought 2 more vacation books -- Freakanomics for me, some sciencey thing for the husband.
Saturday: Went into Paris to listen to jazz music in the Parc Floral. Lazed about all day under a tree with a book. Had a long nap. Took the long way back to the train station...ate ice cream and steak along the way. Yes, in that order.
Sunday: Hung out at home. For whatever reason, I was exhausted. S kindly indulged my need for The Sound of Music.
Today I went into Paris for the 4th time in 5 days to meet a friend, who didn't show up. No problem, 'cause I've got the whole hanging out thing down pat. Found peppermint tea, more books, presents for new babies...none of which I bought, but at least I know where they are when I need them. Satisfied my craving for watermelon, mashed potatoes and peas, and mint chocolate chip ice cream.
Plans for later this week? Possibly another trip to Paris, a haircut, and maybe a trip to the vet for the cat. I love not working. It's the not getting paid part I don't like, but I think I can handle it for a month.
