Bonjour, mes amis! Life continues to fly by at an alarming clip here in Paris. This week I am looking forward to having my good friend from college and three of her kids (one of whom is my precious god son) visit from Raleigh, North Carolina. Soon after they leave, my brother and his wife arrive from Dallas, and within days our good friends are coming from London to complete our Thanksgiving table. It’s always fun to have new life in the apartment! Especially when they bring me treats from home. Which they will. If they ever want to be invited back.
It seems like a long time ago that I spent a lovely day with a good friend. We started with an art exhibition at the Musee du Luxembourg, which I always love because it is small and sits right in the Luxembourg Gardens. The exhibition was called, in English, “The Modern Art Club: Avant-Garde Collectors in Le Havre”. The collection belonged to art collectors and artists in Le Havre in the early 1900’s. It was wonderful. Here is the link if you want to read more about it. A few of my favorites were:
We worked up quite an appetite looking at all that art, so we walked from Le Jardin du Luxembourg to one of my favorite restaurants, Les Papilles. It didn’t disappoint.
Fortunately, we had time for a nice long stroll after that feeding frenzy.
And then I went home and put my feet up and thought about how I could get out of fixing dinner. I think I was still full.
Forgive me if my posts become a bit erratic for the next few weeks. I should be gathering some good material for you, but it may take me awhile to get it in the mind-blowing form to which you have all become accustomed. But I will be back. Some day.
And that’s a threat, not a promise.
Have a good week, my friends!
