Lux Redux

The Sunday after Thanksgiving was so glorious that I packed a little snack and a book and jumped on the bus for Luxembourg Gardens, which was teeming with activity.  The landscape was bobbing with joggers (who presumably had not even indulged in Thanksgiving gluttony) , and there were plenty of people like me, who preferred to stroll, picnic, read, and people watch.  The day turned out to be a tad chillier than I had anticipated, and after just one chapter of my book I was forced to get moving again, following the sun.  It was a delightful way to end two weeks of entertaining, cooking, eating, and drinking.  I was able to just be still, and to muse about how fortunate I am to have such good family and good friends, and to be living in this amazing city that still makes me feel like a new bride when I walk around in it.

On my way out I paused to admire the sun on the bee boxes located near an entrance to the park.  There has been a beekeeping school here teaching apiculture since 1856!  Apparently the bees here are very healthy and take care of pollinating the many fruit trees in the park.  If I were a bee, I would live here.  For sure.

Au revoir, mes amis!  I hope you enjoyed your little walk in the park as much as I did.
