    Another typical Paris day full of things you have to do and plenty of strolling to do the things you want to do. Wonderful.

    I saw lots of pink at the Provence markets. And Orange. We so enjoyed our brief visit with you!

    You managed to pack a great deal into laundry day. Your food photos were fabulous. I always enjoy the photos along your travel routes.

    The fish and quinoa dish– delish. (A poem for your morning.) Hope the vertigo lets you enjoy your daughter’s visit.

    What a life you’re living. It’s a joy to experience it with you. I can empathize with the vertigo, having experienced Charles’ misery with it. May it abate while Natalie visits.🙏🏻 Can’t wait to see all the plans for her and son.

    HA! we have pink in NYC too. First time I saw a lady all in pink, I had to look again. Black is usually the colour here… even in the summer we dont wear bright colours.. but obviously ( maybe ) that is changing! Vive la pink! ( not on me however… except maybe the lightest off while pink, thats pretty!)

    Just when I thought the plans were for Natalie and her son to go to Disney I read is a Normandy experience!

    Looking forward to read about it soon!

    As everyone else hope your vertigo goes away soon.

    Hi Linda. You may have BVPP which causes dizziness. Google it and you will find a couple of videos of head movement procedures you can try. I’ve had this and the head movements took care of it. You can also get anti-dizzy pills from the pharmacy. Good luck

      Yes, I had BVPP for an entire year about 10 years ago. Horrible. I got some medicine today from the pharmacy. Have to sleep sitting up. I truly think it has been aggravated by the earplugs.

    The French certainly dress with more color than Germans and Swiss. Once, back in the 70s, I was in a park, Gurten Kulm, on a mountain right by Bern, Switzerland. I was wearing dark burgundy slacks, stylish here at the time. The Swiss and Germans still wear dark grays, browns and black. I heard two Germans behind me, talking about me. The woman said “Was glaubst du, ist er Schweizer?” (What do you think, is he a Swiss?) The man replied “Nein, kein Schweitzer. Er ist französisch.” (No, he’s not Swiss. He’s French.”)

    Thanks for the pictures of Parisians in pink! I see there are a few brave souls, such as the woman wearing pink pants. When in Nice last winter, there were pink and orange combinations, that I liked. I bought a lightweight cotton scarf in pink and orange and am ready to wear it this summer, here in Chicago – before it gets too hot.
    True no one will notice what your daughter is wearing. But still important to always wear what makes you feel your best self.
