    We’re following you day by day, and enjoying everything! Our kitchen is about the size of yours there, so we know how it can work. Here’s to another wonderful summer in Paris. Tell President Macron bonjour for us when you see him.

    As to the naps, Charles said, “You know how to live!” He naps daily, regardless of the day’s routine.😏

    Is this the same apartment we had the chance meeting with you? Bernie was just returning from market and we were checking out apartments? Sure miss Paris, so you blog helps feed our fix!

      Yes, I believe so. Just barely remember.

    You spend your first day in Paris cleaning chairs…OMG…did Bernie run out and wash the sidewalk first thing? How about those stairs…..

    As much as I love medium rare, that rare wad of meat looks awful! However, the arugula mix looks fabulous! Great pictures to start you off this year, and I’m totally with you on cleaning that chair! 👏

    Glad you’re settled so quickly. I remember taking a great nap in that chair, or is there another like it?

    How do I go back to yesterday’s blog post

    Hope today is another great day.

    Bernie, your picture of the houseboats is making me drool! A leisurely stroll would be so nice!
    Please give Richard a big hug for me….I have not seen him for some time now, but always depend on him
    to give my clients great tours in Paris.
