Slow, Easy Paris Tuesday
You may have noticed that I didn’t blog yesterday… quite under the weather with horrible vertigo and nausea when I got up. It slowly went away throughout the day, and we were able to walk around a bit in an area around the BHV (the large department store in the Marais) referred to as Beaubourg. I had the same vertigo issue this morning (ugh) and have decided that the earplugs I’ve been wearing have affected my ears and equilibrium so no more of that!
I was actually purse shopping and Bernie was oh so patient with me. Finally found something that wasn’t 250+ euros! We’ll take you along on our stroll through the area.
I have finally been able to use some of my spring/summer wardrobe.
We are getting excited about welcoming my daughter and grandson on Friday!
Sorry the photos are so out of order. I continue to struggle with a very inadequate server. Other than that, we are really enjoying our petit apartment and the location. SO good to be back in the area we love. Today is my absolute favorite…LAUNDRY.

Wonderful day of wandering and window gazing. I see you are out of your boot and into cute sandals. Yea! While you were at the Église Saint-Merry did you notice whether the work on the Fontaine Stravinsky has been finished? It has always been one of our favorite places to visit.

It’s still a total and complete mess. I don’t know why it’s taking so long!

I am so sorry that you have had to deal with vertigo. Awful! I hope removing the earplugs does the trick!
Love the beaded purses and the pinks. The dog was certainly enjoying his afternoon more than his companion. Did you find a purse?
Thanks for the stroll!

Yes, I did. It was 39 euros which is more my norm. Not much into designer stuff. My money does to Paris!

Much empathy about the vertigo, with which I sometimes suffer myself! Glad it didn’t completely ruin another day. The purses remind me of things my grandmothers carried when they were young.

I’m happy to hear you may have discovered the cause of your vertigo and perhaps nausea. Your pictures today were both intriguing, heartwarming, and very enjoyable. A little of this a little of that.

Vertigo is the worst – hope you’ve discovered the cause and it won’t come back. I did miss you yesterday and wondered what happened, because you are so faithful in writing every day. I loved the window with the pink outfits, especially the pink jean jacket. But are the French wearing pink? Last year the color was green in all shades. The French stick to their neutrals, with a splash of color in a scarf, purse, etc. No one in your pictures is wearing pink. There’s an assignment for you! look for pink on the streets. haha

I will watch for pink, but the fashion is really no more in Paris. At least not along the streets we travel. Years ago, it was such fun to sit at a sidewalk cafe and watch the elegant fashion pass by.

Hope your vertigo is gone. Great pics!

Bummer about vertigo. I’ve never had that joy, but just a few seconds of dizzy is miserable.
I’ve been dealing with my first ever joy of poison ivy, and it’s been a doozy. Finally broke down and got professional help yesterday. Proof. Yard work is detrimental to my health. Hoping the evidence starts leaving today.

Sorry to hear that! Vertigo is better!

Hope the vertigo continues to improve. Fun weekend ahead for u guys!

Yes, Natalie arrives Friday mid-day and then we will be hauling it. Eating my Wheaties to get ready. I texted Andrew (never heard back) that you all should hop a plane and come over! Love to all.
