Oct. 13, Sunday: Looking for grocery stores and finding more delights.

When I woke up on Sunday morning, Oct. 13, I discovered that I really needed a sloooowwww morning for a change. This energizer bunny was losing steam. I decided not to go to La Lorraine to blog, and now I am somewhat behind, but not too much. On Sunday I woke at 7:15, I now

Oct. 12, Saturday: Castle Hill again, Cemetery, Old City, Garibaldi Place, Square Head, Atelier 5.

Today, Saturday Oct. 12, had a mind of its own. The first part of my plan for the day went as scheduled: up at 7:15, coffee/apple/yogurt, then out the door by 8:30. I was at Starbucks at Nicetoile shortly after it opened and worked on my blog post for Friday from 9:15 to 11:30, eating

Oct. 11, Friday: La Lorraine, Matisse, Chagall, and long walk on the Promenade.

On Friday, Oct. 11, I was up at 7:15 and at La Lorraine at 9:00 for 2 cafe cremes and a croissant. I finished the blog post for Thursday and published it. I may have already said this in that post! No time to check myself, I just have to soldier on with this. I

Oct. 10, Thursday: Workshop Logistics: testing 1…2…3.

I accomplished a major feat today (not feet!) – I figured out how to take the bus to the villa and I did a test run. Now I know where the villa is, and I also checked out a restaurant near it. I also got a bus map and some bus schedules. Now that piece

Oct. 9, Wednesday: Photo for Mom & Getting Down To Business.

There is only one photo in this blog post for Wednesday, Oct. 9, and I took the photo several days ago and have just now found the perfect post to put it in – all by itself, so it won’t get lost in the hurley burley of my other adventures. And this photo is specifically

Oct. 8, Tuesday: Starbucks, Nice Etoile, Contemporary Art Museum, Place Garibaldi, Making Art

It is Wednesday morning at 10:20 a.m. and I just finished and published the blog post for Monday – phew! What a struggle! I’m going to stay at my Starbucks post just a little while longer and begin my post for yesterday, Tuesday.   Tuesday morning I came here to Starbucks in the Nice Etoile

Oct. 7, Monday: Pharmacy, La Lorraine, Post Office, Art Supply Stores, Castle Hill, Haagen-Dazs, Making Art

First, before telling you about Monday, I will finish with Sunday. And I’ve included a couple of photos from Sunday evening. After finishing my blog post on Sunday around 4 p.m. I went wandering and now I’m not even sure where I went. Part of the time I was in the old city and that

Oct. 6, Sunday: First Full Day in Nice.

Actually, I will begin this blog post with Friday night, our last night in Bormes-les-Mimosas. S and T joined Cathy and I in a celebration and farewell dinner at a restaurant at the top of our hill called the Belle Vue. Unfortunately, the night was cold and there was a fierce wind blowing and rain

Oct. 4, Friday: Last Day in Bormes-les-Mimosas.

I probably don’t need to tell all of you that yesterday’s blog post was tongue-in-cheek. It began as a joke that Cathy played on me. After gardening yesterday I went into the shower and when I came out Cathy said, “I’ve prepared us an extra special lunch!” I believed her. Why not? We have been

Oct. 3, Thursday: Gardening & Lunch.

Sorry guys, nothing exciting for you today. We worked in the garden from 8 to 12, digging up bulbs, cleaning up bulbs, weeding and preparing beds, and replanting bulbs. Backbreaking and dirty, but very satisfying work. Cathy and I came home (hmmm…not my home much longer), cleaned up, and had a lovely lunch. Cathy and
