Sept. 7: Traveling from Lyon to Bormes les Mimosas

I woke up this morning, Saturday, at 7:45, dressed, went to Les 3 Brioches and bought a quiche and a cup of sliced strawberries, went to Starbucks and got my grande Cafe Americano, and brought all of that back to my hotel room. I pulled a chair up to the open window, put my feet

Lyon: Day Five: Sept. 6.

This day, Friday, began with Starbucks, of course, and I took my grande Cafe Americano back to my hotel room to drink while creating my post about what I did on Thursday. The text was fairly long, but I only had a few photos, so I was finished and out the door by 10:30 a.m.

Lyon: Day Four: Sept. 5

This will be a short post today. Much shorter than Day Three’s post, which I think is the longest I’ve ever done. And you should see all the photos I left out. Wednesday was, indeed, an ambitious day. Thursday was a different kind of day. Starbuck’s first, of course, and they got my name right

Lyon: Day Three, Sept. 4.

Busy day and lots of photos. Began at Starbucks around 8:15 (they open at 7:30 on weekdays, 8 on Saturday (I think they are closed on Sunday, but I’m not sure – I’m leaving Saturday morning, so I haven’t thought any further than that). There was almost no one there. I am realizing that nothing

Lyon: Day Two, Sept. 3.

First…before I launch into day 2 in Lyon…take a look at the new set of feet in our Infamous Hall of Feet! And, Nice students, take note – Diane has begun her workshop project. You may think I’m on vacation, but I am not – hear my whip cracking? – get to work you lazy

Lyon, Day One: Sept. 2.

Before I tell you about Monday, let me just add a note about Sunday night – mostly for myself, so I will remember what I did and when. I spent most of Sunday writing blog posts and packing up my suitcase. But at 5 Ken, Margaret and I went to have tea with Daniele, who

Some Words About Feet…Who Knew?

I didn’t think I would be posting again today, but I found out something this morning that I simply must tell you. Occupe-toi de tes pieds. Guess what that means. It means, “Mind your own feet!” Or, as we would say, “Mind your own business!” (As a young kid I remember saying, “Mind your own

Studio Work and Concert: Saturday, Aug. 31.

Saturday was a wee bit calmer than our usual. Sunny, warm, blue skies – the weather itself was an event. We stayed home all day and Margaret and I spent a lot of time working in the studio. I alternated between that and working on these blog posts. When I left the US for France

Friday, Aug. 30: Work Hard, Play Hard.

It seems that the theme of Friday was “how many things can we do in one day and how diverse can these things be?” We began the day by stacking a huge pile of firewood into the woodshed. Now there is a vacation activity that I don’t do very often! Once that was finished, Margaret

Thursday’s Adventure & 2nd Test Run

Our plan for Thursday was to take a trip to Vichy. But the weather had changed once again and it was a stunningly beautiful day – warm, blue skies with fluffy white clouds, and abundant sunshine – so we decided to stay at home in the morning, go to a little village called Suin for
