One Month

In one month I'll be in Paris with my mom and my sister. It's coming so quickly. I'm anticipating a very different trip than the one my husband and I took two years ago. Fun, but different. We're planning on a visit to the Eiffel Tower...
and one day at Versailles (this is Le Petit Trianon). Then we're taking the train to Frankfurt to go on a bus tour of Germany, Austria and Switzerland. We're getting excited. But...
this is the list of things I need to accomplish before then. This is the reason for the spotty blogging lately. And no sewing or craft projects to show. I miss doing that stuff, but my focus is completely on finishing these two courses before the end of May. I wrote one final for an English course last week, so I am making progress.

I'm writing this blog post as a break from doing the rough draft of the first essay - I don't think or write as fast in French as I do in English.

Now...back to work


  1. The list is long, but it sounds like such a fun and exciting time.

  2. How exciting ! My youngest daughter is living in the Paris now .

  3. Lori,
    How exciting for you! Have a great time and tell us all about it when you return and have a safe journey.

  4. Tu vas à Paris ??? quelle bonne idée !
    Combien de temps restes tu ?
    Si tu as du temps libre, je serais contente de te voir !

    gros bisous

  5. Hello,

    I can imagine how excited you are about this fabulous trip!
    Please, take lots of photos to show us what you saw!

  6. Hi Lorrie,

    I am so excited for you! Do you think I could tuck away in your luggage? I'm small, don't take up much room at all.

    If you have a chance, take a look at my treasure book post. The market book may come in handy!


  7. So much for me to catch up on here Lorrie. Cherry trees all over the world look glorious just now.

    Loved your post on blogging, exactly my sentiments and I was honoured to see me blog linked there.

    I do hope you have a wondrful time in Paris. Maybe next time you will be in London.

  On the first Sunday of September, we locked the door and drove to the ferry, towing our travel trailer behind us. Once across the Strait, ...
