bright day in gloomy weather

no joke, paris as been this gloomy for about 3 weeks!

but i took the velib' to an appointment anyway.  the air was cold, but i liked it and it's always so much fun on those bikes.  the trip to my destination, my seat wouldn't stay up.  then when i got it to stay, it ended up crooked.  on the way back home i ended up getting one with a messed up chain and it would pop every pump i gave.  i ended up spotting a flower shop right next to a velib' and direct metro station home.  i gave up the runny nose and cold fingers for some flowers and a metro home.

these really made my day.  when the clerk asked me if they were a gift, i said yes.  but i didn't say the gift was for me.


  1. That milk glass with the ornaments is $10. That first picture is so crazy looking! And those flowers are BEAUTIFUL!

  2. I love that you bought yourself a gift. I smiled inside when I read this. Missouri is just a gloomy so it is like you are home. I miss you very much. xoxo

  3. that is such an awesome picture of the eiffel tower. or part of it anyway.

  4. tu as raison de te faire plaisir avec des fleurs!! I love the photos in this post. A friend of mine took almost the same photo as yours of the Eifeel Tower. This weather we having is freaky: rain, rain, rain, sun, rain, rain, sun, rain....snow?
