And We're Off Again

There is so much happening everyday I'm finding it very difficult to keep up with blogging! My husband and I have started our French immersion lessons. We spend six hours everyday this week with our teachers. We take a week off and go on a couple of business trips (Vienna and London) then back for another week of French immersion lessons. If we actually get to where we can mostly speak in French...we get to spend a week at a chateau in Normandy where there will only be French spoken. I've seen a photo of the chateau...it's quite an incentive! 

But in the meantime...here are some great photos...most taken by Erin, one of my last visitors. Here's a look at our trip to the market that is a block away from our apartment.


See the Eiffel Tower in the distance...here's one side of the market.


An entire booth devoted to mushrooms, garlic, shallots, onions...


and more mushrooms.


Blossoms...a single,  gigantic orchid.


Bunches of flowers.




Incredible produce.


Look at these tomatoes...ribbed!



I had so much fun sharing my world...here I am with my BFF, Sandy.


Like olives? Got a few choices.


I don't eat things from the water but you can find plenty at the market.

I bet you will learn French before you know it - you are going about it the right way I think - after all if you will be there for 5 years you really need to be able to converse! I'm not surprised you are not having a lot of time for blogging - so many new experiences but I so enjoy hearing it all so please don't stop :)

Holy smokes, six hours a day!?!?! that certainly qualifies for immersion, maybe even drowning. LOL!! I hope you make it so you can get your trip to the chateau. I love the pictures of the markets. It's hard to imagine being able to shop at an outdoor market in January.

Those who love to create will find sewing a worthwhile hobby to pursue. You can work with items as simple as cross stitch designs, or even make your own clothing. The type of sewing supplies that you will need depend on the area of sewing that you intend to pursue.
