I don't have much to say about my week. Life has been so bleak here in the US that I hope you will forgive me but I'm leaving to spend a month in Paris and I'm heading out early. Today, in fact.
What do I plan to do during my month (plus possibly a few extra weeks) in Paris?
I broke down and bought a lifetime subscription to all languages (24 to choose from) at Rosetta Stone this week, and I've been working on my French. I'm also listening to Learn French with Paul Noble (on Hoopla). I've enjoyed using both Rosetta Stone and Learn French with Paul Noble in the past.
I have several French cookbooks here, and I'm already working on a pork loin from one of them for dinner tonight.
I've been drawing every day for a month or so. I plan to put a French spin on my drawings.
WATCH FRENCH MOVIES
I hope to check out some French movies from my library. I have access to Kanopy through my library also, and there are at least three classic French movies on Kanopy that I have never seen.
LISTEN TO FRENCH MUSIC
Ah, French music. Perfect for daily yoga, I think.
PUT TOGETHER A FRENCH JIGSAW PUZZLE
Jigsaw puzzles have been a comfort during my homestay of late. How about a French jigsaw puzzle?
GOING THROUGH MY PHOTOS FROM MY TRIP TO PARIS LAST WINTER
Looking through Paris photos is wonderfully uplifting. Visiting Paris last winter was a happy time. Before all of this.
My favorite part of Paris in July is always reading books set in France. What books have I requested? Nonfiction, including The Whole Fromage; The Age of Comfort; Bonjour, Happiness; The Seven Ages of Paris; Vanished Smile. Children's books, including Zarafa, the Giraffe Who Walked to the King; Paris-Chien; King Louie's Shoes; A Dash of Magic. A graphic novel called Pablo. Cookbooks, including Barefoot in Paris. Adult fiction including French Pastry Murder; French Exit; The Chocolate Touch.
Come along with me, if you'd like.
I'm not terribly sure I'm ever coming back home.
It's lovely here in Paris.
