Lights of Paris




I'm sitting here nursing a cold that mercilessly attacked me yesterday. I have been feeling lonely for Paris. Sometimes a place just gets under you skin. Most people living in the midwest right now would look at these pictures and think they look cold because it is winter here. I'm looking at these thinking they look inviting....because I have a fever :) I'd love to dunk my head in a bucket of cold water right now. But the lights and their reflections in the water are beautiful. One year I'll spend Christmas in Paris.

I am making some headway cleaning my workroom. I have about 30 books that I am taking to the library...no jewlery books. I'll probably go through those tomorrow to see if there are any that I'm ready to pass on. I'm also going to thin out my stock of beads. That will probably wait until next weekend.

I am probably the only member of my family who has not yet been to Paris. My younger sister, her husband and 2 children spent this Christmas in Paris. I can't wait to see her pictures. Someday I will get to see this magnificent city. Until then, I visit it through the pictures and narratives of my family members and friends like you!

Hope you feel better soon.

I'm sorry that you're sick sweetie. Just don't throw out all of your beads in a feverish spell of organization! I'm sending you 'get well' thoughts.
