Current Status:
CLAIREINPARIS decided I needed a special treat... I have taken the day off and will go hiking in an area I don't know at all, crossing a little town which is like a 'little Venice'! And the sun is shining bright!

Hey there Claire

BTW - that is my favorite girls name. If I had had a daughter I would have named her Claire!

Thanks for keeping tabs on me. I'm cramming work into every moment today because I will be off for 2 days celebrating my 40th!!!!! anniversary. I hope I'll have many photo-worthy opportunities at the end of the week.

Hugs to you my French Spark Friend.

Thanks Claire about the cheese, gosh I never knew there was so many variety's. my brother is a cheese lover.Here in America they always heap the plates up at a lot of the restaurants,then you have to take half of it home for the next day for lunch. I went out for a fish dinner at a nice restaurant, When they bought my plate to me I though gosh it looks like a whale the fish was so big it hung over from head to tale way over the plate !!! Mom says what am I going to do with all this!! Every inch of that plate was heaping,then they always ask for dessert ,but we a lot of times decline. every thing is always super sized no wonder we are a nation of obesity!!!
Have a great week
Judy

Thanks for the blog comment. My back is feeling a lot better today, Muscle relaxers and rest are a big help! You are very correct about falling. If I were to have gone to the ground, I don't know if I would have been able to get back on my feet again. That's why as soon as I felt it go I aimed for the car! Much easier to stand back when your legs are still under neath you!

Oh, Claire, I am so sorry you are going through such a terrible time for your mother. This should be a time of sweet memories, even though hers are slipping away. I will be praying that you find a place where she can feel loved and cherished by the staff as much as you love and cherish her. Such a place DOES exist.
