A big smile! Sept 2016
LOVED my first day in Armenia (can you tell?!)! Can't wait to go to the mountain villages tomorrow!
is actually paid to do this job!!! ;-) (But it WAS an exhausting day with 8 hours on fairly bad and mountainous roads...)
visited people at the border in a war zone, with their house walls full of bullets... As I was leaving, the owner, an old man, went to his garden to pick up roses for me... Unforgettable times...
had a wonderful hike yesterday for the 1st Nov holiday! I hope you'll enjoy reading my blog about it! :)
bought myself some flowers this weekend, just because... And I should do that more often! Have a beautiful Monday dear Sparkfriends!
accepted an offer on my apartment this morning! Now I really need to find a nice place to move to!!! Goodbye little appartment, I am glad I have a couple of months to say goodbye properly!
is 48 today and got the best birthday gift: my offer on the little house of my dreams (still in the same area 15 minutes away from Paris) was accepted and it looks like everything is OK now! Woohoo!
A perfect winter hike!
is having a lovely time in Christmassy London. I LOVE the decorations this year!
is back in Paris and just posted my first blog about my 'London Christmas'! I hope you'll enjoy it! Have a great week!
had such a great time at Sparkfriend LIZALOT's concert tonight... I can't wait for the next one in April! Thank you LIZALOT!!! And bravo again!!!
is cccccold in Paris today! But still went for my 1-hour walk at lunch time... Beautiful in the sun but awfully cold in the shade! Brrrr!
was grateful my back pain improved enough for me to be able to meet a friend for dinner... It was freezing in Paris but so beautiful! (Sorry, only had my phone with me for the picture!)
is feeling great after a beautiful hike in the woods today! Blog coming soon! :)
came back all refreshed and happy after my hike today! Blog coming soon! :)
is delighted to see clear signs of spring... Oh how I love this time of the year!
is very sad. My mother died this morning.
I am slowly starting to feel more at home (moved last Thursday)!
Normandy with HOLLYM48!!! Some sightseeing and a very demanding hike (up and down the cliffs)!!!...
is hoping you'll enjoy my blog about Sparkfriend Holly's visit!!!
Moved into my new home! (Love the lilac from the garden!)
visited an ancient monastery at the end of a busy day of meetings tonight in Kiev, Ukraine. And yes, the scarf was compulsory! :)
had a lovely time with Sparkfriend NUOVAELLE in Athens last night! So precious to have Sparkfriends all over the world!
had a busy weekend! I found a car (yay! after 8 months without one!) and kept organising my new little house... What do you think of the entry? This is how it looks like tonight! :)
loves my little car! I so look forward to going on hikes again after the trips of the next few weeks (Brazil + Egypt)... I hope you are all well! Happy Tuesday!
made the most of a couple of hours that were unexpectedly free this morning by going to Iguaçu Falls with a colleague, just 20 miutes away from our hotel... Can you tell I had a fantastic time?
is hoping you will enjoy my blog about the amazing Iguaçu Falls (Brazil + Argentina)!
was delighted by my encounter with these smiling little girls in an old church in Cairo last night! Bright smiles to brighten my day! :)
enjoyed seeing the Pyramids again this morning with colleagues and friends before visiting some of our projects in Cairo.
is home but missing the warm smiles of Egypt like these 2 wonderful little boys at one of our children events!
could feel my heart melt as I looked at this picture from Egypt a colleague just sent me! Awwwww!
had a big surprise as I removed the wallpaper from a piece of furniture I bought for €60 in a thrift store... yes, it is an oil painting... Amazing!
is still here, although crazy busy with work + gardening!!! Look how my garden has improved already... :) I'll post a blog soon though, promise! Miss you all!!!
Estonia, June 2016

Wonderful memories of Landscape Arboretum (MN) and Sparkfriends, even though I love life in Paris!
We had such a beautiful picnic in the vineyard... missing HOLLYM48 and WILDASTER! (MN, May 2016)
