A sad story with a happy ending! Me in 2007 looking like my old self, and the following years...
went for a hike near Versailles today! I didn't see the castle, but it was still beautiful! I'll post a blog about it tomorrow. Have a great week, dear Sparkfriends!
is extremely moved by all your kind notes. Thank you so much. Feeling quite shaken today and just very sad for all the victims and for my beautiful city...
In memory of all the victims of 13 November. (By French artist Jean Jullien: www.jeanjullien.com)
was very moved last night, as I walked near the area where the attacks took place on Friday, to see so many Parisians eating outside. Good for you, Parisians! (Now tourists, please come back!!!)
is delighted my beloved 'teddy bear' vintage coat fits again! Great NSV!
had a very nice short hike today, I wasn't feeling my usual self. Feeling better tonight! Have a great week dear Sparkfriends!
had a wonderful 21K (13 miles) hike today! Woohoo, I did it! Over 20K!
had a good day today, phew! I also want to share that one of my coats now fit! Woohoo! I really liked that one!
had a wonderful 19K hike today! I'll post a blog about it tomorrow, I am off to bed now... I hope you are all having a great Sunday!

SPARKFRAN514 shared this quote with me and I loved it!
had such a gorgeous autumn hike today!
New jeans, new fleece, and also new lipstick!
finally found the courage to knock on the door of the apartment where my mother used to live many years ago in Algiers... The lady let me in and I could take pictures of the view!
was invited for lunch today by two lovely Vietnamese nuns from my class... We had such a great time! I will really miss my fellow students and teacher when I am back in France...
was visiting an old building yesterday with a friend when a lady who lived there opened her door and invited us in for traditional mint tea with cakes... We had an unforgettable time!
was so glad one of my new friends here lent me an outfit for the engagement party I got invited to! Not my style at all but trousers/pants wouldn't have been appropriate, everybody had dressed up!
is feeling good after spending the afternoon at the hairdresser! :-)
So special to meet HOLLYM48 at last and to go on a hike together (07/31/15)
A lovely time with HOLLYM48 on 31st July... The weather was perfect for our hike!
had a fantastic evening with HOLLYM48 and her DH last night. Now looking forward to our hike tomorrow!
This is so awful I want to hide! But let's focus on the NOW... I am so grateful for the weight lost!

enjoyed the 'BBQ and fun' at the nursing home. My mother wore a hat and was peaceful and usually smiling (almost impossible to take a picture nowadays though, she doesn't know where to look...)
is home, after a fantastic time sightseeing in Ethiopia! (Blog coming later this week!)

A beautiful roadside shrine I discovered in Picardie at Easter... so appropriate!
