Of Bread and ideas

I did not get enough sleep last night, 6 hours, I need at least 9. But never the less, my day started off well with a delicious bowl of peanut butter honey oatmeal and coffee with milk.


Oh yes, and what is that random piece of something on the table, a chocolate chip cookie, yes that was part of breakfast too.

After breakfast I went to my first training, my neighbor and landlord and friend, Eve. We did a half hour session in which we decided that her three training sessions a week are going to start being mostly Pilates in hopes of helping her chronic lower back pain. Next, a session in the 5th with Nancy. I rode Apache there. She gets parked many places in Paris, but Nancy`s is her favorite. It`s like she is is a nature sanctuary.

She has even adapted her camoflage to this spot. She happily waits outside here, listening to the birds singing while I train Nancy.


Next I went home and waited for Katie to come over for lunch. We did the shopping together at Monoprix and stopped at a fairly good bakery close to chez moi to pick up a tradition, the best kind of baguette.

We had chicken stir fry for lunch, Michael had tofu stir fry. It wasn`t that great, but was pretty.

Paris, Du pain et des idées.

One of the women working there actually arranged the bread in a special way before I took pictures of it.

We walked up the canal Saint Martin, one of the hippest areas in Paris. It was so pretty. A great place to picnic in warm weather.

Next Katie and I walked up the canal to go to my new French school so I could register for classes. It was a beautiful walk. We looked at one of my favorite boulangeries in
