|This bird will never |
THIS time, only one bag didn't make it back from France (luckily not the one with the butter) - but that means no hairbrushes or makeup in the house (it will be a REALLY bad hair day for me today) as well as my house key got lost (second item of business this morning after picking up vehicles from car body shops). The most important thing that got lost is my supply of charcoal pills in my med kit I carry (that is in lost bag). REALLY wish I had those on the plane - can't anticipate every disaster with something in hand. One child decided to start being ill as soon as we hit Newfoundland and when the stewardesses handed me 25 barf bags and biohazard containers - I laughed at the overkill. By the time he used his last in the taxi on the way home... I wasn't laughing anymore. So third item of business - bread for the hungry sicky. Fourth item - delivering teen to internship. Oh and I just realized our toothbrushes are missing... Fifth item on list.
So it is with this harried morning I am anticipating (worst thing is not being able to start taking action here at 5am until stuff starts to open) that I think back to yesterday and this relaxing moment caught on film. The reasons you go on vacation!! This time we only visited two countries and then 'chevy chased' two more'. So those main locations were long and relaxed (a first for us). I actually got a lot of stitching in which again is a first for me during vacation since kids came along. I won't tell you what I was stitching - as it is a surprise - but this view was AMAZING.
My husband has three things he optimizes for - Food, photo quality views and location near great food and photo quality views. So this Paris location had it all and he quite outdid himself. I would tell you exactly where this secret rental location is - but I want to reserve it for the 3rd week in July for the next decade first! Terrace outside our bedroom overlooking the Seine River with a view of the Eiffel Tower, Pantheon, Louvre, and Arc de Triomphe. Whenever we weren't eating or on the hunt for more yummy food - I was sitting out here and stitching or gawking at the view.
Ahhhhh.... I will just try to stay in that happy place today as I rush around getting life rebooted...
