this is the view from my kitchen balcony
looking down the little alley.
steve and i love to sit
out there at night.
it's hard not to creep on our neighbors!
this is the view (looking left) from my family
room balcony. the restaurant with the black awning
Les Tablettes is supposed to be a great place.
looking forward to going there!
this is the view (looking right)
from the same balcony.
Ozio is an Italian place
that we have yet to try too!
the children catch the school
bus at the top of the hill..
Victor Hugo Place...see the fountain?
around the circle there are numerous
restaurants, little markets, shopping, metro.
it's a very busy circle..and so fun
to sit at a cafe and people watch.
a peek into stephen's room.
stephen's room is waaaay down at the end
of the flat. he likes it because he can get away from
all the noisy little kids.
early last week our landlord came over.
i asked him a million questions about the flat..
(his english is very good)
the apartment was built in 1912 and
our landlord and his wife raised
4 children in this apartment.
stephen's room was the original kitchen.
so if stephen feels the need to cook something...
you can bet i'd post a picture if that happened.
griff and i shopping yesterday
(and back on instagram now that we have new phones!)
i haven't done any baking here yet.
i can't find baking powder, baking soda
or american measuring spoons/cups.
so i thought i'd buy a packaged mix
i found in the very small american section
of my grocery store.
this box cost 7 euro.
the nut and olive bar at my local
i did find cornstarch!
so i was able to make beef and broccoli stir fry
(i had plain brown rice and roasted broccoli..
still going strong on the cleanse!)
we found a cute toy store close buy.
i bought griffy some play dough.
and while he played,
i was able to sit out on my balcony
and enjoy the sun.
i love life in paris!
