Cruising the Seine

it's been a long week.
and it's just going to 
get busier.
steve and i went over
our calendar today..
happy to get that done.
we just booked our
october vacation!
can't believe we are already
looking ahead that far.

this past week we were all sick.
we spent a lot of time at home.
stephen was in greece
on his senior trip all week.
i didn't sleep much this past week.
he's home
and had a great time.

while he was flying into paris last night..
steve and i went on a cocktail cruise
along the seine put on 
by the kids school.
we were having a great time..
until i ate something that had pine nuts in it.

i'm not going to go into
the gory details..
but basically 
the boat sped up
to get back to the dock 
to meet the ambulance 
that was waiting for me.

it was a long night.
and not just for me.
steve rode in the ambulance
with me and when i left the hospital
he went to grab a cab to take him back
to the car at the dock.
do you think he could find a cab
in this city?
he ended up walking for miles
back to the dock to get the car.

here's to a healthier week ahead!

and please don't email me or comment about
how i need to carry an epi-pen.
i do.
i just forgot last night.


  1. i pity the fool who put pine nuts in your fancy french hors d'oeuvres. just sayin.
    i'm glad you snapped that gorgeous photo beforehand.

  2. Oh my! That is too bad. It is such a great shot captured with the eiffel tower in the background. Hope you are feeling better and cheers to a better week ahead.
    P.S. I went to Persephone (lovely store) and I am anxious to read Someone at a Distance (Dorothy Whipple) but I have to get through Sense and Sensibility (Jane Austen) first.

  3. Oh no..... so sorry that the nuts snuck up on you. You sure got a gorgeous picture before the ambulance. :) Hope it's a great week, tara
