The eighth thing I learned again this year -- we love Paris!

Our Eiffel Tower is always up.
So far no snow like in the
picture, but snow will come.
Let the holidays begin!
(No we'll be working until the
the 22nd probably, but we can
dream -- right?)

The eighth thing I learned again this year is that Steven and I are in love with Paris.
We never took down the Eiffel Tower this year that sits on our front lawn. We just
refurbished the lights when they went out and people probably think that it’s a
Christmas tree, but no.

When we went to Paris for six days in August, it was the second time in less than a year.
We were warned that it would be hot. And we were told that our Parisian friends would not
be there. It was hot -- 40°C some days.  But our hotel room was air-conditioned and very pretty,
and at the hottest times of day we put a suitcase on our bed and watched the TV show we'd
been watching in Toronto on Steven's computer. We were super happy, and when the day
cooled down we'd head out, and then meet friends for dinner.

People who do videos about what to be aware of when you come to Paris say, don’t try to visit
all the museums. 
Just enjoy the city. But before we left, everyone was full of ideas of
where we must go. We would love to visit Giverny, 
and will another time, but we loved, just
sitting in cafés and watching Parisians (Yes, there were many Parisians in the city) conduct their lives.

We did visit the Musée D’Orsay, and the Orangerie, and enjoyed every minute in those museums.

Will we go back anytime soon? Yes! As soon as possible.

Have a loving your life day.
