This post is for Sylvette. She is Maurice’s sister and she reads my blog, well mainly she looks at the photos as her English is about like my French. Anyway, the last time I saw her was at her house for a party on January 2nd where I ate and drank way too much. Why do I mix champagne and two kinds of wine and cognac? Don’t you think I would know better by now? Anyway, Sylvette said she wanted to see a photo of our apartment now that the renovation is finished.
This is a view of the living room which was once a bedroom. We finally got the book shelf up after agonizing over how difficult it would be. It turned out to be easy. We didn’t anchor it to the wall as advised but it seems very stable to me. Now I have to find some attractive things to put on the shelves. The ones in the middle top are meant for CD’s. I don’t have any here in Paris as I listen to the radio and our car is in Provence, my main CD listening place. It is nice to have the space for company now in our little apartment.
Here is my cat, Elliot, on the rug that cost more than I thought it did. I like it now that it is in place but man, it sheds more than my cat. Every day I can see little blue fuzz balls all over the place and blue hairs on the floor of my bathroom which is white. I guess it is going to do that for quite a while and, meanwhile, I vacuum just about every day-one of my least favorite things to do, right up there with ironing.
