Well folks, after carting that cardboard creation across Northern Europe, I'm beat.
Thankfully it's Friday and I think, for the first time in I don't know how many weekends I am going to put my hand up and 'just say no'. I am going to strive for a work-free weekend. I know, I know, there will be repercussions come Monday. But, I need the break. And also, I'm thinking "when in Rome, do as the Romans do" or in this case, the Northern Europeans - the Amsterdammers (and Parisians)(not to mention Italians) seem to just disappear for weeks on end in August - they shut up their shops, they leave their work, they leave all their responsibilities and just declare vacation. It's something I find rather peculiar since these are two international cities but you know, whatever...
I will not be following suit and declaring vacation unfortunately as I have alot on and next week will be a killer, BUT, I think a work-free weekend is in order. What do you think?
Shall I don my summer dresses? Get out my straw hat? Put paper umbrellas in my ice tea and put my feet up?
I will still have to clean, sort, and tidy though as I have completely neglected my household duties over the last few weeks and the boat is unsightly, and barely livable.
Next week I want to tell you what I got up to in Paris each day I was there. I took lots of photos... some I will share here, some I will save for an upcoming project. I also bought something that I have been dying to show you, it's been so inspiring for me.
I wonder what you will be doing this weekend? Any plans? Whatever you get up to mes chers amis, have a beautiful weekend.
