There’s no rest for the wicked

To catch those who don’t already know, I’ll quickly recap my situation. When here two summers ago, I met Shmoe and we’ve been together ever since. I came to Paris last summer but due mostly to technological inconveniences ( I didn’t bring my laptop and no easy access to wifi), I didn’t blog. Whoever, this summer I have wifi and my lovely new iPad! Not perfect to write with but portable to take everywhere and easy!!

It’s lovely to be back in Paris. I have to say that this year, unlike last year, Ididn’t just miss Shmoe but this spring I started to miss Paris. I have become familiar with her and enjoy so much and appreciate those small things that make Paris so memorable.

One of the first things I did was head to the Marais for my L’As falafel. It was fabulous. I have been thinking about that falafel for ages! It was perfect, hot and crispy falafel with creamy and crunchy vegetables! With extra sauce piquante, of course!

Afterwards, I was wandering around, looking for a municipal park when I stumbled across this gem of a store. I was walking by and the glimmer of rainbow out of the corner of my eye, made me stop in my tracks. I wandered in and was entranced by the colours and textures. It’s a book binding shop with gorgeous book covers in every size and shape imaginable.

Theres also some stationary and other odds and sods but those book covers…I’m envisioning covering my plethora of books in tints and tones of a just a few hues. Hmmm….
