If you follow my blog at all, you may have noticed my absence since I returned from vacation. When we first arrived home, I attributed my feelings to exhaustion from a very hectic itinerary on our cruise and then our weekend stay in London. The truth is that two days before we disembarked from the ship, my husband and I both became ill with what we thought was the simple beginnings of a cold. We persevered knowing that we had precious time to enjoy the sights of Paris and London and we didn't want to miss a thing.
Here it is 12 days later and I am still in bed. This is the first day I have felt there is light at the end of the tunnel. That and the fact my daughter is threatening to take me to the doctor if I am not better today (I have not been to the doctor for illness in maybe 30 years?) My husband is not far behind me either. Our symptoms are simple ones such as my cough that is incessant and never seems to leave my side or my bronchi either.
I have heard that cruise ships can carry gnarly illnesses, but this being our 5th cruise, I thought we were immune. Apparently not.
With unfinished projects laying about, I think it's time to get back to life as I know it albeit a little each day. I have not even returned to the shop to work on my space for fear of contaminating the whole place.
With all that said, I will just share a few pics I took in Paris. You all know how I love lettering and typography.
The sights of Paris did not disappoint me in the least. I had not visited there since I was 18 which was many moons ago (okay, decades) and it was even better than I remembered.
Would you believe every chocolate shop I passed by in Paris and London was closed? What's up with that? Maybe they heard I was coming and I would buy up all of their inventory.
Here's to good health and not taking it for granted. Had I been able to get my hands on some chocolate, maybe it would have boosted my immune system. I have heard it's full of antioxidants.
I'm not sure what the above picture says, but I believe it to be a legislative building of some type. Even it is incredibly beautiful.
Thanks for staying tuned in. I will be back in a jiff.
