(This is the view from my window, into my building’s courtyard.)
It’s been a very rainy week in Paris, and though the forecast is sometimes subject to change, it looks like there may be rain for another week.
I stayed in most of the day. But then, in the afternoon, there was a break in the rain – the sun came out, and the sky was even a little bit blue behind the big, whispy clouds. So I decided to take advantage of an opportunity to walk around without getting soaked. I went for a walk.
I listened to my iPod, and took Boulevard Haussmann and kept walking straight, all the way to Strasbourg Saint-Denis. About 3 kilometers, walking in the sunshine. It was nice (except for walking with a little limp because of some horrible blisters I got last weekend). When I got to Strasbourg Saint-Denis, I hopped in the metro and took it back home, reading my book on the way.
Even though a rainy day is perfect for staying inside and getting things done, I don’t know…I just don’t feel very motivated to do anything except relax. This morning, however, I was very productive and cleaned things up a little bit around the apartment.
I have some more ideas on things to tell you guys, to write about, but so far they’re still ideas. Here’s hoping for more motivation tomorrow, and I leave you with a song I to which was recently introduced by Peter, via Kate’s musical taste. I really enjoy it, and just realized I was humming it. So I took that as a sign that I should pass it along.
