Tonight I needed a break from being too much in my head.  I am making a presentation tomorrow morning at Southwest Regional Association of School Librarians and I'm nervous!  I also am having a book signing at Barness & Noble from 2-4 tomorrow afternoon.  It's great!  All of it is just great!  But, I am not an out in front sort of person by nature and these things are just a bit taxing for me.  So, I retreated to Paris tonight.

On the way home from school (after being stopped by the longest train of all time not once, but twice in trying to get to my destination and then being kept from turning where I needed to by traffic backed up at that same train a third time!) I bought some new placemats with a bistro and bicycle motif, a couple new coffee mugs that say "l'amour" and a few groceries for my vegan French dinner for two.

I literally spent hours in the kitchen tonight to prepare French Onion Soup Tartines, Cucumber Gratin, and for dessert, Profiteroles (however you pronounce that).  It was all lovely good.  We ate late (for us) by the fireplace and listened to Jazz Radio's Paris Bistro station.  We capped off the evening with Audrey Hepburn and Humphrey Bogart in Sabrina

Romance is not dead.  No matter what they say.

And now, back to work!
