Right now, at this moment in time, I am so content. I made some New Orleans French Bread and it's pretty wonderful.
I have been to the museum again today, but alas, when I climbed the crumbling steps to the top of the hill, I discovered that it is closed on Saturdays. So I sat on the top step and drew some of the surrounding architecture and the door bell, which was ornate and almost blackened with deep rust.
I made this dress, it is scaly and violet and I really can't wear it without coloured stockings!
I wore it to the Yves Saint Laurent show at the Musee Des Beaux Arts and I had a comment about how it was reminiscent of a scale dress from YSL in the 60s. I'd never thought about that before, but I just nodded enthusiastically and said "Ah oui!".
I received a parcel last night, when I came home to get an umbrella before going to a lovely party at Jenni and Emilia's house. It is a tiny deck of cards from Grace and Dinah! Thank you! (if you are still reading)
I am going to another party tonight, but home to bed early, as last night I didn't get to sleep until 6 am! But I had a wonderful walk home along Avenue des Pins, The entire length of the road is dotted with dilapidated mansions and lush greenery. Oh my goodness.
I can't believe I am here.
I promise to make a post about the fantastic colours- no wonder they call it Fall here, I now realise I've never experienced a true Autumn.
