Running Away From Home!

Rick and I are running away from home for a little bit. We'll stop for a few days in Paris and see our friend Jerry, and enjoy a cafe and a musee or two!


Our Paris list includes Lumieres des Artistes, the Orangerie, perhaps Musee Luxembourg, Poilaine, Sennelier and a market or two. (I really want to go to Rue Mouffetard!)


Then on to London and a bit of England.


Our itinerary includes loads of London, Windsor, Oxford and Bath with a few side trips.


Lest evildoers think Lizzie is home alone and they want to rob me of way too many art supplies, books, CDs and out of style clothes, they're wrong! My wonderful house sitter Jan is staying with her during our time away. She is going to be so spoiled! (Lizzie, that is!) Jan stayed with Gypsy during his last days while we were traveling and kept him going long enough to welcome us home and be with us another couple of weeks. There is no one I would trust more with Lizzie.


I'm not going to be posting from the road apart from FB and Twitter, possibly, but I will be pre-scheduling an interview with author Richard Lassin, photos from our first fall visit to Southern Exposure and maybe one or two other things, so do check in and I'll be sure to read and hopefully reply to comments, if not then, as soon as I'm back.


I'll miss you all! And I know I'll have plenty to catch up on!

I'm sorry I won't be able to reply to comments or visit for a few weeks. I will be offline getting all sorts of great photos and inspiration for posts to come. But please do leave a comment if you like -- I read them all and they make me smile more than you know. We need all the smiles we can get!

What a fabulous itinerary. I am very impressed. I'm sure you're on your way by now, but if not, would you sneak me in your baggage? I don't take up much room. Can't wait to see photos from your new camera when you return.

You sure do know how to live with joy and adventure. Yes, Sennelier, such a beautiful store. Musée d'orsay, Rue Mouffetard...I love the 6th, and Rue St. Germain...and the 5th...and the 7th.

I hope you have a safe, wonderful, happy trip!

Isn't it great to have a cat sitter you can really trust? Our neighbors watch our cats when we go, and they get so much attention from all of the kids. Howard loves being brushed so much!
