The gallery shopping reminds me of a shopping center in Sydney Australia. It was all gold and dark wood just like those pictures. Oh, and it had a fancy chocolatier. We walked 7 miles shopping that day, so a little piece of real good chocolate was earned.

Love gelato! Less calories than ice cream, right?

Visit the Galerie Vivienne, the most luxurious and handsome of the Paris passages, the covered gallery shopping arcades dating from the early 19th century. With its mosaic flooring, period lamps, original glass roof, magnificent rotunda and Empire period decoration, this arcade is a great place to browse exclusive shops for clothes, shoes, jewelry and accessories. Lunch or enjoy afternoon tea inside the gallery at the quiet, chic and delicious A Priori-Thé.

We rode a carousel in St Thomas Virgin Islands in July. They also sold gelato there, so we had to have that as well!

I entered our local library's summer reading program. One of the prizes was a picnic basket. Unfortunately, I didn't win it. I might have to buy myself one. An old fashion picnic sounds like an adventure to me.

Wednesday - Walk the curved walkways of the centuries-old Park Monceau (the main entrance is on boulevard de Courcelles), and admire the white statues of writers and musicians and the lush display of flowers—from beds of seasonal flowers to rose bushes to venerable trees and rare specimens. This is a park enjoyed by local residents (many wealthy) where watching children in the playground and following the adults in partaking of a picnic lunch is experiencing Paris like a Parisian of a certain style and class.

Monday -- After you’ve shopped (perhaps better stated as visited) the chic boutiques and haute-couture emporiums of Faubourg-Saint-Honoré and avenue Montaigne, shop a bit off track at edgy clothing and designs shops on and around rue Poitou and rue Pastourelle.

I went to a little coffee/tea shop today. It has odd tables and chairs scattered around the room. I brought a book and enjoyed some tea & reading time.

Maybe this weekend I can find a place to enjoy some music in the park. emoticon

Thank you for the tour Laura!

Thursday -- Buy a newspaper, find a sidewalk café (most will do) order a coffee, tea, citron pressé, glass of wine, or whatever, and settle in for some serious people watching and occasional reading, like a vrai French woman. If you want to add the Jean-Paul Sartre and Simone de Beauvoir legend to the experience, head for the famous Café de Flore. Enjoy a drink on the street level, but ask for a table in the upstairs dining room if you want to order a decent, simple meal among regulars

I agree Brenda I love looking through them also but my house is so small I had to let things go as I was feeling weighed down by the clutter.

Love, love, love to read so Wednesday's tour will be so much fun for me.

Wednesday -- For the literary minded, visit two favorite little spots on the Right Bank: Maison de Balzac, which is a museum displaying not only his manuscripts and first editions but also paintings and drawings of his family and friends, and Musée de la Vie Romantique devoted to George Sand (famous not only as a writer but for her romantic liaison with Chopin).

Then I'm grabbing you and all my "girls" from the FSC. I know it couldn't be helped, but I still wish I could have done the Disney trip. It is so much fun when the first steppers get together. I'm glad that Beverly and I got to hook up with Randy in Kansas City.

I still don't know why Dee and I haven't tried to get together - we are not that far away from each other.

Now that I'm back to earning a decent paycheck again, I'm hoping that we can take some type of vacation next year. Besides camping, I haven't had a good vacation in years.

Thursday -- Walk from rue de Rivoli on the Right Bank through the Cour Carré du Louvre and out onto the Pont des Arts and admire L’Institut de France (a favorite Parisian building with its gold dome) on the Left Bank. Continue up the rue de Seine for some serious gallery hopping.

Too cool Dee. I'm always checking out new types of produce when my store has them. Have never seen one of those. Weirdest melon I had was a lemondrop. Looks like a cantaloupe but has a distinct lemon flavor to it.

I love all of the art and always wished I could be that talented. I can't draw a straight line with a ruler

Our town has a Friday Fest in the downtown area with musicians, fire throwers (kind of like a baton with flames) face painting, lady dressed as fairy that does tricks, etc. and the area is known for its murals on the buildings and an alley called Art Alley that is full of beautiful murals with plenty of bars and breweries and restaurants. Don't go too much as I am not a fan of crowds and it gets very crowded. Only go if several of our couple friends want to go down there.

But in Paris I will withstand the crowds and enjoy the fun.

Tuesday -- After visiting the Cluny Museum, officially the Musée National du Moyen Âge (the National Museum of the Middle Ages) with its medieval architecture and artifacts and tapestry collection, which includes La Dame à la Licorne (The Lady and the Unicorn), pause across the street in the Square Paul Painlevé, a historic tiny garden square in the Latin Quarter.



Wednesday -- Enjoy street artists’ performances, "artistes de rue," in front of Centre Pompidou or on the Pont St. Louis behind Notre Dame, where there will be jugglers, musicians, fire eaters and lots of laughs.

I'm not a big a seafood eater, but when in Paris I'd be willing to try new foods.

The fruit of a Santa Claus Melon is very white. It's tender and juicy and sweet. My local store only has them once a year so I was thrilled to find one.

Monday -- Enjoy the towering plateau de fruits de mer, seafood platter, at Le Procope, one of Paris’ most historic restaurants—with 18th and 19th-century décor and busts of Voltaire and others who dined there—that always gives somewhat touristy restaurants a good name

I'd love to shop at that beautiful farmer's market. Look at all the choices!!

I had spaghetti squash for the first time. It was delicious. I also bought a Santa Claus melon. The fruit is white. My husband laughed at the name and kept going ho-ho-ho.

Wednesday -- Pick up freshly baked croissants at Carton (6 rue de Buci, 6th arr.) any morning except Monday. The best. And you can always sit down at one of the several near-by cafés for a grand crème (large coffee with steamed milk) with a bite of your croissant.

Monday -- Walk along the Seine from the Pont Neuf past the timeless bouquinistes with their used books and magazines to Ile St-Louis, the smaller of the two islands in the Seine. Perhaps treat yourself to an ice cream on the island at Berthillon, long celebrated by Parisians and visitors.

I think Wendi has her own version of Place Dauphine. She said her place on the lake is peaceful and quiet and beautiful. Lucky lady.

I always want to start the habit of going for an after dinner stroll with my husband, but somehow it never happens.

Here's a video of Place Dauphine so we can imagine ourselves strolling there.

Would love a romantic walk but I would be doing it alone emoticon My husband never goes for walks with me.

Guess I will take the walk of silence.

A quiet, romantic walk sounds good there!

Dee - My nails were pink and sparkling during our cruise! My toes still are, and I repainted my fingernails with my bright flamingo pink! I might add the pink glitter back on, but for now I'm leaving them just pink.

Sounds like the perfect place for an afternoon le tour à pied (walk/stroll).

Happy Friday Parisians! We start our tour of Paris this weekend. Here is our first destination:

This weekend -- Visit Place Dauphine for the silence (except for the sounds of the birds), its beauty, history, and perhaps a quiet bistro meal in a tucked away eatery.




May we think of freedom, not as the right to do as we please, but as the opportunity to do what is right.

United we stand. Divided we fall.

Ahhh would love that journal Dee. I started a new planner in July and I just love it.

Polished my nails today. Had several break when doing a big lawn project so feel like starting from scratch in growing them out again. Can't get too long or I can't type.

My new journal has a pink high heel, sitting on top of 3 books (Paris; Beauty, Haute Couture) and pink flowers around the edges. Perfect for this month's challenge.

My Paris pleasure today was having a manicure with pink glitter polish. Tomorrow I'm going for a pedicure with two of my girlfriends. Ooh La La!

You can find daily pleasures around the city of Paris, especially as spring is arriving. While we may not actually be in Paris, let these pleasures inspire you to indulge in your own daily pleasures. Turn off the TV, get out of your routines and live the life of a true Parisian.
