I have been too busy, too lazy and probably too hot to post the week before last. My good friends from Norwich were here for a week and their stay started with a very cold day (12°c) to go on with the beginning of a heat wave that lasted until yesterday.
I must say that Parisians are neither used to snow in the winter or extreme heat in the summer. At least not in a lasting way. So we have trouble adjusting 😦
Anyway, I’m glad to say that in spite of the heat, and with the exception of one day when I was just too tired to do much except for napping on my sofa, being the perfect couch potato, I was pretty faithful to my cardio exercise and my steps.
So here go the two weeks from Monday June 21st to Sunday, July 4th, with a belated Happy 4th of July to our American members 🙂
