"It's the berries!" Did you ever know anyone who actually used that expression? Me neither. But it popped into my head when posting this photo. For the past week it's been cool and fall-like. Suddenly, it's warm and sunny, like summer's last gasp. No wonder I have a migraine, with such abrupt temperature changes. For all you Under the Microscope fans, Rel and his wife Diane arrived safely in Paris yesterday. He phoned to say they are in a nice hotel in an interesting area and he'd already exhausted his camera's batteries, snapping photos of a youth rally/demonstration (luckily he has extra batteries). And David and I will be seeing them in person Wednesday night.
Speaking of my husband, he arrived from China this morning. Thankfully, he didn't buy any cheesy cheap souvenirs (other than for his office staff). And Elisa, my Italian friend from Spanish class in Seville, arrives this afternoon from Milan. She will be teaching Italian at a language school here. With the Rugby World Cup underway, she's having trouble finding accommodations, so she is our guest for awhile.
Hope you're all having a good weekend! Tonight after the chef's famous roast chicken, we'll be cheering on France as they play Namibia. A victory is crucial for France to remain in the Rugby World Cup competition. Allez les bleus!
