Do you have a Fitbit? I’m impressed with your level of activity, though I have always thought that those who live in the city get a lot more exercise than those of us in the suburbs.
whew… I’m tired after traveling with you!
I’m tempted to count and compare my day to yours!
Somehow, it sounds more captivating to be running around in France 🙂
Very clever! Someday you will read this post and be very nostalgic for a day in France. From my time abroad (Austria) as a student, I miss the sound of trains and the taste of fresh bread.
That sounds like a well deserved PLOP! Happy Fri-yay!
Oh man! That’s a lot!! The thing about stairs is that they never seem to get easier, although I think they should with lots of practice ‘

I agree! I’ve lived at the top of a hill for almost a year now and climbing it still puts me out of breath every time!

The line spacing makes it look like steps
Love how your writing
has a math lesson in there
and a lesson about time
and a lesson about lists
and a lesson about different perspectives
we can take of our day
and the value of a well deserved plop
And people wonder why Europeans are a bit more ‘fit’ 😉
