Typical weekend

Our weekend was quite low key. Friday evening we went to our country home. We hadn’t been in a while and needed to make sure that everything was OK. No branches down, heat still working, no broken pipes. Phew. Everything was fine ! Spring is just around the corner… first flowers are up. My husband made a wonderful fire Friday evening, very cozy.

Saturday : cooking, exercising, rearranging 

We woke up on Saturday and it was raining hard, so we decided to come back to Paris early. Went and bought new pots & pans, started arranging the kitchen, and I went to the gym to do some weights. I was thrilled to be able to exercise, as I hadn’t been able to during the week. Our oven was working so I made some veggies and we grilled steak. I also had a major craving for hard cheese. Mimolette & emmental for me, Maroilles for the family.

Sunday : major energy due to spring like weather.

It was in the fifties. I immediately felt like running. And it felt good, so I just kept going. Over 10km, very little knee or foot pain. But I did not want to push it, so I stopped after an hour or so.

Any free time I had was spent setting up my kitchen. I spent literally all day rearranging my cupboards and closets, going through my pots, pans & utensils, bought some new plates. And once it was set up I couldn’t wait to use it. Made a huge batch of protein pancakes. Great new recipe I found.

    Sounds like a great run! What are some of your favorite places to run in Paris?

    Wish it was in the 50s here! Going down to the single digits again here. Can’t wait to see flowers popping up!

      I always run in the Vincennes forest there are miles of trails and always tons of people.
