This is the view out of the dining room (really the sewing room) window. The windows are more like doors - they open up completely. There is no screen and my husband is terrified that the cats will get out there and plummet to their doom.
A view down our narrow street. There is no place to pull over, so it's common for a driver to just stop, blocking the road. And then we get the honking. I can only imagine what a nightmare it was when our furniture was delivered.
Our big cats were delivered safely yesterday, healthy and relatively happy. I'm impressed with how quickly they've bounced back, although Howler has spend quite a bit of time going from room to room howling. Or maybe I should say meowing because it's not high volume. But it sure doesn't sound like a meow.
The little girls haven't been happy since their arrival. Pokey is hiding in the bedroom and Lily in the bathroom and they're both hissing at each other and the boys. Sigh. They'll be fine.
The loud floor noises are kind of freaking the cats out and it doesn't help that I was organizing and moving things around yesterday. Crashy bashy. Today the plan is to get out of the house and give them some quiet time.
Today, Tuesday, is a holiday. Labor Day. A lot of the local shops were closed yesterday, making a four-day holiday of it. We went to the Monoprix (a supermarket/department store, rather like Marks and Spencers) to buy groceries but left after seeing the lines that stretched to the back of the store. We went to Picard, which sells all manner of frozen food, and picked up some dinners there instead. At least this way we won't starve if everything is shut down today.
The sun is shining and today we're going to the Parc Monceau.
