This is a pic from Monmartre. This church is St-Jean l'Evangeliste. It's beautiful, but hard to photograph properly. According to my guidebook, the church was built in 1904 and was "one of the first concrete buildings in France; despite its sinuous Art Nouveau curves, the bricks had to be added later to soothe offended locals."
Did I tell ya'all that my husband and I finished rewatching season 5 of the Sopranos and are now finally into Season 6, part 1? Not only that, but my sweetie has even agreed to watch an episode or two a night instead of only one episode every Sunday which was the previous arrangement. Woohoo. Of course we're still going to have to wait however long for part 2 to finally make it onto DVD. sigh.
I'm way behind on chores, what with obsessively reading Harry Potter (finished Order of the Phoenix this morning) and watching the Tour de France. Not at the same time, mind you. I need to run to the market and buy fruit (the French raspberries, strawberries and nectarines are incredible) as well as basic foodstuffs and a new mop, pick up dry cleaning, get my phone charged with minutes, etc. All made more complicated since I don't know exactly what hours the various shops are closed. Almost everything except the supermarket are closed for 2 to 3 hrs sometime in the afternoon. I better get going.
