T Stands for........the time struggle.

We have been away for a few days and due to return to our caravan again tomorrow - we have decided to give it up at the end of the year and we are sad but have plans for more travelling opportunities!
This means a LOT to pack up, give away or throw away! I think we are going to be busy! The Wi-fi wasn't working well at the weekend so we got quite a lot done!

So...back to Paris..we decided to saunter in the sunshine to our favourite Parisienne restaurant - Les Patios in Place de Sorbonne


 Past Luxembourg Gardens...
 ..and the Pantheon..

 ...to here, with a lovely view, the fountains were working too!
I am joining Bleubeard and Elizabeth for T Stands for Tuesday - with  my Caesar salad, hubby's Salad Nicoise and water...
 ...and hubby's Cafe Gourmand which came with an extra spoon for me and while hubby had his Espresso I had a Cafe Creme. I think you will see why we always visit here when in Paris
 Afterwards we walked to the other side of the fountain and looked back at Patios

The back of the Sorbonne looks so beautiful - even with vehicles in front of it.

 As we walked to our next destination we walked past a talented street entertainer in front of the Fontaine St Michel....
...with the magnificent statue of St Michael!

I'm keeping it short this week, trying to make space here as well as preparing for a non messy crafting day next week ( a Christmas card marathon) and getting Hochanda samples for Crafty Individuals ready! 

I am still wondering what possessed me in deciding to take up two daily challenges this month but after a short crafting session this afternoon I felt much calmer so I will carry on!!!
My TIOT tin is my AEDM entry for today.

Thanks for looking, Chris

I admire people who are open to change and new opportunities. It sounds like fun :) These photos look like wonderful places to people-watch in lovely settings. That fruit looks good, and I'm always up for espresso :) The street musician has a rapt audience. Happy T Tuesday!

Oops. I guess I landed on the wrong post the 1st time. So I'll say happy T-day again!

You both love to travel so much that I bet letting go of the caravan - hard though it is - will make you feel lighter and more free to just pick up and go! This will be a tough holiday season I expect. Like you said, you'll carry on!!!

Your photos of Paris help make my point 😉

Best of luck! Eileen xx

More incredible photos. I loved the fountain, but my favorite today is the last photo of St. Michael. That is quite grand.

I realize these photos were from this summer, but has T lost weight, or was that an optical illusion. He needed all the extra calories in case he has lost weight. I'm also running far behind and have about 12 minutes before I'm out the door. Thanks for sharing your lovely photos of France and your drinks and incredible food with us for T this Tuesday.

Oh that sunshine would be very welcome this morning! What fabulous photos again from Paris. Good luck sorting the caravan - I know you will miss it but not the extra time for more trips!

Rita said...

Absolutely beautiful! (Looks so warm, too!)

Although it may not be easy giving up your caravan at first, I bet you'll eventually look back fondly and at the same time happy for the decision you made. You're on a new adventure and I bet your time will fill up very quickly!
Gorgeous photos of the Sorbonne area of Paris, and oh my, your meals look divine! Thanks for sharing and a happy belated T day!

It sounds like the caravan has been a great escape over the years and I'm sure you'll find new adventures awaiting you now your moving on 😀. If you are ever over this way in the future it still would be lovely to meet up although I understand that you may not be over this way as much now. Paris looks amazing and I love the place you stopped for lunch, wow that dessert selection looks amazing 😁. Happy belated T Day wishes! Take care! Hugs, Jo x
