Today, Kendra and I decided to enjoy the sunny skies and go for a walk down by the river. There is this florist/greenhouse for sale, and I think the lot is full of stories. The store is still stocked, and the outside area is still decorated with lawn ornaments. I LOVE lawn ornaments. I can't wait to have my own garden.
I am looking forward to many meaningful walks while I'm in Provence. I can't wait to explore the markets, side streets, and hill towns of Southern France. I have a feeling that I will not want to return home from this trip. I also cannot wait to experience one night in Paris by myself. I can make a detailed plan, or I can just go with whatever eggs me on. I think Paris is one of the most walkable cities. How can one not enjoy a city that has beauty everywhere? What a way to end my trip...
I also hope that with my move (fingers crossed) that I will find myself constantly exploring the city and areas around. There are many places to walk in Indy (Art Museum, Monan Trail, etc.). I look forward to summer evenings and strolling the town.
I have such a sense of excitement and hope coming over me today. I think my mood definitely reflects the weather. I thought for sure I would wake up with a fever and taken over by a cold, but somehow I still have not succumbed to the evil fate. I have such a busy week with meetings, classes, my evaluation, and a conference in Chicago. I've got plans for my afternoon in Chicago after the conference, and I am hoping that illness does not hold me back. How often do I get to go into Chicago, especially on a Tuesday?
Well, tonight is the superbowl, but I could care less about the teams. I am watching to get a glimpse of Indy during an exciting time for the city. I wish I could have gone down yesterday to check out Superbowl village. But then again, I want to go down every day.
