Vert du Jalousie


Today mes chère amies Genie and Marie (aka M) are dashing off to Paris for a week. To make matters worse, they will be staying in the fabulous apartment that Mary and I adored last January, and will get to spend a week with our dear Janeen!  Did I mention meeting up with fellow bloggers Peter, Nathalie and who knows who else?  Meanwhile, I'm limping around packing and unpacking, packing and unpacking. Color me VERT!!! ( But very happy that I will get to chat with them daily and live vicariously through their photos.)

Hurry and you can come with us! Bring Mary too! You know that Holly and I behaved ourselves at Janeen's in December but you broke the ice on that with your wild party in January... You are a tough act to follow, ma chere!

With the list of kisses for people, hugs to others, and things you gave me to do, I am going to feel like you are right there with me. Big hugs, and we need to go together again soon. It has been almost a year. I think Paris can handle it.

Bisous,
G

This is Belgium said...

Birmingham is not bad either... you do have a huge statue on a hill too though, don't you? Maybe it could become your green tower for us to buy and bring back to and treasure in Europe?

M said...

We will miss you, Virginia, but you will be there with us en esprit! Hope you're knee gets better quickly and you are ready for some Parisian cobblestone walking soon. Blessings for your new home ... must post lots of pics so that we can have a virtual tour of chez Virginia.

Genie and I will deliver all your smoochies, hugs, etc.


Gros bisous, Marie

Virginia said...

Belgium, you are correct, here in Birmingham we have the big iron guy Vulcan! I don't know how everyone would feel about a green one though! :)

Genie and M, Bon voyage dear ones. Can't wait to hear what fun you will be having.

Now who'd of thought a green eiffel tower was the perfect photo to take at the time...it certainly fits the occasion!!!

Daryl said...

Starman said...

At least, Genie and Co. will have great weather for their marathon walks (though they just missed THE marathon).

Alexa said...

I know exactly how you feel, V! But I can't exactly complain since I was just there. :~}
I looove this gorgeous green ET!

Peter said...

After some very warm days the temperature should be down to more normal spring as from tomorrow, but I guess that Genie and Marie will do their best to get the temperature up again! :-)

Virginia said...

Pamela, Well my friend, we are all in this together n'est-ce pas? We go , we return, we yearn, we wish, we live through our friends. We get to Paris in a lot of ways. Le sigh!

Peter,
As you know I"m yearning........ as always.

Petrea Burchard said...

Now you know how I feel when you go, V! Thank goodness you take so many pictures.

I don't have a GREEN Eiffel Tower - one more reason to go back to Paris again! You'll see our "Dinner with the French" on my blog today!
Bonjour d'EAGAN

I love this composition!! Green is my favourite colour. I would love to have such an Eiffel Tower! And I´m also green with envy concerning Genie´s stay in Paris ;-)
