I don't speak French and since this tour will we my fourth time in France I thought it would be good to try to learn some of the language. I bought one of those French in Five Minutes a Day books and actually opened it up yesterday! It was quite fun to do the worksheets and listen to the CD. We'll see if I can remember any of the actual phrases when I'm there.
On another note, since last Wednesday I have been sick. It's one of those yucky colds where my sinuses feel like they are going to explode! NOT FUN!! My weekend was pretty much spent napping and trying to fight this thing. The worst thing about a cold for a foodie like me is the loss of taste. Plus, I cannot have any wine or beer because if I can't taste it, what's the point?! I did concoct a relaxing hot toddy recipe that I drank the last two nights before I ran out of Bourbon. I'll post that recipe tomorrow! Stay healthy everyone...
