rainy day

Today is a rainy day, and I decided to stay in and just take it easy. Bertrand is in Austria with the orchestra he is in, and Ivana and the kids went to her parents house. I am watching The Sound of Music, drinking tea, and eating hazelnuts. It's nice to just hang out, and have a little quiet time.

I was invited out to a birthday party tonight in Geneva, but it's at a club, and no one is meeting up until 11:30, and the last train to Genolier leaves at midnight. So unless I want to stay out all night... Not really. Clubbing is not exactly my scene. After meeting loads of au pair girls at the au pair club on Thursday, I realized a few things. I'm older than most au pairs (most of them are 19-20, I'm nearly 26), which I expected before coming... but sometimes (I stress sometimes) the maturity difference is quite obvious. After talking to a few the other day, I realized they still weren't out of that "get-drunk-as-possible-every-chance". Which I seemed to just pass by in my life - I've never really been into drinking or partying. I would much rather spend my time reading, singing/making music, conversing, cycling, exploring, looking at/creating art, and going to bed early than getting drunk and dancing in a club. Ah well, to each his own, right? I'm very thankful for the friends I've made that share similar interests as me.

It's been raining all day, so I think today will be a movie, music, and reading day. I think today, in Chicago, my family is all getting together because my brother & my sis-in-law are in town. I'm kinda sad that I don't get to see them, but I know they are going to visit me soon.

Happy Saturday!

Hi Camille! It's been incredibly rainy here and today is the Kenosha Open. Due to scheduling, a bunch of us took a pass and in retrospect, that was a wise decision. As you know, the game can be quite aggravating and to be wet and cold would add insult to injury. We hope people will come over today but the weather is miserable. We should all be doing what you are doing! It's that kind of day here.
Love you and miss you Camille!

Hi Camille,
Thanks ever so for your very kind comments a few posts ago. Sorry I haven't been in touch for a while. I have had visitors here from Scotland, so busy showing them this wonderful country.
It's the first session of our Geneva Writers' Group this Saturday 20th. I think you would like it, do you want to come with me? I always take the train so we could time it to connect with the train from Genolier. Also, it's my readers of the Living in Nyon blog evening on Thursday, you are welcome to that too. Send me an email re Saturday and we can co-ordinate. A bientôt Catherine
