I'm in Cannes...

I had on the Today Show and Anne Curry was in Cannes for the Film Festival.
With so much going on, I decided to pull a French is a state of mind and go there myself.
You have seen this photo but it still makes me smile. I call him Cannes man. When you least expect it, he starts moving. Kids (adults too) love him.

Such a beautiful spot.

Looking down on the Croisette. Not too busy but it really picks up in the evening.
Many families out for their evening stroll.

Just so serene.

Roof shot of The Noga Hilton.

Ok, I needed that little break.

Not much flower sniffing going on this week.
It has been a tough week health wise for my son.
He may be headed back to the hospital. One day at a time.

We have had record breaking heat for May. 14 days of triple temps.
Today will be a chilly 98. My oh my!

In between running around like a crazed nut, I have been able to add some items to my shop.
Several months ago I ordered some marvelous pillows that arrived this week. Yay!
I'm so excited.

Some other pretties as well.

I have also been improving my soldering technique.
No idle hands here-hehe.

I also wanted to thank you for your comments and emails. They really do mean the world.
At a low moment, they can pull me right up.
Bloggers are the best!

I've never been to Cannes, but always associate it with glamour and film stars!
Sorry to hear about your son, and will continue praying for him.
