Bonjour Dedene! Merci pour ton invitation, mais oui j'accepte! Allez!!! (Y a t-il des accents sur ton nom??)
La France...si loin, mais en fait...ici même! That's one of the appealing factors of tu.diabetes. I'm in Canada...in the southwestern part of the province of Ontario...a city named Kitchener-Waterloo (2 cities joined together). I'm a wife of 33 years, mom to two grown children, a grandma to 3 lovable little boys, a teacher, and before that an illustrator and graphic designer....I speak French and English, I read, history fascinates me, I paint, sing, walk, garden, ski, ride my bike....did I mention "read"? I love having friends over, I bake/cook, am an eclectic music lover, an animal lover...the ocean...ah the ocean...it speaks to me! Oh...and I have diabetes (and a few other things).
En passant....les miens sont venus de la Normandie il y a 400 ans, pour se planter les pieds aux environs de la cité de Québec!
Et toi? Tu as une histoire?...raconte :)
Keep in touch, ok?
