Beautiful painting! Today is fabulous here! I'll be doing a lot of walking IN my house. It looks like the party bomb blew up here. I am recovering from having so many people I love here for the weekend and dinner.
Your painting has inspired me to get out in my garden, though!
Have a fabulous day!

Oh yes Mimi....walking in solitude is fabulous, but when the weather is fine, it is always better with a loved one by your side, whether it's a four-footed beast or your amour!!!! BISOUS! Anita

Bonjour Mimi,
Un peu de fantaisie et de romantisme dans ce "monde de bruts". Cela fait du bien. Merci

My Grama's Soul said...

What a lovely painting you have choses; to display a truly special time in our world!! Just walking......such a civilized thing to do....instead of running around at break-neck pace as most Americans do.

Blessings friend,

Jo

Beautiful painting. It makes me want to go out for a walk. Too bad is going to snow all day and all night...bleah...

Rita said...

We've had a rainy Easter weekend. I'd have loved some lovely weather to take my DD, DH and sweet dog along and go for a walk!
Until the weather picks up again, I'll let that fabulous painting you've shared today inspire me.
Hope you and your hubby had a great Easter weekend!
hugs

Ah Mimi....you've got the magic! Who you are with, no matter where you are, makes the moment. Yes, Ruben and I so enjoy even walking down the alley of our neighborhood together!!!!! Laughing, talking, discussing ideas, you name it. But of course, we also LOVE walking the streets of Paris, stopping in a boulangerie or two as well!!!

Have a magnificent week ma belle! Anita

A lovely reminder to walk out the door and go exploring. A bit dark and grey today but I can bring an umbrella! Beautiful painting.

Trish said...

Hello! I am so happy to have been introduced to your blog by my friend the Fabulous Bumpkin! Happy to be a new follower, can't wait to catch up on your older posts! Simply beautiful painting! :)

Jacqueline said...

Dear Mimi,
A perect picture of a walk in the Spring sunshine. Our Spring is beginning but, the rain was pouring today !!...but, the blossom is out and it was warmer today.
Thank you, dear Mimi, for your sympathy over my oyster poisoning. You really made me feel better. I am so much better today and, after no food for three days, I went to the garden centre with a friend today and had soup so, I feel as if I can eat again. I never thought that I would !!
Enjoy the Spring sunshine, Mimi. XXXX

Sherrie said...

Yes, I was hoping you would stop by for a comment about my black dishes, the ones marked France. My friend Linda helped to identify the USA Black dishes but I still was looking for any french expertise on the other set. I always enjoy strolling through your posts, lovely and inspirational, and so refreshing. Have a lovely day.

Duchess of Tea said...

Oh! darling I have been trying to log onto your blog and for some reason I wasn't able too, until now. Luv, I did just that this morning, went for a walk with my son. It was so lovely, we talked, stopped and had breakfast and walked some more. He bought a posy of wildflowers for me and told me I am the best mum. What else can a mother ask for.

Love & Hugs
Duchess
