Lenten Penance

This past week I learned the hard way that neither my landlady nor myself had been paying my EDF bill. Oops, way to go grown-up Lauren. I was without electricity for an entire week.  Rather than, pouting and thinking that it was the end of the world, did the opposite. I became more social and made lunch, dinner, coffee, drink plans with friends.  

Some places that I liked: 

no wi-fi, perfect place to meet friends. 

Located on a small winding rue in the Marias, its a great place to people and waiter watch. 

And I went exploring around Paris.  

Even in the rain, exploring was very pleasant. Remember, always have your umbrella. 

And although now tout est bien I’m proud of myself that I stayed optimistic.  Also, it was a great Lenten penance…when people ask me what I’m giving up for Lent, I say “electricity”!  

Have a fabulous Friday!
