Comments/Compliments/Complaints: I have only seen Michael today, he said ooh purple dress or something of that nature

Today was another lazy day, lovely.  Last night we ate a cheese plate for dinner and drank wine and beers on the balcony.  After that we played Cinq-o, a dice game, and I won.  Nice. I also started tearing through the first book in the Sookie Stackhouse series, I am going to make short work of those books.

We awoke late today again and had coffee on our balcony, the view really doesn't get old.  We lounged about all day and I made us a gouda, boursin and veggie egg scramble with a baguette and some yogurt.  Michael read H.M.S. Surprise, one of the books in the Aubrey/Maturin Novels, while I continued reading Dead Until Dark while sunbathing on the balcony.  Bliss.  I finally put a dress on around 3pm, after a shower and hair washing.  Good thing there was a hair dryer here since mine is a. at home and b. the same brand as the melted curling iron from yesterday so it would've done some damage no doubt.

Today's dress is pretty out of the ordinary for me since it's purple, my least favorite of all the colors.  I really like the fit and flow of it though and I think purple might be growing on me a little. Shh! Don't tell it I said so. I didn't feel like doing much with my hair so I pulled it back into a low bun and attached a fresh lily into the hair band.  I got a huge bouquet of lilies for $4.80 at a flower market.  They are making our apartment smell absolutely divine.  I wanted to keep the outfit light and girly so I wore my sandals, even though I am in dire need of a pedicure. I brought nail polish but my two remover pads didn't work so well and I was only able to remove my fingernail polish.  Oh well.  Michael took my picture in a cool old stairwell that provides access to our street, or rather hill.  Unfortunately the key we have does not work for its gate and we are forced to walk up and down another large hill to get to our apartment.  Our calves are hurty. At least I'm getting a little workout since I am eating an obscene amount of cheese.

We finally left the house today to go to the grocery store for much needed wine, beer, water, and food.  Eating in is saving us a ton of money and allowing us to relax and enjoy our apartment.  We do plan to swim tomorrow and visit La Zucca Magica for another amazing meal before we leave.  Tonight after what has been our daily McDonalds visit we are in search of either gelato or creme brulee, two things we decided we must experience here before leaving.  Today I bought some famous Nice olives so I can scratch that off our list too.  Apparently Nice is famous for their olives and olive oil so I'll have to obtain some for take home.
