a man making bread

most days, at some point, i dream of living in europe again. my husband and i lived in vilnius lithuania for a year. we have been back in the states for three years now but we still miss it terribly. Next time we live in europe we'll open a coffee shop with our dear friend and i think we'll either live in Vilnius again or maybe somewhere in France.

On my google homepage i have several tabs and one tab is just for web cams from paris and vilnius. so sometimes i will leave them up all day and glance at them now and again. I'll watch the cars and small dots of people walk past cathedral square in vilnius, sit at a sidewalk cafe somewhere in paris, or watch the boulanger make bread at 75 Rue d'Auteuil. I makes me happy, in a sort of melancholy way.

    I've never been to Europe but like many other people it is definitely on the top of my list of places to go. There just seems to be something there that I can relate to so much more than here in the states.

  2. just hopped over from my little blog to yours...sometimes the best way to get the slip you want, is to find one that fits you first, send it my way and i am happy to customize...just make sure it is in good condition without 'tears and stains' so it dyes nicely...i do have larger sized slips and if you know your size you can always email me (it's on the sidebar of my blog) and i will see what i have...thanks for visiting me and i'll be back to delve in to your blog later...

    Oh! how perfect! I could not get the bread baking cam to load, though...I'll have to try again later as I need to see that! : )

    I found a live street cam in Key West, FL on Duval Street:

    not as quaint as bread bakers....but it has sound and everything...pretty neat! : ) I don't know why it amazes me so that the world is going on even when I can't see it! : )

  4. I stumbled upon your blog after clicking on many links this morning and I'm glad I did. Just an hour ago, before leaving for work, I was daydreaming about living in Italy. The smell of coffee in my apartment this morning reminded me of cafe life there, and I found myself aching to be back, so I loved reading this post. I'll definitely be exploring more of your posts here, fellow Portlander!
