April (snow) showers

I keep telling everybody that the weather in Annecy is gorgeous in April. “Don’t worry, last year it was sunny and 70.” “You won’t need warm clothes or an umbrella.” Ummm. This is what it looked like yesterday:


Today it’s raining, but it still feels just as cold. And the forecast for the next 5 days is, of course, rain. ::sigh:: To compare, this was April 9, 2007:


I promise it’s usually nice in April. I don’t know why this year has to be so crappy. So since I’m spending a lot of time indoors these days, I keep taking pictures of Canaille because he’s so cute. And always in the way.

He does this every morning when I’m trying to get ready. And then he needs a drink.


And of course there is a website called catsinsinks.com. It cracks me up!

    It’s raining in Provence too-no snow though. I saw a blog the other day full of photos of nothing but cats in sinks. I guess they must like them alot although I’ve never caught mine in one.

    Oh I am glad I missed the snow! It was nice and sunny where I was. And my cat loved the sink and running water when he was a kitten, but he doesn’t do it so much now. Now he just yells at me to open the window so he can sit on the ledge 20ft above the ground and watch the birds!

    I was in France last month and it was really cold! Worse is, everybody assumed I should feel like wearing tee-shirt and shorts “because you know, it’s so cold in Canada, you must feel warm here!”Er… not really. Got sick in Paris! :D

Why is Jennie no longer in France?

I created this blog in September 2006 when I moved to France from Michigan to teach English. Many of the earlier posts are about my personal life in France, dealing with culture shock, traveling in Europe and becoming fluent in French. In July 2011, I relocated to Australia to start my PhD in Applied Linguistics. Although I am no longer living in France, my research is on foreign language pedagogy and I teach French at a university so these themes appear most often on the blog. I also continue to post about traveling and being an American abroad.
