Don't U wish U were there today..?
Instead of here?
*Note Bear is guarding envelopes waiting for mon Oncle Sam.
The clock is going tik tok tik tok!!!
Piles of green headed out the door today...
Have you ever been to Pierre Herme at 6:45 pm on a Saturday?
That's my bank account tomorrow...
M T :) Yeah, I'm seeing RED!
And my appetite!
I keep checking the fridge...
Anything to avoid signing checks...
I'm looking for something fruity...
But I'd settle for MacDo's at this point...
(if it was in Paris)
R U in the same boat?
My heart goes out 2 U.
I guess we'll all be good boys and girls and do our taxes on time...ahem
I'm gonna hit it with my best shot...
So I can celebrate later.


  1. first of all I need to have those bowls that say bonjour....gotta gotta find them next time and second of all...up here in the north we have until Apr 30th for our taxes....ha ha

    but mine are already done....:)

  2. Darn you DEBBIE! :)
    U can find those bowls in Galerie Lafayette HOME in the basement next time U pop by...

  3. Hi Carol:
    These are so enjoyable,
    And yes, we are all in the same boat
    (the tax blahs)

  4. this boat is getting crowded! Moi aussi! My macaron budget is shot...!!!

  5. Very clever post, Carole! Bien sur! Who wouldn't rather be in Paris than at the computer?
    I do my taxes in February...stopped procrastinating long ago. I am going to Yoga, gardening and enjoying the sunshine today.

    Be brave sign those cheques and get back to Paris, so we can enjoy your blog. Time to go I am getting hungry.

  7. Very cute post, Carol! I stopped off at the Post Office and mailed my tax returns this morning. Nothing like down to the wire, eh?

    Happy taxes--you made me smile anyway, cutie.

    How are things in New York?

    Happy Tax Day!


  9. Carol, this day too, shall pass!
    Hang in there! Have a great one!

  10. This one time I'd rather be in the US, what with that nasty volcanic ash spreading eastward from Iceland. Word is that even Paris might have to close its airports (that stuff can't be healthful to inhale, either, and Bear might even need a bath after the ash has passed).

    Taxes went in the mail this AM: no matter how careful the planning, we wind up overpaying during the year, then getting a refund (with no interest, of course). Would rather have the money up-front!

  11. Lively and colorful visuals!
    And hello, dear Bear!
    Loved your Repetto post too...
    Patty and Eric Nauman

  12. Claim Bear as a dependent and they will be mailing money to you!

  13. I would rather be in Paris many days. Love those bowls!

  14. Students LOVE tax day...we get huge returns!

    As a new follower of your blog, I must say, you've simply inspired me to make MACAROONS! YUM :)

  15. I am praying for a big tax refund for you!
    That way we get many more laughs out of such depressing events like the 15th of April.
    Merci for the smiles,
    Merisi xxx

  17. My fav Fall/Winter song ~ I was hoping for a French version, but I'll listen to this a million times and dance along ...

    "Don't be jealous of my boogie!" says Ru Paul.

    Thank goodness I do my taxes ahead of time, all the time. It's such a chooooooore.
