    As I was taking this quiz, I stopped at the word ‘nenuphar’. I know that, it’s Lily. Why do I know that? From this post that I put on the site about 10 months ago. It certainly seemed familiar. Another post about cleaning ponds with flowers…

    If you ask anyone in my family, they’ll say I must know the rules or the instructions in order to do anything. I don’t know if that’s true. It certainly was when I was a kid. now I’m not too sure. I just do what I want.

    Like continuing with this project. We’ll see what my Alliance Francais teacher says in a couple of weeks. Will they agree with what I’m building or tell me to stop immediately. If it’s the latter I might not follow the instructions.

    I love this snippet for the image she paints. Here’s a man who is always living to excess, despite having money troubles, and what is more excessive than having workers to clean leaves in your garden? I want that.
