Friday Shopping at the Mall

Yeah, it's Friday! What a busy week it's been, but it's been a good kind of busy, where everything is interesting, challenging and new, but today I had to get out of the apartment for a "shopping fix".

Just as I finished a few online tasks this afternoon, I got the sudden urge to go to Ikea and buy a new pot, since the only pot I own in Paris was turned into a flaming torch last week. I can't seem to scrub it clean.

Once I realized Ikea was almost 1 hour away by train, I changed my mind and decided to go shopping at a small mall and Carrefour (my Wal-mart fix) in the neighborhood where I lived last year.

There were hundred's of pots, but not many with lids, which is a requirement now since the fire. I also saw a small indoor grill for the kitchen, but as I reached for it to take a closer look, a voice inside asked, "Florence, how determined are you to burn down your apartment building?" No reply was necessary, instead I slowly backed away from the enticing indoor grill and went to look for microwave popcorn.

I did not find a pot, which means I'll have to plan for a trip to Ikea next week, but I did have a successful shopping day.

Paul's Boulangerie Bakery at the Mall...ahhh the smell of fresh baked bread

Ah Chocolat!

...and Mc D's!

Friday, The Mall, Fresh Baked Bread (when you're on a low carb diet) , chocolate (on a no-sugar diet) and Mc D's (just because I love Mc D's) all this in Paris on a sunny afternoon?!...This might just as well be heaven for me!
