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.
