Weekend wrap up
we wined and dined and visited friends aboard their boat in False Creek
we walked in Stanley Park
poking in shops
sleeping late in the most comfortable beds...
digs for the weekend
Wetizman "party shoes"
before we tripped the light fantastic...
Black Symplii dress
rolled in a ball in my suitcase
unrolled and crinkle free
Debra Kay necklace
before sipping a nightcap high above the clouds
(if memory serves)
looking at the city lights
and there were fireworks below!
When we got together with our friends
I wore a LBD sheath style with little room to lift a leg
and getting into the minivan model taxi was less than lady like!
Boarding the boat was virtually the same
thank heavens no one was following behind me!
We had bubbly and some nibbles before we went to the
The food was amazing and the atmosphere subtle
every table was in use
and most people were enjoying themselves...
except for one unfortunate couple who were engaged in a very heated discussion within earshot
my friend Cheryl and I were treated to a list of expletives that made us turn around.
A couple in their late 50's to mid 60's were having a full on domestic dispute!
I've never been in a situation quite like this one.
The waiter came over and told them to take it outside!
They left promptly leaving us wondering what could have gone wrong in such a romantic establishment.
made in Canada
cross body saddle leather
the tangerine cellphone case was a gift with purchase
now in the hands of lovely daughter
an everyday basic
with pockets and compartments inside
I'd call this bag a work horse.
Next stop was Hermes...
busy place on the day we chose to pop in
Birkins on the wrists of most of the well heeled customers
(Mr. HB whispers "what recession!")
Terre d'Hermes for Mr. HB
Voyage d'Hermes for my sister
(we wear the same scent!)
It took about 30 minutes to choose my new scarf
this was my first choice and I kept trying others with more splash and colour
but I kept coming back to this painterly pattern.

(it looks great with pearls!)
Belated Happy Birthday Hostess!
There's more shopping adventures to follow when I have more time
so please stay tuned...
In the meantime we have to eat so
I made a curry for our lovely daughter and her friend in appreciation
as they house and cat sat.
We lunched at Rangoli in the Tony South Granville neighbourhood.
it's Vij's casual eatery.
The food is amazing Indian fusion
the food and flavours are complex
my taste buds did a happy dance!
I made the chicken curry
served it over rice...
Prosecco for the ladies
beer for the gents.
I'll close with this image of a lone native plant
which is bravely blooming in the rocky area of the school grounds.
It reminds me of my favourite Mary Engelbreit quote
"Bloom where you are planted"
Don't forget to stop and smell the flowers!
