The interior of The Atrium building on Yates and Blanshard Streets
this picture was taken from our table inside the restaurant.
We decided to brunch at Zambri's, as it is one of our favourite spots to dine.
Poached free range farm fresh eggs on a bed of spinach atop a sliver of in house made bread lightly toasted
served with a creamy bechamel sauce....
Oh my this was so delicious.
Looking at these daffodils blooming sunny yellow, they cannot help but cheer one's spirit.
The flowering trees that line Meares Street are a riot of blossoms...
their petals are falling like snowflakes...a westcoast version of snow!
Mother was under the weather and phoned me bright and early to cancel our weekly
Mother and Two Daughters Shopping and Dining Date...
Mom thankfully is feeling better now,
I checked on her... (so did my sister!)
It turns out she had a sleepless night.
Didn't I just write a post on this very subject?
I took advantage of the time and got some domestics done around here...
laundry, sorting, cooking and a wee bit of Paris Planning.
At Vanity Fair Antiques last week I mentioned that I was going to Paris...
I was thrilled to find out that one of the women who works there is going too.
She and her husband are renting an apartment for 6 weeks and it is conveniently located quite near my hotel.
We are planning a few outings and I hope one will be to go to the Antique Markets in Paris.
Uber comfy boots ~ Clarks Artisan line
for walking many kilometers along the cobblestone rues, avenues and boulevards of Paris...
a wooly beret just in case the days are chilly or damp
a feather in my cap..."ahem beret"...just because
The French lessons are helping but I have a LONG way to go...
it is a much steeper learning curve than I could have imagined...
Alors! I continue to press on.
I decided that I would take two cashmere cardigans...
the orange one and this one in a soft grey...they are light and offer cozy warmth.
Will need to decide which strand of pearls to take...
Want to take my perfume but this bottle exceeds Air France's limit for my carry on...
So much planning

it's hard to imagine how I will feel when I am in Paris.
Friends who have been to Paris say that the streets in Paris are alive with people.
The architecture, culture, and fashion are fabulous.
They have been advising me to wander the avenues and soak in all the beauty.
Then stop for a bit and sit watching the people stroll by from an outdoor cafe.
"Paris is a place where, for me, just walking down a street that I've never been down before is like going to a movie or something. Just wandering the city is entertainment."
~ Wes Anderson ~
It's still weeks away so I have lots of time to dream.
The Paris obsession is becoming a daily routine on Pinterest.
What is your most memorable moment in Paris?
