This was the view on Sunday evening as I headed out to do some late night grocery shopping and make a stop at a pharmacy a bit further afield. I was a bit tired since I have a cold so I got a late start. I'm glad I did get out because I needed the air and the walk. It was a bit chilly and the first time I've needed to wrap a scarf around my neck. It's been especially cold here over the past several days, especially at night. The temperature is down to 3 or 4 degrees Celsius at night and around 7 during the day. By the end of the week it should go back up to around 12 Celsius.
In January 2019 I travelled to Paris with my nephew. We had a great time and both of us would like to return some day, maybe during the Fall or Spring seasons. This year I've read a number of books set in Paris. The most recent one was written by Kate Betts, an American fashion journalist who began her career at Fairfield Publications European office in Paris. I found the book very interesting because she met the top fashion designers of the day: Karl Lagerfeld, Yves St. Laurent, Christian Lacroix, Christian Louboutin,, Thierry Mugler and others. I am not a fashionista and I do not follow the fashion trends but I found it interesting to have a peek into the world of Parisian fashion through the eyes of an American expat.
Unfortunately, Canada's Covid numbers have been escalating since our Thanksgiving weekend a few weeks ago. New and various restrictions are being brought it in various provinces including British Columbia where I live in an effort to contain the virus. I continue to keep as isolated as possible and wear my mask whenever I have to go out and do business. Otherwise there is not a lot of excitement around here in day to day life. That is fine by me because it allows me to get the tedious jobs done.
If all goes well, I'm hoping to have different scenery and photos for you over the coming weeks and months. Just bare with me for a while longer.
What about your dear reader? What is keeping you busy and occupied during these Covid times?
Until I read from you, please stay safe and take care.
