my bedroom wall still feels somewhat bare, so I'm thinking of getting these prints..

* three days into possessing a sewing machine and I still haven't quite figure out how to put the thread on, or what to do with it afterwards:( I'm mad at myself for impulse shopping now...

old pic...

I don't know how this picture got on my PC, but since my mac was broken I'd lost access to all my old pictures. I loved this brownie, it was yummy:)

One of my favorite Chinese author..I'm not sure what is the proper English translation for her name, but I've been reading her novels again lately.. probably for the 20th time.

I woke up in the morning and found this sewing machine on my desk without much recollection of how or why I got it...well but there it is, I guess I can make something with it now??

a few things I'm contemplating...

my first attempt at making clam pasta. I was pretty happy with the result!
I'm in love with this chair from Crate and Barrel, it's so soft and comfortable. It's one of those recliners that make you not want to get up!

there's nothing much to do on a holiday so I wondered around in Silver Lake for a few hours, drank ice tea and got yummy gelato.
Otherwise today is a very stressful day, I'm not a total control freak when it comes to work but still don't like things gone out of my hands. I guess there are people in the world with worse problems than I do, so I will stop complaining :,,(

I heart this smart candle pin, but a few things are lining up waiting to be purchased. First of all, my mac pro is broken since mom poured a glass of milk over it, and then maybe a new camera, and then maybe a new house so that I will have a place to put this nice candle pin in:)

I did bowling for the first time



I bought these two hanging plants today since I have no greens in the room. I also need a indoor tree for a cornor and some fresh flowers. Now my piano studio is open for business!
perfect latte and almond croissant with powdered sugar. I crave sweets so much these days especially the bad for you ones. Eh, I haven't had a donut for almost two years:(


coffee house with freshly roasted beans.

I'd much prefer sleeping in with bowbow and eating ginercookies on a cold morning :)
