What I've been up to

Finished reading What Is the What, about the civil war in Sudan (not just Darfur). It's a biography of a Sudanese child who ran from the war into Ethiopia and Kenya. Really good, I recommend.
We have a new guest! And a new grill. We're gonna start off by grilling some sweet corn, onions and veggie patties. We're happy to have him :)
We took him to the Farmer's Market yesterday. It was packed, and hot. Had some tamales, iced tea, yummy.
Got this bookshelf at Goodwill for $35 dollars! We fixed it, painted it and it now sits comfortably in my bedroom. It's already full of books.
Been making some mini albums (from our trip through AZ, CO, NM and UT and Lake Tahoe), and some scrapbook pages. I can those later.
And a little bit of sewing. I need to fix my stitches, though. They're coming loose.
Other than that, just brewing fresh iced tea and cooking a bit.
What have you been up to?

See how bored I am?

Yesterday I found the perfect dress. I wish I had found it before my graduation. It was perfect, and it fit me perfectly too (which is not common), but it cost $350. So much for the perfect dress...

Yesterday I also saw Up, the Disney/Pixar cartoon. It is so cute, I love it. You all should go see it. There's scrapbook and balloons, I'm sold.

I also made this. It's a coffee cup holder, so I don't have to waste the paper ones everything I get a hot drink.

Other than that, I've just been counting the days. Just one more month. It has to go by fast.

Look what I made!!!

I call it a love whale because the final stitches looks like she just had a baby whale. But then again, all my animals will be love animals until I learn how to close them up properly.

Eu fiz lasanha from scratch. No, really. Cê, lembrei de você no Starbucks me ensinando a fazer arroz (eu ensinei pro Jake outro dia, ele também não sabia) e Si Higuchi, esse post iria pro nosso blog de comidas, lembra? Hehehe.

A receita pra quem quiser está aqui. Eu colocaria mais tomate e mais massa e menos azeite e menos berinjela (sobrou). Ficou boa pra uma primeira tentativa! Mas dá um trabalhão.

  • Blink 182 is back back back! And touring!
  • This tastes good (apesar de parecer nojento - sim, é um escorpião de verdade):
  • Hoje fui nadar na piscina da escola. Os meninos usam shorts colados (tipo de ciclista) ao invés de sunga, até as crianças. Tem tipo uma centrífuga onde você coloca o maiô dentro e segura por 5 segundos a tampa. O maiô sai quase seco. Coisas de primeiro mundo.
  • Já contei que temos um microondas e não temos mais que esquentar coisas em banho maria ou na panela de arroz? E a chaleira que nos livrou de esperar 10 minutos pra esquentar água na panela? Presentes de mamãe e titia :)
  • Alguém ainda lendo esse blog?
