Right now. . . July 20th

feeling : fat, but happy. Is that even possible? I have not been working out since the last 10k, my knee is feeling okay and just when I thought of starting my brisk walking programme again, I accidentally kicked some kind of product display at the gas station on Sunday. That thing punctured my right foot, somewhere between the fourth and pinky toe.Punctured, for real. Needless to say, I still have a little bit of a limp now. *i have photos, but I really don't wanna gross you out. LOL*

wanting : some sizzix dies - this one, this one and this one. As usual, I have plans for them. When will the plan be kicked into action, I have no idea.

reading : still so much absorbed with the life of Sookie Stackhouse. So much, that i dream of vampires and weres and shifters. *shivers* LOL.

craving : iced mexican coffee with cafe de olla. *sigh*

  • And oh, I got a few email about stitching hearts on layouts, I thought I should point you to this tutorial I posted on the Studio Calico blog. But don't let that stop you from emailing me! I love getting your emails :)
Project 365


Homework. We have tables and chairs, you know? I'm not sure why she prefers to kneel beside the bed.


Teatime for one. :) Those are fish crackers + chili sauce. So so yummy.


Grandma time. FYI, my mom hated that massage chair. LOL. I'm not sure why/how she got on it. Must be the kids.


Desaru. We were there for a little while after visiting our beloved tailor. That's my baby sister and the two guys in the background, they were hitting on her and it was hilarious to watch. LOL.

Candies galore. *sigh* Gummy bears by the sackload? Why the hell not? My children are not climbing walls yet, so bring it on. haha!


My horror. Everyday. They're building new elevators for the buildings around here. The constant drilling and knocking off walls are driving me crazy. Or should I say crazier, since I'm already a little bit insane. :P


Resin flowers. Remember the 50 pairs of earrings for the goody bags I said I was gonna make? Done. I regret not getting more... um.. for myself. LOL.


The gorgeous sun this morning. Taken on the way back from our breakfast date.

  • Okay, WOW, I just realized, over 200 already. Another 164 days and we're done with 2011. Where is the pause button?

I love the pic of your mom in the massage chair! I totally understand why she hated it. I'm petite too, and I look exactly like her sitting in the one we have at work. The leg massage ends up at my ancles so I can't even feel it, and the shoulder massage just makes my head rock back and forth like mad :D They really should make special chairs for smaller ladies like us! / Rockermorsan

Mary Jo said...

Vera said...

Beautiful pictures, Sasha!

Vera said... fingers! sorry to hear about your knee and foot. OUCH! Hope you're on the road to mending!

Sherri said...

Sorry about your foot. There's always time to work out though right?! When we're not having fun doing other stuff, or too busy doing the stuff that needs to be done. I've not worked out since mid-June. I'm feeling okay, but know that I have to watch it. Love the tutorial on the stitching by the way, thanks so much for that. I tried my hand at it again last week (pic on my blog), I love how it turned out. The canvas was super easy to stitch on. Now that I know you divide your thread into only 2 ply, I realize what my problem has been stitching on paper all this time. Can't wait to give it another go. I may need to lift your card. That would be a great one to have multiple copies of, so versatile. Love, love, love the pic of the candy bins, so colorful and inspiring! Nice to catch up with you girl♥
