Right now - August 12th.

feeling : bittersweet.

wanting : to finish packing the goody bags.

having : a headache. falling asleep in the middle of the afternoon does that to me, everytime.

listening : P!nk - F**kin' Perfect. I cry a little everytime, but I still keep it on repeat.

thinking : about a million different things. I need to stop and take a deep breath and reorganize my thoughts and plans. what can be done, what must be done - stuff like that. maybe I'll start with sewing the squares of fabric I cut many months ago, together - my attempt on making a quilt top, remember? *where is that stack again? ha!*

doing : finishing the last couple of stitches on this piece.

needing : to update my Project 365 :) here we go!

Nidhi biting into her lunch. It was a chicken and cheeseburger. Delish according to her.

If you're anything like me, pee before you enter the movie hall. Just sayin' :) Rated M18 - we went while the girls were in school.

This bag is gone now. Torn. I had no idea then, but I'm glad I took this pic because we love Spongebob very much in this house.

Neha came back from a 3 day camp today. She looked tired and grubby and about ready to head to bed for a week. :D We hung out at Starbucks while waiting for Nidhi to finish school.

Red Velvet cupcakes - according to them. I don't think so. These has some kind of berry in it.

This little one has been sticking to me like a glob of glossy accent. This was the night I slept in her room and she couldn't be happier. :D

the new IKEA catalog is here! :) I consider myself lucky to have one a 5 minute drive away. No, I don't go there often, it's just comforting to know that it's there. :)

My Papa. Like me, he loves food. He loves food shopping. You can see him choosing papadom here. And like me, he loves to read labels and can spend hours wandering the aisles. :)

I don't know what do they call this in english. but in Malay, it's Kek Gula Hangus. It's basically a cake made with caramelized sugar. Seriously so good. Made it for the first time - will be making it again.

This is how we have been feeling lately. Sleepy. sleepy. sleepy. :)

  • I have a layout to share, but seeing that I started this post yesterday before dinner and it's now almost 6am, *and i still have the headache from yesterday* I think I'll pass and share the layout some other time. Maybe together with the completed goody bags? A girl can dream. Somebody need to kick my butt to get those completed today. LOL.
  • But first, I wanna visit my friends! I'll see you soon! *hugs*

Love these photos. When I see your prints I can tell just how dark my house it- I can never get that much detail in Hipstamatic indoor shots. Maybe the lens is different for iTouch cameras- (??) It seems the exposure latitude in your shots is consistently wider than mine- lots of great tones and color gradiations. Anyway thanks for stopping by my blog- I still can't get over seeing your name by a comment. Let's all of us to a Totally 80's Dude blog link party! :)

Diana said...

The food. The FOOD. Ack I want some spicy food now, like I always do when you do these awesome 365 posts.
Thanks for your super sweet comment on my blog today. It made my day :-)

Welcome home missy. Reading your posts is like spending time with an old friend, seriously. So...did you find the quilt squares? I had to show my dh the photo of your dh's dinner. He laughed and asked if he was a large man. To which, I laughed and told him about the marathon he ran. lol Bridesmaids: did you laugh your butt off? I did. I want some chicken curry right now, that looks so good. I love the photos of the market, and that adorable rainbow dress your dd is wearing in the photo with your dad. Nidhi looks so content in the 'sleepover' photo, what a sweetheart. I love that you linked the Wikipedia definition of Rambutan,. I'd like to grow that in my garden, it's so bright and beautiful. Thanks for all the pix, loved taking them all in. Hope you have a great weekend.

Yum! That chicken curry is calling my name :-)
That font you liked is called Learning Curve. It's free at Dafont and I use it as a web font with Typekit.
Isn't it gorgeous?
Kisses.

Learned something new today: Rambutan! Don't think Ive seen these before, hmm! I love and sort of need my sleep in the afternoon, but try to avoid them because you feel like a truck has hit you when you wake up!!

Anna Sigga said...

Ohh my word - Rambutan is my fave fruit and I have never seen so many at one place before! It is rarely available here so when I see it I grab some just for me! ;o)
Delish!!
