SHOP. — Christmas shopping for my family and friends has begun. Now, since I will be deployed to Guam for Christmas this year, I have to plan ahead. Just a few more weeks here before that sunny island has a new temporary resident! I had decent luck with my nieces’ gifts, and took care of my sister and brother-in-law. I still have my parents and in-laws to buy for, and will most likely call it quits after that. I already completed thirty Christmas cards to mail out right before I leave, but I need to get photos printed to enclose with them. Lots of great events happened this year… and some not so great!
FALL FEAST. — Last evening was Frank and Erica’s much-anticipated annual Fall Feast. Erica skillfully prepared a decadent five course dining experience in her home for eight of us. Each course had a delicious integration of fall season flavors, such as ginger cocktails, pumpkin cumin soup, pear salad with raspberry vinaigrette dressing, and sweet potato medallions. The company was fantastic; cocktails & conversation continued well into the evening. Luckily, Daylight Savings Time had us “fall back” this morning, allowing an extra hour of sleep… so I didn’t feel quite so lazy getting up late today.
Sleep each morning till after ten
Then the answer is yes
I want to be bad!
- Clock 90 hours on The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
- Get a tan
- Finish learning “The Chrysanthemum” on piano
- Long endurance pilates action
- Finish reading The Seven Pillars of Wisdom (T.E. Lawrence)
- Learn how to scuba dive
- Eat new kinds of sushi
- Learn how to make a serious Mai Tai
With most of these being pretty lousy and not exactly what they want us to put down, I’m out of ideas. Do you have anything to add?
TUMBLR. — I’m not sure if you are all aware, but I do have a tumblr. I used to post all my vintage inspirations on my blog back in the day, but the postings became too numerous. It tends to clutter up this blog; the intention was to keep this one very clean and standardized. I use tumbles to document clothing, people or ideas that I feel I need to document because my brain is out of room. If you are interested in what inspires me, head on over. If you like what you see, follow! If you have an inspiration blog, please share with me! & if you haven’t noticed, I’m trying a new format for my blog with paragraph summaries. We’ll see how this pans out! Tell me what you think… about anything. I like getting feedback from online friends!
