I never thought that after that last post, I would be completely occupied with almost no time to spare, including Instagram, where I posted almost daily back then. Everyday has been almost the same thing: planning at work, stay late at work, planning for a Showcase presentation in December where tons of visitors are coming to our school, and cooking. By the time I’m home, for the first time EVER, I just want to do… nothing. Sit back, watch TV, and binge on some kind of snack, fruit, or dessert. What is going onnnnn?!?
Adult life. That’s what. And before you know it, kids. Mortgage. Car loans. Ha! It’s not depressing at all though. It’s quite the opposite – exciting and full of adventures. But part of a reality check for me has been how precious time is. There’s just not enough time in the day to do everything I want and get the rest that I need. I still always try to make time for family and friends though – thanks to those who always reach out to me. I always appreciate it. I post because I’m motivated by all of you who visit everyday – thank you for being a continuous supporter.
So to share with you things that are not so tedious and more exciting happening, here are a few of the more cherished moments in the past few weeks 🙂
Lots of home-cooking! Not so great on the variety, but we try to fancy it up with some simple healthy ingredients. In this case, it was spare ribs on top of pumpkin with a side of Chinese broccoli.
My co-teacher Rachel and I built our own rug thanks to my friend Jeanne! She collected some carpet tiles that were meant to be thrown away. I rode my first Uber to pick them up and a few weeks later, duct-taped them together with my co-teacher in the classroom. It was so much easier than I thought! The only hard part was carrying them – they were quite heavy!
Hubby and two friends brought me to see the latest Cirque du Soleil, “Kurios.” It’s incredibly amazing to watch such talented people perform. I’m a sucker for those kind of performances (and one for all kinds of talent). It keeps me on the edge of my seat! We also saw one of the world’s top ten smallest women. She was fantastic!
Lastly, if I can name three of my favorite things, it would be foliage, sunsets, and fireworks. i can stare for HOURS … and so we did. We climbed up Storm King Mountain with some new friends and took in the breathtaking view of New York’s foliage. The weekend after, we did some bike-riding around Central Park to see the foliage in the city, except I’ve had no phone for a while so I have not been able to capture photos. My phone decided to take a swim in a puddle… just lovely!
As always, thanks for reading – hope you all have a fantastic week! xoxo
