The springtime is green

It’s June! It’s sunny! It’s warm! There’s no snow, and everything is fantastic and green! Here, let me show you:

Baby raccoons, spiderweb wisps and a bout of archery. I found this dragonfly larvae husk by the pond, next to the waterlillies and tadpoles. The dandelions are everywhere.

February brings sunshine and snowstorms

I’m looking forward to spring – so here are some of the foods I’ve been eating to help keep my spirits up! It’s a collection of my dinner, some dishes from a Chinese New Year party, and my father’s cooking. For dessert, there’s a fried sesame ball filled with red bean paste and a haiku I wrote on a styrofoam takeout container.

Remember November

Here comes another photospam – this time mostly of food! It’s one of the reasons Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays. Below, find good food, cute kids, a jenga game that ended when no more moves were possible, handmade pumpkin pie (from a pumpkin!), an assortment of pies (strawberry rhubarb, blueberry, pecan), Dynasty Warriors, a snowy backyard and some delicious Greek food from a nearby cafe.

One hundred men caught by endless passion

Some things that I have been enjoying recently:

Classic Human Anatomy, by Valerie L. Winslow. I love this book. It’s broken up into sections like “The Language of Anatomy”, “The Head, Face and Neck”, and “The Torso”, and is full of lovely illustrations and clearly labeled diagrams showing bones, muscles and how movement affects them. Terms like ‘Humerus’ include pronunciation, the term’s origin (often Latin) and synonyms.

Animal flashcards, found in my parent’s living room. It’s about time I got back to expanding my vocabulary, and I think the illustrations are hilarious! That hedgehog looks so goofy!

Finding things is fun! I pick things up off the street all the time. Pictured are some of my most recent acquisitions. I’d probably make a very good magpie, though none of these is particularly shiny. Not really sure what to do with… any of them, really, but I’m sure I’ll think of something.

found

Title from the song New Found Land by Leaves’ Eyes. It’s about a crew of Norse men, braving the sea and storms and hardship in their quest to discover new land. I hope we can all find something to be as passionate about in our everyday lives!

Rabbits, crabs and vampires – worst crabcakes ever?

Today I drew a bunch of rabbits, learned you can buy crabs from vending machines in China, and beat my vampiric nemesis in a chess match.

Another Friday

Oatmeal: still rather mediocre. I added cranberries and lots of brown sugar, but I’m still just not feeling it. I’ll have to try it again sometime using the stove top instead of microwaving it.

Life: Feeling a bit restless. It’s not that there’s not stuff to do (there’s always stuff to do!), I’m just tired of doing it in the same place. Outside, everything is changing: fall colors, leaves falling, temperatures dropping – and I feel like I’m stuck standing still. I want to change too! Other than that… Mini’s banned me from working on my newest hobby of clay until Monday since I recently injured my wrist after working with it for a prolonged period, which is kind of a bummer. Been listening to a lot of NPR, and absolutely loving our Dark Sun D&D campaign. It’s thrillingly brutal, and every time I’m half expecting my character to die.

Music: I still like Linkin Park, and I don’t care who knows it! I’m currently listening to a playlist with their song Robot Boy, Vienna Teng’s Drought, and Siobhan Donaghy’s Coming Up For Air. Just in the mood for pretty music, I guess.
