Hairs cut! I look like myself again. (But I am going to suffer while it's cold. Beauty is pain, baby.)

today is fired.

So far today:
  • my chai spilled all over the car before I could drink any.
  • D left his math book & homework (which had been less than an inch from his backpack) at home, so I had to go drive it in
  • The smell of bacon is making my stomach turn, and S made a whole batch of it so the entire upstairs is pretty much off-limits.
  • The bacon offering, which was designed to increase the staying power of the childrens' breakfasts, was not a hit.
  • I had to drive S into work for reasons, so I've barely had any a chance to work this morning -- and I have at this point *three* projects past deadline.
  • And I have a haircut in an hour, and an appointment in Seattle in the early evening, so basically no chances to sit at the computer for longer than 45 minutes until bedtime. (Designing books works far better if I have a big enough chunk of time to wrap my head around the gestalt of it.)
It's only noon.  I would really, really like this to improve.

hello snow

Our front yard is so pretty! (The road is so ugly, my schedule is now wrecked.)

It started snowing about 6, after the decisions about closures/late starts have to be made, so no slow start for us. It was legitimately a shock to wake up and look out on 2 inches of snow, and scrambling for snow gear on top of all the we've-forgotten-how-to-get-ready that happens the first day back after every vacation was ridiculous and stressy. It's still going, but it's up to 35 so I think it will melt.

(anyone know how to make ifttt instagram recipes use downsized versions? That's just so big...)

Girls' Night Out part 2

My tie clips finally got a tie to live on! And I am debuting the rather epic large pendant with a star-filled frame. I am within hunger distance of both @angry_fish_edmonds jams and delectable truffles from Flourless Goodies; we'll see how long I make it without nomming.

Wing Luke Museum field trip

Today was the roll-your-own vacation #fieldtrip to the I.D., mostly the Wing Luke Museum but of course also Uwajimaya & Kinokuniya Bookstore.

The Bruce Lee exhibit was awesome, the Internment Camp exhibit was sobering, and there were so many interesting things to look at; I think there is a chance that the desire to learn embroidery that all the amazing textiles elicited might survive? So I need to find my kit.

At the bookstore, we did *not* go home with figurines from O's favorite anime, but it was a near thing. New volumes of One Punch Man we didn't even try to resist. We didn't make it to dumplings; that will have to be next time.

fermenting

 I went with B & A and assorted crew to the "Naked Spa" yesterday and went into the restaurant there for the first time, which is Korean food (because Korean Spa, natch) and now I want ALL THE PICKLED RADISH.

So I've been looking at inexpensive fermenting equipment on Amazon. Would I follow through on this? I dunno. But I do love pickled radish, and pickled ginger, and good sauerkraut...  which are not actually that easy to find.

This popped up in my pinterest and looks really cool (very moderne design, supposed to be super easy to use) but the amazon reviews are a bit mixed, while this super basic "thing you stick on top a wide mouth mason jar" has consistently good reviews, and appeals to my "not another big gadget to store" instincts.

(This microwave popper is close to defeating my "another gadget to store" instincts; we do the paper bag thing now, but I have a pretty uneven popping rate and the butter is really erratic, and making popcorn be a trivial snack for the kids to produce would be a big win) This entry was originally posted at http://jeliza.dreamwidth.org/983481.html.

Update from Oddmall

Hail the emergency booth sitter @drakemonger! Really enjoying Oddmall today, especially since I am right next to the fabulous @tm_originals -- her stuff is on the bottom row. In the middle row we have the shocking sight of me in full make-up at 6 am. With a smoky eye, even. Plus cards and prints and #jewelry of course.
