I know it’s March … but I’m so behind with editing photos. Here are a few snaps from January.
Hanging on the lamp by my bedside is this quote I love from the Dalai Lama: “We are visitors on this planet, we are here for ninety or one hundred years at the very most. During that period, we must try to do something good, something useful, with our lives. If you contribute to other people’s happiness, you will find the true goal, the true meaning of life.”
My Dad picked out these flowers for his 86th birthday in January.
Dad’s birthday cake was from Wegman’s – fruitcake that everyone seems to like.
My parents spent all day making this Vietnamese fish noodle soup “Hủ Tiếu Cá” for us. It was delicious! Better than the ones made in restaurants for sure!
Max taking a winter nap. I always put a blanket on him. My friend thinks Max’s fur is enough to keep him warm. I beg to differ. My Mom knitted this blanket for me years ago. It’s so cozy and soft.
Hygge light in the living room. The warmer the lighting, the more hyggelig. I’m a fanatic about hyggelig lighting. 🙂
The park in winter time. No leaves yet the trees are still so beautiful against the grey sky.
For my birthday last year, my sister sent me a host of beautiful pens to play with – and this cool pen organizer too. Thanks sis!
When you spot beautiful sunlight in your home, you take a photo. 🙂
Bowtie pasta for dinner and why not make a vlog while you’re at it? 🙂
I love Fuji cameras. Once I tried one, it’s hard to go back to anything else. Canon is my 2nd favorite … but truly … I’m a Fuji shooter at heart now.
Went on a hike with my cousins … first time ever we hiked together. It was so fun!
After the hike, my cousins made us a delicious dinner starting with this fresh, yummy guacamole!
Purple potatoes with veggies … homemade by chef Charlie. Beautiful!
My cousin Charlie is one of the best real-life chefs I know!! Seriously! His steaks are amazing!
Snowy just had cataract surgery. Poor baby.
So far I’ve been good with uploading vlogs at least once a week, but then it’s only January. I hope I can keep up for the rest of the year. Here it is … life so far in 2021.
