Penitentiary Glen Reservation

The closest I have ever been to a bald eagle – what a majestic creature! This guy was injured when he was a juvenile and even after his wing recovered, he could no longer fly. He made some high-pitch sound after noticing a couple of turkey vultures flying free around the area…..I feel so sad […]

Happy Easter!

What a gorgeous day! Happy Easter to everyone who is celebrating. Here’s one extremely belated post – on the day (back in late February) when Keith bought me the miniature orchid, he bought hydroponic tulips as well, knowing that my favorite spring flowers are tulips. It was a little underwhelming at first, hahaha because they […]

Beautiful Orchids

Came across this passage on Facebook – love it! Note: photo is my own from a couple of years ago…..looking forward to spring! “Drink water from the spring where horses drink. The horse will never drink bad water. Lay your bed where the cat sleeps. Eat the fruit that has been touched by a worm. […]

Chinese New Year Decorations

When I was young, I used to think Chinese New Year decorations were so gaudy (I guess I still do but to a lesser degree), lol! But look at me now – we just replaced the Christmas wreath on our front door with this last weekend and I’m hoping to get some lanterns up soon. […]

Happy Weekend!

It’s Friday! Yay! My hygge for a cold winter evening – snuggled under a warm blanket on the couch with a classic! Lol. Have a wonderful weekend! It’ll be a short weekend for me since I’m working tomorrow but I can’t complain since I had Monday off. :)

Cookbooks Galore

Another of my hygge – cookbooks! This is the stack of books on our coffee table that I’m currently actively reading right now, lol. For those of you who don’t know, I’m a cookbook addict! I own enough cookbooks that if I don’t ever buy another copy, I would not run out of cookbooks to […]

Jumbo Squishmallows

Saw this guy at Costco just now – I was actually very tempted to get it, lol…..he was massive and he just looked so cherry! Isn’t he absolutely adorable? ❤️
