Gingerbread house!

Haha! My mom forwarded me a recipe from my grandma to make a gingerbread house. Apparently the same recipe was used '94 and '95 to make one of my in-famous gingerbread houses. So funny! Old-school torn out page from one of my grandma's magazines at that time.

Unplugging myself or something.

Days like this are both good and bad. I wake up, way later than I planned. Feel like someone hit me in the head. Completely unplugged myself from being focused and going on super speed. It's like my whole body knows it's Saturday.

I get nothing done, I don't want to do anything. I just do random things. Looking things through, checking things, talking on my phone.... Just enjoying the moment of not having anyone saying my name again and again and again and giving me 3 million things to do: "Linda, can you do this?", "Why is this not done?", "When will this be done?", "Can you come into this meeting?", "Did this get sent out?", "Why is this like this?"....blah blah. All these questions, stress, speed, speed, SPEED. Don't get me wrong here, I love speed but when things just start to pile up without control at work and we get pushed to absolute MAX my head feels it. Soon I feel that I'm going to reply: " I just got two arms so until I grow 14 arms, this has to take the time it takes." Period.

Whatever. Things goes in waves. Right now things are UP HERE though. It's not even funny. Lunch? That's not even on the schedule.

We got a new freelancer at work that is Japanese btw. (Guess if I already started to get to know her, haha... Japanese person! Of course!). She came up to me and my co-worker when we were talking Friday, saying with her very Japanese accent: "It's A LOT of things to do here." We just looked at her, smiled and said: "Welcome to the club!"

Spice up your life on a Sunday!

In Park Slope on a Sunday evening at Steinhof - things look like this! Spice up your life in November with some hang out!
From left: Fabulous Kirsten, Me making a funny face & Skinny Costa Rican Man Gabie. LOL.
Kelly is the photographer, and 3 other people attending the random Sunday gathering are not in the photo. Mushie, the big doggie, unfortunately did not attend. She stayed at home sleeping with all her fur.

Roosevelt Island Tram..

Took the tram from Manhattan to Roosevelt Island and back again. Never been to this little island located between Manhattan and Queens. Pretty calm island.... They did have a Starbucks, a Duane Reade and a regular grocery store though, lol. Took a walk in the dark and shot some nice photos. Had some great talks and a nice snack.

That tram is a bit scary though! You're up in the air in that little box, hanging on a wire and you see the cold and dark water right under you. Oh well, at least I could say that I have taken the tram now... Mission accomplished! : )

Queensboro Bridge and Manhattan Skyline...
