1. Breakfast. In order to prevent the basher from using his shirt as a napkin, I've removed the temptation. He eats shirtless now. 2. The view from behind the piano chair. My dad made this chair for my mom as an engagement present. 3. Breakdancing. What else? 4. Preschool in the rain. 5. My completed marathon training schedule. 403 miles down. My first marathon is in 2 days! 6. I'm enjoying what my bangs are doing these days. 7. The punk loves it when the Mahers come for their piano lessons. He gets to commandeer one of them while her sister has her lesson with me. 8. Tricycle and bare feet 9. My newest piano student, Lauriannah. She is delightful. 10. Dinner! Turkey with mozzarella, basil, cheddar, and honey dijon, and homemade tomato soup. 11. Bedtime routine 12. Folding laundry: undies for a tiny bum.
1. Grocery shopping 2. Discovery Gateway's tiny house 3. Discovery Gateway's vegetable garden 4. Working during quiet time. This is the front of my very pretty accordion folder. 5. Tomato soup for dinner 6. I love having my own basil plant 7. Oatmeal chocolate chip cookies 8. My bun is almost bigger than my head 9. I tried to take a couple photos in my grandpa's hallway mirror, but this accidental shot turned out to be my favorite 10. My grandma and grandpa hosted the Gifted Music School (whose full scholarship division I manage) for a concert in their home. We were preparing for our first tour, which is why I didn't get around to posting August's 12of12 for a month. Busy, busy! 11. My brother and his lovely girlfriend Paula came to the concert. Afterwards, they told me that they GOT MARRIED two days before! We are all so happy! 12. Valley lights.
My name is Chinese, but my hair is red. When I was young, the worst thing you could call me was a redhead. It was "golden," thank you very much. I am a full-time mama to the punk and the basher. I am a violinist with Strings of Elegance, a private piano teacher and math tutor, and an Assistant Director for The Gifted Music School. My violin and piano were both made in 1910, and I inherited both from different grandparents. I have an outie belly button. My man looks hot in his "old man" hats. I enjoy sushi, hot tubbing, and getting caught in the rain.
