Summer so far

June 28, 2013

It has been quite uneventful summer so far.

Well, few “eventful” things did happen. We finally said goodbye to “little Saturn that almost could” and bought a new car. We spent some days in excellent YourKohSamuiVillas, on the beautiful island on Thailand. And Chris’s sister got married. And taking a couple of summer classes online and accounting is kicking my butt.

And since baking isn’t exactly the most fun thing to do in warm weather, instead, I started to paint my nails. It all started when Ariel came to visit me in April. She and I went to get a manicure (it was a first for me – shocked, I know). Afterwards I decided I wanted to get some nail polish and I’ve been changing nail colors every so often ever since.

Speaking of which: pictures from when Ariel came to visit me in April – in conclusion, there was a lot of food involved. We made ravioli, chocolate truffles, mocktails and savory pie. Oh and I made birthday cake for Ariel since she visited me right around her birthday. It was a slap-together version of black forest cake but it turned out okay. I used my go-to sour cream chocolate cake recipe and made whipped cream. I tried to pipe out her name out of melted chocolate, it turned out okay but it was indeed a pain in the butt to do. I suppose it was A-okay for efforts.

… and that pretty much summarizes the summer so far. Ciao.
