Thanksgiving 2009

I was home alone for Thanksgiving Day.

I was not sad or felt lonely. I have mastered the art of being alone. I am perfectly fine.
I entertained myself. I was very productive. I spent a few nights working until the sun came up. It was an enjoyable weekend.

I made both turkey & ham for myself. I spent about 3 hours in the kitchen. Turkey was very tender. I glazed the ham. I watched Twilight Zone Marathon as I work in the kitchen.

Dinner came out good. I enjoyed it very much.

I had so much food leftover that I vacuum-packed half of all my food and put them in the freezer.

Thanksgiving Day

Day after Thanksgiving – Leftover

Just when I thought I would spend the entire weekend alone, one of my wedding photography clients invited me to their family dinner on Saturday. I took pictures of their wedding a few years ago.

I went to their house with a jar of “Chocolates of the World” as a gift. They had a big family. There were about 20 people. I used my usual charm, and we got along fine. It was a good time.

Although I spent most of my 4 days weekend alone, Thanksgiving 2009 turned out to be a memorable one.

I had a good time. It was so much fun working on my projects. It’s good to be alive.

My First Sewing Kit

This is the first sewing kit (from Michael’s).

It looks pathetic. I spent less than $6.00 in total.

I spent 15 minutes fixing some stuff. I figured, If common house-wives can do this, then I should be able to do this.

I quickly learned some tricks on my own.

I am afraid I will get too excited and end up buying a sewing machine.

I need a pincushion, a better needle case, a pair of small scissors, a better sewing case, etc…

Single man's first Sewing Kit

Today, after work, I did 6 loads of wash and put together my first sewing kit. It’s getting too late. I better fix a quick dinner before start ironing a mountain of shirts and pants.

I am so tired…

Love my new sewing kit. 

Salute to Single Men in the World

Here’s for all the (poor) single men in the world

I never go out on Saturday night. (any night of the week). I have things to do. I am busy.

It was a Saturday night 10pm when I got ready to burn midnight oil.

I took a shower and went out for quick shopping. I went to Ralphs, Del Taco, and a donut shop. I wanted some donuts to go with my coffee.

I brewed 100% Kona coffee at 11 pm. I hope to stay awake all night and get things done. I have a lot of items on my to-do list. I’ll be working all day tomorrow as well. I work more during the weekends than I do on weekdays. The weekend is the time I focus on my business (and a secret project).

Here’s my salute to all the single men in the world.
Nobody gives you credit for what you do.  But your days will come (I hope)…

Mental Note: Clean up the coffee area

It’s now past 8:00 AM Sunday morning. I think I’m going to rest now.
