enfin's reality

snowflakes

6:42am, discovered that classes were cancelled.  went back to bed.  10:05am, hit snooze, went back to bed.  11:18am, trout stepped on my stomach, awoke to a whiteout preventing a good gauge of the effects of the storm on my end.  laid in bed, morose, wistful, until midday when a returned from a short trek to the gym.

throbbing headaches, lacking motivation, attempting to get moving six hours too late.  two days left of the week- thank goodness for weekends.  home interview tomorrow evening, then a stitch and bitch in so. po. with a few fellow yogis.  friday renders two quizzes- latin & english, a late night trip to local 188, and proper rest.  as the weekend crawls forward, i have worthwhile plans.  a good bye dinner for meg on saturday evening, tea & scones on sunday with cora, and then dinner plans with three lovely ladies later on that night.  monday= relaxation, homework, sleeping & cleaning.

reading, doing homework, ichat dates, and long bath. + smiles tomorrow.

sans une tete

it’s been quite the weekend- rather long, beginning friday at 10am ending in about 7 hours.  it goes without saying, i always have a nice time on memorial day.  lovely things that happened included, seeing miss bela b and having a brief relapse in old habits, standard baguettes with mon petit frere followed by vin blanc and a late night trip to dairy queen, splurging on a never worn, perfect fit lily pulitzer white cable knit sweater, minding my caffine at l’arabica, not sleeping, making meringue and listening to the ultimate tunes.

summer is rapidly approaching, i’m trying to lose ten pounds by eating yoghurt, berires, and small helpings of protein, but i doubt i will.  almond milk is my h20, i suppose i should try and fix that.  my camera has run out of batteries and the others are out of film, and i am out of all monetary funds.  i’m really excited for this upcoming week to end- and sort of begin, because i get to see quite a few people who i haven’t been able to enjoy the company of in quite a while.  with the weekend comes a sigh of relief, a clothes swap, and an endless study session. exams begin the 8th and end the 11th.  then i’m off to dc where i will be for a mere five days, however, i plan on visiting cambridge on the way back.  end of the year celebration is scheduled on june 11th at bresca at nine. reservation for two, and mr. i will be accompanying me i presume. due dates are diminishing and my school sac is growing lighter by the day. oh what a joy to be this close to liberty. highlights of the upcoming week: darkroom processing, farmer’s mkt, west end picnic with liliiiiy, milkshakes and car-ride with camjones, and sharing moments with miss bela.

ratatat is rockin’ my world as of now. experiencin’ them springtime blues.
farmer’s market? pretty mint. cinco de mayo? everyone is a little mexican at heart. it’s thursday already, and let’s just say that i couldn’t be more elated.

Suddenly, from all the green around you,
something-you don’t know what-has disappeared;
you feel it creeping closer to the window,
in total silence. From the nearby wood

you hear the urgent whistling of a plover,
reminding you of someone’s Saint Jerome:
so much solitude and passion come
from that one voice, whose fierce request the downpour

will grant. The walls, with their ancient portraits, glide
away from us, cautiously, as though
they weren’t supposed to hear what we are saying.

And reflected on the faded tapestries now;
the chill, uncertain sunlight of those long
childhood hours when you were so afraid.

Rainer Maria Rilke

and enfin may just in fact, love you.

ouah… le printemps!

spring means:

the cooking blues.


homemade gnocchi: potatoes, salt, flour


pinched and ready for the pot of hot water


brown butter, white wine, and kale and mushroom sauce


really good white wine, popovers, and salad


the finished gnocchi!

it’s been a while.. i do admit that.  this past week got the best of me, not because i was busy, i just got distracted half the time.  i also had a case of the cooking blues which took up more time of each night than originally predicted.  pictured below are some of the many items i’ve prepared this past week!


oh hi fresh veggies- i love you kale and celery.


chicken kale soup, with crispy rosemary parmesean bread


red plum and black berry butter tart!


base of soup

 as you can see… i wasn’t lying about my cooking escapades.  i know that i have been promising my story entitled her and him for quite sometime, maybe even three weeks, but the ending has been really difficult to decide upon.  i’ve even considered publishing it in installments.  perhaps that’s what i’ll do.  i will be blogging regularly as of now.  today its pretty cool outside, although the sun makes it rather deceiving.  i’d love to go for a bikeride and maybe even a picnic, but seeing as the time and temp building reads 38 degrees, i don’t think i’ll do either.  maybe a trip to go thrifting, even though i should be saving all my cash for my trip to quebec in the next couple of weeks.  monday marks the start of the 2010 tennis season.  i don’t really feel like playing but i know that i should, so that’s what i’ll do.  i have a lot of work to do with buy local and with port city music hall, so i think tennis will be on the back-burner until matches start.  i’m also hoping to vacation to cambridge/boston next weekend.  it’d be oh so lovely. i’m really hungry right now, and trout is sitting with me.  this spring has been alright so far. seeing as the weather’s been nice…but i forgot to tell you! thursday it snowed.  isn’t that terrible? by the end of the weekend i’m hoping her and him will be posted, along with whatever sunday scribblings posts as their 208th topic.

give me some ideas for how to spend my weekend.  i guess i could go take photos.

tis friday! i survived this past week sucessfully (through means of watching its always sunday in philidelphia and eating at norms) meredith is in portland at this hour (i believe!) and i am about to start my friday night date [not with a person, *haha* with Trout of course] and we’re going to sip tea and watch the third men and of course we’re going to listen to bon iver and sufjan stevens! tomorrow begins the art program and m is coming over.

i am feeling: really hopeful (as in high spirits), happy, tired, warm, and fortunate.  I miss Ari Gold and I’m glad that Tom Waits happens to be playing in the background of this room!
