Good Saturday morning and hello December! Welcome to a weekend of #weekendcoffeeshare. What are you standing at the door for? Come on in and have a cup of steamy hot coffee, tea, cocoa, or whatever with me.
First of all, I’d like to apologize for not joining you last week. Honestly, the week was a blur, even now it still is a blur. All I can remember is getting super duper excited for Thanksgiving, the 5-day long weekend, finally getting a stand-mixer for my kitchen, and going to Bear Lake.
Maybe the reason for the blurriness was from the lack of rest. You would think not having to go to work means I get to sleep longer hours.
Not when one living with someone (like my mother) who makes phone calls to China at 5 in the morning and shouts to the point everyone within a mile can hear, that is if they can understand Chinese.
In other news, I successfully made bread last week though it took me longer than expected because my mom chose to give me the angry glare and a lecture criticizing my bread-making technique. That is the main reason of why I don’t like baking or cooking when she’s around. She criticizes everything and won’t eat anything anyone has touched with his/her hand. Sorry but you must knead bread dough by hand.
If we were having coffee, I would apologize to my readers for barely keeping up the blog this week. It has been a hectic week at work. When you work for an international company, taking one day off means double the workload. So imagine taking 5 days off from work. I played catch-up for three days as online orders and physical mail consistently poured in.
Then when I get home, I run on the treadmill until hopefully my body starts burning off some of my internal fat. After dinner, I retreat to my room, almost-feverishly trying to salvage as many of long-exposure photos as I can with Adobe Lightroom. As the result, by the time I finally got the chance to read some of your blogs, I’m yawning like crazy.
I will try to slow down in doing photo-processing next week but no guarantees. Here are a few of my favorites I managed to fix with Lightroom. The problem with the original photo are that it’s far too over-exposed and the white balance is off.
If we were having coffee or whatever hot beverage of your desire, I would tell you thank you for dropping by and I will once again try my hardest to come back in 6 or 7 days.
