The house is finally slowing down! S is reading and settling herself in the night before the new week begin. It has been a full busy weekending for us! Yesterday morning, we decided to go on a nice Saturday morning drive, but the drive extended a little longer and became a trip to the near by city. We enjoyed the drive, the lunch and the talk together; just us!  Sometimes, it is nice to go without plans and S surely loved the little mini get away, so am i!

I meant to tell you all "Have a sweet day" on Valentine's day, but ended up spent 5 hours in the afternoon and submitted two applications that was due at 5 that day! It was a little unreal two applications in one afternoon, but surely made the day went quicker and felt accomplished! I hope you had a "sweet" day! Surely, it was sweet and cozy here~

At 6:45a.m. S greeted me in her sleepy voice, " Happy Valentine's Day, mama" then she fell back to sleep.

At 7:10a.m. S greeted me in her awoke voice, "Happy Valentine's Day, mama" and followed by a huge HUG!

At 7:45a.m. S greeted me in her ready to get off the car voice, " Have a nice Valentine's day, mama and I LUV you very much".. off she went...

At 4:45p.m., S greeted me in her super voice when I went pick her up, " Did you have a great day, mama? what did you do?? Did you miss me?" " Indeed, very much", I replied.

At 7:00p.m. S greet me in her light voice when we finished our supper, " I had a very good day and did you like my little treat I prepared for you". It was more than just cozy, I tell you.

Do you love Kales? The first time, I heard about Kale was use it for making healthy veggie drink, but I second the idea. Let me share our Kale Chip recipe with you. S loves them and asks me often if I could make them for her. It is one of the healthy treats she loves and enjoys. We would go through a bunch of Kale in one weekending afternoon and I am sure you'll love it as well.

Kale Chip
- One bunch of Kale, gentle washed and dry with dish towel
- Take off the Kale leaves and tear in smaller piece, so it would be easier to taste later
- Spare them in "lighter" baking pan.
- 1-2 tablespoons of olive oil; toss with the Kale leaves
- Dash sea salt in the baking pan
- Make sure the Kale is well coated with olive oil

Preheat oven at 400 degree and bake 15-17 minutes.  Enjoy~

This afternoon, I pulled out some of the unfinished projects and made a small list of what can be accomplish in next few days or next few weeks. A little organization for the sewing space and read a few books to remind myself, relax! The dinning room table is occupied by the fabric, tools, books, more fabric, and more tools at this moment; yes, clutter!!

The weekending is almost close to the end and a new week is approaching us! More applications are waiting for me and I do keep myself up and think positively now and then.  Thank you So much for all your encouragements and thoughts! It is going to be a little while before I hear anything back, so until then, bare with me~
