i have a 4.0 GPA and even though i completely (totally) understand that this will matter not at all once i finish school and that it really doesn't matter all that much right now...i am kinda focused on keeping it.

i can't stand having things open like cupboard doors, closet doors, drawers, boxes...if it won't close correctly because something is sticking out...i have to fix it. to the point that i will get out of bed and fix it. 

i love to eat things like tofu stir fry with brown rice (tonight's dinner) but i feel VERY granola when i say things like that out loud. also goes for recycling, composting and using reusable shopping bags. 
b.t.w. and f.y.i. it is much easier/faster to make a big batch of brown rice at the beginning of the week and keep it in the fridge cause it takes eons to cook. 

i know hot to spell words like methamphetamine and Saskatchewan but today realized that i didn't know how to spell Oklahoma.

this is my first ever "loaf" of bread. since i started this whole "yeast baking" thing i've made rolls, bagels, pretzels, and freeform loaves but a loaf in a loaf pan was somehow neglected until last weekend when i made this lovely, if i do say so myself, loaf to go with some home made chicken soup (with brown rice).

i sometimes (like now) procrastinate doing homework.

I've been creating:

and cooking

and de-christmasing my house

School starts back up on Tuesday so I guess i should just own the fact that i've been reveling in not having many commitments since 2011 started. And i loved it!

Christmas Cats

Every time that I break out my 50 mm fixed lens I wonder why I don't bring it out more often. 
These little cuties loved playing under the tree (and batting the ornaments, and chasing them all around, and maybe breaking things).
We had a lovely Christmas and i'm filled with hope for a positive new year. 
Cheers for 2011!
