This afternoon morm and bifi aiyi came to town. Randall and I have a feeling about a house (I know, I also thought we stopped looking, but here we go again) and we wanted morm to have a look. I'm going to leave the house talk at that though, don't want to hype it or jinx it or make it more than what it's supposed to be.
After the house, we headed back to the house where morm whipped us up a feast. I told morm about cindy's potsticker shower and she was more than a little inspired. Samshrew and chris stopped by too and morm put them all to work. She had us all making potstickers while she made pork belly Taiwan style. She also used two knives at once. Chop chop!
Before she left, samshrew had morm try on my glasses. The peanut gallery says they look better on her than me. Gwah gwah.geoloc
Morm's house holds a lot of hidden treasures. Some of them, like the
seemingly overgrown grass which is actually lemongrass stalks, are
right under your noses. While others, the usual suspects like jewelry,
are squirreled away in the weirdest places.
This evening samshrew, morm, and I went on a hunt. I ended up with a
few nice things and a huge mountain of lemongrass. Afterwards we
helped morm eat a cheesecake even though she's not supposed to.
Somedays just end better that way.
My parents live a ridiculous lifestyle with two houses in the same greater area. One bad economy later they are consolidating to one. Naturally this means we (their children and their children's unfortunate significant others) had to move all their furniture from one place to another.
We've been at it since 11am (leaving our house at 9am) and finally finished the last load for the day.
I was hoping to snap a pic of all us exhausted on the couch, but we're too tired to find the couch. Instead I snapped this pic of randall, sushi (who is along for the ride), and myself while everyone else was busy assembling shelves.
ps. these are the curtains i had as a child and i hated them then and i hate them even more now.
