Salaattia seitsemänä päivänä

Rakastan salaattia. Syön erilaisia salaatteja ehkä kerran pari kuussa. Tämä korjattakoon, siis seuraavan viikon aikana valmistan ja syön erilaisen salaatin joka päivä. Aion kokeilla uusia reseptejä (vinkkejä ja ehdotuksia saa laittaa kommenttiboksiin) ja opetella tekemään jotain mitä en ole aikaisemmin tehnyt.

Tämän päivän salaatti on oikeastaan jämäkasa kaikenlaista: jääsalaattia, kirsikkatomaatteja, punasipulia, kurkkua, kananmunaa ja vuohenjuustolla täytettyä herkkusientä. Oli hyvää vaikka näyttääkin ehkä vähän epämääräiseltä. Ja unohdin salaatinkastikkeenkin.  Vuohenjuustoherkkusienet olivat pettymys, eivät maistuneet oikein miltään. 

Ps: Se tunne, kun kaivat hyllystä levyn jota exäsi nimitti "intialaiseksi ulinaksi" ja tajuat että voit nyt luukuttaa sitä niin paljon kuin haluat. Terveisiä vaan A:lle jos luet tätä :)

Just a minute on September to be okay without getting everything I want right away

Watching...cats sleeping

Reading...Hyperion. I'm stuck with this book!

Listening...Depeche Mode and Joan Baez

Craving for...Caesar salad

Loving...the season

Writing...and doodling when I should be drawing and painting the phone, hearing how things are on the other side of the world. T is in South Korea right now and I miss him

What I'm watching...from TV

When I was a kid I rarely watched TV. My favorite series were Moomins, Alfred J. Kwak, Barbapapa, Doctor Snuggles, Tao Tao and so on. After moving out from my parents place I have never really had the need for a tv and even now I only have one to use as a screen for GameCube. But then came the wonderful world of internet and tv-watching boyfriends. This is a list of some tv series I have enjoyed in no particular order.

Twin Peaks

Have I known there was something so great I would have watched this years ago. Loved it, couldn't stop watching it, was inspired by it.
"The body of a young girl (Laura Palmer) is washed up on a beach near the small Washington state town of Twin Peaks. FBI Special Agent Dale Cooper is called in to investigate her strange demise only to uncover a web of mystery that ultimately leads him deep into the heart of the surrounding woodland and his very own soul." (Imdb)

New Girl

I don't usually enjoy comedies but this one really makes me laugh. "Jess - a bubbly offbeat teacher who is known to burst into spontaneous song - catches her boyfriend with another woman, and needs a new place to live. She moves into a loft with three single guys she's never met before. Nick is a jaded law-school dropout, who usually just wants to be left alone. Schmidt is an flashy businessman, who believes he is a gift to women. Winston is a former athlete who doesn't know what to do, but really needs to win whatever it is" (Imdb)

Star Trek

From The Next Generation to Enterprise it's all about adventure and sci-fi a girl can enjoy too.
I didn't really like the very first Star Trek with Kirk as a captain, but after that I have enjoyed every series and movies several times. There is battles, romance, danger, new worlds and weird looking aliens.

Hart of Dixie

This is all about cheesy romance and giggly girly stuff. If not counting pet alligator on the right is a picture of the main reason I keep watching this one. Because, you know, hot men are nice and this one shows up often without a shirt. And is nice and plays guitar. What more there is to want? (Imdb)


The USA version that aired 2011. SO good. Makes me laugh to things you know you shouldn't laugh, but it's fun sometimes. This is what Imdb says about the series: "Meet the fabulously dysfunctional Gallagher family. Dad's a drunk, Mom split long ago, eldest daughter Fiona tries to hold the family together. Eldest son Philip (Lip) trades his physics tutoring skills for sexual favors from neighborhood girls. Middle son Ian is gay. Youngest daughter Debbie is stealing money from her UNICEF collection. Ten-year-old Carl is a budding sociopath and an arsonist, and toddler Liam is - well, he might actually be black, but nobody has a clue how" (Imdb)

Sons of Anarchy

One of the best series I have ever seen. Don't watch this if you like happy, funny, fluffy things. It's all about bad relationships, violence, betrayal and so on. "Sons of Anarchy, aka SAMCRO, is a motorcycle club that operates both illegal and legal businesses in the small town of Charming. They combine gun-running and a garage, plus involvement in porn film. Clay, the president, likes it old school and violent; while Jax, his stepson and the club's VP, has thoughts about changing the way things are, based on his dead father's journal. Their conflict has effects on both the club and their personal relationships." (Imdb)

Also worth watching: Walking Dead, True Blood, Jericho, Game of Thrones and Modern Family says new seasons from Hart of Dixie and Sons of Anarchy are airing 11.9.2012, so I can't wait!

Jeans into a yoga mat carrier

Right now I'm so proud of myself. I had these old jeans I didn't want to wear even when working at garden. Also, I had a need for proper yoga mat carrier. I found this DIY Project and actually managed to make a decent looking, easy to use carrier. And it was super easy. I recommend this project even though, you know, I don't have any friend that do yoga.
