On my way home, I found this little guy on the train. Poor unloved glove.

I’m not one for New Year’s Resolutions, mostly because I believe if you want to change something about your life, you shouldn’t need something as arbitrary as our calendar to make it happen. (Also, I never stick to them, so there’s that.)
However, I’ve been thinking about my life a lot lately and about how I’m not as happy as I used to and would like to be. So I want to make some changes. One of them is trying to make sure every day contains a picture-worthy memory.
(Other changes are in the works, so you might see them chronicled here.)


I found this adorable bag at my volunteer gig at Oxfam, where people donate things for us to sell as second-hand stuff, with the proceeds going to humanitarian relief projects in Africa and Asia. I can’t believe someone was willing to part with this guy.

Tonight’s dinner featured my friends’ cat Pacey staring intently at a toy rat. She never attacked but instead decided to go to sleep. We also spent some time googling Calicos and why this color pattern usually only shows up in females. Interesting stuff.

Looks like I’ve become that lady. That lady who cuts up veggies for her worms. Well, full disclosure: a) It really is better to give them small pieces because the worms will only eat what is rotten (and of course a bigger surface area will help with that) and b) the broccoli and the cauliflower were not in any state for me to eat anymore. But still… maybe I should just plan to do my cooking on Mondays, when the veggies are still fresh.

Look at that, I got pets! My first overnight visitor brought me a jar of worms as a housewarming gift (much more appreciated than the usual bottle of wine, I tell you). Let me know, if you can think of cool names; so far, we got Fiona, Paula, Ken Lee, Dibidibidi Bou Choo-hoo-hoo (that’s one name), Shubidu, and HuiBuh.
An IKEA Samla box (fun fact: sammeln means ‘to collect’ in German) turned into their little worm hacienda. I have yet to figure out where they’ll live during the colder part of the year. Starting the worm bin meant a lot of fruit flies (not sure if this is normal), so they live in my little shed until the flies disappear (which is when I should probably bring them inside anyway because it gets too cold in the shed).
