today i slept in until 11am which was glorious. india has been quite the snuggly cat since the beginning of the holidays. when i woke up this morning she was sitting near my head, curled up and asleep. so nice! got up, gathered my clothes and took a shower. then sheree and i made our way out the door for another trip to russian market. i was armed with a list--lamp lady, silk lady, and mirror lady. i bought some orange silk for cushion covers and a runner for our bedroom. i also some to cover the new lamps. i am so excited about the new look for our bedroom. after the silk lady, we went to the lamp lady to give her the orange silk to cover the new lamps and give her my sketch of the korean lamp that is still in need of a lamp shade six months later. :) thrilled about this too. last stop was to purchase the big mirror i had found a few days ago. we bargained her down and i was thrilled with the final price. i had asked her for the measurements so i could come home and make sure it would fit and look proportionate. she wrapped it up and added hangers while sheree did some clothes shopping here and there.
the last stop before coming home was at the frame shop, but again they were closed. not sure where they are or what the deal is, but they possibly might be on holiday. who knows?!?! we will try again tomorrow. i bought some beautiful indigo blue fabric in laos that we cut into 5 one meter strips to be framed separately. then i also have a piece of art made for us by our favorite cafe owner in seoul, jenny.
now back at home, we had lunch of cheese toasty sandwiches, fresh mango and bananas, and some leftover roasted veg from last night's dinner. so good. i think it might be time for a nap and some reading. i love the holidays.
paul and i had dinner out together at tell restaurant. we chose the cheese fondue and beef fondue. it was quite tasty and we were happy with our selection. it was nice to have dinner with him and be able to catch up and just be together. we ordered vanilla ice cream with chocolate sauce for dessert. yum!
made a short stop at bayon for beverages and other needs before coming home to watch some tv. we chose to watch some more big bang theory which is hilarious. we have decided that season 2 episode 11 is the BEST show to date. we laughed until we were crying.......great fun!
