Well! Not much going on today, work earlier, the room is almost cleen. I'm finally working on my pajama pants, I have a basket of paper hearts and a bag of granny squares. I want to get a bright blue metal frame bunk bed and I want to paint my walls yellow. I just realized it's past midnight and I'm not remotly tired yet! Oh well ... This is my Chinese notebook and my sock knitting. I really want a pair of heels and I'm really into this idea of lace up ankle boots. I may have found some that I like, you'll know if I buy them. At any rate, a friend is comein over at lunchtime tomorrow and we're gonna mess around with my skateboard so maybe I'll take some pictures. Also throwing around the idea of doing yoga excersizes. I understand it's really good for you. Anyone ever tried it? Any comments?

So it was a long but good weekend, I had an unexpected holiday on Saturday. It was lovely, I got to hang out with some of my Chinese University friends. Well yesterday as always was a long Sunday full of long classes. However, this particular Sunday night dragging myself up the 97 steps to our apartment at 7 pm, was not the end. There was a party at school for the teachers and I had to be there. Well it wasn't bad, but the walk home was rather chilly. It hasn't gotten far above freazing the past three days and I have this feeling that it won't be warm again till spring. Ah well, such is life in Harbin. At any rate I got to have lunch with my good friend Punk today and we had a lovely walk in the coooooooold outside afterwords. P.S. I got a scateboard last week and I'm very excited to learn its wonderfull ways.
Yes I was practicing in the house :)
A friend of mine who lives Glasgow makes adorable sock animals and I was feeling rather inspired. Soooooo I went out to the night market and found some I thought would make some cute pets. Here are some wonderful little tutorial links. Hope you enjoy!

Well dearies I was out on adventure today and found the loverly spot, it's quite perfect a quiet walf, a loverly picnic or a pleasent party, I can't wait till the spring, late spring of course, when things are warming up and turning green. For now it'll do for walking and a quiet place to sit and knitt or write or practice my Chinese, and not be gawked at or scolded for sitting on the ground. It's really an answer to prayer, I was just telling my mom the othe day that I needed a place like this. Well that's all for now lovelies.
