So yesterday was the first year that my family actually celebrated Father’s Day. For the last couple of years, my dad ran a tennis tournament around the same time as Father’s Day so he was always working. Fortunately, the tournament ended a week earlier this year.
I didn’t expect to wake up at half past eight on this Sunday morning, but I did. Only I would have a dream about being at a grocery store and drooling over the cookies at the bakery section. I wanted those cookies so much that I woke myself up and instantly wanted to bake. I looked up a recipe for chocolate chip cookies (which I surprisingly have never baked before) before waking up my brother to cook breakfast.
That’s how I spent my Sunday morning: more than three hours in the kitchen cooking breakfast and baking. Cooking with Jaymes is just plain annoying. He works so slow… and inefficient. I can’t stand it. I’d rather cook by myself. But at least breakfast turned out pretty well.
At around three, we went in to New York City for an early dinner. I was craving Thai all week but we ended up going to Hallo Berlin, a German restaurant. I had my weiner schnitzel. I don’t think it was as good as the one I always have in Myrtle Beach, but it was good enough to satisfy my craving.
Then, we headed over to Lexington Avenue after dinner to see the street fair. It’s nothing special but it was nice to walk around for a while – even if the weather has been and continues to be crap. For the last three weeks or so, it’s been cloudy and rainy. It’s never ending and we’re all sick of it. Needless to say, it started pouring on us. I find that I really did not mind walking in the rain. I just hate it when I’m trying to cross the road and water splashes all over me from a passing car or truck.
In terms of website updates, I finally added new stocks and fonts and a few graphics to my portfolio. I’ve been thinking about adding a premade layouts section but I don’t know if I can be bothered with that yet. I’ve finally put up my fanlisting collection!
