very cold morning to start with
but later on, the sun appeared and made
brighning almost spring like atmosphere throughout the day
in the evening, i didn't see any stars at all
moon was obscured by the fog
i wonder what the sky look like tomorrow
i am hoping to see the sun smiling again

the patch on elbow

as soon as i saw, my heart melted
we hit it off from the first time
love the character, appearence, the atmosphere
have you had this kind of instant attraction lately?
this was how i felt when i saw this sweater ☺

green onion life

after you used leaf of green onion, what do you do with the roots?
if you like vege experiment at home, you can put it back in the soil
and it will keep growing back and give you some green leafy onion
again and again.  this might save your trip back to the store
when you need only little bit of green in your cooking.

left is what i did today and the one on the right
was from many month ago and i have been able to
trim and use it for my cooking.  leaf keeps coming back
helping me for my home cooking

green onion & potato pancake for lunch
enjoy your green onion

roadside garden & taramosalata

woke up with headache and tiredness but i wanted to see 
pretty flowers as they give me sunshine.   i went on foot and
peaked some houses and the garden as i passed by.  this house
always have lots of potfull of green and flower.  i imagine a
proud grandpa must enjoy his gardenhood and display his work of art
like this on the street.  in spring, it will be flowers all over blooming 
on these pots and i will enjoy looking at them like last year.  
got to the garden center after 30min walk

this afternoon, i made taramosalata
with mashed potato and cod roe and olive oil.
and cup of peachy tea made me feel good.
