I am grateful for a fantastic weekend filled with soul-quenching music, a date, a new breakfast restaurant, Korean cooking, digging in the dirt, and Ganesh origami!
Dad and I met for brekkie at Star Seeds and it was a cute little diner experience. Good overall, though the music was blaring too loud. Sunday I spent avoiding studying by replanting several of my plants, cooking 떡볶이 (tteokbokki - spicy rice stew), reading, and figuring out a new origami creation. I discovered a surprise in my bonsai tree last week: one of the tamarind seeds I placed on top of the soil - to maintain moisture in place of pebbles- had sprouted! Supposedly, sprouting the seeds of tamarind is difficult and required the seed to be heated or boiled... which makes no sense since they grow in the Caribbean like weeds... maybe that applies to growing outside a natural environments. Anyhoo, this one sprouted, and now I am growing Tamarind!
Life is good!
