Amber Glow

Red and yellow painted leaves
hang idly within the trees
They break and sail along the breeze
As fires of Autumn’s time

They dance and surf upon the ground
Overlap each other with ruffling sound
A setting I am glad I found
As fires of Autumn’s time

Like fires of the Autumn season
they leap and dance without a reason
A factor of Autumns many seasons
As fires of Autumn’s time’

The grey clouds break, the sun appears
The dancing leaves appear to sere
These flames its kept for many years
As fires of Autumn’s time

We usually go grocery shopping together, but due to such hectic schedule I went alone tonight… I forgot that there is only ONE me… home is a good 15 minutes bus ride away, and of course… a good 5, 10 minutes walking from the bus stop. I always get sooo carry away at the grocery and like always, my cart kept on getting fuller and fuller… Oh boy did I need him…. bags after bags full of meats, can stuff… etc… before I know it, it was $121 worth of grocery and only one me… with 8-10 heavy bags…. I wondered how on earth will I make it home =(… amazingly I did it all by myself.. (struggling of course). I think my arms fell off somewhere between trying to open both locked front door…. pressing the elevator buttons and getting inside my cramp apt. door…. ahh.. can’t feel my arms anymore… I have never taken for granted that I have always have him to carry my heavy stuff for me…. but after today… I appreciate him even more…. that’s why we girls need men in our lives…. =P̃́

on another note.. what shall I cook tonight…. start with cải xào thịt bò.. chicken wing drumblet kho xả… some italian salad with fresh mozarella cheese, grape tomatoes, basils, and virgin olive oil..etc…. have a glass of wine or 2… haha.. for dinner then watch a nice movie and call it a night =P yay for FRIDAY!!!

I had so much fun so far this week. Worked a lot then I had a nice break mid week. Took a relaxing train ride out to the burb to join up with the only other ex-Buffalonian I know here in Chicago, my friend Lan Chi. We had a date to go see American Idol Concert Live that night. The last time I went was with our choir in New Orleans. That was so long ago. Although I did not follow this season but I am always eager to go “anywhere” atleast once before school start again you know. After picking me up at the station we headed home and I got a chance to get to know her 8months old daughter… she was so chubby and so adorable… but she’s def a character. I haven’t been around kids, let alone babies lately so I was super nervous. She won my heart but whenever she cried I panick and ran to her Mom. My friend laugh at my panic state haha… So a day of getting a taste of life with a baby (maybe some day but not soon for me..I like to have a lil more time for myself first). I watched her while her Mom cooks for us and boy after holding her my arms sure were tired… it didn’t help that she cry when I put her down. It all worth it to see her smile though… so precious! So we drop our baby off to baby sitter and off to the concert… boy there were so many people.. the arena was packed..and it was a bigggg arean too.. so rowdy and exciting. I have to say….. I came in didnt expect much… and boy was I wrong… The crowd was amazing.. so lively and full of excitements and anticipation… the roar of cheers, claps everything was beyond! it was by far the best concert I have been to… I get to hear so many styles and different people sang.. and the stage was awesome… lighting and graphic just perfects… I enjoyed it so muchhh… way beyond what I thought I was…. Can’t tell you how much I love it… it was a perfect night.  Leaving the arena was def a problem though… lucky we got out early and just in time… GREAT TIME…!!! I am content!
