When did it become fall?!?

I conducted two phone interviews for T.A.D. interns while walking this morning and was surprised to hear that familiar crunch under my shoes.

Still stopped to smell the roses.

Around noon I got hungry and pulled out The Spice Table leftovers

The Laksa was now a thick, congealed mass. I used half of it, with a pile of frozen collard greens to cut the richness of the coconut curry

Now I have enough for another meal…

…plus Sambal, which I’ll use in another recipe (someday)

Into the freezer they go! Always cover them in a layer of plastic wrap (to prevent ice crystals from forming) before snapping the lids on.

Perfect brunch on this gray September day.

The Restoration Hardware catalog arrived – I don’t remember ever signing up for it?

It’s a massive monster – over 600 pages filled with things I can’t afford!

(But it makes a great coaster.)

Any San Diego readers? The SDAFF schedule is now up – I’ll be there the weekend of October 22nd for the Gala Awards, a screening of two movies (“Surrogate Valentine” – preceded by Abe and my short, “Via Text“) plus a Panel on Asian-American Women in Hollywood. Tix for all three are on the site!

Aaah the roses, what a delight :) and you captured the falling leaves so well. I truly admire the simple layout of your posts Lynn. And I just recently began following your blog again (I went on a ‘stay off the internet hiatus’), so just noticing your successes with the acting…congrats!

Fall came out of nowhere this year. I want summer back.
