Today I was leaving NY again heading back to work. This building under construction is coming along quickly.

I like accidental photos

Because the buildings, the sky, the reflections, all beautiful.

Lovely skyline, part of which has been taken away by condos. Ughhh..

Saw this sign at Zapata’s Tacos.

I have a busy day tomorrow… I am thinking of something new to do with my photos. A new topic, subjects,… If you have any suggestions, please suggest away!

I was busy indoors all day. Took this photo when I went outside later on for some fresh air.

It looked like rain, but it blew over

After work I went to training. I arrived early.

Training was intense as hell today! There was absolutely no stopping. OMG! I was drenched, and my muscles spent! It was great, but whew! Dang! Exhausting.

I had a hankering for some ice cream, and I think I needed to treat myself to it.

Another productive day in many ways. By tomorrow, if not this weekend, I should be finished with my paper and have it ready to submit! After that, on to the next one.

I went to work at a coffee shop this morning. I also met an awesome dog named Charlie. She made my day. So darn cute!

Today was warm and beautiful

Doors of the Schwab Auditorium. I love large, detailed doors. In fact, maybe I will sketch and doodle some doors. I find them so regal. I love a well designed entry and facade.

Beautiful!

vernelle noel, thinking insomniac, photos, photo journal, architecture, food, beauty, photography

Very well designed.

Blue skies

There’s a lot of detail to be uncovered in the clouds…

Today was another very productive day. Here’s to tomorrow!

The obligatory smoothie started my day today. I also added some yogurt to the mix. Today was a very productive day. Finished somethings on my to-do list. Reached the point of review of my paper, and chose to step away from it for a bit.

At work I was testing and prototyping stuff again. This will continue all summer, since research is always about learning as you go along.

It was a beautiful day today, so I would go outside for some warmth and fresh air when I felt like it.

After work, I had training. Today was intense! Sensei did not allow us to catch our breaths! Matwork, randori, throws, situps, judo pushups, one after the next, after the next. Whew! It was great though. No injuries, so all is well.

Today was a busy one. I didn’t even remember or get the time to take photos until late in the day. Whew! On my way home, I was wondering what to eat for dinner. I was feeling for something smothered in something. I was feeling for fries and something comforting smothering it. A memory of fries smothered in gravy came to my mind, I saw it on tv some time, I think on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives (Triple-D) with Guy Fieri. I decided, this what my dinner shall be. I stopped by the grocery and bought frozen fries, and a can of mushroom soup to make an imitation beef stroganoff.

I finally got the time to look up when I got home.

vernelle noel, thinking insomniac, photos, photo journal, architecture, food, beauty, photography

Lovely!

I baked my fries, and cooked my beef stroganoff…

Talk about it being just what I needed. It hugged me on the way down…

After having my very comforting dinner, I made bananas foster for dessert. Butter, sugar, bananas, lemon juice, pinch of salt to taste, and alcohol. I use rum or wine.

vernelle noel, thinking insomniac, photos, photo journal, architecture, food, beauty, photography

Voila! I usually cut my bananas into small slices. Today is the first time I cooked them as two large halves. I prefer cutting it into smaller slices, the caramelized sugar coats the surfaces of the slices more.

I topped it off with caramel condensed milk. Mmmm…

Here is a photo of my bananas foster (bananas sliced smaller) and yogurt. This photo was taken in Singapore in 2014.

Aaj bahut vyast tha! Today was a busy one. Looking forward to tomorrow.

This weekend was rainy. It rained all day and all night. Perfect weather for the couch, the television, food, and friends!

Perfection for indoors.

I met this sweetheart on Sunday. Her name is Autumn and she is a seeing eye dog. A Black Lab. She is soooo strong, so gentle, so attentive. Heaven has to be filled with dogs.

I marinated fish in a Korean BBQ mixture. I did it with chicken and wanted to try it with fish. I marinated them for just under 2 hours, then baked them at 350 until they were cooked. The seasonings really soaked through. Mmmmm! Spicy, tasty, delicious!

On Sunday I made somewhat of a frittata. Tomatoes, spinach, sweet peppers, cheese, onions, and cilantro. Then I poured beaten eggs over the vegetables and baked.

I kept working on my paper this weekend too. I love it. I love writing.

Dinner! Rice (which I cooked with flax seeds – I wanted to experiment), veggies, and my Korean BBQ fish.

Someone asked me for the Koren BBQ recipe, here is the link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aJdU-Y_4cig
