August, already?

This post used to contain pictures, but due to new storage limitations from WordPress, I had to fix the problem and decided to create a new blog that works as an archive for all the posts from my two years in California. This full post can be found here.

What happened to July? And more importantly, what happened to more than half of the year?!

Today I did something I’ve never done before and should have done a long time ago. I went to Leo Carillo Ranch that’s just around the corner. It’s an “old” (probably even as old as a hundred years!) ranch with a lot of peacocks. I’ve seen the peacocks walking around on our street but today I saw them at their home. I’m kinda disappointed that I’ve only seen the males spread their feathers once (and that was at that peacock party at a house on the street), it’s so beautiful when they do that. We did see a baby peacock today though. It looked like a female but super tiny. I was there for a couple of hours with the kids playing hide and go seek.

Other than that it’s been a normal day with homework, reading and eating. My lunch today was a quinoa salad with chicken, aragula, spinach, feta cheese and salsa ranch dressing. It was so good that I will do something similar tomorrow but with the leftover vegetables from tonight’s tacos. Before lunch we made fortune cookies, they weren’t the prettiest cookies I’ve seen, but really tasty!

I don’t know what I will do now, read or watch another episode of True Blood… Tough decision!
