To the best of my knowledge, a bed made in the American style/way consists of a mattress, a bedsheet, a pillow, a pillow case, a blanket, a quilt and a quilt cover. I could be wrong, of course. ^^;;

After washing my bedsheet, pillow case, quilt for which I should not use detergent and quilt cover today, I decided to try putting them on in a more structured approach than I'd been doing before (basically just dumping everything on the bed).

And, since I'm me, I just had to take pictures of it all. :P They're somewhat blurry since this was at night without my camera's flash...

The first part wasn't too difficult...

The second part wasn't too difficult, or so I thought, until I realized something pretty basic...
It's a quilt *cover*, doesn't that mean it's supposed to be covering something? )

After some exertions (including dinner), I managed to get the quilt into the cover and so now I have a "stuffed" quilt cover. ^_^

I wish LJ would let me have a longer "music" field length

Since the "music" field got truncated, here's the original:
np: James Buswell, Marin Alsop, Royal Scottish National Orchestra - [Violin Concerto #08] Souvenirs: V. Hesitation Tango (A Bedroom Affair) [566 kbps FLAC | 0:00 of 4:21]

On Tuesday night, my Korean class went for dinner at Blue Ginger, a pretty popular (and good!) Korean restaurant in Bellevue (it's at the intersection of NE 20th St and 140th Ave NE). The restaurant was great and I had a large bowl of soup (of which I forgot the name now, but it was originally prepared with dog meat) with shredded beef chunks in it. It was really spicy, but it was wonderful. ^_^ We also found out more about our classmates and the teacher, including the fact that one of my classmates has been at Microsoft for 18 years. ^^;;;

Random note: fried kimchi and pork belly slices are wonderful~ Though not in soup ^^;;

On Wednesday night, I watched 깃 (A Feather), which was a somewhat slow but also quite moving movie about a "mediocre" film director, a piano, a hotel on an island, dancing the tango, and a promise... The scenery was very beautiful and I actually liked the movie, even if in some parts the pace seemed a bit slower than usual. ^^;; But I enjoyed the movie overall. ^_^

Last night (Thursday), the TV and DVD player that I'd ordered were delivered at around 9 pm, and it was pretty easy to set them up (within minutes, in fact).

One more week until I meet [livejournal.com profile] relsqui, [livejournal.com profile] testing4l and their cats

Oh, and for some unknown reason, I started playing Clair de Lune. So far I can play it sounding nothing at all like the original. ^^;;;

Yes, finally, about 3 weeks after getting the furniture, it's almost all done! [*]

Some pictures under the cut:
Furniture and stuff )

I'm actually starting to plan for a somewhat belated housewarming some time early next month, in the weekend of a certain day. ^^

[*] The only things still not done yet are a keyboard sliding bench (which needs a drill that I don't have and am too lazy to find/buy) and a wire bundler rack for the table, which also needs some heavy hammering and nailing work.

I've been making rather slow progress on it lately, but now I finished assembling my bed frame and a bedside cupboard (and am waiting for the stain to dry). So here is a picture of what they look like right now. :P

Bed frame and cupboard )

The next item will be a 4-drawer cupboard, which I'm going to start on after lunch today. ^^;;; After that will probably be the TV shelf so that I can actually buy a TV, some barstools, the computer desk and chair, and finally the sofa-bed and coffee table. And then I'll be all done! ^^;

Speaking of which, I should start looking for something to cook other than pork chops, chicken fillets and turkey as well as get more pots, pans and dishes. Does anyone have any suggestions?

I'm still assembling my furniture, and it's not very fast (it took me about 2 hours to assemble the table, and about half an hour for the chair) because I'm the only one doing it (for several reasons), but at least now I have a place to sit down and eat and use my laptop. ^^;;

Completed table )

There are still about 13 more pieces of furniture to go, though, before I'll post pictures of everything in a completed state. :P So be patient

So I ended up not being able to find any suitable furniture at Goodwill yet, but I certainly did see some interesting things there.

Like a pink two-seater sofa.


*has no idea who on earth would buy it*

Some of the furniture was nice, but it either had a hold on it or was sold and waiting for collection. ^^;;

I'm trying to see whether I can go to Ikea on Wednesday, but it looks like it might not be possible to go with anyone, so I'd have to take the bus there... ^^;;;
