The sun was out for a short while but I really missed the bright blue skies of Truckee. No place can compare to Truckee when it comes to blue skies and beautiful views and weather! If anyone reading this would love to know more about my bit of paradise go to my good friend’s website: www.tahoetruckeehome.com , you could check out rental homes for summer or winter rentals and even check out home avalabilities if you ar ein the market to buy a home.
I am nursing a cold that I literally caught in the plane, 6 hours into the flight to Japan. We had a leak in the plane and so the captain imposed water conservation like no hot teas or coffees and we had to wash our hands using mineral waters. Maybe someone did not wash his hands and I caught his cold ..who knows. If we did not conserve we would have been diverted to Alaska for repairs etc. but I am mad cos I really wanted to work out in the gym and meet my friends here.
Every morning I turned on CNNand watched more bad news- how low can the DOW go down? It is so depressing. I am also following the news on politics and hoping that my absentee ballot will come throught the mail. I want my vote to count so it’d better come soon.
We went to a farewell dinner for one of Dave’s guys last night. There were nationalities from about 8 countries. We had beef sukiyaki – a huge pot on a small gas stove on the table where we cook raw slices of beef and veggies – and endless supply of beer for two hours. We all sat on the floor on tatami mats but I am sorry, this method of sitting just does not agree with me. Poor Dave was in agony…me too. Give me table and chairs anytime!
I have been making chainmaille jewellry since I came back and picking up my knitting again and counting the number of weeks before I go home again to truckee!! We just found out that we will be here for another 6 months. I really do not mind as long as I am with ma hero and as long as I get to come home to see my babies. I hope to see the cherry blossoms again before we leave Japan for good.
BTW one of my babies has a website – check it out – she has such happy illustrations – www.stellarbaby.com
Sayonara – til next time!!
