Monday was a beautiful 100 degree plus night and I decided to do brats on the grill. I removed the cover and tried to start the grill to no avail. I figured we had run out of gas which always seems to happen when I’m trying to grill out. I decided not to stress Rocketman as soon as he came home and I proceeded to cook the brats on the stove.
We have finally started our kitchen update. I spent the week Rocketman was in Asia peeling and steaming the wallpaper off the walls. Rocketman just needs to wash the walls (twice), fill holes and finally paint the walls. We have a great contractor that we used a decade ago to sheetrock our basement and he is putting in the new countertops and tile backsplash.
Louie LOVES to be on our deck and he found a way to get onto the deck without me even knowing he is there.
First, I’m still recovering from the Reiki training I received over the weekend. I feel like I’ve run a marathon the last few day and my energy is almost non-existent. I will blog about the whole experience later when I feel better.
Rocketman spent the last couple of weeks in Asia for work: Japan, China and South Korea. I had a really hard time knowing he would be in South Korea without me but he did offer to pick up a few things for me. The few things turned into a little more than he had anticipated. The first was some hanji things. I ordered some jewelry boxes with the hardware and some bowls. The photo above shows you how the hanji comes.
It’s been a pretty interesting week around here. I was on the deck the other day when I saw this little guy. I’m not sure what he is. We have toads but they don’t have the frog striping on them like this little guy had. He sure was cute and little did I know he was a sign of the future.
I haven’t touch my polymer clay for, well let’s say a long, long time, but it only took an interest from Noah for me to pull out my clay box, dust it off and jump right back in. I thought I would be rusty but one of the things I love about polymer clay is that it is so forgiving. We started by making monsters. Mine is on the right.
Noah had a few days without daycare so he spent them with his “Korean” grandparents. I love the position he took to play Legos. Oh, to be young again. I always answer “yes” and “no” questions in Korean along with some other simple sentences. Noah understands a little Korean because of this and can even count to 10 in Korean.
