This blog has been neglected for long enough. It's time to make some changes and be more attentive. I'm going to try real hard to post every day this week.
Last week was amazing. It was Golden Week in Japan, a cluster of national holidays, and we got Monday, Thursday and Friday off. Four day weekends rule. The weather was also amazing. Darin and I got up relatively early each day and went and got coffee and wandered around our neighbourhood. We rode the boats, visited the zoo, played with guinea pigs other than our own, cleaned, bbq'd, played frisbee and just relaxed.
Here's darin relaxing on our rowboat. sorry if that's a bit too much leg for you on a Monday, but daz was trying out his new short shorts look....
Darin is now visiting friends in SF, so I've been living it up as a bachelorette watching girly movies and shopping.....ha! Claire and I also have tentative plans to watch Dirty Dancing 2: Havana Nights, as we are both single ladies this week...well sort of. Did you know that it's the 20th anniversary of the original Dirty Dancing movie this year??!! That makes me feel old-ish. I remember going to see this movie with my sister and immediately after the movie she went and bought the soundtrack. DD has a special place in my heart as it was also playing on the tv here in Japan when Darin and I decided to get married. We tried to mimic that scene where Johnny lifts Baby above his head, but abandoned this silly idea when we realized that someone would most definitely get hurt.
Anyways, here are some cute keitai pigtures of our pigs. After Darin left I separately gave the girls a celery treat.
Lorettie went first
but when I put Lorettie back in their house to give Shoogie her treat, she got a little jealous. Here she is all feisty biting on the bars. She's not the sanest of pigs.
So that's all for today. I've been doing absolutely no knitting but maybe I can change that predicament this week. No promises though. In exciting news, I'm off to Australia in 11 days for a week. It's been over a year since I've seen my family so I can't wait - YAHOO!!!
