woke up early to shower and put on a dress, just to feel pretty. brewed coffee. ate a tiny bowl of some precious mini-wheats. intended to study. started, but ended up reading emails and blogs, and occasionally staring out the window. its overcast, but the birds are chirping. its the type of weather i enjoy being outside in because i can stay cool. i really should study, i have lessons today. all i really wanna do is tidy up our house, drink a bit more coffee, and sit outside thinking as J plays in the sandbox.
i also want to buy some flowers to make our yard look pretty. its REALLY ugly, ya’ll. really. but i haven’t been able to bring myself to spend the money since we don’t know if we’ll be here through spring or not. spring is far away, i know, but i hate acquiring and having extra to pack, even if its just a few pots.
getting out by myself today for a little R&R after my mom’s two week visit. it was fun. 🙂 but traveling to kyoto and tokyo, walking all day for a few days, and doing a fair amount of the navigating and translating when without the hubby was a little taxing on my pregnant body and its weary mind. i’m going to go somewhere pretty, order something sweet, and just sit. be jealous. 🙂
i have hopes of seeing you soon — hoping the weather and my refreshed heart will provide more blogging energy. don’t count on it yet, though. a tired mama can change her ideas pretty quickly. 😉
