This is one of the most relaxing weekday I have had so far, because today the kids have a day off from school to observe Veteran’s Day. Originally I set out for them to do some extra brain work, and perhaps all three can go for a hike at the park and climb that small ridge, and also take them out for a lunch-date at a Korean restaurant, then a round of grocery shopping…
None of the listed above happened.
I slept in with extra 30 minutes, and then I let the kids watch some of their favorite PBS shows on TV. By the time I was going to take them out for lunch, Mr. O texted me that he would come home early because of not feeling well. So we picked him up from the station and head out to eat at an Afghan place.
There were some drizzle of rain this morning, reminds me a bit of early fall in MN and MA. It’s now almost mid November and we haven’t had any real rain yet. At this time last year the grass had already come up, and the green color plastered on every ridge and mountain tops around me.
Not this year, it’s still brown. That’s California drought for us! The price of water we are paying here is almost triple what we paid in MN. But on the flip side, I am not suffering from the blistery cold of god-forsaken Midwestern winter.
…and I have been real busy these past two weeks…in between doctor appointments (many of them!), different hours for kung fu classes, field trips, class volunteering…
I figured Halloween was almost two weeks passed, but haven’t put photos of them up here yet. Here are a few photos taken at their school’s annual Halloween parade.
P.S. Now we are getting ready for a Red Cross fund-raising gala.
