After my lesson, Jones and I headed out on a bike for Ohama Pool — a FREE pool that’s open only one-and-a-half months of the three-month summer.  (Parking, however, is not free, which is why we took a 15-minute bike ride instead.)  We’re trying to get the most out of it, today was Jones’s introduction to the place.  He enjoyed the sinks in the bathroom more than the huge, fun kiddie pool.  Typical.

We picked up a couple “onigiri” on the way home: a rice ball with some fish in the middle (tuna, salmon, etc), wrapped in seaweed.  Jones LOOOVES onigiri, he starts squealing when he sees me unwrapping it.  He’s currently napping and I’m settling in for an hour or two of reading, hanging laundry without a whining toddler, and menu-planning.   Maybe we’ll go look for a pool floaty later on, while we get groceries… and buy me a coffee.  (They have vending machines everywhere, with hot and cold canned coffee, with or without cream and sugar — they’re not bad!  About $1 each.)

What’s your Monday like?

  1. Mmmm. I love Panera also! What is your favorite bagel from there? The Pool sounds like fun and I would love to see Jones eating Onigiri?

  2. Your comment on vending machines reminded me of one at a rest stop on the way home from Chicago. I was looking for a caffeine boost to help with the drive home, and they had a coffee machine. But I couldn’t get past the part where it said “lightener” instead of “creamer”. Even “non-dairy creamer” or something similar would be okay. But “lightener”? It could be white paint for all I know, with that name.

    I opted for the safer Diet Mt. Dew.

  3. “lightener”?! that’s hilarious!!

    favorite bagel would have to be the cinnamon one — the one you can heat up in the microwave and it tastes like a cinnamon roll. yum! but i also love the whole grain one, with rasp. cream cheese… i’ve got to stop talking about it 🙂
