Rainy afternoon

Our house is pretty dark — the clouds have gathered and its thundering outside (though still crazy humid).  Bryan is out with friends and Jones is napping, so I decided to bask in our air-conditioning, have a little toddy, and bake myself some cookies.  {We have a killer recipe that makes a TON of dough, so I freeze the leftovers in little balls for fresh cookies in 9 minutes!}  Here are the little lovelies..

..and I’m eating the three of them — ALL three, just for ME!  Because I live in a foreign country.  And its hot outside (and inside).  And I’m a mom to a busy toddler.  And I’m studying Japanese.  And I woke up this morning with a cold — in hot, humid weather.. {ick!}  .. I usually go through this mental list pretty quickly when I’m wondering about whether I want to eat a treat or not.  I think this is why one of the symptoms of culture shock is weight gain.

What are you doing today?

  2. Tess is fussy today, so she has been jumping (happily) in the Johnny Jumper for the last 2 hours and 2 minutes. I’m not about to take her out. This is the only time she hasn’t been fussing all day.
