Busy day - good day. 

Arielle, Stacia and I went to the chapel bright an early for the kick off of this year's   Tuesday PWOC studies.  Wow....over double the total number of ladies in studies this year. I'm teaching Covenant on Monday night and Tuesday a.m. 

After study, Stacia asked if we could go to her favorite place. I braced myself for "Burger King." You don't see this at Burger King. 

We went to Kappa Sushi for the chicken. ::snort:: I counted everything and didn't find a 33. 

Ran Jared to football. Ran to the commissary. Ran to the post office and then home.  We received this in the mail...

It's gorgeous, Michael. A once in a lifetime chance (I pray) to pick up an authentic Afghanistan carpet in country. 

Ran home and visited with the neighbor across the street. Ran to pick up Jared.  THEN....zipped to pick up Mary....and Twyla...and went to the ONSEN. YES. I haven't done that since June.  As I came in to the house tonight the stars were bright and plentiful, the crickets were chirping and I remembered again all the reasons I love living in Japan.

The rug is stunning. I saw the pic on FB and wondered just what it was.

WHAT a blessing to love Japan so much! You've had several great assignments recently, I know how much you loved Alaska, and Texas was special having most of the family still home. And now this!

Just thought of a 33 (or any random number)--how about the number of steps from one place to another, i.e., the car to a store, the front door to the bedroom, the corner by the house to your house, etc.

Oh, yes, and LOVE what Stacia chose as her fave place! How wonderful that she's old enough to remember life in Japan when she gets older!

I love it too...something pretty to come from the separation.
