Another Fun Afternoon Made Possible by Margin...
Have you ever simply been unmotivated? That was me today.
I woke up early and it took me longer than I thought to prepare the "Lovin Japan" post...just as I was heading to the Word, Jared Skyped. That was awesome.
After that I needed to work out - but couldn't get motivated. I finally did.
We got some school done...and then Stacia and I ran to the "Strawberry Produce Market" up the road and met a friend and her daughter. We bought the girls a treat from the bakery - which neither was overly fond of...maybe I'll pack a treat next time - got them a drink from the vending machine and headed for the little tables in the greenhouse with the banana trees, pineapples, figs and mangoes.
We took time to explore the chickens, pony, bunnies and rabbits. Finally, we sat in this little enclosure and introduced the girls to the foot onsen.
This provided time for Lisa and I to touch base. We've not done that in far too long. I hope our conversation encouraged her - it encouraged me.
Tonight is AWANA and PYOC. I'll be taking Stacia and the older ones in. Zander is not sure he wants to continue with AWANA - he makes some valid points. He has agreed he will continue to memorize the word, regardless.
Michael left for work this morning feeling ill. So he'll be home with Zander...and I think I'll find somewhere on base to spend a couple of quiet hours...or maybe I'll take a towel and hit an onsen....
Living all of life before the face of God...
