Wet Summer


We had to leave at 0430  for base - Michael and I are feeling a bit old and tired. ::snort::  The kids don't have this problem but are graciously trying to keep the house quiet at night.  One more day of Exercise. 

I participated in a Skype this a.m. which brought encouragement, challenge and direction for the upcoming weeks. 

Stacia and I joined a play group/Bible study on base this morning. 

It was strange to enjoy a week and a half of SUMMER in Korea and come home to wind and rain. Today's weather was  schizophrenic. Windy and rainy this a.m. - I started a yummy veggie soup in the crock pot. I cooked up some ground turkey and squash as "condiments" to be added at the table. ::snort:: Yes, we ARE eating down the pantry and we aren't ALL totally thrilled with the dinners coming forth. I was THRILLED to see most liked the soup without adding meat....winning them over one at a time. ::snort:: 

By this afternoon the boys were having the first rip-roaring water fight of the season.... I noticed they didn't entice the rest of the neighborhood kids to join the fun and I was happy they didn't force the participation of others. LOL

It didn't really feel like soup weather by dinner time....what's a cook to do????

A few random closing thoughts:

Mr. Chef man - "vegetarian black bean wrap" does not mean "hamburger patty with black beans added." Just a thought..... ::snort::

Plane Days....sigh...yesterday Marvie, Ashley, Jim and Alex flew out of Misawa. Today we said goodbye to RayeJun and Jessica and their families....Matta ne. As Stacia said, "We're the LASSSST ones here." ::snort::

Four weeks until our plane day.

I do the same. I make vegetarian chili and have ground beef on the side if anyone needs it. Slowly learning to fix meals so that everyone is happy.

Your bean wrap reminds me of lunch yesterday. Dh and I both ordered the same type of burger, but with different buns and different patties. It wasn't until after dh poured ketchup all over my black bean patty and I had taken a bite of his beef that we realized that we got the right buns, but the wrong patties!

It must be so hard to say good bye to so many cherished people. We have had a very wet, cool spring. Rained again here this morning and only in the low 60s. I am waiting for some summer weather.

Praying for you all.

Jen - funny to read your experience and sort of a relief to know it doesn't just happen to me. LOL

Debbie, thanks for the prayers. The rain in June just seems so wrong. LOL
