Typical mornings and the coveted boiled egg maker

I’ve always wanted to blog about our little boiled egg maker so this morning I thought why not? We bought this thing many years ago and I don’t know what I’d do without it. Basically you just add water to the bottom dish (below the metal plate), put the eggs in, pop the top on, and put it in the microwave for 8~9 minutes (500W). I don’t have to worry about using a pan and creating more dishes. After I’m done with this, I just put it back in the dish dryer and let it air dry. Voila! I was too tired to fry sausages this morning so I just made buttered toast to go with her egg. Sadly, Miyu only eats egg whites. Ever since she was a toddler, she has had an aversion to yolk. Which kind of works out for me because I prefer the yolk. 🙂

She’s getting more and more into HayDay and she’s looking more like me now, like a HayDay otaku on multiple tablets. I’m fine with her playing this because I’m trying to teach her how to follow directions since she doesn’t know how to listen very well, she’s learning how to count bigger numbers (coins), learning new vocabulary, and most of all, the game manages to sustain her interest. It’s calm and peaceful, there are no rushing actions or sounds that she needs to keep up with unlike her other apps. This simple little farming game teaches her the value of hard work and patience. She wants to be able to buy pets and new machines but I tell her that she needs to keep playing so she can level up, grow crops, sell stuff to make coins, etc. I think she’s slowly understanding, but she likes to play on my farm more because I have a lot more things to do on there. Sigh. Oh well, one day at a time.

The prologue ended exactly as I pulled into the parking lot at my work. I was definitely intrigued and the author’s command of language and tone is very impressive.

My hands are a bit achy today, specifically my fingers. I need to tape up my right middle finger this time. I didn’t go grocery shopping or start on my homework yesterday as planned (blew my remaining cash at Daiso and took a 3-hour nap instead, LOL), so today I’m hoping to be a leetle bit more productive.
