Current State of Affairs

We went out yesterday to Yokohama to get Ken’s annual eye exam done so he can continue to receive his contact lenses subscription. We were at the Bay Quarter building on the 8th floor I believe it was where Miyu and I found some gacha gacha machines. This one immediately caught my eye. They were just of animals weighing themselves on scales. This dog one in particular was my favorite. Reminds me of myself and how I still need to lose 20 more pounds to be at my target weight goal. 🙂

Carrot Cake

I’ve been on a carrot cake streak lately. This is the second batch I made for the second week in a row. I noticed for quite some time that restaurants don’t normally offer these on their menus so after all these years, I thought I’d finally make my own. 🙂

Forgot my mask?!

We took a little trip to the combini for lunch today and when I got back home, I was aghast to discover that I had completely forgotten to wear my mask! 😱 I knew something was off when I took this photo of me and Miyu…. but it didn’t click until I shut the door when we got home! LOL Whoopppsss.

When we were eating our lunch, Miyu hinted that she wanted my drink. I reluctantly slid my tea bottle over to her and said witheringly, “Why don’t you ever get your own drink?”

She replied, “Because my butt is stuck to this chair!” She went on to explain that the cushions on the chair make it hard for her to get up (like she sinks into the cushions). Sigh. 😩

First snow of the year?

Apparently it’s snowing right now and Miyu said she wants to make a snowman later. She’s excited, running around singing the Do You Wanna Build a Snowman song from Frozen. And now I find myself humming the same tune 🤨. According to the weather app, it should be snowing for the next few hours…

Gosh, what a nice day to cozy up in my electric blanket and finish reading A Time of Contempt. Too bad I’m working 😣. But, I do have a thermos full of ginger tea and I can’t really complain because I’m home…where it’s nice and warm.
