Recently, Ken bought her a new set of Pikmin stuffed animals that she’d been waiting on for over a month.
She’s grown particularly fond of one in particular—the one I randomly named “Burt.”
You surprise me everyday. ❤️
Miyu’s summer break is coming to an end in the next week or so and it’s bittersweet. We haven’t been able to go anywhere because of the rising cases (except to a few malls, but they don’t really count), so I’ve felt bad about her having to stay home practically everyday. I’m a true homebody so I don’t mind, but for her, she’s been going a bit stir-crazy to the point where she’s even bored of video games now. Hah! Good. Luckily, Baba & Jiji have been helping her study once or twice a week and she only has one piece of summer homework left to do.
Meanwhile, I’m slowly getting back into the swing of things. Health-wise, I’m slowly getting better. I need to establish a routine of stretching and gentle exercises in the morning. A few days ago I finally logged into WaniKani for the first time in probably over a year, so that’s progress. And currently, I’m reading Dune by Frank Herbert. I’ve been meaning to read it years ago, but now that it’s about to be released on film, I really want to finish it before then. I’ve had to Google how to pronounce “Arrakis” because not knowing for sure was totally bothering me 😂.
I played around with my X-T2’s settings last night and decided to try a whole new focusing and shooting mode as well as a new image size (16:9). I’m liking it so far. The only issue I may come across is printing at a print shop or placing a print inside a photo frame. The images may need to be cropped. Hhmm.
Back when she was still a baby or a toddler, I remember grocery shopping was pretty hectic and stressful. Overtime though, things have been improving and tonight when Miyu and I went grocery shopping, I realized that my little girl is now helping me with the groceries. I don’t have to worry anymore about her running off and wreaking havoc. If she wanders off, I know she’ll be nearby and she’ll come back to me. I’m so proud and grateful. We’ve come a long way. 🙂
