Bike riding and Saturday hangouts

Miyu and I visited her friend on base yesterday. We went bike riding and she had such a blast. It was nice on base because there were hardly any cars at all and the biking/jogging grounds were really nice, weaving between trees clearly away from the main roads. I didn’t take a picture because while Miyu and her friend were riding ahead, I was hanging out with the friend’s mom (also on bicycle). I didn’t wanna risk crashing in an attempt to break out my phone for a photo. Sadly.

Afterward, we stopped by their house to see their new kitten. Miyu was really enjoying herself and overall we had a nice and adventurous day, despite my butt being sore from an hour of bike riding. Ugh. By the time we left their house, it was around 4:45pm and the weather had gotten a lot colder. My hands were white and blue. Sigh, but it was all worth it. After that, I didn’t feel like grocery shopping and then cooking, so I ordered takeout (Ootoya) for our dinner. 🙂

After having these laying around the house for a few years, Miyu finally decided that she likes wearing headbands. We’ll see if this lasts! Like her mom, she can be very fickle. 🙃

Kanji Flash Cards

Fuji X-T2 • 16mm f1.4

A while ago, I got this flash card set for both kana and kanji and I’m so glad I did because they came in handy today during Miyu and I’s Nihongo study session. She was excited to jog her memory and we marked the ones she had trouble remembering with a cupcake post-it note for future review. I knew some of the first grade kanji, but not nearly as much as Miyu. She said that I would need to go to “first grade school” like her and she started wondering how I would do so. I laughed and told her that her teacher would kick me out of the classroom because I don’t belong there. Ken explained to her that I already finished school, but I could tell that Miyu didn’t understand—which made it all the more funny to me.

Trying RingFit Adventure for the First Time!

Fuji X-T2 • 16mm f1.4

I finally got around to unboxing a Switch game I bought months ago called RingFit Adventure. Ken had recommended it to me off of YouTube. So, I got it in hopes of motivating myself to exercise while working from home. Only time will tell. Of course, my trusty daughter volunteered to test it out for me. 🙂
