Rainy Week!

Rainy Week Agenda: 
-Taking my morning walk in heavy downpour. 
(Yellow Umbrella and Soaked Sneakers included. ) 
-Epsom Salt Bath of Wonderfulness. 
(My rhomboids thank me. I thank them. Relax. Take it easy, kids.)
-Chamber Music Concert on Tuesday Night.
(Courtesy of Friendly Neighbours. Also, Asian Networking occurs with the only other Asian woman. She wants me to e-mail her. ....) 
-Wednesday Nannying.
(...During which I braved an epic pre-bedtime tantrum. I also experienced night driving during a tropical storm. Fear and Trembling. And maybe some Tchaikovsky.)  
-Post Card Making/Letter Writing
-E. Tries To Learn How To Cook
(I can bake decent cakes. But cooking? Oh dear. Right now the kitchen smells of burnt soy sauce and honey. Yeah. I'm cooking. Oh well. 6 chicken legs at a time, right?)
-E. Buys Frozen Soybeans from TJ's and Includes Them in Every Dish She Makes. This too shall pass.
(Ma, I never thought the day would come when I would WILLINGLY put vegetables in my macaroni and cheese. In fact, I ate all the soybeans and picked around the noodles. Um. I'm still a picky eater, but we're making some progress. This house goes on a legume kick whenever I'm too lazy to cook meat and my body says "MUST EAT PROTEIN'. Plus, soybeans look fabulous when shelled and flecked over white rice.)

-Rainy Day Reading
(Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, Too Many Cooks (by Emily Franklin), and perhaps some Hopkins?) 
House-y Things
(Dishes, laundry, planning my 3 hour drive tomorrow to visit a Chin Rest Maker in the D.C. Area.)  
And La Photo Cabine with Little Bear:
A Very Cheery Thursday to you! 


  1. Hi Em,
    Sounds lovely. Southern CA could use some of that rain you are enjoying. We love you and miss you very much.

  2. Um...your blog is the cutest. That's all.

  3. Postcard making? :) Good luck with cooking!- Sarah

  4. I like European yogurt and lemon pepper in my macaroni.

    Reading of rain is encouraging. I'm so antsy for some that I wait up late for it.

    Hopkins! "O thou Lord of life, send my roots rain"
