Sunday in an Orchard
Tuesday August 10, 2010
Sunday Mike & I went to a local Orchard. They actually do a lot of business through Mike’s office so he knows more of the back-story behind this family owned farm. Sadly he told me the grandfather had recently passed and it explains why there were less “picking” fields planted this year. That’s really hard. I think it’s important to patron these family owned farms! Support them! The fruits are on par with grocery store prices but you KNOW it’s fresh! You just picked it! Not to mention it gets you out and gives you something to do that’s relaxing/quiet.
We went to the “Summer Flowers” field. Many of the flowers have bloomed & gone but there’s a huge field of late summer Sunflowers ready to bloom!! Maybe by next weekend it’ll be a field of yellow :)
Speaking of yellow, I bought a fresh wedge of yellow watermelon! Like I said before, watermelon has been stellar this year! So sweet & juicy! I keep OVEREATING watermelon until I feel like I’m gonna pop! I just can’t stop! I think last week I ate an entire “personal size” watermelon in 1 sitting! I actually finished this wedge all on Sunday too~ by myself~ gah! Watermelon, if you eat a lot of it, feels SO heavy-hollow in the tummy! Kills my stomach I feel like I’m gonna blow~
I leave for Tokyo in 2 weeks. Some people were asking . We’ve got a house-sitter all lined up and ready to go for the 2 weeks we’ll be there. :good: I’m getting together a rough itinerary. We hit up a lot of the major sights on our last visit so I’m kinda glad we can go a little more low-key this time. Plus no overnight stays outside of the city. Though staying in the Mt. Fuji area was AMAZING, travel time does suck.
I’m thinking about what to bring.
You can have 1 checked bag & 2 carry ons. Uuuugh. That’s 1 less checked bag than last time’s allowance. You can always pay for another checked bag but it’s like 50$~75$ … Dnw. Shipping shit to myself would be cheaper lol (though not by much, hah!)
I just checked it again and since ordering my tickets they’ve changed it back to 2 checked bags!!
YESSSSSSSSS! This is good, very good! I’m not so worried about buying too many shoes now!!
Still gonna pack CRAZY LIGHT!
I’m getting off on a tangent. Anyway. So I’m packing super light! Nothing’s finalized yet but I’m thinking bringing 1 skirt, 2 shorts, and 4 tanks for the entire trip! Lol. And then just wearing whatever I buy there. Maybe 3 tanks would be better, bwahaahaaa! I’m gonna rape the WC store by the end of day 1. It’ll be a weekday afternoon too~ :)
I’ve been working on a new banner but it’s doubtful to be done before I leave. We’ll see~~ I need more hours in the day.
