Truly Wish the Summer Away

Happy Sunday!

It’s still raining on and off and the humidity is still a bit of a buzz kill,

But that’s not getting in the way of my last bit of summer Sundays.

Half of me is incredibly sad to see Summer go so quickly, but the other half is screaming bring on the Fall Season, NOW!

Ahh…imagine, no humidity, less crazy frizzy hair, cool nights without the fan or AC.

Even as I sit here with the fan pointed at me and my messy hair blowing all over the place, I just cannot bring myself to truly wish the summer away.

Just look at all the lush beautiful shades of green that summer brings to us here in Korea.

Today after church I met up with our good friends for lunch at the Yongsan Station. I had a wonderful time! I loved getting to catch up with them both and hear about their recent tropical diving vacation. They two of them looked so refreshed, calm, and cool. Vacations are such a wonderful treat for the mind, body, and soul. They seriously had the post vacation glow!

Unfortunately, Katya had to get scooting to grab the train to her class, so Luis and I decided on some desert…I’ll give you a hint.. starts with a -P- end’s with O-M-G my summer desert obsession.


Come on folks, is there really any other choice.

Nope.. not to me that is.

This was pre-potbingsu taking flight, right Luis? HA-HA! *Wink,Wink*

Free Pass

There is just something about a rainy day that makes me think God is saying You can relax in sweatpants today….

Like a free pass…

Whatever the case,

I’ll take it!

Saturday was pretty relaxed and low-key for me (Mrs. B).  The rain came and went all day.

Not to draw attention to my alien toes… but, do you like the color of the toenails? I went with my dear friend and had a girls night. I let the young Korean girl who did them pick my color. I think its fun! I will have to blog about that entire experience soon.

I shared the quiet apartment with Miss Bean. Isn’t she just the cutest?

(Enter crazy cat lady section of the blog).

Mr. B went diving on the East Coast. Oh yes!  Like a proud little wife I have to congratulate him on his latest achievement on becoming certified as a Dive Master. You have no idea how hard this man has worked and studied to obtain this! I admire the drive and dedication he has, just one of the many reasons I love him so very much.

Okay, Okay… Enough of my mushy mushy.

I picked up a small gift that I wanted to give our friends tomorrow. I dawdled in the rain a bit to a Korean kitchen supply store near our place. I knew what I wanted in my mind, surprisingly I was able to find something fairly similar.

I got really crafty and used a paper Lotte Mart bag to wrap it up. Hey! reduce, reuse, recycle….oh no..it’s official… I’ve  been in Korea way to long.

How was your Saturday? Do you ever wrap gifts in crazy papers or materials?

Just curious…
