Friday Fun

Friday was quite a lazy day for me. I was on a little bit of an emotional rollercoaster last week, so this is how I cured myself at school on Friday:

Reading the new Nicholas Sparks' book that Jess sent me while drinking my Mango Blend from the vending machine at school (which as become sort of a habit lately) and writing in my awesome new journal that Jess sent me and drinking coffee. It was glorious. Friday night I went to a Christmas party with some of the ladies from my adult conversation class. It was nice to meet some new people and we had some good conversation with the help of our electronic translators.

The picture is Japanese nabe - this one has a lot of mushrooms - but basically it's whatever vegetables you choose and whatever flavor soup you want to boil it in. Then you toss in some meat - this one had some pork and some shrimp and let it simmer on the table in front of you 'til it's finished!

Overall, it was a great Friday! I hope there are many more to come!

I love it! It is to see you using and loving and doing things that I used to, but making them your own. (Your Christmas cookies look wayyyy better than any I ever made!) It makes me feel warm and fuzzy. I love the pic with the J-friends - Azusa, Yumi, Naoyuki, Harumi - and my mouth waters for kimchee nabe! In a couple weeks I'm gonna have a nabe party with some of the Japanese friends I've made here - can't wait! Hope you're having a blast in Thailand!
