April 30, 2009: Honey misses Erin and Matt

Apparently my parents think that Honey misses being at Erin and Matt's house, so they put some photos of Erin and Matt in front of Honey's "bed".

April 29, 2009: New Lamp for Work

I purchased myself a lamp for my desk at work. I've been wanting one for a while (I bought a cheap one a while back but don't really like it). I can't wait to set it up.

April 28, 2009: What is Chad Doing?

What is Chad doing with that mirror? Looks like maybe he's practicing kissing? Haha. I think he's checking his teeth because he just brushed them or something.

Chad and I drove over to Rita's today for our first water ice of the season. I think I ended up just getting custard without water ice. That's what I usually do ...

April 26, 2009: Plant Matter

Although it is quite dirty to have trees and plants shedding their old plant material all over the yard, sometimes it is neat. I like how this furry thing looks.

Chad and I took a walk around our neighborhood today. We ended up at Curtis Arboretum. Look at the rules. Do they realize they have banned "proper attire"???

Today a group of people from the meeting took a walk to do some bird watching. I decided to join them since it was so nice out. I saw this awesome tree trunk and roots.

April 22, 2009: Rock Garden

At our project site, there was a large area filled in with gravel. There were these cute plants growing up through the rocks and I'm wondering where they get nutrients....

Steve and I flew to Michigan today for a new project and we had to fly through Detroit. In that airport, they have a tram with this information board. It's all in Japanese too!

Here is a photo of the Sweet Potato Cake at the bakery at H Mart (Paris Baguette Cafe). I love Korean (and Japanese) bakeries. So many wonderous things to eat.

April 19, 2009: Mom's Garden

I went to my parents' house today to mow the lawn for them. Look at all my mom's wonderful daffodils. Too bad she was in Japan and missed seeing them.

I guess I forgot to take a photo today too. Adina and Steph arrived, so I was overcome with joy, I guess. Here's a photo from the next morning at the Korean bakery!

April 15, 2009: Shadow of an Orchid

Today the sun was shining brightly and it was reflecting off cars in the parking lot, and making shadows on my wall. Here's a shadow of my orchid!

April 14, 2009: Gross Toe

I apologize for those faint-of-heart, but I just had to post this photo of my toe. I took the bandage off to clean it today and look how gross it was!

April 13, 2009: Bandaged Toe

I went to the podiatrist today and she decided to cut my toenail for me. Why is it bandaged? Because she had to go under the skin to do it! Stupid ingrown toenail.

Sorry for the somewhat poor quality of this photo, but it's just perfect. This is Chad's family on Easter at Aunt Beth's house. The lovely one in the corner is Veronica.

It's been interesting watching the progression of work next door. Today we discovered they were working on the bathroom - the toilet was left out on the porch.

April 7, 2009: Avocados and Masala Burger

I made myself a Masala Burger sandwich today with avocados. It's on one of my favorite breads - the healthy multi grain. It was so tasty.

April 6, 2009: 341.7 GB Available

I replaced the hard drive in my MacBook today with a 500GB drive (replaces the 80GB one). I'd been at capacity for a while - my Japan pics put me over the edge.

April 1, 2009: Restoring iPhone

I got a new iPhone today because I had a problem with my SIM card. It's a long story. I got it home and restored it right away. It didn't restore everything though. Lame.
