Keep your face toward the sunshine and the shadows will fall behind you.
Even though the weather oscillates daily between a damp 50 degrees and sunny in the 60s, spring is steadily settling in here on the southeast coast of Korea. For us, the sign of the season to come is indicated by the ever-increasing amount of dog hair found on our floor. Someone was a happy boy once we addressed that issue with the Furminator:
The gorgeous, gorgeous cherry blossoms have popped up seemingly out of nowhere, as usual. They’ll be gone in a flash so we try to enjoy as much as we can. Local culture pays homage to the cherry blossoms in many ways, including the cherry blossom latte that was offered at Starbucks last year. Enjoy is not the word I’d use in this case; it tasted like nail polish remover. No exaggeration. It’s not on the featured menu this year, if that’s any indication. The real cherry blossom smell much more pleasant, though I can’t comment on taste.
What else have we been up to? My lack of posts isn’t from procrastination or complicated technology for once – here’s a sneak peek from our travels last week:
I’ve got a lot to go through before I get to this most recent adventure. Back at home, though, over the past month we’ve been playing with the VSCO cam app on my phone (probably over-doing it a bit) and:
1. Napping in strange new ways
2. Hitting the dog park, playing with Austin and went back to volunteer with the cuties at BAPS
2. Munching on new culinary delights for lunch
Grappa has J-Mar’s favorite now, the calzone! + Korean chicken soup (samgaetang)
3. Getting our Korean driver licenses with misspelled names
and (4.) losing the ball in Dad’s shoe:
Yes, I made a dog battle video. Hopefully there’s more sunshine ahead… perhaps I need less screen time.
