A new school year is beginning! I teach on a modified year round
school year, so summer vacation is short to begin with, and then I also
teach extended school year (it's like summer school), so my summer is busy..
but then I had two weeks of vacation, well almost, if you don't count my prep days.
I had lot's of fun this summer.. ESY was great!
My niece came and stayed with me for most of a week.
We did lot's of fun things, like going to Natural Bridges
(not the state park, but a cave you can swim through), and I took her
on her first trip to Japan Town and the Japanese Tea Garden in San Francisco!
We of had cute crepes in JTown...
Then off to the Tea Garden.. I love it there, it's so pretty!
My friend Holly of http://www.kimchikawaii.com/ wore a beautiful
dress she made recently. She even designed the fabric herself!!!
Everyone wanted to pose for a picture with her, but who can blame them!
I mean, look at how cute she looks!!!!
By the way, the beautiful blond is my niece. And while we were in Japan Town
she bought her first bento box! I can't wait to see what she packs!
I can't wait to go to the Tea Garden again. I love it there!
Anyway, LUNCH.. tomorrow's lunch is a simple one. I've been eating
far to much processed food recently... So for tomorrow I have
some yummy tomatoes fresh from my sister's garden with salt and pepper,
some meatless meatballs, and cantaloupe. I will also have some
air popped popcorn (which I keep at work). It's a munchy kind of lunch..
Here's hoping for a great new school year!
