Sayonara, August! The past month was quieter than usual. With the weather continuing to be hot and humid we tried to stay indoors as much as possible. Although, the first day of September proved to be a cool and breezy day which brought a smile to my face. Sweater weather is just around the corner!
Here are some of my August highlights:
- Started new hire training for my teaching job!
- Puppy sat for our friend who went on vacation.
- Tried watermelon soft serve…served in a slice of watermelon!
- Did some touristy things in our town, like enjoying a foot bath and ginger ale, exploring the Buddhist temple, and listening to hundreds of wind chimes at the Shinto shrine.
- Made our first order from iHerb.com which is an American import website. Let’s just say we’ll be ordering more from them soon because the peanut butter is nearly gone!
- Met up with a friend from high school who was in town. I can’t believe 3 people have already come to Tokyo since we moved here half a year ago! I guess it’s a popular destination!
- Went to the Kawagoe water park and got me a nasty sunburn. Stupid, stupid me forgot to wear sunscreen! BUT, the water park was a ton of fun. Can’t wait to go next summer!
Since the Japanese summer is 🌡️hot as ⚾⚽🏐, I've been making fun summer drinks to cool down. Here I crushed frozen blueberries in the bottom of my glass, added some ice cubes and a splash of lychee juice, and topped off with sparkling water.🍹If you want to add alcohol, I think vodka or gin would go best. (But I don't drink either after too much vodka consumption from living in Mongolia and won't touch gin after @andybutkovic insisted I take a shot of it at my ABC party in Sweden😂.) Cheers! . . . . . 📸:@ajgarnica #cocktails #mocktails #inthekitchen #summer #heat #Japan #fancy #drinks #simple #recipe #blueberries #lychee #sparklingwater #vodka #gin #acolorstory
