It’s Monday (January 9, 2022)

Some things last week:

The kids are finally back at school. They had a nice two week winter break, where we didn’t travel, and instead spent time at home. And the weather last week was not the greatest. Luckily, we didn’t have it as bad as places on the coast, like the beach towns of Santa Cruz and Capitola – you can see some of the damage in this news article.

Besides hanging out at home and playing video games and board games, reading books, and watching movies (we watched all the Hobbit and Lord of the Ring movies, the kids’ first time), the kids also helped me with some cooking and baking.

We made pizza
The kids wanted breakfast burritos
On the day it didn’t rain, we went out for some seafood. Great calamari!
And after being bored at home on yet another rainy day, we drove out to a Barnes & Noble (there isn’t one in our town). The kids discovered that they have a pretty big manga and comic collection!

Long summer crochet duster (pattern), but I don’t think I’ll make it duster length.

I’ve just finished Hooked by Sutton Foster and am looking for a new audiobook.

Eating and Drinking:

Banana bread and coffee


We went to a relatively new Korean supermarket that opened in our city. It doesn’t have as huge a variety as the popular Korean supermarket chain, HMart, but it was not too bad. HMart after all is a bit of a drive from us, so it’s nice to have this just 10 minutes away.

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is a place to meet up and share what you have been, are and about to be reading over the week. This meme started with J Kaye’s Blog   and then was taken up by Sheila from Book Journey. Sheila then passed it on to Kathryn at the Book Date
