It’s Monday (April 17, 2023)

Some things last week:

The kids were on spring break last week and we took a short road trip to Sea Ranch, which is on the coast. It’s such a beautiful place. This planned community was developed in the 1960s and there are still new homes being built today – we saw at least two new structures on our walks. The houses are all designed in a specific style, that’s supposed to kind of blend in and not be eyesores. The colours of the houses are usually like browns and greys, like in the photo above. We had a nice time relaxing, taking walks, and enjoying the view. I’ve got a proper post on that tomorrow.

It’s been getting warmer and we decided to have a backyard bbq on Saturday.

We also had Korean fried chicken – one order with cheddar powder and the other with a sweet-spicy sauce. Delicious! We ate it with kimbap from the Korean supermarket HMart.

Well, I tried to watch the Love is Blind “live” reunion (that turned out not to be live but whatever). And I never managed to even get on to watch it, kept getting error messages.

Eating and Drinking:

I had a piece of toast and a cup of tea for breakfast.


Picked up some salmon bones at the Korean supermarket. Will use it to make fish soup!
