So many small things have happened over the past weeks - here is a 'catching up' post.
Beach Time -
Hong Kong does November right. Shek O beach is one of our favorite afternoon destinations. Close to our house. Restaurants nearby. And a lady sets up chairs & umbrella for about $1 USD. A blissfully relaxing place.
That bed project? Done. (happy find: zero VOC paint)
A care-package in the mail with USA stuff brings a special kind of happy!
|Thank you, Justin & Joelle!!!|
|These will be my downfall!|
|"chinese herbal" - medicine that really works!!|
Hanging at the house...
Out and About:
|Elton John concert - on a school night! :) yeehaw!|
Weekends in Stanley (always!)
|Bear & I tried this group jump-rope - unsuccessfully!|
|ice cream from the dour lady at the corner store|
Midlevels with a dear friend for pedis and dinner:
Cook-Out with our apartment-pals:
Thanksgiving with friends:
|football - laptop style|
|all of the Amahs|
|For 3 days straight - she insisted on wearing her 3D glasses to watch cartoons.|
|She also aggressively asks to bake something every Saturday morning.|
She picks a photo in the kids' cookbook and begs to make it -
sometimes as early as 5:30 a.m.!
And finally - preparations for Christmas:
|school tree-lighting ceremony at night|
|yep, still shorts weather some days|
|ABear's Christmas Show|
This preschool warms my heart something fierce!
|Only in Hong Kong do you need to 'take a number' |
...and purchase a ticket days in advance enabling you to 'take a number' to see the big guy.
