Last weekend we celebrated my husband’s 42nd birthday! I made him a jacket with hood (will be posted later) the day before and Sidra made him a drawing.

Yay for technology! SeveralContinue Reading →

If you’re familiar with the blue earless robot cat, Fujiko F.Fujio is the man who created this anime character. The museum was just opened in September last year, so it is pretty new. The tickets had toContinue Reading →

Last weekend, Sidra joined a workshop class at the community center. It was just around ten minutes biking from home, so my husband and I went with him there. Then we spent the time waiting for Sidra by walking around the temple and the woods around the community center. It was a rare occasion becauseContinue Reading →
