It has been while since I posted because lots has been going on. I've been getting ready for our trip to Canada which is in less than 3 weeks now! Anyway, I thought I would share these with you.
The other day it was really raining hard and then it stopped for a bit and got strangely bright out one window so I looked and saw this rainbow. I did a double take because I realized there were 2. They started out a bit light but then in a matter of minutes they were so colorful and bright. I had never seen anything like it! Even my boss wanted to take a picture so we opened up a window in another room to get a better shot. It was such a big thing that the next day I had students talking about it! (can you tell I live in a small town?!)
Unagi!! It is summer and therefore time for eels!!! This of course means that the supermarket must have some decorations. In the 2nd picture you can see the plastic eel hanging from the ceiling. Even my hubby got a bit excited about this and took his time picking out his dinner and there were numerous bento combinations involving eel.
Speaking of the supermarket, I went to "Youme town" (no it is not pronounced "you" "me" but rather "you" "may" town which means "dream town"). They have taken the disinfecting thing to a new level. Not only can you disinfect your hands when you enter the mall, but in the same place where you get your cart for the supermarket they now have disinfectant towelettes and they had the ever important picture showing how to use one! Oh and yes, that is a TV next to the towelettes...they have them in the supermarkets here (do they do that back in Canada or the States?) blaring music and infomercials about different things. Every time I go to this supermarket, I end up leaving there with the "I like meat" song stuck in my head!!
At the supermarket the other day I was looking for some coffee...something different and flavored (hard to come by here) but then I saw this one that said "caramel salt and butter" and I thought...wow, sounds interesting. So I bought one and tried it. OH. MY. GOD!!!!! If heaven could be liquified and put in a cup this is what it tastes like. It is creamy, sweet but ever so slightly salty and buttery caramel and ....I gotta stop because now I want one and the supermarket is closed.
