The beach

Current Mood: confusedworn out
Going to Galveston was on my list of stuff to do before heading off to Minnesota, so Mom and I drove down there this morning.  We ate lunch and then I wandered the beach picking up driftwood and getting soaked while Mom worked on finishing Deathly Hallows.  I love the ocean so much.  I walked some and sat in the surf some and felt very alive.  It was really hot but I escaped sunburns with the help of massive quantities of sunscreen.  The ocean makes me happy.

Then we came home and I lay around a lot, tired from the sunshine.  And I watched some anime again and remembered vocab words and my brain is in Japanese mode again.  So far I've held onto it.  Yay!

Durin's still exhausted from yesterday, when we went to visit people.  He came out right away and was just fine and had a blast even though they were people he'd never met before in a place he'd never been.  Go Durin!  I think he should come with me to Alvin on Wednesday.

I have lots to do...

As long as he don't pee on the carpet you can bring him along, you know I would love to meet him, and so would Zack, he loves animals like me, and so dose Emily, but she is still a bit rough with them, so she can just look. :P and I do have a place he can safely be put if you bring his cage, in my room, or the kid's room, witch will be the quietest, even if you just need to take him in there for a little while to calm down, i think it would be a good idea if you do bring him to bring him a little early and let him get a look around the house before all the people start showing up. :P You know I don't mind !

A while after returning from Japan, I stopped thinking primarily in Japanese. My thinking language started to be Dutch + English + Japanese. I think in 3 languages XD Maybe you'll get that too (but without the Dutch).
I got a Japanese weblog after I returned to the Netherlands (http://diary3.cgiboy.com/1/selene/index.cgi) to keep practicing my Japanese a bit. And it's easier to post photos there than on LJ, so you might have viewed that site because I linked to there from my LJ for the photos ^^; (limit is 60kB and 1 picture per day but as you see I can avoid the 1-picture-thing with Photoshop XD ).
But it's very easy to switch back to Japanese, for example when I hear someone talking Japanese or when I meet a Japanese person or when I am reading Japanese or something...

Big rotting (ergo dead) fish

What does Durin think of the main attraction at the beach?

Re: Big rotting (ergo dead) fish

Durin didn't go this time, but when I take him I'm pretty sure he'll try to eat it. I forgot to mention that I did find a dead fish, and even though it was a pretty wimpy small one I was still happy. :D
