I am so loving this summer. Normally I’m itching to get out of here for a while because Jake’s busy and Amaya and I have long days of staring at each other and heat and uselessness, but since I’m 8 weeks from the due date I have to stick around. And we’ve been making the most of it. Jake’s on vay-cay right now, too, and that makes it so much better.
I usually say, Jake doesn’t like to be on vacation, but really, what I’m realizing is, Jake doesn’t like to be out of Hawaii. He is the perfect person to be on vacation with, in Hawaii.
I know, it’s a bit silly, I mean, I’m on staycation in Hawaii. We live in the perfect balance of rural paradise and modern convenience.
Plus the best collection of Japanese food outside of Japan. In the last week I’ve had perfect Yakiniku, fresh cream pan (and a lot of other delectables) from the Japanese bakery, and crisp tempura teishoku. Then there’s the Hawaii summer fruit. We’re just starting out and I’ve had lychee, strawberries, and pineapple by the bowlful. The mango is close behind. And then it will be mountain apple.
You do remember that I have to eat tons when I’m on vacation, right?
It’s so perfect that I almost very nearly totally forgot that I have lots of things to do for school. Oh, yeah, and I’m going to have a baby. I should probably do something about that, too.
