Sunday Update

This is becoming a thing for me, that I do updates on Sundays. Maybe I'll try to keep it up. I've seen people doing "The Sunday Salon," which I gather is a sort of Sunday Update meme. Does anyone have any idea where this originated? Maybe I will try to participate.

Anyhow, my first week in in my new home went smashingly. I am SUPER psyched to be here, and I love my new town. There is so much animal life everywhere! I almost stepped on a ginormous lizard today! It was literally, like, 2 feet long. I also got a sunburn today. Oups! Guess I need to buy some sun block. Anyhow, for those of you that missed it, you can check out MY PERSONAL BLOG if you're interested on keeping up with my life in Japan. I'm doing my best to post pictures, etc. . . as often as possible. I hope you'll follow! :-)

Other than that, I hope you all had a GREAT read-a-thon weekend. I really wanted to participate, but I figured this would be a good weekend to try to get to know my new city. I did my best to read lots, though, and I did manage to read 2 1/2 books this weekend (which is normally what I read in a week), so GO ME! I also managed to find *2* book stores in which I can buy English books. I can't decide if I am psyched about this or not. As I really want to be only buying books for my kindle so as not to have a bagazillion to lug back with me. But then, BOOKS! REAL BOOKS! How can I stop myself?

That's all for now, folks! Be looking for some great reviews this upcoming week! Oh, and also, if anyone happens to want to send me VEGAN food, I'm hungry here since I can't read any of the ingredients. So let me know if you want to (:-)), and I will send you my address and love you forever and, of course, send you some fun Japanese thing in exchange.

2 1/1 books during the weekend is awesome! I did want to participate as well, but since we have a four year old I doubt a read-a-thon would work out(maybe I'll be able to participate in a read-a-thon one day if he on vaccation at his grandparents).

Iiiik a lizzard? I'm kind of scared of those little creatures.

Glad you are enjoying your new surroundings. My brother lived in Japan for 3 years and loved it.

I would LOVE to visit Japan. It is one of those places that I've wanted to go for a long time and then when I found out that it was an area that interested my husband as well... I have no idea when we will get there but I believe we will someday.
