AkiJikan 秋時間 Autumn Time


So, first, happy belated Thanksgiving.
We celebrated it last Sunday so in fact we were ahead but then we got swept up in the week and now we are on the other side, waiting for a pizza to be delivered so we can watch funny tv and draw pictures of the kitchen flowers, while flipping through the tao te ching and a new macrobiotic cookbook.

Second, we've been asked about holiday gifts. I'll let you know what Santa is planning here:
a family-sized keyboard
art supplies for all
a mama-bike

I think the boys would love:
dress-up clothes
Captain Underpants type books
science related books
lego kits
puzzles (100 pieces or so)
iTunes gift cards

Our gift to ourselves in the New Year is to go macrobiotic. This means after the first we would appreciate all care packages to be food free. We appreciate your understanding and support as we change our diet.

How about you? What would you like this holiday? Leave me a comment and I'll make sure to send you something, to thank you for your loyal readership.

This year, I am grateful for all of it. This, that, these, and those. Here, there, everywhere.

I support reading usually but refuse to encourage reading of anything with characters like Professor Poopypants. How about the Magic Tree House?

I didn't realize you were so prejudiced. Poor Dr. Poopypants.
Really, anything to encourage their reading works but I think to reach Sebastian it needs to be funny. He's the one we are really concerned about, though he is top of his class in language studies. In Japanese. That, my friends, is an achievement.
