I haven't had too much to say lately. Guess I have hit a block or something. It's been real busy here, and I am struggling with being tired. Also I have been getting over a cold or something that has been really rough and drained my energy quickly. Anyways I hope to be back sometime, but I think I will be taking a break for a bit.

Well, I asked if anyone knew what the picture was in my last post...and yes it was poo! It's not the poo that amazes me, but what we did with poo. We went to a museum here and they had a display set up on poo and some of the things it can be used for.
|This was some sort of tea made from some animal droppings...I want to say catapillars, but I can't remember.|
This one I was most amazed at...you could take pooh from rabbits, girraffes, and some other animal, and make a Poo Poo strap. I think it's meant to hang like a charm from your cell phone. The poo was sealed and it just amazed me that they would think to take something like that and turn it into a profit. We paid 200 yen for each poo strap. One of the mom's we went with convinced me that we should make one...so we did. I mean when else would one consider playing with well...poo?

Looks like we are moving, doesn't it? Nope, not yet. This was our great deals that we got at our stores case lot sale. Being overseas, I oftentimes think we don't get a lot of great deals. But we hit the jackpot this time. We got Captain Crunch cereal for 99 CENTS a box. Now for us that was a GREAT deal. The kids were really excited, because it is the Berry kind! We got 28 boxes of Captain crunch plus more boxes of other cereal, and some other food items. We got all this for about $129 dollars! I love great deals!
I finally learned how to do oragami! I have wanted to learn how to make oragami, but had never been able to do it. A friend of mine showed me how to make these oragami boxes. Might come in handy at Christmas!
Our kids got to make some bread at our homeschool group. They had such fun and enjoyed eating the bread they had made.
Well that's all for the randomness post...Oh one more thing...can you guess what this is? I'll tell you in my next post!!! The Japanese amaze me sometime...they can make something out of anything!
