“Running Shoes” Cedar Park, 2017

こんばんは。How’s it going?

I started running again, and today I ran for the third time in a week and a half. I hadn’t run for a year or so, so my legs were so sore!

But it’s a good soreness… not painful, but the type of soreness that shows that you made a good effort.

Usually, when I start running again, I can begin increasing my distance after about 3 or 4 runs and recovery, so I anticipate getting back on track this week. But, since I am almost 50, it’s only natural that it could take longer. (I can’t believe I am getting close to 50!)

I hope you had a nice day!

“Revolving Sushi” Austin, 2017

こんばんは。How’s it going?

Today Bay and I went to a new restaurant here in Austin, Kula Sushi. This is a conveyor belt-type sushi restaurant, where plates of sushi and other goodies travel by your table on a small track, and you just pick the sushi that looks good to you. The price is calculated by counting the number of plates you used. What’s cool is that you slip the plates into a slot by the table, and it is automatically counted.

Besides the regular conveyor belt, there is a second belt which delivers items that you can order from each table’s iPad. It’s really fun, and the custom orders speed to your table pretty quickly. See the video below to watch our mackerel sushi arriving.

I’d have to say Kula Sushi is pretty good, but it can’t match the sushi from a nice Japanese restaurant with more experienced chefs. Still, it’s fun, convenient, and a good value. Just be prepared for a bit of a wait since it’s relatively new and popular.

I hope you had a nice Saturday!

こんばんは。How’s it going?

Today I printed out a few photos on our Canon MG7120 photo printer. I’ve been using some relatively cheap ink cartridges by Skia for a while now, and I think the color is pretty good. Because it’s not as expensive as the name-brand ink, I don’t mind making photo prints. And it’s nice to have both small Instax prints and larger 4×6 (and sometimes 8×10) prints.

I don’t think many people make prints of their photos. But, if you try, it might become addicting! Now looking for some nice photo albums to fill up. 😀
