こんばんは！How are you today/tonight? I hope you had a nice Saturday.
Mine has been a long one… Saturday mornings are similar to weekday mornings in our family because our sons attend Japanese school, which starts at 8am and ends just before noon. This means that I wake up early as usual, then make coffee and get breakfast ready, then wake everyone else up.
Today I took them to school, and my wife and her friend had a “garage sale” at our house. Actually, it was held inside and was advertised to the local Japanese community. Apparently the house was packed, coffee and snacks were enjoyed, and many things got sold! Sounds like a big party, doesn’t it?
But while she was busy doing that, I had a nice relaxing walk around downtown Austin. I actually parked at my favorite book store, BookPeople, then walked all around. Instead of walking on the major streets, I tried to take the alleyways between the streets which are much more interesting to me! I stumbled across the food truck in the photo above, which was painted by Pee Yellow of Peelander-Z, a band we have seen a couple times. Pee Yellow is an acquaintance of ours (a friend of a friend) and his artwork is very recognizable! It surprised me when I came across the food truck, but I guess it was in its normal overnight “nesting place”.
I really enjoyed my morning photo walk, and was happy that I could have a few hours to decompress and get some exercise. Very refreshing!
Tonight is pretty cold, getting down to the 30s in our neighborhood. ❄️ Stay warm wherever you are!
