Well, it’s that time of year again when my bf travels back to Korea to visit his family. He will be leaving Wednesday morning, so I will be dropping him off at the airport before I go to work. He goes almost every year and at least once a year. I think one year it was more, but generally it’s about once and it’s around this time, toward the end of summer. I don’t look forward to this time and I know Chester doesn’t either (although he doesn’t really realize it). I bore him I’m pretty sure because whenever it is just Chester and I, he mostly sleeps because I’m either reading, watching a something on Netflix/Amazon Prime, or on the internet. We do get a lot of cuddling time in though 😉
Although it makes me sad when he goes to Korea, I know it’s for the better. He needs to keep in touch with his family and this is much better than an email or quick phone call. Sometimes I feel like he is losing sight of his family’s culture, which is not necessarily his own anymore. Also, I want him to be able to speak Korean since he hardly ever gets to here. He almost always speaks in English. It’s also a good time for him to eat all the foods that he misses when he’s here.
Nevertheless, it’s no fun when he’s gone. We do everything together in our spare time. Not to mention, it’s kind of creepy being alone here. I hate sleeping alone! It used to be worse when it was just me, but not that I have Chester at least I will have some sort of company. We have coyotes around here, I’ve seen them. Funny, my bf has never really seen one and we were outside one night and a coyote walks by. My bf just stood frozen and said, “What the heck is that?” Because it’s wild America here and I don’t see that well in glasses, I will not be going outside at night by myself. A good example of this happened yesterday when I was outside looking for pinecones. It wasn’t even dark, but I didn’t notice the family of 5 deer like 10 feet from me. I was so freaked out when I heard them pulling leaves off the tree. I ran inside and got my camera and here they are.
I already have plans to go to my mother’s house this coming weekend. I learned how to make wire sculpture trees and I’m going to make one for my mom. Here’s a picture that I took of the two trees I made. I put a felted bird that I made in one of the trees and it looks creepy. It was more of me being funny than anything. I have a good 60 ft of wire left and will be treeing it up when I’m all by myself.
I know these are a lot of random, sprawled thoughts, but that’s what I’m all about 🙂 Thanks for reading!
