08:03 pm: Never underestimate my ability to shop
I set out bright and early for Kyoto this morning, arriving about 8am. I found my way to the flea market without much trouble, and browsed leisurely. I was glad I got there early, because by 10am, the place was so crowded there was hardly room to move. Luckily, I had completed my purchasing by that point and was ready to go. I actually spent less than I had alotted myself...though I must add in all honesty that this was in no way due to any will power on my part.

No, I stopped short of my limit because my purchases had gotten so HEAVY that if I bought one more thing my arms would fall off. If I hadn't brought some soft gloves along, I'm sure that my fingers would not have survived. I decided to take my bags back to my apartment. By the time I got to Moriyama Station, my shoulders were so sore that I couldn't face the 15 minute walk home and took a taxi instead.

I had originally planned to return to spend the afternoon looking at the red leaves, which is Kyoto's specialty this time of year. But I was so pooped from just carrying things that I couldn't bring myself to leave my apartment again.

The nice thing is, I have TWO MORE DAYS in which I can go back if I want to.

I spent the rest of the afternoon playing on my computer and finishing up the last of the square dance accessories.

Time for a shopping cart!

Your experience brings back memories of living in Costa Rica. I remember trying to carry back watermelon, papaya, pineapple, bananas, etc. Sometimes Bob and I walk to Country Market, but we take the shopping cart along.

Congratulations on finishing the square dance accessories. I've already been telling people about them. I'm so excited!

Love,
Mom

I put the package in the mail today, so you should get it soon. I really hope it all fits. The buttonholes on the shirt are kinda tight, but they should all work. And I hope the tie turned out right. If there's a problem with it, let me know, and I can make another one.

Thank you so much!

I can't imagine any problem with the tie. There are always variations. The important part is that they match, I think.

We'll be on the lookout for the package.

Love,
Mom
