Another storm?

I heard a couple of days ago that another tropical storm is headed for Seoul. Unfortunately, it's true. It's supposed to hit Tuesday. It probably won't be as big as Kompasu, but still, I'm sick of the rain. It's raining and thundering right now as a matter of fact. Good thing we took Grace on a little outing this morning because we might be stuck inside this afternoon.

Speaking of Kompasu, I did not realize how many trees it uprooted along our little walking path here. Yesterday I took Grace out for grocery shopping and a walk, and saw lots of debris scattered eveywhere, and quite a few toppled trees. I've never been exposed to any really severe weather, like hurricanes, and I hope I never am. Wee little Kompasu is enough for me.Grace is just adorable these days, but she really has a mind of her own now. She wants to do whatever she wants and doesn't really care if I try to persuade her otherwise. We stopped to look at the river for a while and she couldn't understand why she couldn't just jump in. Then, trying to take her away from the river was even harder. The last straw when when we passed the playground to get to our apartment building. A perfectly nice outing ended in a full-blown tantrum. I guess no one said the toddler years were easy.

I definitely can't hear anything at night, nor feel the wind, with these double-paned windows! Such a blessing!

That's good Dani. Our building is kind of old and the windows are flimsy. :(

I've been a long time reader of your blog, and I just want to say how much I admire your ability to take care of Grace and do a million other things all at once! Good luck with the application :)

Anonymous - Haha, thanks! Maybe I make it seem here like I do more than I actually do. Usually if I go on a knitting spurt or something, other things suffer, like the housework and cooking. The clothes on the drying rack have been hanging there a week (dry). We had to order donkatsu and udon tonight for dinner because I didn't cook. I like to think I take good care of Grace, but I'm not very good at domestic things.

Lita - Thank you. I think she keeps getting cuter.
