Paint Day Wednesday

I have not been squealing like a pig lately because i've been quite busy!
I'm working at the Karate Studio monday-friday in the after school program from 2:30 - 6:30 pm and then I take class from 7:00 - 7:45pm.  I still do nails a few days a week.  I still junk and I still have two booths at two different places.  I'm on the Demo Team for Karate and will soon be teaching a Kickboxing class at the Karate Studio three days a week...somebody stop me please!!!  Why can't I just be normal and maybe do just two things at a time?

I painted this old chair that I found at a thrift store a few wednesdays ago.

I painted the table today.
I found it on the 400 mile yard sale last month.

Cross Your Fingers!

Here I am with my Book Club "The Reading Lasses."
We recently read Lisa Scottoline's book "Think Twice"
 then entered our photo in  Lisa's Book Club  drawing photo contest
If you read "Think Twice" you will understand
 why we all look so much alike...Can you guess which one is me?
If we are lucky we will win a visit from Lisa and dinner on her!
If you have not read any of Lisa's books you should add her to your list .
She is one of my favorite authors.

We began our day with a Cruise ...

 Our next stop was Cheonjiyeon Waterfalls.

   Jeju Island is famous for pork which we cooked ourselves at the table for dinner tonight.. 
Jeju Island is also famous forit's fish and that was our dinner last night.

Time to get packed - we're off to Seoul tomorrow!

Korea Day Three...Put a Fork in me I'm Done...with Chopsticks!

My peepers popped open at 2:00 am but I refused to get up that early...I finally stopped pretending at
 4:0 0am and just got up.
Jeree and I met Master Simmons for breakfast and that was when it happened...Piggy went hog wild! 

Due to the lack of forks and repeated yet unsuccessful "Chopstick Lessons" from everybody and I do mean everybody...  I think  they were all getting a bit burned out and slghtly embarassed for  me when I began stabbing things with the chopsticks...

Well...lets just say that I was forced to liberate a fork and a spoon from breakfast at the hotel this morning. These two will be my constant companions for the remainder of the trip! (A lady at Dinner this evening asked me where I got my fork...once I finished laughing... I was forced to tell her how I had to commit a crime earlier in the daythen suggested that she should probably do the same thing tomorrow morning ...I'll bet I could have sold her these babies for a pretty price right about then!

Whimsy- this made me think of you- I missed you this week!

This is our group.  Me, Tyler (Master Kim's son), Mastet Kim, Master Simmons & Jeree.

If we don't arrive at the bus on time our Tour Giude will make us sing...we are always early!

This was our first stop on the Dae Ku City Tour.

View from the top of the tower.

I'm not sure if Tyler asked or if Master Kim suggested that he should be a little more out going.

Either way, next thing we know, Tyler was on the move.
Tyler...hey dude...WAIT!!!...I really don't think Master Kim
 meant that you had to go out on top of the tower
and take a 70ft jump! 

Being the thrill seekers that we are, Jeree and I decided to watch the landing from below...this decision also provided with a great exit stragety should anything go wrong!

Let's just say that Tyler has his feet firmly planted back on the ground for now.. soon a we managed to lose these two we were back on the road again!

Our next stop was the Traditional Korean Medicine Market and Museum.

I'm afraid to even ask what's in these jars...

If you find that you lie awake at night wondering exactly what really is in the jars... 
 I suggest that you call the number on the front of the building...

What is Tyler up to now? I think he's really going overboard with this "getting out more" thing...
Wait til Master Kim hears about this one...dresses and crowns?!

After lunch we attended  the Young Chun Taekwondo Tournament.
Each country was represented.  Today was the opening ceremony for the five day event.

So much more to show and tell but is 1:45 am here and I must get to sleep.
