This is the first time my blog has gotten a mention on another blog (I have gotten personally been mentioned before, but not my blog), and I am completely overwhelmed and grateful!!! Thank you to the Recessionista, and thank you to all the people who have decided to stop by my blog. Thank you also to my long time friends who have mentioned me personally on their blogs! I find a lot of great blogs due to the recommendation of my friends, and I’m hoping that some of you also feel the same way!
As requested by the Recessionista…
Here’s a quick update of the ume syrup I made previously!
(Here is my original post)
After 3 weeks:
All the liquid is from the plums! I tasted the syrup today and it is sweet and tart – very refreshing for the summer! I’ll drink it diluted with club soda!
I really consider July to be the start of summer here in Japan. Summer vacation starts in July, plus it doesn’t get really hot until July. How have you been enjoying summer so far?
It’s also the time of the month to join Notes from the Toothfairy in A Piece of Me!
I like: that I’ve lost nearly 5 kg in the past year… according to my annual health exam. That explains why I have been asked on 3 different occasions if I have lost weight recently.
I don’t like: that I didn’t do anything special to lose the weight – because that means I lost it through stress.
I want you to know: that I REALLY appreciate any mentions and any links to my blog from yours! Thank you so much!!! It really helps me to understand what kind of posts my viewers like!
I’ve planned: to go to the UK in September and to Hawaii in December!! Let me know if anyone is available to meet up!!!
I want to say to someone special: Thank you for being such a fantastic friend, and for understanding my problems!!!
