A surprised visit

We were sleeping when my hubby's cellphone rang. It was 10a.m. and his friend called 'cause he wanted to have breakfast with him. My hubby doesn't eat breakfast and we usually sleep until noon on weekends. My hubby just told him to come home because we have lots of dishes. We visited my mother in law yesterday and she gave us 5 or more kinds of side dishes except the main dish that we had to eat last night but we dined out so we still have the duck stew (main dish). I think I already mentioned that Koreans eat different kinds of side dishes every meal.

We got up as soon as hubby received the phone call 'cause I needed to prepare breakfast. I just served all the dishes that my mother in law gave and added some side dishes that we had in the refrigerator. After breakfast, hubby's friend walk around the house to check everything in the house. He entered the rooms, touched everything that amazed him and he even opened the cupboards and refrigerator. Did I get angry? Of course not! I already got used to it. Besides it's Sunday today and I've done all the household chores yesterday. On Saturdays, I always clean the house because I always expect a surprised visit like this. My in laws, hubby's friends and sometimes my friends. Well, we were happy to hear some good words from hubby's friend. He got a good impression and we're happy that he likes our nest.

Grapes Festival

Yesterday my hubby invited me to buy some fruits. There are lots of fruits stands here but because it has been a long time since we gone out so we decided to go to Grapes Plantation. First, to get some fresh air. Second, it's cheaper to go to plantation. Third, the fruits are fresh.

We were on our way to the Goseo Podobat that we've been before but we saw these big balloons.

They balloons that you see when there's a festival. If you wanna go to a festival, just follow the balloons hanging in the air and you can reach the place. Or if you see this kind of balloons that means they are holding a festival in that place.

After a few minutes we saw this place. Luckily, the people in Goseo are celebrating the Grapes Festival. There are many tents who are selling grapes. They also made a stage and put lots of chairs. It seems like they will also hold a singing competition.

There are also some games like catching fish in the pond.

But we didn't go there to join them in the fun but to buy grapes. Besides it was too hot so after buying two boxes of grapes, we drove home.

We gave the one box for my sister in law and another box for us.

What a strange weather

My mother in law called while I was at work. She said she prepared dinner for us. That was too early for dinner because she told us to go straight to her house after our work and that was 5:00 o'clock. It wasn't raining when we left from work but on our way to my mother in law, it rained a lot. We were scared because we couldn't see the street. The raindrops was too big with strong wind. The cars walked too slow and the orange lights of the cars twinkled as a warning sign. A few kilometers away, the road was drier and it seems like there was only rainshower in that area and after a few kilometers we saw the dry road and sunny weather. It was too strange and funny. It seems like we went to another country. A rainy season and then went to a dry season. My mother in law was surprised when we said that there was heavy rain a few kilometers away from her house. What a strange weather!~
