Anyone who know me knows that I am not a morning person. And they also know that I am a sucker for small furry faces. So when my son's dogs decided that they would like to go out for a walk this morning at 6 am, out we went. We ran into this juicy looking brown snail, which my French grandfather, Emile, would have deemed delicious. But we let it live to slime another day. (After giving it a really good sniff, of course.)
It was already light out, which you early risers would know, but I never count on daylight until at least 7 am.
And I actually figured out how to use the Fitbit, fitness tracker - which shows my half mile dog walk at 6 this morning, including the two minutes we ran just for fun. Good Times!
For fun, here are a few of the exotic items for sale across the street at the H-Mart, a huge Korean grocery store that is part of a chain.
Prices range from unbelievably high to incredibly low - and come early for the best produce. I snagged this enormous English style cucumber on sale for 49 cents!
But would have had to pay around $15 for this bag of Perilla seeds, which are used in Korean cooking. I might buy these next time.
This is the frozen bulk foods section, with Fish Balls, Tiny Korean Sausages, and some other oddities - scoop just what you want into a bag.
Hard to tell how shiny and blue these Crabs were - and how live!
Juice Boxes and Pannetone, left over from Christmas, I assume, since who thinks to pick up their Panetone at the Korean grocers.
And there's a sale on Duck Eggs.
