Life Lately: End of Summer 2013

August is almost over omigawd! Children are going back to school, plaids and boots are being displayed in stores, and festival gear and flower garlands are slowly making their way into storage boxes. I just want to stretch my toes in the lingering rays of sunshine and pretend that summer 2013 is not already nearing its end. 

Here's what I've been up to lately:

The clouds from my apartment one spectacular afternoon- my view to the north: Namsan Mountain and N Seoul Tower...

...and my view to the east: the Han River.

A little bit of afternoon delight: warm chocolate chip cookie from Ben's Cookies and a mini cup of ice-cold foamy skim milk in my cow cup.

Went to my salon to try out different hairstyles for the boy's Masters Ball coming up at the end of this month. I love this look but it does get a bit messy quickly. More hair pins necessary, perhaps?

I love a quick pick-me-up mid-afternoon to offset those after-lunch drowsies: a shot of expresso poured over a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

A delicious noodle dish from Myeongdong Gyoza (명동교자). This place is literally a hole in the wall (they don't even serve soft drinks!) but is an institution in Seoul, famous worldwide for their noodles and dumplings. They're experts in what they do, and they'd better be: they only have four items on their menu. After a bit of shopping in Myeongdong, there's nothing more delicious than this giant bowl of noodle soup.

The boy popped over from Germany to participate in a bit of wrestling shenanigans with Perseus at the park.

Grilled Korean BBQ- cuts of marbled beef, pork, shrimp, pumpkin, three different types of mushrooms... heaven.

Caught this butterfly and dandelion sharing a smooch.

Walking Perseus at the park near my house.

He is such a cutie pie!

Berry Bingsoo: shaved ice with a scoop of froyo on top, sprinkled liberally with blueberries, strawberries, red currants. Yum!

Perseus sits oh so prettily when I take him to restaurants. 

How goeth your summer 2013 so far? Looking forward to the crisp weather of autumn?
