An other month under Medina’s belt and an other year under mine this weekend. We had beautifully warm, sunny weather and friends to to share the occasions with: a good day all in all.
We also experienced “yellow dust” for the first time this weekend. It apparently blows across from somewhere in China around this time of the year but while we were told about it in Geoje we never saw it there.
The first I knew of it was when I got into the car and noticed the windscreen needed cleaning. Nothing unusual there as there have been strong winds most days leaving a fine layer of muck everywhere. The difference was the dust suddenly turning bright, mustard powder yellow when swished to one side of the screen by wiper and washer-fluid. My guess is we have just had a light sprinkling as I have heard stories about it being visible in the air and a breathing hazard on bad days – something I have no particular desire to experience firsthand.
Come rain, shine, wind or otherwise Medina continues to grow at a strong pace and is becoming more and more mobile. Crawling is already so easy it is boring and most waking hours are spent pulling up using anything that will provide purchase (such as the sofa in the example below). There have been a few falls and bumped heads but nothing is going to deter her. Chances are I will be writing about first steps next month.
