Ali got a package from Japan! Uki is helping me!

Ali got a much anticipated package from Japan yesterday.  He got good grades in Arabic and he swindled 30OR out of his dad; which is roughly about $100.  Sucker!  I don't believe in that necessarily. I believe in reward, in moderation.  Anyway, I ended up ordering on the net and it is gonna kill me.  He did so much research and picked out the few things he wanted but Amazon sends out several packages.  The way I have my mailbox set up in NY is to send over here to Muscat three times a week and it is just gonna kill me.  However, the package from Japan did not cost any additional monies and it got here in a week.  I snapped this pic just to show him setting up the photo for me.  He is a swindler but a doll!


He got some Bakugan thing and a cute note from a little boy and some favorite Japanese treats.  We tore through them!


Then, I started working on a little project, another mug rug for who knows?  Eminem?  Haha.  I'm still jammin' to him and love him.  Back to reality; I found Uki at my sewing machine again.  This time, her motive was not hangin' with me...


It's these little annoying flying-looking ants.  They have been swarming my sewing room lately.  Perhaps because we have the windows open!?


Look closely, can you see it???


Yep, on the foot!  On the right hand side.  Little buggers.  Go Away!

What a fun package! It's always fun to get goodies in the mail.

I'm not thrilled about creepy crawlies & flying insects so this is scary! As a chile, I remeber my mother hanging red chillies from the lights, to dter similiar looking insects & that seemed to work.

Hi Susan. I think now after four posts that you were reading my blog and you are my Swap Mama? heehee...

Those are NOT termites, thank you Lois! Ants have three body parts and termites have two. Whew! These little guys have three!

They don't bit but they are a nuisance and if and when you squish 'em, they are yellow! blahh
