today was the busiest day this week at the cafe. my aunt came early, around 11am. after she left, we got 4 large pick-up orders all happening at the same time, something like 7 bento boxes and an equal amount of bubble tea. we ran out of rice and had to cook some more midway though to complete the orders. while my father and i were plate spinning trying to fulfill the requests, my sister was out front making the bubble teas. once that was over though, things were more manageable, just a slow and steady stream of customers, nothing crazy.
i finally returned home around 4pm. i went to star market briefly to pick up some pineapples and asparagus on sale. later in the evening i made another sandwich for dinner.
