The Late Summer ~夏を惜しんで~

Posted by mittanr on   1 comments   0 trackback

夏の終わりはちょっぴり寂しい。。。

Hi, thanks for coming to my blog!

I sometimes feel a lovely cool breeze recently.
Autumn is coming soon, isn't it?
Because September will start in two days! Time flies!!

I'm happy it's getting cool, but I wonder why I feel lonely around summer end.

I had been very busy in this summer, and I had a lot of wonderful time!

And I hope you all still enjoy the end of this summer.

This is my favorite soda water.

もちろん、ぜ~んぶ美味しかったぁ

Hi, thank you for your visit.
By the way, do you like vegetables?
What is your favorite vegetable?
I really like tomato.

And do you know there are how many kinds of tomatoes in the world?
I heard there are about ten thousand kinds!
Wow, it's unbelievable, isn't it?

Well, I got a gift of tomato from my sister last week.
I was really glad! Thanks~~!
And, three kinds of tomatoes in the box, and they were soooo beautiful!
So, first I took photos of these tomatoes.
And I'd like to show you them today.

Toscana Violet (トスカーナバイオレット)007_tomato.jpg
This was born in North Italian Tuscany known as the wine making area.
They have red purple color like grape, small and a little sour and sweet.
I made a nice salad with the other vegetables.

Piccola Canaria (ピッコラカナリア)013_tomato.jpg
They are yellow, so sweet and mini-tomatoes. I love them, so I ate them
as snacks.

Sicilian Rouge (シシリアンルージュ)010_tomato.jpg
This type of tomatoes were born in Siciliennes in the Mediterranean.
Their looks is clear red and oval shape, and they fit to cook.
So I made tomato sauce for spaghetti.

Yeah, my family and I enjoyed eating tomato everyday, so we are healthy
and happy!!

今日からブログの名前を「Michiko's happy blog」に変更しました

A revival way for pottery ~金繕い~

Posted by mittanr on   4 comments   0 trackback

‘金繕い’初体験~ 大切で思い出深い陶器が見事によみがえりました

Last Saturday, I tried Kintsukuroi(金繕い)for the first time.

"Kintsukuroi" is to repair the pottery that lacked and cracked by Japanese lacquer and gold.
We also call "Kintsugi(金継ぎ)" or "Kinnaoshi(金直し)" about that.
I think it is a revival way for pottery peculiar to Japan.

Actually I had wanted to repair a pottery from before.
It's a very precious and memorial pottery for me.
So I really happy I could repair it!
Besides, the lesson was easy ,nice and so inexpensive.
I was very glad it revived beautifully!!

ヒビが入って使えなくなっていたのです。。。

金繕い 177_金繕い
漆と金粉と薄め液を混ぜたものを細い筆で描いたり、塗りつぶしたりします。
欠けてる場合はまず粘土で補修して、やすりで削ってから塗ります

018_金繕い
ヒビが入っていたところが綺麗な模様みたいでしょ? 縁も塗り足して、傑作~

If you have pottery that lacked and cracked, I recommend to do Kintsukuroi!

Sea Kayaking   ~シーカヤック~

毎年恒例のシーカヤックツアーに今年の夏も参加 
沖に出た時に感じる海の静けさ。。。ちっぽけな自分にも気付きます

Hello, thank you for your visit.

By the way, did you go to the sea already this summer?
I heard people have been avoiding the marine leisure in Japan this summer.
Yeah, I think it can't be helped.

But, I went to do sea kayaking with my husband and his friends last weekend.
We go to Miura in Kanagawa Prefecture to join the tour for sea kayaking every summer.
I'm not good at sea kayaking though this was the fourth for me, so I always follow the others with all my might.
But I can feel the quietness of the sea when I'm in the offing alone.
And I'm always impressed with the large-scale sea and nature at that time.

Well, we landed on a secret beach that is about five kilometers away from the starting beach.

And we enjoyed snorkeling and eating lunch at there.
We could see some tropical fish and marine creatures at there.
And I was surprised to find a lot of sea urchin!

In the return, the wave was a little high, so I felt tired to paddle, but we all returned safely.
We had a really wonderful time this summer too!!

The blueberry  ~ブルーベリー・ジャングル~

Posted by mittanr on   4 comments   0 trackback

毎年巨大化する実家のブルーベリーの木。まるでジャングルみたいです。。。

The other day, I picked blueberries in the fruit garden with my parents.
The garden is a small orchard of some fruit that my father started as his
hobby in my hometown Kumamoto.
There are trees such as blueberry, persimmon, chestnut, summer orange, little apple, kiwi fruit and grape, etc.
And, it was the best season for blueberry this time.
ブルーベリー080_
My parents are amateur, so the blueberry have been becoming the mass of giant trees like a jungle!
But, they had a rich crop this year.
So, we harvested blueberries about 4kg in only one hour!!
ブルーベリー098_
After that, my mother and I sorted blueberries into two for fresh blueberry
and jam.
And my mother usually gives jam that she made to neighbors.
It was really delicious and wonderful!!!

I knew it was a hard work to harvest, sort blueberries and make jam.
And, I think these blueberries are so delicious because filled with a lot of love and hand.
