Hi, thank you for coming to my blog. How was your weekend? I joined a bus tour with my husband and his friend. And we went to the Norikura highlands and enjoyed seeing alpine plants and watching birds. The place was so beautiful and cool! I felt really happy!! By the way, when you go to the Norikura highlands you can't go in the place by your own car. Because there is the regulation of cars at the place. I think it must be the reason the place has been keeping the beautiful nature.
Hello, thank you very much for coming to my blog always. Yesterday, I visited my English teacher's house,and we enjoyed making barbeque hamburgers, potato salad, spinach and vegetable's cream soup and fresh fruit dessert with whipped walnut cream, etc. Her house is very old, it has been built since about eighty years. But she has a really cozy and nice room and a wonderful garden. We used some herbs for the food and drinks from her garden. All food and drinks were SO delicious and yesterday's weather was perfect! Yeah, we had a very very fun and wonderful time!!
Fresh fruit, whipped walnut cream dessert and herb water
Fruity shochu martini with sweet lemon verbena
Those food and drinks were very exciting and delicious! I think Japanese can't think of the idea like them. So, I'd like to know world food and try to cook the interesting food more. Yes, therefore, I want to be able to communicate in English!!
Hi, how was your day? I arranged planters in the veranda of my house today. And I met a baby of mantis at that time! Wow!! I was really surprised because I don't like insects. But, it was about 1cm, very small, and I was interested in the funny motion. He/She was the certainly mantis!
I hope he/she would grow up. Good luck!

Toooooo hot! It's a terrible heat today too, isn't it? Now, the rainy season has ended?? Right then, the really summer has started! Yeah, we have to try to save on electricity. And we need to think about nuclear power plant. It's a complicated problem, but, we have to think about it seriously.
Today, we went to my mother-in-law's house, and visited the grave with her and other relatives for OBON. Usually, my husband's family has OBON in July. There is the grave at Shinjuku in Tokyo,but the place is very quiet in the grove. After that we enjoyed the tea time and talking. So my mother-in-law was in a good mood and looked very happy!
How was your weekend? My husband and I went to Hakone overnight trip with my friend's married couple because they invited us to Hakone hot springs. We enjoyed drinking, eating nice food and talking a lot. Yeah, we took a good spa of course! For us, it was the first trip together. However we felt relaxed, and had a wonderful time!
Yesterday, I took the English lesson as usual. And I practiced the pronunciation about some words. It's difficult to pronounce "W" for me. For example, when I said " woman" , my teacher heard like " ooman", it sounds strange. Um...I need to practice with pursing up my mouth!
Hi, it was a muggy day again, wasn't it? When I watched the TV this morning, I was shocked at the news of the heavy rain in my hometown Kumamoto. And I was worried about my parents, my sister's family, relatives and friends. Besides one of my friends in Tokyo went to Kumamoto just today! So we called or emailed each other, and other people asked me about their safety. Fortunately, they all were safe, so I was relieved. However, I'm really sorry for sufferers. I hope the rainy season will be over soon.
Hi, thank you very much for coming to my blog. Actually I was thinking about this blog recently whether I should continue or finish. Because I need to do reading, listening and speaking English more rather than writing. But I don't have enough time to study. So, I told about that to my favorite English teacher. She said if I don't change my goal, I should continue this blog. My goal is to become a cool bilingual grandmother in the future. Of course I don't want to give up. So, I decided to keep writing this blog. Thank you so much for reading my article always. I'll do my best!
Wow! July has started already! How was your weekend? I went to the Yatsugatake highlands with my husband and his friends. It was a beautiful day and we enjoyed bird watching from early morning. And we went to the nice shop "Yatsugatake club" and had lunch and then, we bought some vegetables at a direct sale's shop. Ah, I also ate an ice-cream cone of course!
