My father has been teaching wood carving since about ten years. This wooden picture is the newest one made by my father. He has been carving a famous picture in a sheet of board. You recognize this picture, don't you? Yes, it's "Girl with a Pearl Earring" painted by Dutch painter Johannes Vermeer. I'm impressed with his technique and passion for carving always. Yeah,I proud of my father.;)
I know I should study English more. And it's important to enjoy learning in order to continue. The day before yesterday,one of my English teachers lent his books to me. The book's title are "THE VEGETABLE BIBLE" and "gourmet vegetarian". Yeah, the two books are so interesting and useful for me! Because I also like learning fruit and vegetables, and cooking too. And the photos in these books are very beautiful! Yes, I'll be able to learn English and Vegetables at the same time. Wonderful!! I appreciate my teacher's help. Thank you very much!:)
I have a very small vegetable garden in my veranda. These are organic and chemical-free vegetables. Last year, I took a training course of Home Eco Farmer. The goal of the course is to find out myself through the activity. I've been really enjoying the time in my small garden recently. Yes, I felt happy when I saw the sprouts, flowers and seeds, and ate the green or fruits, of course. And I learned it's important to trust the power of plants. Because they don't need too much water and sunshine. We shouldn't do unnecessary care to them. I think it's a same thing for human beings too. Yeah, It's so interesting! And I love and trust them. ;)
It was a warm and sunny day today! We went driving to Shonan area. There were still white snow on the hill, so it made a beautiful contrast with a blue sky! And we could see Mt.Fuji from there. It was a wonderful view. Yeah!! ;)

I walked in winter's wood. The sounds I heard at there were only twitters of birds and the sounds of old leaves. The cold wind went through my head and body, and I felt comfortable. I want to take off unnecessary things from my heart. And I'd like to live more simply.
Hello,thanks for visiting my blog. How was your new year's holiday? I attended two reunions at the beginning of the New Year. One was the 30th anniversary after graduation of high school. I really enjoyed talking with my teachers and friends at the big party in Kumamoto. Another one was the lunch with my friends at a nice restaurant in Tokyo. When I studied abroad in Cebu Island I had a wonderful time with them. We have met after about four years. I was very glad to meet them, because they have been living their own life each happily. And I expect meeting with new people and old friends this year!
This is the Year of the Snake in Chinese astrology, isn't it? And snakes molt as you know. So, my resolution is to slough off my bad habit and negative thinking. And my goal of this year is to get confident in myself!
