My husband is on a holiday today because he has to go to the hospital. He goes to the hospital once in every two months. Three years ago, on February, it was a cold day when he went back to the house from a walk for our dog. I heard him shouting. I didn't know what happened. And then, I brought him to the hospital. The examination result showed that he has glaucoma. Glaucoma is very terrible disease because it can cause person to gradually lose their sight. Patient's who suffer from this disease won't notice it early till they lose their sight . According to research, among 4 people there is 1 patient of glaucoma. Recently, there are medicines invented for this disease . It will help the cure the disease. I thought he is lucky because his disease is already cured. He used to smoke heavily. He quit smoking after he knew that he has glaucoma.
It is often said that people with a slight ailment are more careful about their health and thus can live longer than those who are never ill.
I went to kyusyu with my mother. We stayed there for one night and two days. It took us about 2 hours to travel by bullet train. I stayed at Beppu city. Beppu is famous for hot springs There are many hot springs in Beppu. I saw steaming around this town. I saw steaming pond, park, house, building etc. It looks warm.
This is a picture of a gull. I took a picture of it from the hotel's porch. There are many sea gulls. They were tamed by the people. I went out of the hotel to look out some birds and took some pictures. It was drizzling that morning. If weather was good , I could have seen the horizon
This is a picture of a pond. The name of the pond is Kinrinko. I've always wanted to go there. I was glad I was able to finally visit the place. It was very beautiful pond. There was a hot spring at the buttom of the pond. The steam rose from the pond . The water from the pond was warm but fishes still inhabited there. There are three geese. They look comfortable.
This is a picture of Mt Yufu. Mt Yufu is an active volcano. The volcano is surrounded with black stones. It erupted 2,000 years ago. It is still active until now but there is no longer smoke. I had a pleasant trip with my mother. When I was child, I went there with my family. We tour around Kyusyu in summer time. I cherish the memory of my dead father. There were pleasant memories anywhere.
I live in a housing estate in the suburbs of Hiroshima. My house is close to the mountains. There is a pond near my house. There is a vacant space near the pond. Two years ago, I found a Creasted Kingfisher visiting the pond everyday in the evening . I believe he is visiting his nest I’m very happy everytime I see the Creasted Kingfisher I like Creasted Kingfisher like the other kinds of Kingfisher. The bird is so cool. I use to go there every evening. The area is not vacant anymore when I visited the place last year. There was a house built in that area . I was very disappointed. I stopped the car and took a picture of the Creasted Kingfisher. Then one day, I noticed that there were no more Kingfisher in that place. I felt lonely. But today, I noticed that they came back to the pond. I heard them chirping. I went there in a hurry. It's been a long time since I haven't seen a Creasted Kingfisher there. I stopped in the middle of the mountain road. I'm very happy!
I have a little money after payday. Dog and cats food are running short. And there is no rice for us. We must buy food for us and also for our cats and dog. I planned to withdraw money from my ATM.
Oh,I have money box just like a cash register. I checked it. And then, there are a lot of money. \45,000! I forgot about secret money. Oh, I'm lucky. And I went shopping for our food. I bought ice cream and shortcake too. I ate two chocolate ice cream. I’m feeling bad from eating too much. グレーの貯金箱（ＡＴＭ）は、開けるのに暗証番号とカードが必要です（笑）
I am an early riser. I believed the saying, “Early bird catches worms.” And I’m busy always. Because I want to do a lot of things. But I notice, having a slow life is a good thing. I got up at 5:30 this morning. And I made breakfast and my husband’s lunch. And I had seen him off to work. And then I went back to bed. I slept for an hour. I seldom do such a thing. I am looking forward for a healthy life. I will relax during tea time and I will enjoy walking from now on. Now, I think having a slow life is more important.
It is so cold today. But the sun is shining now. The snow will melt this afternoon I think.
I went to the hospital for an examination of my large intestine last year. I am worried about the result of my examination. I will know the result later this afternoon. Basing from research, there is one cancer patient among three persons in Japan . If I have cancer, I don't know what to do. I am 5？ years old but I still have dreams. I want to go to many f oreign countries and take picttures. My best friend and my father died because of cancer. When my father died I felt so lonely for a long time. I can't get over it easily.
It is so cold today. It's been snowing for three days. The ground was covered with snow this morning. But it melted in the afternoon. And then I went to the river. I met fairy kingfisher. It is a female kingfisher. Her name is SORAMI. I named her SORAMI. She was born last year. Her chest wings are colored orange and partially gray. Fishes doesn’t move this season beacause it’s so cold. The kingfisher hovered overhead to look and catch a fish I took some pictures. I had fun.
It is very pretty cold this morning. Dark clouds covered the sky. When I left home, it rained. And the rain passed into snow. I went to kimono lesson today. Kimono lesson is like exercise. It was fun. Seat obi need big strength. Before putting on the kimono, it's cold. When I was wearing the kimono, it's pretty hot already. Winter kimono is good,I think.
When I woke up I had a neck aching this morning. I got a crick in my neck while sleeping. I changed pillow last night. It was a little bit high I think. The aching is so sore. I can’t do house cleaning. I can’t do anything. I’m rarely like this. I had nothing to do all day.
My husband’s holiday is done. He went to school this morning to work.. I overslept this morning. I forgot to set the alarm clock last night. My husband went to the school's party last night. He went home late. I was very sleepy this morning because I went to bed late last night. I went out for a walk with my dog and did some household chores. I checked the stock market and watched the economy's news. I don't have a pleasant time because I felt so bored and tired. It is winter time. I want to go to the river but the weather is changeable. It's a good season for bird watching.
I kept myself busy with work everyday. I heard the sound of the bells from the temple on New Year's Eve . I bid goodbye to the old year and welcomed the new year while listening to the ringing of the bells . The bells are struck 108 times continuously.. This symbolizes that a human being has 108 evil thoughts.. I had a good time because my son's & daughter's family came to my house.. My dream for New year's day came true. I went to the river and took some pictures of the Kingfisher..It was snowing when I woke up in the morning. So I thought of going to the river late in the afternoon. It was a clear day..I went to the shrine on the 3rd of January..I pay homage at the shrine. I wished world peace and good health to everyone
