We have a house in my husband’s country side area. It is a very old and big house. It's more than 100 years since it was built. We're wondering what to do to that house, It's either we are going to renovate it or crash it. There's nobody there. Since It's often snowing there so sometimes the house is gradually broken. Keeping it is so costly. It takes about 1 hour by car. We went there for mowing and house cleaning. My son helped us to mow the grasses. He did a very good job on mowing the grasses. There are good mountains and I love to see it.. But when I was just married with my husband I don't good things I've seen today, I just liked the city.. Now, I realized how beautiful the place I went today.. There are rare plants and ruddykingfisher.
The women in my hometown went for a day trip to Tomonoura Fukuyama, a riverside located in Hiroshima prefecture. There was a Bingo game in the bus. I won the Bingo game for the first time. I was surprised but I’m happy. Hotel’s meal was so good. The fresh fish was especially delicious. The hot spring was in front of the sea. But I didn’t take a bath in the hot spring because I wanted to take a walk in the Tomonoura seaside.
It was nice. The atmosphere felt like in the Taisyo & Syouwa period. I took many pictures. There were lots of stones on the road and slopes. Time flashed by. I lost track of time. I was in a hurry to return to the hotel. Hurriedly, I went back to the hotel. But no taxi was available. I ran breathlessly. When I arrived, everybody was in the bus already. I was about 5 minutes late. Everybody smiled. I apologized. We spent a good day.
古き良き時代って英語で何て言うんだろう～ Old and good period・・・そのまんまぢゃん(^^ゞ
I got up 2:50am. I am waiting with pleasure bird-watching party for today. Today is bird-watching party. I left the house on my car around 3am. It was dark outside. The assembly time is at 5 am. I arrived at 4:20 am. The birds are already singing. Two elderly persons from Yamaguchi prefecture stayed overnight at the mountain. There were 24 members of the bird-watching party. But a heavy fog lay all around. I can't see anything at all including birds. What make things more worse, is that rain started. Regretabbly, today's party ended not so good because of the bad weather. I was disappointed, I have no idea.
I went to the mountain alone. It takes about 1.5 hours by car. I used to pass by the freeway. It was a little bit so far for me. I don't like to pass by the freeway because I'm afraid of the tunnel. There are 6 long tunnels. I can only see this bird only during summer season. They are called Ruddy kingfisher. The bears live in the mountains too. I want to take a picture of young leaves and Ruddy kingfisher. But I didn't see that bird on that day. I heard the bird chirping. It was so cool. The bird usually spends it's summer in Japan. The bird raises it's baby in some other countries of Southeast Asia. My face itches and was swelling because I was bitten by an insect. It was not my day. There will be a bird-watching party this month. I’m going to participate The rally starts at 5 am at the mountain. What at an early morning!
Last Sunday was mother’s day. My daughter’s family and my son’s family came to my home. I got a lot of flowers for mother’s day. It was so beautiful. We chatted each other and I played piano, singing a song with my grandchildren. Song’s title was “ believe”. It's my husband's birthday next month and I decided to play this song for him as a present on his birhtday. but I don't have confidence yet that's the reason why I keep on practicing now on how to play this song.
