I brought my mother and her friend, to Yuki hot spring yesterday. We spent our night at the hotel and we arrived home just today. It was a clear sky yesterday. (Yesterday, the sky was clear.) The Yuki hot spring was just newly built last month. The mists was overlying the river and the mountains this morning. Checkout time was 10am. My mother said “I want to go somewhere. Please bring me anywhere.” Her friend said “ your mother is selfish isn’t it?” And she laughed. So, I brought her to another place. I was tired but my mother appeared to be happy and so I was also happy. ..Vocabulary...... overlying = lie on top of appear = look like
It was cold weather today. I went to the music school to have my piano lesson at 2pm. (It was a one-on-one lesson.) After the lesson, I went shopping. The selling of lottery ticket was announced when I was looking for some clothes. Though I didn't have intention to buy the lottery ticket, I was inveigle to buy it. When I came home, I played the piano. It was Christmas song. It was like a Christmas concert when my grandchildren sang in my home while I played the piano. When my daughter was still a child, my daughter and I played the piano together. It was the good old days.
I was planning to go to Miyajima with my husband today. But I was not able to go there because my husband went to school. He left the document and needs to submit it tomorrow. So, I went to the river instead. It was a fine day like a spring. Fall’s fine day is also called Indian summer After hanging out at the river for 3 hours I went back home and I cooked lunch for my husband. After that, I went to the shrine which is located near my house Then, I saw a ginkgo tree with yellow leaves
It was pretty cold today. I heard the mountain was covered with snow.
I had a piano lesson. I practiced Christmas songs. I was glad that spot light from ceiling recently. It was the atmosphere of Christmas.
And then I went to R center. There was my friends exhibition. There were nice pictures. I went back on my way to the river. I saw a kingfisher but it was a little dark. He fly faster on the river in front of me. I was happy.
I heard from the TV news, that there was a .... who blew up causing an accident recently. The news said that a kid got hurt. My house's fire extinguisher is very old. I am worried about it ( I worry about it.) There was a fire drill at the elementary school this morning.(Miri elementary school) I heard about the incident and took the fire extinguisher back to the school. But there was a charge for taking it back I went there to hand over the fire extinguisher. There were lots of people who brought fire extinguisher. There were 3～4 fire engines. I noticed I forgot to bring money. Oh I am so stupid! I gathered some in my car. I had barely enough money for it.
And then I went to the river to take picture of kingfisher. But I forgot my cellular phone too. My husband called me up many times. When I came back home, my husband got angry.
It is pretty cold since yesterday. It is a snowy mountain area.
There is a shrine near my house. And today was the shrine’s festival. Omikoshi went out to our area. An Omikoshi is a portable shrine. It is carried along the streets of the town.
