It was very cold today. A piano tuner visited my house. He regularly visits me every year to tune my piano. He is a private piano tuner. He is a conscientious and good person so I have him tune my piano every year( annually.) After my piano has been tuned, I hesitantly went to the river because the snow is fluttering in the wind but I went to the river. My hands were numb and cold but I'm glad to have met a kingfisher. While I was taking pictures , my friend came. We had a good time chatting. Vocabulary annual= happening once a year
I went to my mother's house this morning and I noticed that my car has a strange sound. When I started the engine yesterday, it didn't work. So I brought my car to the car dealer I left my car there.

I brought our cat, Hana to the veterinary clinic because she had difficulty in walking the other day. She is 16 years old. If compared to a human, 16 year old cat is similar to an old woman. Hana is a good cat, gentle, and never gets angry. On our way to the veterinary clinic, Hana cried meow over and over. Hana had undergone X-rays, urine and blood test. The result of Hana's examination was normal. Hana had just an injection to stop the pain. When I arrived home with Hana, she purred and was seemed to be very happy. And she slept in my husband's bed.
