My class started late this morning and I had some extra time to do
blogging and surfing some really important stuff on the computer and I found a little extra "sunshine" in my little corner of the house! I got this "birthday" hibiscus plant from two of my most favorite students, Masami and Tomoko...in a couple of days, I might have 4 or 5 more flowers!! Love the color!!!
So, tomorrow, gas prices will go back up again...about 25 yen...lines at the gasoline stands were a) something I don't remember ever seeing here in Japan and b) about 25 cars long at one place. I filled up the car earlier in the day...no lines...but...at the station that I usually go to (which by the way, is "full service"...remember those?!??!) Wednesday is "Ladies' Day" and for those women who fill up their cars and pay cash, you get.......a loaf of bread....from England....the it's also "100% Bread" (must get the K-man to translate what that squiggle means in the middle).....and yes, there are only 5 slices. Bread usually comes in 5 or 6 slices...8 slices in a loaf are hard to find. To me, the bread here is waaaay too much like Texas Toast....made with Wonder Bread!!! mmmmmmmmmmm!!
More color from our garden....these are starting to bloom...I think we might have
Good-bye sox....HellLLLlooooOOo Sandals!!!
Just something that makes me giggle!!
And finally....a hug...for you all. Whether you need it or not, take it...it's yours. I'm a hugger and in this "anti-hugging" society, sometimes it really gets to me...thank goodness there are "hidden huggers" here that I have become friends with. They have saved me!!
