A few days ago, I had agreed to "put myself out there" once again, along with quite a few of Mrs. G's peeps....this time the "assignment" was to give our readers a look into what an average day is like where we are.
Hmmmm...well....see...okay...this is how it is....ahmmmmm....could I have a day or two more to work on this??? Pleeeeeeeease?!
See...today was a holiday here in Japan...taiku no hi ("Sports Day") and the K-man, the boys, my mother-in-law and I spent the day in the car, driving to her sister's house, getting rice, letting turtles go, eating seasonal foods, looking at cosmos, buying some awesome bread, climbing a small mountain to see some almost 1200-year-old Buddha carvings, going to an onsen ("hot spring bath"), seeing more cosmos, checking on the turtles to make sure they were doing okay, back to Aunt Yoko's house, having tastes of the awesome bread, loading up the car, then driving back home again, taking Grandma to her house, going to the grocery store to buy ham and cheese for the incredible sandwiches we made with that awesome bread we bought earlier, looking at the pictures we took today and then....it was time for bed....and here we are.
It is almost midnight and I have yet to plan what I am going to do tomorrow for my classes (I have 3!!) I need to have at least a little something prepared!! My students expect that!
Please forgive me....I'll post about a regular day in the life of moi soon....Okay? okay.
But...until then....let me just post some quick pictures.....I hate to have people stop by and then have to leave without really getting anything....
The following pictures are in total random order because that's just how we do things sometimes here at Kamp Kuroiwa....the sooner you accept this concept, my good friends, the better we will all get along.....
Taking a break at the bread shopIt's rice harvest time and in this field, after being cut, the rice has been bundled up and stacked...for drying. I do love the cosmos!!MMMMM....man, we do make a good samich...with dill pickles on the side!!
Soon....my lovely futon...soon......
Our lovely offspring...one happy and the one mad he got the seat in the sun. Life sucks sometimes...really it does...at least until we go in another direction!
"Come on already...quit your yapping and get in the car. Daylight's burning."
