a sign....

...that someone up there truly loves me and wants me to be happy!

Thanks Mom...you rawk the leftover Halloween Easter candy.

We've had a really hectic week and I'm we're beginning to feel it.
Tiredness is running rampant among the Kuroiwa's.
So....some pictures..a bit of a "Few Words Friday", if you will.,

Mom exhibiting her mad Anne Geddes' style picture taking.
Ms. Geddes has absolutely nothing to worry about. 
No really. 
She doesn't.

There is a very tall wall on one side of our garden...in the wall, the K-man has stuck
Rose Cactus (Cactus Rose?) in the cracks and they are actually
thriving in those cracks.


Something beautiful, surviving and growing in a really difficult location...
I told Issei,
"That is kind of like Mommy."
He snorted...then agreed.  I ♥ that kid!!

One of my all-time favorite sandwiches is a peanut butter and banana with honey sandwich.
Heaven on a slice of bread....Elvis style.
I have been scoffed at for this many times by the main man in this house.
He has, just as many times, refused to eat this creation.
And that's okay.
To each his (or her) own.

Imagine my surprise when I walked into the kitchen one morning...and there sat the K-man
at the table..
happily munching on this:

It seems that some semi-famous talent (tv entertainer, to you and me) introduced this particular sandwich on a talk show as her favorite thing to eat.
K:  "This is great!  Have you ever had a peanut butter and banana sandwich?"
D:  ........................................

The K-man now has one 2 or 3 mornings a week.
Oh....now I get it....We're only going to believe something if someone on TV says it...otherwise what is being said is...a load of crap....ignorable, even. 
Wow. 
Had I learned this interesting little tidbit of info about 16 years ago, we could have avoided
a lot of pain and heartache. 
I'm going to have to start paying more attention to those talk shows from now on.

At the lighthouse, at the southernmost tip of Nagasaki.


I wish you all a weekend of clear skies, warm breezes, avoidable aggravations and spending time with the
ones you love most!!

I love that blossom that is your son! And I utterly dislike when I tell people stuff and they shrug, then they hear it on tv and they're all OMG! HATE.

Love the part about something beautiful surviving in a difficult situation.

And, hey. What is it with men, not believing this kind of stuff unless they think it is their idea, or, in this case, someone else says it? Don't they know, we are ALWAYS right? Poor things.
