over the past few days~~~

the weather has turned absolutely beautiful.  i used to say that the spring was what i enjoyed the most, but, i'm thinking that i was wrong.  fall is quickly moving into the top position.
the cool, dry air.
the flowers.
(which have caused some incredible sneezing fits, but...
c'est la vie)
weekend fashion for us:
light sweatshirt or long sleeved shirt
shorts
sandals.
it works.

a haiku, by me, for the morning:

The fresh morning air
Crisply, it greets my senses
Fall....cleans the morning.


***********
in a bucket by our front door, as you are leaving or coming home, you are greeted by these 
teeny bits of loveliness!!!
they are seriously....
tiny.
we all kind of smile when we see them....
even the lady who delivers the mail made a comment about them.
that's really nice.
***********
ever have a hankering for something
sweet?
cold?
something ice cream-y....
hmmmm.
ice cream sandwich?
ice cream bar?
which?
how about both?
total yummyliciousness!!
we may have to buy stock in Lotte to help pay for our new addiction.

*************

there is so much english written on signs around us here in japan..
it's many times humorous.
often confusing.
more often than not....it's just plain wrong.
imagine my surprise the other day, when i saw a sign for a new hair salon
in a shopping arcade i like to go to....
it's correct....
and....
it is correct.
so. very. correct.

**************
this morning,
i took out a load of laundry to hang and was greeted by this...
i'm thinking that koji had some free time
and was feeling creative yesterday.
either way.....it made me smile.


may you find something in your day that makes
you smile.

Koji is a sculptor!

I like fall too. And ice cream. And the words on the sign. But not laundry.
