Japanese anemone (秋明菊)

I've lost weight since I moved here.
I usually do radio exercises twice a day, for twenty minutes in total, and I often walk instead of driving. Moreover, I've eaten less sweets than before.

Actually, it takes four minutes on foot from my apartment to my parking lot. It's really inconvenient. However, if I walk ten minutes or more, I can go almost anywhere, such as a convenience store, a drug store, a station, a bank, a post office, and a grocery store.
I don't want to carry heavy things, so, I hardly buy extra things.




The Writers' Workshop 9月号問題文 「スヌーピー」の解説

What or who is Snoopy?
I sometimes wonder about it.
‘A dog.’ is not a right answer. It’s enigmatic to categorize Snoopy.
(An omission)
Snoopy is not personified. He is surely a dog owned by Charlie Brown. However, he ponders, criticizes, reflects, and philosophizes. Snoopy is a friend who is independent, a critic who always complains, and sometimes a hermit who has a philosophical thought, rather than a pet dog.
Snoopy has an older brother named Spike although this character doesn’t appear in this episode. He somehow lives in the desert alone. There, he is always meditating, and he sometimes talks with cacti. He is absolutely a philosopher living in the desert.

車の窓に挟まれた!

Dry curry bento.



My husband doesn't like using air-conditioning because he says he gets a runny nose.
The apartment I had lived in Hakodate didn't have air-cinditioning, but the present apartment I live in has one.
He usually isn't at home in daytime, and my place is not so hot at night. So, it's Okay. I often used it when he was out though. It's been getting cool here recently.

Last weekend, my husband and I went shopping by car. While driving, the car windows were open, of course. I sat in the back seat behind him and opened the window half at first, I then opened it a little becuase my hair became mess by the strong wind.

When we arrived at a supermarket, and I was going to get off the car, I unintentionally put my fingers on the opened window's edge of the top. Then, suddenly "Ouch! Ouch!" I screamed! My husband closed the window from the driver's seat. "Open the window!"I screamed again.

He opened the window, and said, "What are you doing!". And I said, "What are YOU doing!!!"
He insisted "No one puts own fingers on the window when getting off the car."
He wouldn't apologize.
My fingers were swollen and got numb, but they are Okay now. I was relieved that my fingers weren't cut off.

Yuni Garden

I visited Yuni Garden. It took about one hour from my place by car.
It was cloudy and cool there. However, I enjoyed seeing beautiful gardens so much.

↑This is one of the gardens.

Compared with Tomita Farm which is famous for lavender, Yuni Garden didn't have a strong impact full of flowers, but I thought that it has more kinds of flowers. I enjoyed seeing some vegetables as well as a lot of flowers in a large property. It was not crowded, so I could relax to see them. You can ride a bus which goes around if you pay 100 yen.

I've just posted many photos, but there were more flowers and vegetables there.
After walking, I bought some honey. I was surprised that it was inexpensive. I also bought a tiny frog made of glass (left one).

Tarator, Pumpkin salad, and Somen noodles.

I've never been to Bulgaria, but I watched it on TV. Tarator (Cold yogurt soup with cucumber) interested me, so, I made it adding tomato, tuna, and parsley . I put somen noodles in it. I also made pumpkin salad with celery. I thought pumpkin and celery went well. However, I bet my husband and son don't like somen noodles with Tarator. They don't like unfamiliar food.



The Writers' Workshop 8月号問題文 「スヌーピー」の解説

‘PEANUTS’ tells a story about children’s trivial daily life humorously. Charles M. Schulz and his first wife, Joyce, had five children. It is said that those children’s lovely and mysterious words gave stimuli to his writing. However, some of ‘words’ which occasionally appeared on the paper were massages from him. The reason why his works have gained popularity for a half century through the paper media is the very attraction of his words, isn’t it?
The renowned episode of single-minded love between Charlie Brown and ‘a little girl with red hair’ is retold of his own experience. Charlie Brown who fell in love a lot in contrast to his appearance, wondered seriously whether or not he could love two girls at the same time. There, you could read thoughts of Schulz who had experienced two marriages. Linus with his ‘security blanket’ sent the readers many philosophical words. (omission)
When Charlie Brown looked at the sunset, somehow it made him sad. Snoopy sitting next to him said ‘the last cookie’ as the sad feeling. Snoopy’s words sounded like jokes, but the best friends seemed to share their feelings each other.

an altered handkerchief

IMG_3151_convert_20190805225918.jpg

A few years ago, a friend of mine gave me a kind of handkerchief which is right on this picture. I was very glad to get it because I like frogs. She hadn't known that I like frogs at that time.
Moreover, it's useful because I can wipe my hands as just a handkerchief, and I can put a cold plastic bottle in it to avoid wetting things in my bag, and also, when I go to bed, I put an ice pack in it and I put it under my neck.

I felt like wanting more this tipe of handkerchief, so, I stitched around together like this (left). It became more useful than just a square handkerchiel before.
