It's cold today. Some places in Hokkaido have snow. According to the weather forecast, it will be 3℃~8℃ today in Hakodate though we don't have any snow yet. My apartment building is warm, so I haven't turned on a heater yet.

When I exhibited my Ikebana a few years ago, my friend and her mother came to see it. At that time, her mother was very fine. She had learned Ikebana before, so she enjoyed seeing them then.
As my friend's parents lived near her house, they used to help my friend's family, especially taking care of their grand children.

She, my friend's mother, has a disease and is hospitalised now. My friend has taken care of her parents since then, so she got very busy now. Therefore, we hardly have a chance to go out together these days, but I dared to ask her to go see Ikebana. She was very pleased with my offer and she said to me that some Ikebana pictures would make her mother happy. I got glad to hear that.

She took many pictures of Ikebana. So did I. And then, we also had talking for a few hours at a cafe. I hope her stress released even just a little.

It's cold today. Some places in Hokkaido have snow. According to the weather forecast, it will be 3℃~8℃ today in Hakodate, though we don't have any snow yet. My apartment building is well insulated, so I haven't turned on *a heater yet.

*Ok if you have more than one heater. If you have central heating, then you would specify by saying 'the' heater.

When I exhibited my Ikebana arrangements a few years ago, my friend and her mother came to see them. At that time, her mother was fine. She had learned Ikebana before, so she enjoyed seeing them then.
As my friend's parents lived near her house, they used to help my friend's family, especially by taking care of their grandchildren.

My friend's mother has a disease and is hospitalized now. My friend has been taking care of her parents since then, so she is very busy now. Therefore, we hardly have a chance to go out together these days. However, as I thought she needed to get out for a bit, I asked her to go see an Ikebana exhibition with me. She was very pleased with my offer and said that showing Ikebana pictures to her mother would make her mother very happy. I was glad to hear that.

My friend took many pictures of the flowers at the Ikebana exhibition, as did I. After the exhibition, we talked for a few hours at a cafe. I hope her stress level was lowered by our outing, even if just by a little.


Re: English Corrections

Hi, Shiroi Tora.

Thank you very much for the corrections.
It was difficult for me to choose some pictures to post.
By the way, the news said that we had a little snow here, though I didn't notice that.

I love Ikebana exhibition pictures too. I especially like to watch how they change from season to season.

Re: No title

Hi, Always visiting.

I was glad to hear that. Many arrangements reminded me of autumn.
