We left home at around 16:30 by car and we arrived at my mother-in-law's at around 20:30 last weekend.
The next morning, we dressed in black and went to a ceremony hall to commemorate the second anniversary of my father-in-law's death. Some relatives got together as well as a monk. After the ceremony, we had a feast there.
My mother-in-law seemed to be taken a load off her mind. Because it was the last ceremony for her husband. After that, she will commemorate for him with our family at home.

When we stay with my mother-in-law, my son is looking forward to sleeping in a bed, not a futon which is on a floor directly. And he sleeps in the same room with his grandmother. He enjoys there not only using a bed, but also talking with her as well as watching TV as he sleeps. He loves her very much.

When my son was at a washroom, he found his grandmother's electric toothbrush by chance. He was interested in it, and he asked her to try it. Because it was the first time for him.
I was so surprised to hear this, but I didn't say anything. I was wondering what his grandmother would answer. She said she didn't use it as usual, but she had used several times before. She then washed it in hot water, and handed it to my son. And he tried it.
Wow! How much does he love her ?

On our way home, there was Osyamanbe town along the sea. It is famous for scallops. These white things on the ground were not snow, but scallop shell powder, maybe.

Last weekend, my family went to my mother-in-law's house to commemorate the second anniversary (三回忌) of my father-in-law's death.
We left home at around 16:30 by car and we arrived at my mother-in-law's at around 20:30.

The next morning, we dressed in black and went to a ceremony hall to commemorate the second anniversary of my father-in-law's death. There were other relatives gathered there, and we were led in ceremony by a monk. After the ceremony, we had a feast there.

As it was the last public ceremony for her husband, my mother-in-law seemed to have had a load taken off her mind. She will now commemorate his passing privately, with just close family, at home.

When we stay with my mother-in-law, my son looks forward to sleeping on a bed instead of sleeping on the floor on a futon. He sleeps in the same room with his grandmother. My son enjoys seeing his grandmother not only because he gets to sleep in a bed, but he also enjoys talking with her, as well as watching TV as she sleeps beside him. He loves her very much.

Once, when my son was in the washroom, he found his grandmother's electric toothbrush by chance. As he had never tried one before, he was interested in it, and he asked her if he could try it.

I was so surprised to hear this, but I didn't say anything. I was wondering what his grandmother would say. Although she said she didn't usually use it, she said that she had used it several times before. She washed it in hot water, and handed it to my son. He then tried it.
Wow! How much does he love her ?

On our way home, we passed through a seaside town called Osyamanbe. It is famous for the harvesting and processing of scallops. The white covering on the ground was not snow. I think it was scallop shell powder.





Re: English Corrections

Hi, Shiroi Tora.

Thank you very much for the corrections as always.

I have a question.
As for the fourth paragraph of your recommended corrections, you said 'sleeping ON a bed' at first, but you said 'sleep IN a bed' on the second.
Are the both of them correct?

My Reply:


You are correct. The best way would have been 'on' in both cases.

However...
Okay, this is going to be tricky. Although I should have said 'on' in both (I missed it)...you may say 'in' when referring to a bed when you are talking about the bed as a whole including the covers. As you go under the covers, you are in the pocket of the bed as a whole...so, you are 'in' bed. However, as you were talking about the fact that your son was off the floor as in comparison to the futon, the important factor was the bed. Otherwise the other factors remain the same. I could have used 'in' a bed on both, or used it just as I had with 'on' and 'in', but in this case, as your son was happiest being off of the floor, the fact that he was sleeping on a bed rather than on a futon was the mitigating factor...and so, 'on' would have been the most correct for both. It is the most precise in this case.
