an amazing 75 year-old woman

IMG_9604_convert_20160403134819.jpg

I went back to my hometown.
Actually, I was shocked to see my father aging rapidly.
He is 84 years old. His hearing as well as his memory got worse than the last time I saw him. He used to be a hardworker even after he had retired. However, he was often sleeping in the Kotatsu heater. He seemed to have no motivation.
I felt sad to see him.
My mother seemed to realized that she can't rely on her husband same as before. She got worked harder instead of him. She never complained about it to me, and she was always smile.

My parents moved to the present place last June, but they have to be in charge of neighbor leader in their community from this month for one year. Every household has to do it by turns. Neighbors were worried about it because my parents are newcomers, but my parents thought that sooner was better, so they accepted it.
I recommended my parents that they should go to the meetings together and take notes.

Since my aunts are also old, I saw them as many as possible.

On the other hand, my friend's mother who is around 75 years old is amazing.
She is very good at cooking and she started running her own restaurant last December.
When I went back to my hometown to attend the reunion party last September, I had her delicious food and posted it on my blog.
I went her new restaurant for the first time to eat her delicious food again.
Her restaurant was cozy and it was popular with neighbors.

The menu was Yakisoba Set, Okonomiyaki Set, and Daily Lunch. Her restaurant opens only around lunch time.
We all chose the Daily Lunch.

The Daily Lunch was Miso Soup, Simmered Food, pickles, two Cream Croquettes, Deep Fried Horse mackerel, rice with squid and greenpeas, Field mustard and Angelica keiskei with walnut (菜の花とアシタバのクルミあえ), and green tea.
After the meal, she served us coffee and sweets exceptionally.

I saw Mt. Chokai (鳥海山) which sits between Yamagata Pref. and Akita Pref. from the plane on the way home.

I recently went back to my hometown.
Actually, I was shocked to see my father aging rapidly.
He is 84 years old. His hearing, as well as his memory, had worsened since the last time I had seen him. He used to be a hard worker, even after he had retired. However, when I last saw him, he was often sleeping under the Kotatsu. He seemed to have no motivation.
I felt sad to see him that way.
My mother seemed to realized that she couldn't rely on her husband the same as before. She had to work harder because of his lassitude. She never complained about it to me though, and she always put on a smile.

My parents moved to their present place last June, but they have to be in charge as a neighbor leader in their community starting this month, for one year. Every household has to do it by turns. Their neighbors were worried about it because my parents are newcomers, but my parents thought that doing it early on was better, so they accepted the position.
I recommended to my parents that they should go to the meetings together, and to take notes.

Since my aunts are also old, I saw them as much as possible.

Re: English Corrections

Hello, Shiroi Tora.

Thank you very much for the corrections.

'lassitude' was the first time for me.

I wanted to say, 'I saw as many aunts as possible.'

I wanted to say, coffee and sweets don't include the lunch menu.
