New Year's Ikebana 12/20/2017

IMG_1992_convert_20171227094748.jpg

I had composed this arrangement of Pinus Parviflora (五葉松), Sarcandra Glabra (千両), Chrysanthemum (菊), and Uplight (アップライト) for New Year's Day.

Pinus Parviflora is pretty. I don't know exactly, but Uplight is a kind of asparagus. They were painted with gold.


Christmas was over. I'm not a Christian, but I had been quite busy preparing for it. I bought some presents, made a board game, made more than one hundred cookies and some Panettone.
I don't go to a department store so often, but I like shopping there. I bought a warm pair of socks for myself as well. I had bought a scarf for myself last year. I buy one which I want for a Christmas present for myself.

I then wrote some New Year's cards last Sunday.

Now, the only thing that I have to do is cleaning. There are many things to clean in my house.

My car came back from repairing yesterday. The old neighbor who had hit my car gave up driving at last. He is two years younger than my father. Because he reminds me of my father, I sympathize with him. I think that it's a good time to quit driving for him as my fahter.

Re: English Corrections

Hello, Shiroi Tora.

Thank you very much for the corrections.
I have a question though I might have asked it before.

Please tell me about what the difference is between 'Christmas was over' and 'Christmas is over'.

Sakae's Question

Sakae's Question:

Please tell me about what the difference is between 'Christmas was over' and 'Christmas is over'.


My Reply:

By starting a statement with a past tense, it implies that it is now not over. By saying it in the present tense, it not only states the correct
chronology, it sets up the following sentence.

A better first sentence would have been, 'Finally, Christmas is over'.
This would have denoted the exasperation the second sentence implied.
