Our first piano recital

My mom, as professional hairdresser, dresses her granddaughter's hair, every time she comes to our house.

Looks nice, thanks mom.

It was her first piano recital today.

She stayed quite unruffled, and played so well!

And it was first experience for me also. Yeah, exactly first time, I'd never touched any keyboards in my life. Just started it this April.

My job was to accompany her on the piano, 'Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star'.

Though I got stage fright much, did my best I think.
These two pix was took by Y-san.

She was happy to have them. Many thanks for Mr. & Mrs. Y-san today!

Exhausted day for me, but found much fun of music again today. Thank you, Mr. & Mrs. M-san and congratulations!!

Let's go there

as our weekly routine, sweetie.

Around 15:50, the days are noticeably shorter.

Common wild duck, but white one was uncommon?


Female MOZU(Bull-headed Shrike) was twittering noisily.

YAMAGARA, Varied Tit, was busy for picking something up.

That was a nut of MOKKOKU(Ternstroemia gymnanthera). 

Shijuugara, Great Tit, always looks nice with his tie.

The end of precious time, see you next week.


We had JICHINSAI,the Shinto ceremony of purifying a building site, today.

It was so nice with beautiful weather. Hope safe and peaceful life there.

These foods as the offering should be taken home and eaten for good luck.

Especially TAI, sea bream, is most famous one of lucky foods.

I steamed it wrapped with much salt. So-oooooo tasty!

Here comes autumn!

OZIKO came into bearing eventually. It is the harvest season just now.

They changed interior decoration to the Halloween's one. It reminded me of the life in US.

About myself, busy for piano practice everyday. Rome was not built in a day, but lots of fun!
