One night of TOUJI; Thank you, my real friends

It was TOUJI, the winter solstice today. In Japan, we usually eat the pumpkin and take a hot citron bath for sound health of family all.
By the way, I had a YAKINIKU party with my fishing friends today also. It was my best party of this year.
To tell the truth, I've been depressed so much recently, because of my serious failure. Actually I lost one of my friends whom I spent same time in Boise, because of it.
They, my fishing friends said, " Lance, you were definitely wrong, but basically it takes two to make a quarrel. You must think it over well, but don't worry yourself about such a trifles".
I was really, really encouraged by their advise. Thank you my real friends, and I would like to be a man whom you guys want.

Our recent events

10/28 She was back

My wife left the hospital and came back our home.
We had small celebration lunch together there. It was fantastic!

10/31 Piano concert

My mam, professional hairdresser, was busy in coiffuring her granddaughter as usual.

We tried a four-handed performance this year. It was not easy for me, but we had wonderful time together.

11/3 She has come our home eventually!

Welcome to your house, sweetie! We all are very happy to be with you. Especially your sister has been waiting for you.

And now, we are having busier but happier everyday life.

My father and daughter went to the park, just in front of our house, for chestnut-gathering today.

Likely she is going to show her mam them first, who will be back from the hospital tomorrow. I hope she can show her young sister them also soon.

Since we visited our friends' and her piano teacher's house today,
went to the SAFARI park near their house after piano lesson.

It was so close to SUYAMA region! It took only 5min from there.

It was our last small day trip before a new member will join us.

After long interval, we were there in KADOIKE park. The pond had lower water because of the shore protection works.

And ISOSHIGI, Common Sandpiper, was our new bird to see today.

KOSAGI, Little Egret was just landing.

Her bike skill got much better, and she is good at going down the steps now.

DAISAGI, Great Egret was likely busy for catching the fish.
Have a good fishing time, there.

TORATSUGUMI, Scaly Thrush was first to see.
It jumped to the brunch from the ground, surprised by my appearance. Sorry.
