Her Birthday

 Christmas is her birthday also. My wife was busy to make secret sweets for her.
 She was so pleased with them. Good job, honey!
I liked it very much, and ate too much. I mean we enjoyed happy Christmas day too much.

Surprise Flower

always makes women happy. Yoko ONO said the same thing on the TV program, I think. Yes, it seems to be true.

It is interesting that Japanese traditional sweets 'NERIKIRI' meets western Christmas.

This teapot joined our tea set today. It is one of Japanese traditional ironware called 'NANBU TEKKI'. Likely, which has been made in TOHOKU region for about  400 years. About 400 years history! Wish TOHOKU region will revive as soon as possible.

My older daughter made this snowshoe hare using the fruit of MANRYO in the garden. I know I'm a typical fond father though, I like her sensitive artistic sense very much.

They love the piano,

especially the younger daughter is crazy about it very much. Hopefully me too...

Our friend in Boise visited our house!

He and his wife took care of us very much, when we were in Boise about 5years ago. Since he had a business trip to Japan, we could have chance to see him. He was very surprised by our older daughter's rapid growth(she was just 2~3 years old at that time), and pleased to see our younger daughter first time. Thank you for coming, we were very very glad to see you again!

Repairing the wading shoes' sole

 I remembered that my wading shoes' sole was almost broken. The fishing off season is good chance to fix it. Prepare the aquaseal, a cutter, pair of new sole sheet, a tape and the ethanol.
 After the taping, just wait for a while.
Well done!
