|Summer festival was loads of fun... at least, 'til the thunder started...|
Boy-- have I thrown out a bunch of stuff. Had no idea that much unnecessary stuff was hunkered down in my kitchen.
I must, however, ask your patience for a few more days. We're changing providers, so as of tomorrow I will be in the Inky Void Of OfflineLand... until sometime next week when we get a new router.
Goodness-- I have so much to tell you all... if I can remember everything. We've had summer festivals...
|Mr. Big Turtle... but Papa put his foot down, and we were Sad|
...and quite an assortment of critters in the house...
|Chuo Alps-- the Central Alps of Japan|
I have a zillion pictures--and you guys want to see all of them, right?
|Teddy's Cardigan...awaiting zipper|
I'll just leave you with a Spyshopper photo I took the other day--
the Matsutake are in the stores! Note, please, that there are a whole two mushrooms, delicately arranged in that package. Care to guess how much?
|Itadakima---su! Or.... maybe not.|
Since the dollar is so weak right now, a ten-dollar bill would not be enough for you to take those mushrooms home for dinner...
Sometimes I just walk through the store just shaking my head.
Ittekima--su! Be back soon! Promise!
Mata asobou, ne!
p.s.-- I forgot to put this picture in. We are living amid mountains of boxes...
...two more days...
