Hello! I'm back to blogging. How was your October?
In my part of the world, normal October temperature returned in mid-October
after the two weeks of unseasonably hot weather.
One of the joys of October is flowering cosmos. Some places featuring cosmos flowers are really spectacular but you don't have to go to any special places to enjoy them because they are around you at many places throughout Japan.
My mother could undergo the surgery on her fractured right arm despite her frail condition. The surgery was successful and she got able to use her right arm and hand again though not so free and powerful as before.
My granddaughter (2 years and 10 months) had her Shichi-go-san celebrated.
She has a sunny personality and is the mixture of little lady and tomboy.
|Acting like a lady in Kimono must have made her feel thirsty.|
When I was at home in Nara, my daughter and her baby boy stopped by on their daily walk.
It must feel so nice for him to look up, sitting on the reclining seat of buggy wheeled by Mom.
I was amazed with his growth each time and was very responsive to his babbling including squeals and gurgles.
I smiled to see him playing while lying on his tummy or taking off his socks.
My October days passed that way revolving around my family
with some anxieties, prayers, thankfulness, and lots of smiles.
