  • Boys, be ambitious !
  • My family visited Hitsujigaoka Observation Hill (羊ヶ丘展望台) in Sapporo.There is the famous statue of Clark who was the president of the Sapporo Agricultural College (now Hokkaido University) in 1876.Almost all people made the same pose as the statue to be taken for a picture by turns. We didn't take a picture of us though.There were some sheep. They were always busy eating grass. You can see t [続きを読む]
  • online English lesson 8/11/2017
  • The other day, I bought some fresh coriander (パクチー) , and made some green salad including them. My son hates the fresh coriander, so I made the leftover into some soup. Even though, he didn't like it.The fresh coriander had their little roots, so, I planted them in my small planter. As you may know, I have taken an online lesson every day for a few years. Today, I've just achieved 20,000 minut [続きを読む]
  • Kanimeshi
  • (I had posted this article on August 5th originally.)A few days later when I had posted last article on my blog, the friend who ha
    d traveled Kamakura with me called me after a long time. She hadn't known about my blog, so, I was surprised at the coinciden
    ce. I was very happy to talk with her. She talked fast as used to be. We have exchanged New Year's cards yearly, but we haven
    't talked for ages. [続きを読む]

  • Ikebana 7/26/2017
  • I had composed this arrangement of Oldham Blueberry (ナツハゼ), Gentian (リンドウ), and Physalis Angulata (センナリホオズキ).A flower shop clerk said that the Physalis Angulata was rare, so, my teacher and I took some photos of them.Hydrangeas are in full bloom here now. I want to see ones in Kamakura again someday. It is called Ajisai Dera (hydrangea temple). I been there with a friend of mine w [続きを読む]
  • Fireworks
  • A professor arranged these works at the last Ikebana Sunday Workshop.I went to see some fireworks last night. I saw them from a li
    ttle far away. I was standing at the seashore to see them. I couldn't hear the sound of wireworks. Instead of that, only what
    I heard was sploosh, the sound of the sea whose water beat the beach. In the air was full of sea aroma. It reminded me of my home
    town. I felt no [続きを読む]
  • at an English class
  • Adele / Rolling In The DeepWhen I attended an English conversational class recently, I was surprised to hear one thing.An American
    teacher said that "There is no bathrooms".I had thought that "There are no bathrooms". I asked him about it.H
    e taught me that the both are correct.When the subject is the situation of no bathrooms, you could say that there is no bathrooms.
    When the subject is bathrooms, [続きを読む]
  • Ikebana 7/5/2017 / 勘違い
  • I had composed this arrangement of Agapanthus (アガパンサス), Ochroleuca (オクロレウカ), Spray Roses (スプレーバラ), and Leatherleaf Fern (レザーファン).Now, the temperature in my room is 28℃. Many of the spray roses in this arrangement have been dying. I'm going to take out an electric fan from the storage this weekend.MisunderstandYesterday, my father called me and said "Mom (my mother) went t [続きを読む]
  • cheese
  • To be honest, I'm not a fan of cheese very much. When I was shopping at a supermarket, I found that some kinds of luxury (for
    me) cheese were sold at half price because of short expiration dates. My family members love cheese, so I bought two kinds of che
    ese. One was Gorgonzola Dolce, and the other was Caprice des Dieux. I usually buy inexpensive cheese though.When it was a long tim
    e ago, I tried [続きを読む]

  • I arranged these flowers which had been picked up from my teacher's garden. When I got to her house, she had already prepared
    various flowers and leaves from her garden. I chose among them to arrange.I'm not sure about some names of the flowers. ( L

    hen he got to Hakodate, he felt cold.↑Dogwoods (ハナミズキ) are now in full bloom here.I took some English tests recently.

  • Ikebana 6/8/2017
  • I had composed this arrangement of Iris (ハナショウブ) and Peony (シャクヤク).Arranging Iris is one of the most difficult arranging in our school. There are so many rules for its leaves, the length, the directions, flower heads, and so on. However, as for this arrangement, it was easier than its strict traditional way. The other day, I made some pickled scallions. I washed fresh scallions to remov [続きを読む]
  • exercise and mixed juice
  • The other day, I made plum (Ume) sour and syrup (recipe).I have exercised for thirty minutes, four times a week, and I have drunk
    mixed vegetable juice everyday, for two weeks. I went to a doctor to check my cholesterol level yesterday.The result was still bey
    ond the normal level, but it got down very much.I was relieved. I will continue doing them.P.S.You can see the corrections of this

I usually learn daily news with online lessons.The other day, I bought a workbook for TOEIC test. It looks good because it is different from other workbooks.

  • I had composed this arrangement of Sunflower (ヒマワリ), Carnation (スプレーカーネーション), Solidago (ソリダコ), and Leatherleaf Fern (レザーファン).This style is called The One-Row Form (multisided). You can also enjoy seeing it from the opposite side.By the way, I recently found a cook-ahead recipe of bread.You don't need a bread machine, but it's easier to make. I made dough by hand at first, [続きを読む]

  • Mother's Day
  • I took these photos at Oniushi Park in Mori Town. Some cherry trees were in bloom still then.As I had known that my son wouldn&apo
    s;t do anything for me on Mother's Day as usual, I asked him to make dinner instead of me because of the Mother's Day. A
    ctually, I wanted to teach how to set up a rice cooker. He can use a knife, but I realized that he had few opportunities to make r
    ice using a rice cooker.H [続きを読む]
  • a nuisance
  • The latest nuisance for me is sodium hydroxide.I bought it at a drugstore a long time ago to make some olive oil soap. I used to m
    ake it by myself, but recently I haven't made it at all. I didn't think that I would make it again in the future, so, I
    decided to throw away tools which are the sodium hydroxide, the pot, the ladle, and so on. I then I threw away everything except t
    he sodium hydroxide. [続きを読む]
  • The Golden Week holidays 2017
  • I didn't travel so far away during the Golden Week holidays. ↑I went to Goryokaku Park (五稜郭公園) to see cherry blossoms. I took some photos from the opposite side of the usual one.↑Although Goryokaku (五稜郭) is famous in Hakodate, there is also Shiryokaku (四稜郭) in Hakodate. I went there for the first time. There were few people there.↑Shiryokaku (四稜郭) I saw some cherry blossoms there. [続きを読む]
  • book / HOLES
  • ↑Mt. HakodateAfter four sessions of putting the mini tomatoes in the oven at 150℃ in total, dried tomatoes have done. I put them in a bag and in a freezer. The taste became dense.When I made spaghetti for today's lunch, I added some of the dried tomatoes, some salted squid guts (Ika no Shiokara), basil sauce, and so on. I've finished reading a book 'HOLES'. As I had mentioned before, I bought th [続きを読む]
  • Cherry trees in Goryokaku Park on April 25.
  • Cherry trees in Goryokaku Park have yet to be in full bloom. I've been looking forward to seeing them. They will be in full b
    loom in a week or so.I like stew very much. After I made soup stock from leftover of shrimp heads, I put diced tomato (canned), be
    ans, potato, carrot, onion, mushroom, celery, parsley, broccoli, bacon, and so on. I made a cake. It was very easy to make and I u

  • Ikebana 4/19/2017
  • I had composed this arrangement of Allium (丹頂アリアム), Gerbera (ガーベラ), and Polyscias (ポリシャス).I arranged them with a free style, which is difficult for me. At first, I prepared three containers. I wanted to arrange three alliums from three directions, but it was very difficult for me to arrange the third allium. I tried it again and again, but I ended up giving up third container.Allium [続きを読む]
  • to make my room
  • I joined an Ikebana Sunday Workshop last Sunday. These works were arranged by a professor.Since I have been exhausted to be involv
    ed with my son, I decided to have my own room. We don't have many rooms, but there is a storage room which has so many cardbo
    ard boxes including for appliances' ones. I have thrown away many things recently in that room, and I want to have a table th

  • Ikebana 4/5/2017
  • I had composed this arrangement of Viburnum furcatum (虫狩/ムシカリ), Lily (ユリ), and Gold dust dracaena (ゴッドセフ
    ィアナ).It is said that insects like Viburnum furcatum's leaves. This branches always grow bifurcated, so, my teacher reco
    mmended that it was good to show its feature.There is no snow any more here, and the temperature is around 10℃. The other day, I
    went back to my hometown by pla [続きを読む]
  • Aleppo Soap
  • I've heard Aleppo Soap from a newspaper or a TV program recently, and I knew how it was very hard to produce the soap in Alep
    po, Syria. I'm not sure whether the workers still work there, or some workers fled from the battlefield, and they produce the
    soap in an adjacent region.I felt like supporting the workers even though it is a very little thing. When I was younger, I often
    would make olive oil [続きを読む]
