The Simple Woman's Daybook

For today: Augutst 11, 2011

Outside my window...It is still hot and humid. Around 9:00 p.m. 86 degrees F (30 degrees C). 86%. No wind is blowing.

I am thinking...five months have passed since the Great Earthquake hit Easten Japan. Even today there are countless amount of debris still remain. Many people are still suffering.

I am my friends and my family, espeically my husband who is the number one supporter of mine.

In the kitchen...there are some more things for me to do. Preparion for tomorrow.

I am wearing...a brown Tshirt and a gingham half pants.

I am creating...a blog that started one month ago.

I am play tennis tomorrow under the scorching sun. I have to prevent heat stroke.

I am to go with this summer heat.

I am reading...a Japanese historical novel of Toyotomi Hideyoshi, who united Japan in the late 16th century.

I am hoping...that my three-month-old grandson will grow up healthy and my eleven-year-old beagle will live long.

I am looking forward to...get a job offer as an English tour guide. After the March Earthquake and its following Fukushima nuclear power plant issue, tourism industry has been greatly affected though I live in Osaka, 1000 km away from the area.

I am hearing...the buzzing sound of electric fan. I also hear the sound of cars heading for their homes.

One of my favorite things...walking with my dog Annie in the morning. Although she is sick and old, she likes going out with me. She walks soooo slowly and stops soooo many times.

A few plans for the rest of the week:playing tennis on Friday, going to outdoor jazz concert on Saturday. I will be busy this week.

Here is picture for thought I am sharing...My first grandson Rintaro. He is so cute and lovely.

I've never imagined how happy I am with a grandkid.

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to check out some other Daybook entries here!


  1. I've read your Daybook lying on my futon with electric fans on. After turning on the airconditioner which was turned off by its timer, I'll go to sleep.
    This is my simple posting on today's blog.

  2. When you left your link you used the general one for your blog. It should have been the specific one for this post. If you don't know how to do it click on my name and follow until you get my email address. I too use Blogger and would ve glad to help.

  3. Grandchildren are such a delight! We have four.

    Were you affected by the earthquake?
