Simple Woman's Daybook

FOR TODAY February 29, 2012   The end of February, too quick.

Outside my is dark, quiet and still cold. But during daytime I was feeling a little progress to spring by milder sunlight.

I am my friends to help me, talk with, laugh with and experience many things with.

In the kitchen...some oranges and bananas on the table.

I am wearing...a reddish sweater and jeans.

I am arranging...a new tour of Kyoto for a private tour published on the Internet site, Tours by locals.

I am take a bath. To soak in the bathtub is  a good way to heal myself.

I am reading ... "Ki ni Manabe" or " Learn from the trees" by Tsunekazu Nishioka. He was a carpenter specializing in traditional wooden Japanese temples.  It is amazing that ancient carpenters built a five-story pagoda without using nails 1300 years ago. They were super clever.

I am hoping that the cold lets up soon. But today Tokyo is affected by snow.

I am looking forward the blooming of ume apricot. They've just started blooming.

I am pondering...that almost one year has passed since the  March Earthquake happened on March 11. There still remain a countless amount of debris on the affected areas. How much has the restoration progressed?

One of my favorite playing jigsaw puzzle on the Internet.

A few plans for the rest of the week...Thursday, visiting the local event featuring Hina dolls. Friday is tennis, Sunday is joining another one day tour. Exciting!

Here is a picture I am sharing... I found this ume blossom this morning.

This is part of the Simple Woman's Daybook. Please enjoy other daybooks here.
