I found it these days (yesterday I hard it was open in this May.), because it was near my favorite sweets shop.
But the outside is curious. I thought the owner must be an young man.
So I was hesitated to go there with someone or alone.
(Usually my women friens like stylish, quiet and conservative restaurants.)
And I went there with my husband.
What the owner was like? Can you guess?
The owner was a woman who has 2 grandchildren.
She loves growing vegetables, and cooking, and the most happiest thing is to serve meals she cooks using her vegetables. But unfortuntely her children and grand children seem not so happy, they take it as a usual thing. So she decided to open her restaurant.
The meals are usual home cooking. BUT she grows and cooks verious vegetables. Now it is a season in potatoes. She grows 4 kinds of potatoes. (sorry I forgot the names). Every potatoes has different taste and yummy.
I' was really impressed. And she was also impressed with my comments, and we talked very much. She served other things that were not on the menu. She served FUKI miso, RAKKYO, etc.
Do you remember? I also made some of them.
These days my husband also begins to show intereset plants that we can eat, so he joined us.
The main manu is the same for one month, so we'll promise her to come next month.
Now the restaurant is not so crowded, but probably in this year it must be famous, though I wish it were not so popular.
Anyway we found a good restaunt where my husband and I easy to go.

And the cucumbers; I pickled them with SHOUCYU(kind of SAKE) , sugar, and salt. (I don't use vinegar).
And the strawberry jam; this morning I baked pastry with the jam and rubarbs. Some of them were our breakfast, and the others are going to served for today's adult students.

Yesterday , a woman came to my house, though it was just one-hour stay.
Did I tell you?
My friends (including my husband ) and I are going to hold a concert at the tea room KARAKU in August. ( The memberas are called or called themselves almost last in our 40's .)
And now I go to TOKYO twice a month to take English pronoune lessons.
As you know I've studying English for many years, and what is my goal?Probably I don't have a goal. But these days I'm rearlly intereseted in reading picturebooks in English to others. Now I have a job to teach English. But when I'm in my 60's, what can I do? what makes me intereseted? I thought if I were AUNT-MIEKO who loves to read picture books to others.
So I started to take pronouce lessons in TOKYO. I'm not sure, I will be able to continue, because of my health condition and budget. Anyway I go as much as I can.
And the teacher comes to my house yesterday.
She is going to join the concert as a reader. a kind of a staff meeting.
We arranged music, books, and other thing for the concert. And my husband joined us, of coure he is going to play the bass at the concert.
It was the first time for him to read picturebooks to him in English.
He understood, what I wanted to do.
Though he doesn't deny what I do, he often says "is it enough to study Enligh?"
He worries my health condition, and buddget.
But after the meeting, he said.
Hang in there, we have little chance to inveset mony in ourselves.
He encouraged me.
And he also said
I also put "some"money in myself to participate in senior golf tournamnet when I'm in my 60's.
Well---- the biggest thing that makes me worried is ---- money.(big sigh)
I found a caterpillar in the garden.
suddenly yesterday my younger daughter came to my house , she said "I dond't nothing, I want to do without anything."
According to her, on weenends she is always busy to do house chores. It's OK to do nothing in my house. But next ween she is also coming back to celebrate Father's day. And lastend week she went out with us. When she (and her sister) does house chores (especailly wasing clothes and cleaning a room.)?
Anyway she stayed untill evening, so I baked chiffon cake, and she took most of them as today's breakfast.
