Larughter Yoga

This poster is designed by my daughter. It gets a good reputation.

Though I constantly hold my laughter yoga-club at home once a month, I've never participated another laughter yoga-club.

Coincidently I got information about another laughter yoga-club in this city. The place was not so far. So I too part in it.

It was really fun.
There were two members, so the size is the same of mine.

And ---

I laughed at myself. Because how different the atmosphere leaded by a different laughter yoga-leader.

While I was surprised at them, I was so welcomed --- because I gave a quite different atmosphere to them.

We promised to join two clubs at least once in a year.

Anyway I continue to hold my laughter yoga club. and I need a little bit more attendee.
So I'll post the brochure in each post of my neighbors again --- it is one of my tasks during the summer vacation.

a book "for rewarding the second life"

 
Finally this book came.
I knew the book on the newspaper in the late of June.
This is issued from "National Federation of Workers and Consumers Insurance Cooperatives",
It is a company, but it seems to be a NPO.
 
The title is "for rewarding the second life".
We can get it for free.
 
The contents are to introduce many steps to enter our second life after retirement.
Yuki declares retirement from his business life when he gets 60 so far.
Though I want to work more, it depends on him.
 
Anyway our financial situation will be completely different. So to make a soft landing, we need --- what???
 
It is written in this book.
First, anyway it is necessary to get to know more about our current financial situation.
And we should start to cut our expending of --- what???
 
This book seems to be very popular.
I had to wait it for more than one month.
 
Well, well, to tell the truth, I'm satisfied with having this book.
"We "(means including Yuki) should start with a first step.
 
Anyway today I'll go to Karaku to play the piano.

Local hot spring

Usual Monday has started. In four days our summer vacation or you can say "grandma & grandpa 's busy work" will have started.
Anyway very humid days have been continued.
Last Saturday we went out to this local hot spring.
 
 
This place is run by KIDUREKAWA town, so it costs 300 yen. And it is "MOTO YU", it means the origin of hot spring of this area. so it is very "salty".
There are many kinds of hot spring. Most  KIDUREKAWA hot spring is salty hot spring.
 
On the way home we dropped by a local farmer market and bought big bread .
The bread is made by local flower.


 
Yes, Monday has started.

Picking blueberries

While Ah-chan was here, the weather was not so good even though rainy season was finished.
I was going to take her and her mother to the city pool, so my due was going to be a just driver (or you can say chauffeur ). While they were out, I were going to take a nap.
However it was too cool for them to swim.
 
So I have to take here and there.
It was difficult to stay home all the day  for---- "my daughter".
Of course for my daughter going shopping was must-do.
 
Well, well, anyway I made a plan. I took them to a blueberry orchard nearby.
 
 
Children under three years old can enter the orchard for free. And of course they can pick blueberry and eat blueberry. Additionally we pay for the blueberries which are picked.


 
My daughter and she entered the orchard. The adult entering fee is 300 yen.
And while they were picking, I had a good time at the owner's house with herb tea.

From the morning after she picked blueberries, putting some blueberries on the yoghurt was her morning chore.

the season word "overseas travel" 0803

 
 
 
 
This summer, two of my 10 students (Now there are only ten students in my school), go abroad to participate in homestay programs. They were selected as member of the delegation of Utsunomiya students.
They go to New Zealand.
 
I don't say , "souvenir, please",  overseas travel
 
On a luxury cruise ship, overseas travel, with a sigh.

the pass for A-chan

I forgot to take a photo before trimming the bushes.
Now, of course Ah-chan can walk, and run.
She likes running around our house, and she tends to chose wide rode instead of this small pass.
So we cut and trimmed the bushes before she came.




 
We were so exhausted and sweated that we had lunch a restaurant nearby.

 
For some people gardening must be fun.
For us --- I'm afraid that gardening or trimming is still burden.
 
Anyway while discarding 10 things every week, we have to trim the garden little by little.

tongue

At Korean restaurants( in Japan), tongue is popular. There thin slices of tongues are served.
This is not a Korean style.
Sendai is famous for tongue dishes, such as tongue stew, grilled tongue, etc.
And recently the weave is coming to Tochigi.
A new restaurant where grilled tongue is served opens.


 
To tell the truth, it is not so inexpensive.
However I had a good excuse to have it.
I need to get much more power to take care my Ah-chan.
 
Before she came we had had it.
And after one week, she went back to Tokyo.
 
Today I'll go to a concert with my friends --- it is a good incentive.
