Summer Weather It’s topped 80 degrees F. a couple of times now and it’s been warm enough for me to wear shorts twice now. It rained yesterday and is staying mid 70’s now.
Watermelon prices – have come down a bit, but are still pretty pricey.
Jizo – I’ve been riding in the car to the garden so I haven’t been able to take a picture, but I watch out the car window as we drive by. The can of oolong tea is gone and there is a toy action figure in its place.
End of Semester – I’ve graded the final exams and figured the grades for the students. Now I need to figure out how to post the grades on the university grading web site. Being illiterate makes so many things difficult!
Stitching – I’m working on the tiny teacups afghan. Just so you know - the teacups aren’t that tiny, even though that’s the title of the pattern book. On this afghan fabric, each teacup is about four and a half inches square.
Neko-chan – After Ted’s bike ride, the cat was under a car in the parking lot in front of the apartment building. Ted sat down and had me throw a little bag of ham and cheese out the window to him. He was able to get the neko-chan to come a little closer with each little bite of food. We’re going to buy a bag of dry cat food at the big grocery store for our new little friend.
Big Bug – Mary (http://acoloradostitcher.blogspot) is not only a famous blogger and stitcher, she also knows about bugs. She left a comment on my bug post that the bug in our apartment is the Asian Longhorned Beetle and is causing a lot of damage in the US.
Left handers? – I have still not seen a left handed person in Hokkaido. What do you think – are there no left handers or have I not seen one yet?
