ハワイアンリングが小さくなってしまいました。 そこで、市川宝石店さんにアイデアを伝えて、 アーモンド型のペンダントヘッドにしました。 音符も入れると可愛い音がします。 My Hawaiian ring has become smaller. So I told my idea at Ichikawa Jewelry Store and made it into a nice pendant head. I added a music notes, so it makes a cute sound. Zengyo, Fujisawa-city
藤沢駅の１階にあるフルーツパーラーです。 馬渕さんと皆川さんと３人、楽しい語らいの時間でした。 パンケーキが小さくなっていて少しがっかり。 善行市民センターの桜は満開です。 I had an enjoyable time with Mabuchi-san and Minagawa-san at a fruit parlor on the first floor of Fujisawa station. The pancakes were getting smaller and I was a little disappointed. The cherry blossoms at Zengyo Community Center are in full bloom. Fujisawa and Zengyo, Fujisawa-city
湘南腰越新わかめを頂きました。 善行市民センターの桜が咲きました。 春の訪れが嬉しい！ I received Shonan Koshigoe new wakame seaweed from my friend. The cherry blossoms at Zengyo Community Center have bloomed. I’m happy with the arrival of spring! Zengyo, Fujisawa-city
It has been over 5 years since I’ve owned a car. In the past if I needed a car, I rented one. However, now that I have a kid, I make unplanned trips to the store. So renting a car isn’t a great option anymore. Luckily for me, I was able to ship my mom’s old car to Hawaii. It took about a week for the car to arrive in Hawaii from San Diego. Now the old car has a new life on a tropical island.
From March 5th proof a vaccinations will no longer be required at restaurants and many restaurants in Hawaii are now allowing more seating which makes the wait time much shorter. I am happy that the strictest of the Covid regulations are now over with. There is still a way to go but it is starting to feel like Hawaii is getting back to normal again. I am hoping that by the summer everything should be back to where it was before the Covid Virus came to Hawaii.
“The Chili DInner is a fundraiser for the Keystone Community Task Force Annual Scholarship Program” (KCTF newsletter). We were unable to participate for the past two years, due to heavy snow in 2020 and corona virus pandemic in 2021. This year, the weather was nice and many people participated. Chili, cornbread, hotdogs and muffins were all delicious. I’m sure that the fundraiser was successful.
チリディナー（chili dinner）は地域の住民で作る団体 KeyStone Community Task Force が出す奨学金の基金集めのために毎年２月に催されますが、一昨年は大雪のため、昨年はご存知コロナ禍のため行きそびれました。幸い、今年は好天気に恵まれ、住民の参加も上々で、有志の皆さんが作るチリ、コーンブレッド、ホットドッグ、マフィン、どれも美味しく、どうやら基金集めは成功のようでした。

Lately I have made a new resolution to have a Saturday morning outing somewhere special with Bali. Bali loves a place called TimeZone that has lots of different games from ping pong to basketball to shooting to car racing all in one place. I like some of the games such as air hockey and shooting the dinosaur and basketball. Other Saturdays we will go to the beach and to the zoo, and if it rains we will go and get a milkshake, bubble tea or a yoghurt or icecream together. I’ve asked Bali to make sure we try a new place each time as Sydney is bursting with a variety of take away or sit in places which is another thing I really enjoy about Sydney.
