a pair of shoes

there are five kids in the house.  parents bought a pair of new
shoes for everyone at the end of the year and told them, "wait
until new years day!".  so the kids put the shoes away, but
couldn't resist staring and smiling, waiting for aspecial day as
if they can be a little princess when the new year comes.  this
was our tradition in my house.  so even today, when i buy a
new pair, i feel like waiting for a while.  i think it was
sometimes in august when i bought this pair of ballet shoes since
my favorite white shoes were worn out.  then i waited for long
enough until i feel like wearing.  today, i did a test walk with
this bronze ballet shoes.  feels good to be with comfortable one.

this one is about to flower

getting on a blue train

train leaves 5:03 am.  my purpose is to visit a little
bakery in north.  it takes only an hour by fast train but
i prefer taking slow local train which takes five hours,
just to enjoy slow time as train moves and look at the
changing window scene

as soon i got on a blue train, i found an empty seat by the
window and sat down, opened a sandwich box
i bought at the train station and hot coffee on the side,
nm, this is what like about traveling, feels like i am allowed
to enjoy day dreaming while i sit here, i wonder what kind of
mystery is waiting, what kind of people i would encounter
in north,  i feel free

#15 storm was here today.  so we stayed inside most of the day.
my nephew came to watch peter rabbit with me. but he fell a
sleep immediately.  his mother was worried that he will be too wild
 tonight if he sleeps too long during the day.but i let him sleep for a
long while.  nice to see quiet boy sometimes. he woke up later,
i gave him a cup of milk and snack. in the evening, storm
seem to be gone.  we made a little walk around the house. 
while we walked, he enjoyed string games and showed
me each time.  i did some crochet.  making some progress
on blue bag. now sipping hot tea and i am here.

sometimes, the bad weather can be a clever reminder
to slow down and to relax

slow morning


my nickname was apple when i was little
have been enjoying compote in yogurt for breakfast lately
another typhoon is on our way
i was unusually too tired and felt sick today and took
a long long nap, when i woke up day light was already gone,
after such day, i crave for combination of good coffee & chocolate,
do you have certain combination of food that you crave for
when you feel too tired?
bite of chocolate and coffee a day might be good
