#Ten Things of Thankful: September 26, 2020

  1. rice cooked with kidney beans, which we had for lunch last Monday 

  2. seafood senbei (crackers)  

  3. Autumnal Equinox Day: It is a national holiday in Japan, and the road in front of our house was relatively quiet on that day.
  4. walking in a park early in the morning on Tuesday  

  5. It was sunny on Wednesday, and we put our futons on the roof to air them in the sun. 
  6. Juicy Japanese pears I've got at the supermarket

  7. cooking programs that my father often watches on TV, which give me new ideas.
  8. The Typhoon No. 12 did not hit this area.
  9. I had my hair cut on Friday.
  10. the lily turf in front of our house  

Ten Things of Thankful


  1. I'm glad the typhoon didn't hit your area.
    The lily turf is beautiful!

  2. It is a long-standing tradition here in south Louisiana to have red beans (kidney beans) and rice on Monday. Back when Monday was laundry day and a fire was kept boiling water all day for washing, another pot was set at the fire to boil the beans, and thus beans and rice was the dish every Monday and still is for many people.

    Lily turf is lovely i've never seen it!

  3. Some friends who used to leave in the area, often shared their Asian Pears (as some people call them hear) with us. They are so good.
    So glad the typhoon missed your area!
    I have never planted lily turf. It is beautiful!

  4. good news on the non-event, hurricainistically-speaking

    autumn is interesting, only drawback is it leads to winter (and the cold)... I will resolve not to add a note of surprise to my complaint at this seasonal fact
    have a good week.

  5. Awesome no typhoon and pleasant walks.


Thank you for your visit.
