Not too much to talk about today. The hot weather is making me very lazy and I dread going up to the sewing room which is very hot and not cleaned up yet. I make quick trips up there to plug in the sewing machine and sew a seam or two on the 365 Challenge but I have yet to do anything creative. What happened to my patchwork blog!
It also rained and thundered big-time yesterday so I ended up unplugging the computer, the TV, and the air conditioner. Brought Choco in and then spent the afternoon reading. and cleaning (still!) I hope to see some friends today though. Need to be a little social.
Japan's humidity and heat are hard on the body but it does make for beautiful scenery and a lot of green so here are a couple of pictures of the lovely countryside that I live in. I always feel like I'm walking on a green ocean! These are the rice fields that are beginning to get heavy with rice.
And these other green pictures are of a nearby lotus "field" or bog that I pass on my daily walk. The flowers are about the size of a small pineapple and the leaves are about two feet in diameter. Lotus roots are quite crunchy and delicious and at this time of year we get to enjoy the lovely flowers and delicate green.
