a0018711_1222085.jpgHello, everybody. How’re you doing? I’m very fine and the weather was fine as well.

Today, my work was easy and it finished at noon. Then, I went running with King. When I go running, I usually listen to Japanese music. But today, I listened songs of “WHAM!”. It was interesting that the scenery seemed different to usual the cause of the music.

Well, this morning, someone knocked my room and I woke up. That was Akiko. She said,
“Oh, you are here. That is fine. It’s nothing.”
Then, I had no idea why she did it. But I realized that she’d been worried about me. In fact, I went to bed 8 pm last night. The last time I met her was in the afternoon. Well, I’d thought Akiko had never been worried about others but I’d been wrong.

By the way, I got up at 9 am this morning. In a word, I slept for 13 hours. That’s why I’m pretty good today. This afternoon, I renewed the journal of for 4 days. I think I made my good friends, who read my journal everyday, tired. I’m sorry.

Then, see you probably tomorrow.

a0018711_17355997.jpgHello, everyone. How’re you doing? I don’t feel good and sleepy now. That’s why I’m going to bed now though it is 7:30 now.

Well, it was stormy when I woke up this morning. But it became clear by 9 am. I worked as usual, and had lunch. Then, I cooked the original spaghetti version 12. I used mainly cayenne, turmeric, oregano, thyme, potato, carrot, onion, cabbage, and flower. It was not bad but I thought I had better to add meat.

After lunch, I was reading a book while ate cereal. Then, I’d had too much before I knew it. And afterwards, I went walking with King. But I felt not good and it was cold today.

Although I haven’t had dinner yet, I’m going to bed now. I’m not hungry because I had lunch too much. Then, see you.

a0018711_17245021.jpgHello, everyone. How’s it going? I’m very fine. It was lovely weather again but a bit windy.

Today, Mike and I continued to renovate a house. Until today, we renovated the wall. And at last, it almost finished.
a0018711_17232142.jpgIt looks very nice. Like a new house. I was a bit impressed. When we finished it, the sun was declining westward. The sunlight made the building beautiful.

In the evening, I had dry curry and it was finished. I’m thankful to the curry for tiding me over 3 days. After dinner, I read a book, “Jonathan Livingston Seagull” written by Richard Bach. It is my favourite book. Afterwards, I had a hot spa. I could see much of stars in the sky again.

Then, see you in the mysterious world.

a0018711_1717486.jpgHello, everybody. How’s it going? I’m good. And also it was lovely weather. Well, I worked hard today. Maybe it was the longest hours since I came here.

This morning, I was bathed dazzling sunshine. It made everything beautiful. Sky, sea, woods, trees, leaves, stones, flowers, glass, weeds, and also buildings, everything was great. Then, I took many pictures as ever. When I went to the spa, I was surprised. There was Jane. Actually, she was waiting for Mike to get ready the boat. She was leaving then.

a0018711_17173123.jpgIt was very nice meeting her and Jo as well. She gave me her phone number. She lives in North Island. Although I’m not going to the North Island this time, I’m going there some time. I’m going back to New Zealand someday with certainly though I have to work hard in Japan before that.

Well, today, I helped Mike to build a house. Actually, it was to renovate, to be exact. But it was almost to build. I worked until 5 pm. It was a bit hard work, I like physical labor very much. It was fine day. It was very nice that working in sunshine. When I was working, Lynley gave me nice cakes. The cause of the cakes, I’d had energy to go running after working even though it was 5 pm.a0018711_17175456.jpg

After running, I had curry for dinner. I added some milk, butter, and flower to the curry. Then, it became like a stew. The taste was very nice. I decided cook a stew later though I don’t know how to cook it. Maybe I would create the original stew version 1 before long.

Then see you later.

a0018711_17121955.jpgHello, everyone. How are you doing? I’m very fine except for a bit suffering of full stomach.

This morning, I had curry for breakfast. And lunch too. The curry would tide me over for 3 days. Well, I said this phrase last night to Jo and Jane. Then, Jo said,
“Tide me over! That’s a good word! Where did you learn it, Kazu? Did you learn it at the school?”
“No. I learnt it from a dictionary. I often use this phrase. It’s a useful word to me.”
They smiled. I always think that my usual words are easy to remember for me. It’s difficult to remember that unusual words for my life even though it is the elementary words.

Well, when I was having breakfast, Akiko talked to me.
“You can’t have curry for dinner tonight.”, she said.
“Why?”
“Because Lynley and Mike would have us have dinner together.”
“Oh, really?”

In the evening, Akiko, Jane, and I went into their house. There were fantastic dishes on the table. By the way, Alex and Jo had left Hopewell. Alex went to Nepal. He is a quite strange guy. I wanted to talk to him deeper things. I wished I’d spoken English fluently. Jo left in the afternoon. She and Jane went kayaking for 3 or 4 hours I suppose though they’d done it yesterday as well.

a0018711_17124321.jpgWell, dinner time. As some people knew, I’ve got a quite tough stomach. First, I ate through all of kinds of food on the table. Then, I had a break for minutes. When everybody looked finish eating, Mike said,
“Kazu, have the remains of food. Eat everything.”
Maybe some people thought that it was just kidding but,
“Can I?”, I said and ate almost of all.
Then, Lynley looked scared of my appetite.

Before that, Ally (daughter of Lynley) tried to take a lamb chop from the big dish. Whenever she did it, Lynley reproved her because Ally had had it enough. But before long, Ally succeeded. When Lynley noticed it, she just smiled.

Well, my appetite was better than Ally’s, of course. I thought Lynley must think Ally’s appetite was just normal.

After dinner, I studied English by listening to English talking. Then, Mike gave me strong alcohol. Although I don’t like wine and beer, I like cocktail. It was made by Mike. I liked it. Although I was just listening talking, I felt my hearing skills were better than the time I arrived at Hopewell.

After that, I had a hot spa while watched lots of stars. I had it for an hours and a half. I was thinking many things then. I always think that it was good time to think many things that having a spa. When I lived with my parents, my mother often scolded me for having a bath too long. Actually, I liked thinking something while having a bath.

Today, I was thinking about mainly my future. Well, before I knew it, I wrote much though I haven’t often renewed this journal. It is better that the short diaries and quite often renewing as well, I think. Nevertheless, I am lazy as ever. Then, see you later.
