Hey everyone. Its been raining here a bunch lately like cats and dogs. But, it snows at the same time too — nothing like we have back home. I just finished some nice spagetti, and am gettin ready for a good nights sleep. Did painting today, which is new to me, but I think im gettin the hang of it. But I miss-read the label of the something and accidently cleaned the brush with laquer!! Aghhh! No Good! Theres supposed to be a festival here soon? Reiko-san explained it to me that there are beans that are thrown in the household to ward off pests i think? Sounds fun 😉 Anyway, I better go nighty nite. Having a great time here, and learning tons of cool stuff.
