Spring has finally arrived. Each day is a little warmer than the day before. I noticed that a few buds on my neighbor’s cherry tree are blooming. Some of my transplanted daffodils are blooming. I have a lot of new growth on my rose bushes. I was able to hang out sheets to dry today and they smelled so-o-o-o-o good when I put them back on the bed. My calendar is full for the next several days, so my urge to dig in the dirt must be suppressed. 🙂
Tomorrow we have guests arriving. The man is a national pastor that my husband went to school with in the USA. We are looking forward to their visit. They have a daughter that is friends with my daughter so R is especially looking forward to it. Saturday after they depart, R and B are going to their cousins house for a few days. This will give me some peace and quiet for studying. Monday I have to take a kanji test and a particle test. Tuesday is R’s birthday so we are taking her out to lunch. That evening we have a man coming to visit that is as missionary with our board. He is on a survey trip to determine where the Lord wants him to serve. On Wednesday, I have my final exam at language school. On Thursday, if the weather is nice, I plan to go cherry blossom viewing with my sister-in-law and a friend.
I have included some pictures from last year so that you will know what I am looking forward to!
