Going out on a date. (J)

Today we forgot all about house and moving...and cooking lunch for Okaasan and getting her to hula dance class...and treated ourselves to a date. YooHooo!

We drove out to Jozankei, a small hot spring resort village about 40 minutes away. It was a beautiful sunny day...we had lunch in a small soba restaurant, walked around the village, soaked out feet in the foot bath...and ended up getting a private hot spring room for two for just Y2,400 for 50 minutes in a little hotel off the main road.


Mind you...we did have to call Okaasan several times to remind her to eat lunch from something in the fridge...and remind her to get ready for hula dance class. And go.

But she did it all. We had a wonderful relaxing time. She enjoyed hula dance. The cat stayed home and slept.

And......I COOKED DINNER and it was "OOISHI!"

Tonight I heard about a Japanese woman who is doing a photo project about foreign wives of Japanese men...sounds interesting. I'm not a wife..but it might be fun to do....I'm going to find out more. She could photograph me ballancing miso soup on one hand and a salt shaker in the other....
