I felt guilty all summer that we didn't DO anything with Okaasan - what with my knee, the dramas in England, the work, the garden etc etc
So today - gorgeous weather, no work, no Hula dance class - we headed for the hills and enjoyed a Family Day Out with soba, fall colors at Hoheikyo Dam and a footbath at Jozankei....and it was fun!
Nice, relaxing ordinary life...just what I needed. Okaasan seemed to enjoy a trip out...I'm obviously getting middle-aged when I enjoy this kind of drive-out-into-the-countryside.
Slippers and a pipe can not be far behind.
