left overs from afternoon.not leftovers actually because i didnt begin to eat them.
the red cubes are a really intense strawberry jelly.the blue waves are a candy with real gold foil sparkles and the fish are very sweet dissolve in your mouth and make the green tea not so bitter kind of traditional japanese sweet sweets.


camera cord

its a hodge podge (whatever that means) of images taken over the past few days

kitchen window, despite the weather there is always a rainbow

that room at night becomes one big futon where hana rolls around and at 5 am crawls all over us

little girl with teeth

this morning


we went to an exhibition on the weekend of artists who use masking tape as their medium.we could buy beautiful coloured tape which they had especially manufactured.the hot pink was irresistable.

hana is not impressed with the hat thing

and thank goodness for my neck she has taken to the pram :-) her neck seemed fine when she woke up too.



as always when i come back to japan from drought stricken australia it doesnt stop raining.although our house isnt a traditional japanese house actually its not even a house..the windows here do frame a beautiful green view of the adjacent park.hundertwasser was right in saying that colours are so much more vibrant and beautiful on rainy days.
its quite humid here and the only thing to enjoy about that is the smells coming out of and lingering around my box of essentail oils.
i took little hanny for a walk today, she was fascinated by the umbrella.not sure if fascinated is the right word but she did a good job of getting us both wet. i was so happy to find organic frozen peas at the supermarket. she hasnt really eaten peas and with her obsession for all things small and edible i couldnt resist. when we got home and after steaming them it was such a pleasure to drop them on her tray and watch her pick them up and eat them. that was today's highlight.watching her little fingers dancing with green peas.



well its been a long time between posts.so long in fact i dont know what to write.
and the cameras broken and the baby has a cold so i shouldnt really be here right now.
