Lucy's Life Turned Upsidedown

DSC_1133 copy

Even after telling my mom, in the comment section on last post, that Japanese weather forecasts are almost always accurate, right down to the minute, we have had clear skies since last night, on what was supposed to be the first "full day of snow" this year. If it makes anyone feel a bit better for me, the sky is starting to gray-up as I write this.

Still, we did have snow over night two nights ago, and the chickens (both named Lucy) weren't too thrilled about it. They spent about an hour standing in the open door wondering what the heck was going on, sometimes tasting the snow. Eventually they managed to run across a snowy area to another snow-less island about one square meter with nothing but cold wet concrete. Here, they found themselves trapped again, and had to wait for me to coax them into the scary white stuff.

So, with any luck, readers should get ready for lots of pictures of snow that resemble... the pictures of snow I took last year and the year before. There should be a little more variety this year though. (I can't wait to get a photo of one-day-old daughter buried up to her neck in snow! :D )

Finally, a plea goes out to any Santa experts. Friday I will be visiting a local kindergarten dressed in full Santa gear. The kids have some questions and they demand answers.

  • How do you make all the presents? (and distribute them all to Wal-Mart?)
  • How can reindeer fly without wings?
  • Why does Santa ride reindeer?
  • Why does vegetable soup make reindeer strong?
  • How does Santa make the vegetable soup? (apparently, the teacher told the kids that reindeer love vegetable soup)

I figured I could cover a few of them by saying that when the reindeer eat vegetable soup, it gives them lots of gas. Santa then uses a long pole with a match at the end to light their farts and propel them through the air. I might need some back-up answers though... So to anyone reading this with a young child, please ask them for me.

Excellent snow pictures, love the persimmons. Great fan of the blog too although I usually only lurk.

Happy Xmas to you all.

I love the picture of the persimmon tree with snow on it. Great colours!

You all are getting only a little snow up there, and I am STILL seeing mosquitoes down here. (southern wakayama)

Hopefully those two things will change from this week on.

Ha ! Hope the Santa gig went well. The other day a kid at the local park asked me "When you were a kid, what did you aspire to be?" I responded with a quick "kikori," whereby he gasped, "Eeeeeeeeee!"

By the way, the snow pictures never get old. They're always just amazing. Thanks for sharing.

Good afternoon. Lack of money is no obstacle. Lack of an idea is an obstacle. Help me! I can not find sites on the: Bontril versus meridia. I found only this - loss meridia result weight. Meridia, this can be found to a binge of brands.

How are you. Prove all things; hold fast that which is good. Help me! Help to find sites on the: Window coverings photos. I found only this - window coverings solutions. Purchasing brothers are another person, window covering. Determined about falling a voluminous someone by including all of the clause so this is male, window covering.
