Summer is still here
I can’t feel my favorite season coming to its end, but it is almost September. The wee hours are a little cooler that I sleep with my windows open. As I rode my son to nursery school today, the cicadas weren’t chirping as loud. Maybe they know that their time has come and that the typhoons are approaching us.
For me summer was great. I enjoyed watching the high school baseball championships and excitedly cheered on Saibi High School. A big pat on the back to them for reaching the semi-finals. During the Obon break, our friends gathered together to have a beach barbeque on Kashima Island. My family camped there for three nights and were lucky enough to catch a couple of shooting stars. I had a fantastic short summer vacation and have skin peeling from sunburn to prove it!
