Refreshing!

One of my ex colleagues and a good friend of mine now opens her own school of home computing after they remodeled their old annex next to their house. It has turned out to be very cozy and comfortable space having two rooms: one for six computers and one for a table and a sofa for enjoying a coffee break. How I wish I could come to her school only if I don't have to drive one and a half hour for one way. Her town is surrounded by mountains and fields. Most of her students are housewives and seniors and I'm pretty sure she is a big help for them. She has plenty of skills and more than anything else she is a nice person. I visited her and her husband who are both good friends of mine along with other two friends and we enjoyed BBQ party, talking , walking down to their rice field in fallow being full of cosmos flowers at present. I picked up some vegetables from their field. Everything I had that day was such a rewarding experience.

Sounds like a wonderful lady!
Cosmos flowers are one of the easiest plant to grow in my area where I live... ps: thanks for the link my dear! Singapore has many japanese establishments including Isetan & Takashimaya. I love them, including Muji! Hope you'll visit here with your husband one day!

Your friend sounds lovely. How rewarding to be able to teach others skills that might not necessarily have the chance to learn them elsewhere.

And BBQing with friends is always a treat. And I am sure that Japanese BBQ is wonderful!
