After the cherry blossoms

The season of new green leaves is just with us now. Every size of trees in each housegarden and along the streets and roads is nothing but beautiful. It' so hard to keep my eyes just foward while driving along the beautiful streets with green trees. Unlike my usual hectic driving, stopping at a red light make me feel I'm lucky. It gives me some time to enjoy the geen scenery, and what's more to take one or two pictures with my mobile phone pulling down a window.

Another shopping

I went to one of the biggest furniture shops in the city. Since I got the new printer at home, then, I've found that the present space that the old printer has sit wasn't wide enough for a new printer. The new one is so called a job-printer and a intergrated fax, printer,scanner, copier unit. It sounds so exciting. I haven't tried these functions except scanner from the new printer. Nor I didn't make a desicion on whichi model I should choose for my computer desk. There were too many! That was a welcoming surprise at the beginnning then it has turned out to be a bewilderment. Soon I was runnning out of time and headed for home.
I need time to make a decision.

New Printer

I got a new printer this afternoon. I'll come back and tell more about it. At this moment, I'm quite busy installing printer drivers and other required files. I'll see what I can do. Wish me luck! By the way, I've sent this picture from my mobile phone. It's quick, isn't it.

Post from my mobile phone

I uploaded this picture from my mobile phone.  
I kept this in my mobile photo file.
As you see the date, it was 1990.
My son and my daughter were just adorable
and still they are.

How exciting!

This is my newest work of porcelain paintings. It's about 15cm x 4cm. It's really something that I have such a nice group of good friends to enjoy china paintings. We get together once a month for painting at our dear friend/teacher's house whichi is full of her beautiful items of her own. Our main purpose is to learn china paintings, of course, but at the sametime we just can't stop filling in one another on our daily this- and- that happinings in each life with a family. Such a refreshing time with learning and having lunch together and chatting. I love it.

New tool

I got a USB cable to exchange jpg files inbetween my mobile phone and my pc. I often take pictures with my mobile phone. Everytime I want to use those images on my blog, I simply send an e-mail attached an image file to my computer, or just remove a micro SD card out of a mobile phone and set it into a card slot in my computer. It is waste of time and waste of mailing expenses, though. So that made me get an idea to connect my mobile phone and my computer. That is much better time-wise and expense-wise. well, its utilitysoft can cover for music, address books, and files. Especially, it might be a good way to back up your address book. Why not make a best use of it?

Cherry blossoms along the sidewalk

Today I drove my husband to his office, since he was going to attend one dinner party that evening, he'd decided to leave his car at home.
In Japan, the drunk driving law is getting much severer for these years, one can't simply drive if he drinks. Otherwise, he will get into a very serious trouble.
So, back to my topic today---after I dropped him, I drove another route back home where I ran into the long line of cherry trees in full bloom along the sidewalk. It was such an appealing scenery to me so I stopped my car to take some pictures. (Gee, I always carry my digital compact camera around with me. I am a photo-freak if you say so.)
Here you will see a slide show. You can also get a large image by clicking.

Japanese love cherry blossoms

Cherry blossoms are in their full bloom here and there around my area.
As the spring is moving up to the Japanese archipelago from the south to the north, we just can't miss the cerry blossoms in full bloom at the nearby parks, the famous sightspots for their cherry blossoms.
Why people are so keen to take a look at cherry blossoms at this season?
The cherry blossoms burnst into bloom all at once and fall onto the ground within a few days.
Many Japanese people take it that the cherry blossoms' fragile life is something similar to ours. Life is short but so endearing.
I visited the Nagoya Castle where you can see thousands of trees with thier cherry blossoms at the peak. It was crowded with people.
