today was another peach of a day weather wise and after stretching the legs along the river I popped out to get some ohagi cakes from our local. the women are dead nice and the smell of the steamed hinoki wood, grilled rice and sweet red azuki beans is a very tempting combination.
today was also a day for picking up the new year postcards. I can't believe it's almost that time already - last year we left it too late so I made sure we got our pack of postage paid, plain postcards for the printer (easy for you to say) before they sell out. got some long johns from uniqlo as well: they have a big warm-biz campaign on just now. perhaps now I'll fit in a bit better with all the old timers at the bath house.Posted by stupot at November 21, 2005 05:29 PM
