Tidying up and my joy

A few weeks ago, I got a beautiful bouquet of orchids from Fuyuhiko. They are very beautiful. I have been putting them into and taking them out of the fridge.

The other day, I met up with my old classmates and teachers of a kimono school. They were so keen to hear about my study abroad.

My friendships or existing connections in Japan are all related to my past hobbies such as floral arrangements, tea ceremony and kimono dressing. Books on arts of flower, tea, kimono and housekeeping still remain on my bookshelves, even though I threw away the rest of my old books. Yesterday, I finished cleaning up my house using Marie Kondo’s method of tidying.
