こんばんは！Hello! How was your Monday?
Today for me was pretty good. I am so busy at work, but I did get a lot accomplished today and I am feeling good about the rest of the week. Yes, it’s still early on I know!
Anyways, today is National Cat Day in Japan and I’ve been seeing a lot of cat photos in my Instagram feed. This is the first time in 19 years that we haven’t had a cat in the family… I miss Miki a bunch. When I typed my nightly blog posts, she would usually keep me company. But I know she was loved and felt loved so I am happy to have had shared the time with her.
Today’s photo is of our little Hinamatsuri display that is in our house. Mariko put it on display last week and we’ll keep it on the table until after Hinamatsuri is over. I think this display is pretty cute. It’s a compact version of the more elaborate displays that many Japanese families have but I like it a lot.
Well, I just had a big yawn so that means I should get ready for bed. I want to sketch a little bit tonight too… I have my sketchpad and pencil in my bag and I want to start up again with the art! It gets me thinking about if I can do photography and freehand art at the same time. You know, splitting the creativity… will I run out of the creative spirit? I guess there’s only one way to find out! Onward and upward!
