The Taste of the Lemon Water

Bee put some lemon juice into a glass of water by herself.

She didn't add any sugar or honey so it was not lemonade.
What did it taste like?

"Sour!"she screamed.
She might have put in too much juice.

"Sour!"she continued after sipping her water again,
"I'm becoming smaller when I drink it!"

I understood what she meant.

Don't you feel like you're shrinking when you have something sour?

The Watching Dog, Cocoa

Cocoa, our dog, noticed something strange
while she was taking a nap.

"Mom! Someone is coming!" she barked.

"Bow wow!"

"Bow Waaah! Mom! It's serious!"

Even though she warned me it was an emergency,
it was funny that she was in the blanket
and it was my husband that she heard.

My original Japanese entry.

Thanks to Lang-8


The Grass

The grass is always greener on the other side of the fence.

The flower is always redder it the other window.


Japanese Lunch Box キャラ弁

Since my daughters had events in their nursery and school on the same day
last month, I made their lunch boxes.
I selected キイロイトリKiiroi-Tori from リラックマRelakkuma.

This is my youngest daughter's bento.

She said she liked it and finished it before she she came home.

The second picture shows my eldest daughter's one.

She said she liked it, but she ate it while hiding her friends
because it looked childish.
She is in a middle school now, so I stopped making a kyara-ben for her.
(It's a sorrow!)

The last picture is the bento for my husband.

It had no character but I used the rest of nori,
Japanese sea weed, for his rice balls.
He had no reaction.
Maybe he wanted some cute character.

Thanks to Tony and Cruz for correcting my English.
