Then after the light lunch I went to a small confectioner (about 10 minutes walk from my house) to buy some pieces of cake for today is my mother's 81st birthday. Mother and I enjoyed them and nice cup of tea in the afternoon.
(4 pieces of cake was too much for 2 of us, we left 2 for tomorrow.)
Meanwhile my rabbit Tako was not very friendly. Today is one of her nervous days, she has hid under the desk or chair almost all day and run from me. Even now she is sometimes like this and I let her alone :( But at least I took this picture.
The small sailboat in this photo is made of paper, this is a pop-up card. This is a very beautiful card, which my American friend Alice has sent to me just recently.
"The best ships are friendships" it says. Actually! Alice and I have been pen-friends for more than 20 years, and she is one of the most charming letter-writers I've ever known. She always gives me the letter which makes me want to answer her soon. How fortunate I am to have such a good friend like her.
Today I also enjoyed to read some pages of a book & watch the DVD of some drama. These are all just ordinary, small things, though nice things. This is an quiet, ordinary, though happy day.
