Creative Genius

Dateline Sunday - Yukia and Shosei took me to Acti Mori for some pottery fun. Mori is a city not too far away, and Acti Mori is half park/half cultural center. You can make paper, dye material, make soba, ride bikes, picknic, etc. We chose to make pots. They showed us a little video, reinterated some important rules (not that I could understand them), set us down at a table, brought us a slab of clay and let us at it. We all took it very seriously, but we had a lot of fun too. An hour or so later we all three had completed some sort of vessel. Shosei created a tall cup, Yukia had made a large shallow bowl, and I had created a vase. Next week I figure I'll end up with some more flowers and thought that might come in handy. One problem. They won't be ready for two months. Now I knew that they wouldn't be ready at the end of the day or anything, but two months. Guess I'll just have to buy a couple of vases at the hyaku yen.

You should definitely buy some daffodils! I got some and not only do they look beautiful, but they smell absolutely amazing!! They've made my whole room smell heavenly.
