An early morning run in Chiba City brought me behind these boys on their way someplace. It was a Saturday, so I was curious where they would be going.Continue reading “on the way early Saturday morning”
Last one! Took a while to get here, but here is the final Travel Photo for this challenge.

My sister, brother, a couple of cousins (all of the above live in several parts of the United States) and I were chatting on Messenger about the Great Conjunction, and whether we could see anything from our various locations.
My sister and I were meant to meet in Japan this past June. My brother was meant to pop in to Singapore last month. We were meant to be in London now to spend Christmas with my Aunt & Uncle.
Zoom this Christmas will be the closest to seeing each other for a while.
We do not despair. We are grateful for technology. But we are looking to the day when we can meet in person again.
My US family are sporting photos of what they think might be heavenly bodies. Mine are meekly Christmas orbs hanging off trees on Orchard Road.
One of the joys of a vacation are memories made. Another is the inspiration to incorporate travel flavours into our home eating.

This lovely purple furoshiki is a gift from Older Daughter. She returned from a 2-week tour of Japan with her grandparents last night, and this is the beautiful & thoughtful gift she brought me; purple is my favourite colour, of course, and the double-sided pattern is very artistic! The furoshiki is used by the Japanese to wrap all sorts of things; Older Daughter says it is for me to use as a backdrop for my food pics.
A mother’s heart warmed.
