Peace... and a new Bike


Good morning!

Good Morning in many, many languages.

GGOOOOD MoorrrNNiiinnnGSU!!\( ̄∇ ̄●)”

Rain still falls during this mid-summer, a miserably-wet Kanto.

Last, the week was filled with rough weather...So I wonder what sky we’ll see this week…

【I’m a bear, I am PEACE (> へ <●)”】


[MONDAY]

(193rd day of 2016)

This morning, I woke up at 3:00 am...I was able to see the EURO 2016 finalists.

A beautiful opening, just like the Olympic Opening Ceremony

The finalists were Portugal and France

But, my goodness, there were a lot of moths on the field… (゜-゜●;)

They were on the officials’ suits, along with being on the players’ uniforms...T

he moth must be excited for this game, so they came to watch… how envious I am…The game began late at night… must be tiresome for the players…

And… the match begins!! Still… Ronaldo….He faced a collision with another player and injured a ligament…While in tears, he was quickly tagged out…he must have felt really mortified…Even with that...

As much as they pressed, France couldn't score a goal for themselves…

and the match continued on for a long while...

And… that was when Portugal (Éder) took a chance, and made a goal…

And from then, Portugal held up that one point, Ending with them becoming the winner of EURO 2016.

But… France’s number 18 (Moussa Sissoko) He was really good…

I felt very pumped as I watched him play (゜∇゜●) Even as I watched this match, I thought France would win…That was the kind of tension I was feeling while watching...…But contrary to my thoughts, Portugal had stolen the spotlight And took the small chance to perfect victory… they really are strong, Congratulations!!!

This week has started on a feisty note, with the weather being hotThe sky is blue, and it feels like it will be a hot Monday...May the rest of this week be warm.


[TUESDAY]

(194th day of 2016)

Today is a very hot Tuesday.

As I swept by the convenience store, I saw some cats chatting under the shade…

It’s hot today, so it must be bothersome to be outside so much.

Today, I’m having Marron-Marron bread, potato salad and Takoyaki.

Marron cream and whip cream spread over bread. While they are very sweet, they are just delicious...


[WEDNESDAY]

(195th day of 2016)

Today, I find myself having two pieces of peanut cream toast again.

Although the forecast said it would rain, It did not rain so much. Lucky me…

However… the humidity makes the air so moist.

Today, the bike I ordered had arrived, and I put it together, sweating in the while…

Finally able to install those pedals I had in store.

As I’ve been using the old Mamachari bike from back home, which has baskets on both the front and back…Looking at my bike looking so cool… it gives me a strange feeling…

And I’ll install those handlebars and brakes that had been resting together with the pedals!!

I’ll take good care of this bike… since I bought it…

Yet… the tires are so thin!

(゜Д゜●)”


[THURSDAY]

(196th day of 2016)

It is raining hard in Tokyo… While Kanagawa has the sun still shining…

Even though they aren’t that far from each other…

When I checked their scenery on TV, they looked like opposites to each other…

But, it seems like it’ll rain a lot later at night.

Just when I thought the rain had receded… heavy rain.

During such a night of heavy rain, I ate Omurice and steamed Hokkaido Cheese over bread.

As always, delicious.

Tonight, I installed the handlebars and started placing the brakes in.


[FRIDAY]

(197th day of 2016)

Today, rain has been falling since morning, and before leaving, I saw on the morning news some strange incidents…

Even we are just living our lives out normally…

Why do we try to take away others’ lives….?

It only gives birth to pain, suffering, and rage…

It saddens me…

If this world could be like one that follows the film “Pay It Forward”...

May a kind wind connect us all together…

Today, Kanto is having heavy rain suddenly…

And based on what’s on TV, the sloping streets of Chiba are like a river from the rain…

When I returned home once, only to leave later in the evening, the rain had stopped…

But the train had been very delayed by the heavy rain…

I’ll take a Highball on my way home...


[SATURDAY]

(198th day of 2016)

With a cloudy sky early this morning, the clouds waned away later to let the sun shine on this hot day.

This morning, I had some nice and soft white bread, making them into toast, one spread with toasted soybean while other was half spread with pudding cream and half with hazelnut cream.

And when I took a bite… Definitely, what good bread!!

When night fell today,

I felt through my body a faded BOOM!!

What? Is there a summer festival nearby…?

When I went out onto the rooftop…it felt it was towards Yokohama…In the cloudy night sky, although small, I could see fireworks go up…

Another step into feeling the summer.Although I haven’t heard the sounds of cicadas yet…

Tonight, I installed the breaks and its wires, cutting and stripping them… And the brakes are done!


[SUNDAY]

(199th day of 2016)

Huh? Early this morning, as I wake, I can hear in the distance the faint sound of the cicada’s cries…

Although it stopped soon after, it is the year’s first sound of the cicadas.

Although for a moment, it’s another step into the feeling of summer…

Or… the punchline could be that it’s just the sound of an alarm clock…

On such a morning, I had some fried food… and peanut cream toast.

There are still clouds this morning, all white in the sky, But I wonder if today will become hot too…

May everyone have a good Sunday…

and…May the start of the new week be warm…

Thank you for your hard work this week, everyone.

It is the start of a new week.

May everyone spend the upcoming new week filled with warmth.

May each day and hour of the week, be filled with kindness and gentleness...

May a gentle wind… keep kindly blowing in your heart...

It’s alright. It’s alright.The wind has blown!!

Now, let it interconnect with each other...

Now live your life!!!\(●゜▽゜)/\(゜▽゜●)/\(゜▽゜●)/………

【May the world be swept by winds that carry kind and warm smiles… never to let them ever disappear...】

Do not let these warm lives and winds be erased from existence!!!!!!!!!!

【Once again this week… one step at a time… may today continue onto a warm and gentle tomorrow…】To a new week…

Have a safe journey!!

Since I’ll be going to San Francisco this week… I’ll be writing next week’s Monday Diary after I come back home from overseas.

Thank you very much for reading.
