Hello there September!
I could have sworn I had a few more weeks of my birthday month…but alas it is over and we are heading straight into fall, it seems. Not sure how I feel about this.
Last month, my Obon break consisted of three flights, five airports, and a typhoon! So much for swimming in the ocean every day. But I did get to spend quite a bit of time on or around the Seto Inland Sea, so I can’t really complain. And there is nothing like the joy of seeing good friends and family to fill your day with smiles! So glad I got to see everyone!
This month we have two holidays in Japan, the Respect for the Aged Day is on the 15th and the Autumn Equinox is on the 23rd. It’s a little early but I’m planning on doing a big fall cleaning of my apartment because I’ll be away again at the end of the year (which is when we usually do our big once-a-year house cleaning in Japan). And also because my optometrist may have mentioned that my blood tested positive for house dust and mold allergies last week. Is that even a thing? (My itchy eyes seem to be telling me yes.)
I’m also looking forward to another wedding and catching up with high school friends this month! What are you up to in September? Hope there’s less rain and more sun this month! x
