Cherry Blossom Festival

Tweet I went to the Northern California Cherry Blossom Festival in San Francisco’s Japantown neighborhood yesterday. It’s held every year on two weekends in April. Of course, it’s only been 5 weeks since the disaster in Japan. Maybe the organizers were not sure about whether to have this fun event this year. However, it’s really […] [...]

An Early Spring Walk

Orchard

Tweet A few days ago, I went to a special park in my town. This park is a kind of garden around an old house. (I didn’t get a good photo of the house.) I like walking around in the garden. There are different flowers in every season. You can see a gazebo behind the […] [...]

Halloween 2010

Tweet This year I was really busy during October. I wasn’t able to plan a Halloween party. It’s too bad, because I love having Halloween parties. Here are some photos from a couple of years ago. Here are some small lanterns I put outside my place. We usually put decorations outside our homes as well […] [...]

Wedding Anniversary

Tweet Yesterday was my seventh wedding anniversary. My husband and I got married in 2003 in San Francisco. This year, we didn’t want to spend a lot of money on an expensive dinner or expensive presents. However, we had a nice time. We packed a picnic and went to a park near the edge of […] [...]

WonderCon

Tweet On Saturday, my husband, my friend, and I went to San Francisco. We went to a convention called WonderCon. This convention is for fans of comic books, animation, movies, TV shows, and so on. Last year, about 32,000 people went to the convention–women, men, kids, older people, etc. It’s not the biggest convention like […] [...]

Wildflowers

Tweet On Saturday, I went to a “Wildflower Festival” at a park. It’s a really big park. It’s not a national park like Yosemite or the Grand Canyon, and it’s not a state park, but it’s bigger than a city park. It’s called a “regional park.” Spring is the best time for wildflowers, and I […] [...]

It’s a Long Road

Tweet I’m sorry I haven’t posted this summer. I had a health problem at the beginning of the summer. I’m getting better, but I had to concentrate on that for a while. Here’s something that has no words but is very interesting: These two guys drove from San Francisco to Washington, D. C.–all the way […] [...]

Take a Peek at the San Francisco Bay Area…Present Tense

Tweet Do you remember the present tense? (she walks, I read, he tells me, they buy some coffee, etc.) It’s probably one of the first things you learned in English. One place where you will often find the simple present tense is in captions–the explanatory writing that goes with a photo in a newspaper, magazine, […] [...]
