happy sunflower

suddenly this week i really have a strong desire to go to an onsen. we don't really live near any so we don't go often. *sigh* maybe because it's hot and humid, and i'm sweaty, so i want to take a bath. or maybe, i first arrived in japan in july so i am getting nostalgic about that time and want to do things i enjoy in japan. oh well. hopefully we can go soon.

my pumpkin is turning green again. good news!!

pretty rose:
