Local summer festival  【町内の祭り】

2012.07.15

We have gone to our local summer festival since my daughters were born. It wasn’t held last year due to Great East Japan Earthquake thought, we went to the festival wearing yukata this year as well.

My daughters looked very happy to see their friends there.


子供が生まれて以来、毎年参加している町内の祭り。去年は震災の影響で祭り開催は自粛でしたが、今年も浴衣を着て参加しました。

お友達にも会えて、娘たちうれしそう。

One more thing that I looked forward to was a lottery held at the end of the festival. Everybody who put the numbered ticket stub into the lottery box wins a prize every year. We won a 5kg-rice-bag three years ago, and some of our neighbors also won the same.

Then this year, we won a set of kitchenware! It was the sixth prize, but not bad.

Our daughters ate some food there, and my husband and I enjoyed beer. It was fun this year again.

100 selected stories  【オー・ヘンリーのお話】

2012.07.10

I often tell some stories to my kids before they go to bed. Unfortunatelyy, I ran out of stories and was repeating the same stories over and over so my kids were getting bored with them. Rcently, I bought a story book below which is also good for my English study.

寝る前は、子供にお話しをしてあげています。
けど最近ネタに尽きてきて、同じ話ばかりになり子供が集中して聞かず面白くないようなので、英語の勉強も兼ねてこんな本を買ってみました。

100 Selected Stories (Wordsworth Classics)



This book is amazing!
It’s a thick book, and contains 100 stories. It costs less than 250yen!!

Each story is only about four or five pages, but it’s very difficult to read for me.
I scanned the book, but there are many unfamiliar words and it is a little hard to understand the stories.
I wonder if native elementary school students read such high level stories.


この本、すごいんです。
100話もあるのに、250円もしないのです。

1話は大体4,5ぺージで短いのですが、な、なんと、結構難しい。
知らない単語がよく出てきて、一回さらっと読んだだけでは内容がつかめなかった。
ネイティブの小学生はこんなの読んでいるんだろうか・・・?


I was supposed to tell these to my kids each night before bed, but I don’t feel like reading it now and the book has been collecting dust on the shelf for a few weeks.
Sorry, kids.

English study 【英語の勉強】

2012.07.04

About two months have passed since I started a weblog to keep my motivation to study English. I have been trying to do a little bit of English every day, but I can’t make enough time to keep up with my English study schedule.
My first plan was to get in three hours a day of study, such as listening, writing, reading, grammar and vocabulary, but I realized it was very difficult. Working full time, taking my kids to and from preschool, cooking dinner, taking a bath with kids, and other housework; how can I make three hours a day?
Then I decided to schedule down my study plan to enjoy studying, as not to be frustrated.

I only study a text book now shown below. It says there are 2600 questions and grammar explanations. It also includes a CD for listening. I do 30 questions a day so that I can finish this text within three months.
I will report the result of study in three months.
