A couple of the items on my kotatsu: a glittery Christmas tree that I don’t quite have the heart to put away (despite the fact that I hate glitter) and my fan for Japanese fan dancing. The former was a Christmas present from Fumiko-sensei, and the latter was a gift from one of the parents of the fan dancing students when I first began. It’s my goal to get my own beautiful fan, but they’re pretty expensive–generally about 5000-8000 yen (at least $50).
Another day at home after work (sans one hour for flamenco practice). Played a little Dragon Age. Am currently watching Julie & Julia. Thought about making cookies, but ended up not because apparently they flatten a lot and that’s a challenge in my tiny oven.
I’ll try harder for a more interesting picture tomorrow. 🙂
