Not too much to say, it looks like spring is finally making it's way to Japan, and by extension Kanuma. The plum and apricot trees are blooming and my little bonsai is putting out leaves. The weather is alternating between cold winter days and warmer windy spring ones. I had a great walk along the river last wednesday because of the later. Yesterday was soccer practice, I'm so sore now....it doesn't help that I've got a bruse on my upper calf from being kicked. Tomorrow is not going to be very fun if I'm this stiff today.
