It all happened so fast. For several months, Tak and I had talked about the possibility of getting a larger plot of land and we’d toyed with the idea of how we’d use it. It’s not like we made a rash decision when we decided it was time. That was only last Friday night, but once we made the decision to snap up the land in Yemple things have moved very fast.
Several important news items got lost in the race to build our new home. For one thing, we have moved into a home that Tak build for us. It is a large samurai house and the funny thing is, we had just finished furnishing the new house with furniture from Hosoi Ichiba. There’ll be more about the new house soon, but I here are some photos of our new furniture.
And that’s our kitty, Sayuri.
As I mentioned in yesterday’s blog, we are making great progress and last night I did some work on the Zen garden. This new plot of land is so large that it really reqiures a more comprehensive name than Yordie’s Zen Garden. I think you’ll see in the photo below that, as with the garden at Nishijima, the actual garden is still relatively small.
(1/8th of the new plot).
Perhaps we will need a new name for this new land, one that focuses on the fact that while Yordie’s Zen Garden is one of the main features, there will be many other things going on here. Taka, whachatink, baby?
