kaminokusaki: (among flowers)
I got so distracted with the coming of spring that I missed my close friend's birthday. I'm terribly sorry, Shiraishi, but I hope the gift I have for you more than makes up for it.

In other news, I spoke with my sister. She's still with her boyfriend. They're happy, so I'm happy. She let me know that all my flowers are doing well and that my step-mom hasn't killed any. Though, I'm pretty sure that's because my dad nicely convinced her to let him handle it.

I also got to talk to him. He wanted to know how it was here, did I get to see the sakura, how Sanada and I were doing, if I was going to come to visit soon, whether or not I'd ever get to come back home permanently, how my paintings were progressing... I didn't make any promises about coming to visit though I did say I was hoping to do so in the near future.

I'm not sorry I let the sakura stick around a bit longer than usual. They're just too beautiful to let go after only a couple of weeks.

The trip back home was nice. It was so good to see my dad. Plus, I was terribly homesick for some reason. Of course, my sister was absolutely thrilled to see Sanada. I'm convinced she likes him more than me.

Sanada's grandfather liked the pottery I got for him from when I was in Kyoto. I had sent something after I got back, but I kept some just in case Sasuke proved to be a walking typhoon. This time I threatened to break his Playstation if he broke or killed anything. I gave Sanada's mom some Alstroemeria and tended to the plants that Sasuke hadn't destroyed.

All in all, it was a wonderful trip. A bit short, but there's really nothing I could have done about it.

I really don't like that this time of year is the busiest for my dad. I thought about going home for a bit over Chrismas, but it's just a bad time. Plus, my sister and Niou's brother are going to be doing cutesy couple things and ugh, do not want to be around that. Also, my step-mom's family is visiting and it's always super awkward. They have no idea what to make of me. I'm pretty sure they think I'm weak considering the whole wheelchair things since they've never seen me when I'm 100%. Ah well, their loss. At least they can't be upset that their poinsettias are slowly dying. It's a really neat party trick, watching them flip out over the flowers dying. I only put life back into them because dad tells me to.

Niou, when do you want to go to the cat cafe?

To my second most favorite person in the world that isn't related to me by blood: HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!

I know you're probably spending your birthday with Tezuka, so I'd like to steal you for a little bit on Sunday, if that's okay with you. I left part of your present in your nest, but you'll get the other part when we celebrate your birthday.

We get a power boost, which is great, but really? No control? I really don't like not being in control. This is bullshit. I might as well just stay in my cabin and prevent anyone from coming around me since I have no way of making sure not to use umbrakinesis on the people I actually like.

Tokyo was awesome. Sanada didn't electrocute anyone, but he did complain about the authenticity of the outfits at the photo place. I totally expected that and dressed up anyway. I kind of like the ponytail they put my hair into, so I put it up again while I did some painting and it works really well when paired with my headband.

Halloween was mostly good. Oshitari... you did a good job on the costume. I'm not sorry for punching you though.

If I had received feedback sooner, we totally could've been home within like three days. That probably would've gotten some kind of recognition. Maybe. Doubt it. Whatever. We're home, that gorgeous kimono is dust in the wind (literally), and I totally got to do things my way got to test out some fantastic new equipment. I have presents for people. Come to my cabin to get them.

Oh, and I came home to something really awesome.

kaminokusaki: (bored)
The area we stopped at for the night only has one good thing going for it: picturesque. Other than that, it's boring and I'm not nearly as warm as I would prefer to be. Why couldn't Sanada be on this quest?

On the plus side, only two monsters. That wasn't even a warm-up.

My sister had me take this quiz as soon as I walked through the door. I am a DEP (Dandelion, Echinacea, Peppermint) – tough, protective, and unflappable. I think that’s pretty spot on. My sister is a CDS (Chamomile, Dandelion, Slippery Elm) – easy-going, tough, talkative. If you know my sister, this is definitely true and she wouldn’t be my sister if she wasn’t the first two.

That was an unexpected trip home. My dad decided to take vacation before my sister started the next term and emailed me a bus ticket home. Like I was going to say no. So I spent a lot of time at the nursery with dad, attempting to stalk my sister on her dates (successful three out of five tries), and trying to ignore the occasional tingling in my legs fixing up the garden. My step-mom is pretty handy with herbs, but not the flowers my dad tends to bring home. Of course, I made flower crowns for my sister and her friends for some group date thing. (This was one of the ones in which I wasn’t successful.)

I also taught Sanada’s sister-in-law how to make a few vegetarian meals if only because it’s amusing to hear his brother whine about not getting enough meat in his diet. Sasuke and I fed the koi. It’s amazing how easily he does what you tell him when you threaten to tell on him to his mom if he acts up. Poked at the garden while Sanada’s grandfather played shogi. Neither him nor his opponent seemed particularly bothered when I had the wisteria bloom a bit more. Sanada’s mom was thrilled though. Apparently, it wasn’t blooming as well this year for some reason. All good now though.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY SANADA!!!

(ooc: yukimura exhausted himself growing a pine tree from a cone he "borrowed" from the gardens at Kenroku-en when they were in Kanazawa -- that's why he's been relatively quiet lately)
kaminokusaki: (tea)
Considering I was saved from the Worm Epidemic of 2015, I thought it would be a good time to post more pictures from our Kanazawa trip.

Day 1 )

(ooc: strikes deleted)
kaminokusaki: (ecstatic)
Kanazawa is absolutely beautiful. It's been raining off and on since Sanada and I have been here, but the sun has poked out here and there. The sakura are really happy. It's hard not to influence them staying for longer than they're supposed to. The tourists just think it's lucky. I'm definitely not going to say anything.

Pictures :) )

The cosmos broke through the soil. It's the tiniest little green sprout. I'm trying not to influence it to grow on purpose. I'd like to see how long it takes without my nudging pushing it along. Granted, I can't exactly prevent anything from happening if my good mood spreads out.

Shiraishi-kun, I asked my dad to pick out a variety of iris bulbs and send them to me without labels. I like surprises. He's also sending the others I mentioned if you want any of those.

Spent the entire day in the garden. My step-mom is getting quite good at cultivating the azaleas, but I think that might be more my dad's influence than mine. We went to the nursery after my dad got off work and spoke to the owners. I wish I could volunteer again, but I don't get to come home often enough to do it. That said, they're more than happy to fulfill my weird plant desires. I will probably be bringing back a Venus flytrap with me.

Dad's also going to take me to his office over the weekend to look at what he's been working on. I think he's stuck on something and thinks I can help. I've never really seen what he does since there's not like, billboards and stuff at camp. It's kind of exciting.

Niou and I are making a surprise visit home for our sibling's junior high graduation. Lucky them that they actually got to attend their graduation instead of being at camp. I can't wait to see them though, I haven't since I went home in September. Skype just doesn't make up for it. Plus, dad said we could go to the nursery. They've got a small shipment of chocolate cosmos bulbs on the way and are pretty sure they'll arrive while I'm there. I've been wanting one so long. Best belated birthday present ever.

Sanada, Mizuki-kun, Shiraishi-kun, Fuji-kun... can I count on you all to watch over my plants while I'm away? I have the watering cycle written up and I've spent the last few weeks reorganizing my plants so it'll be easier to make sure none of them get under or over watered. I set the lights on a timer for the ones that need the sun but can't yet be put outside. If there's anything I can pick up for you while I'm in the Yokohama area, just let me know.

My dad sent me this picture and told me to look up Bernini. While I don't exactly enjoy the subject matter... my gods that is one of the most beautiful sculptures I have ever seen in my entire life. Look at his hands and fingers where they meet her skin. It's absolutely stunning. I literally sat there staring at it for a good fifteen minutes from every angle I possibly could.

He's a horrible enabler because now I desperately want to carve something out of marble. It's probably a long shot, but I will give a great reward to whomever can get me a 500lb block of white or grey marble. Obviously, it has to be a reward I can easily get you. If not, no worries. I'll find some larger rocks when I can start running again and sculpt those into something.

Valentine's Day was enlightening. I saw things I never thought I'd see, only hear about, so it was generally an amusing evening for me. I received a wonderful cake with beautiful calligraphy. The frosting was put to good use. I wrote my own calligraphy with it.

My sister had a wonderful time on her date. I can't wait to see her next month. It will be fantastic. I should be walking again by then. Unless Hades is a dick and it lasts longer. I'd really rather not be a burden at her junior high graduation.

Tooyama-kun, I do hope you're okay. You sounded fine, but I'm worried I might have dislocated your ankle or something given the vine treatment you experienced.

Sanada, Renji, Niou. Weekly Disney movie night in my cabin. We can start with the good ones like Tarzan, The Lion King, Hercules, The Little Mermaid, Sleeping Beauty, Beauty and the Beast, Mulan, etc. This week can be Hercules. Seems appropriate, don't you think?

The worst part about winter is the lack of naturally-blossoming flowers. I've taken it upon myself to change that. At least here at camp. I asked my dad for some suggestions and he sent a few bulbs of three different flowers that he thought would work well in the soil here with a little help from yours truly.

Flowers )

Right now, I've only planted them around my cabin, but if anyone wants some, let me know and I'll put some around yours or give you a bouquet.
