kaminokusaki: (kicking sanada's ass)
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.

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.

Dad's been busy lately, so I haven't gotten anything new lately, which is both annoying and helpful. Annoying in that I want to try different things; helpful in that I can train with the stuff he's already sent. For example, I've managed to make the thorny vines actually release their thorns. I haven't tried this in training or combat, so I don't know how fast they go. Maybe it depends on my mental state when I decide to release them.

Six weeks. Spring and summer have gone by way too fast for my liking.

I'm considering making a quick trip home after Obon. Maybe a long weekend or something when my dad is more available. As much as I love the nursery, it's not as much fun if he's not there helping too. Though, I suppose I could just crash my sister's dates and make sure the plants at Sanada's house haven't been destroyed by Sasuke the Tornado.

I'm bored. Someone entertain me before I try to turn camp into a tall grass maze filled with traps.

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.

The path to the main building is lined with red poinsettias and the Ice Age tulips. Don't let your pets eat them. I won't be held responsible if they get poisoned since I warned you in advance. I managed to get some ivy to grow up the columns and curl slightly around some of the lights.

Atobe-kun, I planted a few of the Ice Age tulips around your cabin. Please try not to cover them in ice. Mizuki-kun, how are the ones I gave you holding up?

My dad sent a few more bulbs, but he didn't label them. His letter said the nursery owners wanted to play a little game with me since they haven't seen me in awhile. My dad has the answers and told me I have until Christmas to give him my guesses. It's kind of amusing, but a good exercise. I kind of wish I could go home for the holidays, but my sister is going on a school trip to Niseko and my dad's been working too much a lot, so there's not much of a point if I don't get to see them.

I also got all the presents I'm giving out, so if you're going home for the holidays, come see me and I'll give it to you early.
kaminokusaki: (displeased)
Most of my visit home has revolved around tending to the garden, volunteering at the nursery with my dad, and helping my sister with her schoolwork. We did go to Tokyo the day after I got home. I'm going to have to borrow one of my dad's suitcases to bring it all back. Now is one of those times when I wish I was a wizard instead of a demigod. I'd be able to make the load lighter.

Unfortunately, my doctor's appointment has led to an extended stay while they poke and prod. Under normal circumstances, this level of paralysis wouldn't happen until the beginning of December. I wonder if Hades would accept a gift of creeping vines that my mom could then manipulate to choke him to death in his sleep. Regardless, dad has rebuffed their suggestions of surgery. Dad and I both know that it's not going to fix anything, but he's humored them long enough that I'll be released on Friday to "convalesce" (their words, not mine) until I come home next Wednesday.

I hope you've watered my plants according to their schedule, Niou. Oh, Ibu-kun, the grapevines should be ready for harvesting too if you wanted to make wine from them. Mizuki-kun's been looking over the strawberries, so you could probably make something from that too.

I talked to my dad about things and he thinks it would be a good idea to come home for a couple of weeks. Just to see if maybe my doctors there can do something. We both know it won't, but I imagine he feels a little better about the entire thing if he attempts to do something. On the plus side, I get to see my little sister.

In my absence, I humbly request that no one kill my plants. Shiraishi-kun, Mizuki-kun, Fuji-kun... if you would be so kind as to look over the outdoor plants, I would be very appreciative. Niou, I trust you to take care of the ones in my cabin since I assume you'll stay there while I'm gone to keep the bed warm for my return. I will miss you and your warmth.


Oshitari Yuushi, you will come to my cabin some time this evening. I have to talk to you.
