Christmas was great even though most of the food was terrible. The desserts were fantastic, so thank you Mizuki and the rest of the Demeter cabin. New Year's Eve wasn't too bad either. I think I expected something to happen. Like a cabin catching fire or Tooyama breaking through a cabin roof. I don't know. It just felt a little underwhelming.

My sister told me all about her New Year's Eve date with Niou's brother when we had a Facebook chat the other night. Everything in excruciating detail. I should have recorded it and made you listen to it, Niou. It was absolutely dreadful.

Shiraishi, how do you feel about solar panels on the greenhouse roof? Only in certain areas, so the plants still receive all the sun they need.

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.

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.

I hate this stupid season. I don't care if the food is good. I really miss the whole not-feeling-weak thing.

Winter vegetables have been planted. There's still some time left to plant for a early-December harvest, so if there's anything the Demeter cabin or me didn't plant, let us know. This year we have:

- Swiss chard
- Sugar snap peas
- Kale
- Cauliflower
- Cabbage (Napa, Red, Savoy, Hakusai)
- Pak choi
- Mustard (Komatsuna, Mizuna)
- Daikon
- Jagaimo
- Kabu
- Yam
- Gourds (squash, pumpkin)
- Karashina
- Adzuki beans (as requested by Zaizen)

Niou, are you feeling better?

Happy birthday, Kirihara.

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.

That was not the length of trip I had in mind. Barely an entire week. Stupid fury attack. On the plus side, I got to see my sister and spend a lot of time with my dad. I have a few bulbs of chocolate cosmos that I absolutely can't wait to plant. I was home a little over two weeks last time and nothing happened.

Anyway, I have souvenirs from my trip home, so if I got anything for you, come by my cabin sometime in the next week. Sooner, preferably because I have quite a number of large stuffed animals from Cosmo World that are taking up space on one of the spare beds that I normally use as art storage.

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.

I have a sibling that isn't my sister. That's all I have to say about that. I'd apologize if any of you lost your senses for a bit, but I'm not in the least bit sorry.

It took some time, but I managed to move all of the plants and my art supplies. After so long with no siblings, I kind of completely took over the cabin. He had a bed until I finished which is more than generous if I do say. On the plus side, I found a few sketchbooks that I thought I had lost, three sets of watercolors, and the sable hair brushes my sister got me a couple of years ago for my birthday. Since the acrylics are still drying, I'm going to play around with some techniques I've been reading about.

I can't believe Renji left. He's a jerk for not telling me in advance. I emailed Renji and totally reamed him for it. Truthfully, I think he's doing something stupid with that book I brought back for him and lake Mnemosyne. Fruitless questing.

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?

Happy birthday Kirihara-kun. I hope you don't mind that I didn't give you anything yesterday when I came back to camp. I figured doing it today would be better. There was also that surprise party that completely threw me off. We can spar whenever you'd like.

Sanada, Renji, Niou - I have things for you. Come by later.

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.
