grandma & grandpa’s

mogumogu_052717.jpgAfter a day and half in Osaka, my mom and I headed down to Kagawa to see my grandparents and aunt. Unfortunately, my grandma’s health and memory has been declining but it’s always good to spend time with family. We spent about 5 days helping clean up my grandparents house and hanging out with my grandma.

Although the countryside gets boring fast, one nice is thing is how the neighbors share food and there always seem to be lots of fruit. My grandma’s friend and neighbor gave a couple boxes full of hassaku, a tart slightly large clementine. And as a thank you for the chocolates from the US, the next door neighbor left a melon. My grandpa also grew strawberries which were tiny but still sweet.


大阪で1日半後、お母さんと親戚を会いに香川に向かいました。残念ながらおばあちゃんの調子と記憶は衰えているが、家族と時間を過ごすのはやっぱりいいですね。5日間家の片付けをしたり、おばあちゃんとお話をしました。

田舎はすぐ飽きるけど、一ついいのは近所が食べ物を分け合うことそしてなぜかフルーツが豊富。おばあちゃんの元散歩仲間ははっさくを数箱。隣人はアメリカからのチョコレートのお礼にメロン。そしておじいちゃんはイチゴを育てて小さかったけど甘かった。
