Obon Guests and a Trifle

Hello, Dear friends; how are you doing in your corner of the world♬♬♬ As I explained in my previous post, I had my visiting and having guests (and so on) Obon week.  Here are some guests on different days and trifle rambling about PC. 

* My cousin's family
One of my cousins has 2 lovely daughters, and here is the elder one who look alike a bit with her sister. Maybe some of my friends must have taken her with the younger one whom I posted having come to my house before. This cute elder sister also enjoyed my hubby's soba and playing saxophone with him.

Sweet Three Generations
I liked this three shot (haha, I wish you remember this Japanese English)  And can you see the Japanese lantern for obon I decorated in front of my family altar, which I wrote about in my previous post? 

*My husband's brother and his wife
They live about two hours drive away from our house. They visited our family grave (hubby's family line) located near our house. Our niece (one of their daughters) is expecting her first baby this Dec. we are really excited about this. It is always heartwarming to see hubby having enjoyable time chatting with his brother; this time about a year since the last time.

*My old PC broke down
A couple of days ago, my old pc broke down. Mainly I was using it in the hubby's hobby room to avoid turning on air-conditioning at two places. Is there anyone considering to have a new pc?  I checked Japanese T company's current model of windows7 with PC. I wondered how I should do...
       * I still have 3 years old vista to use...
       * Whether windows8 (tablet type) worth to wait or not...
                                               Or rather, if I can handle it or not p;) 
       * I wonder if the SSD (?) thing in the new model really good...
       * We have 10 % coupon for electric appliances.
                Well, I decided go for it!!! (window7 with SSD)

Thank you very much for stopping by and let me visit you from tomorrow. It is close to midnight of 18th now. Oh, I missed many posts of my friends!

  5. Miyako, your photos are wonderful. I wish I could do things like this. Your dinner table looks wonderful, pretty ladies smiling, too.

    My computer died completely on Tuesday (my birthday) and I lost over 1500 photos. I am so upset. But I bought a Sony Vaio and so far so good. I was up and running Tuesday night. Most of the photos are on my blog so I can still see them. Have a great week, my friend. xo

  6. Oh how wonderful to see all the visiting you have had. You must be tired now,lots of work to care for visitors.
    I think you make a good choice on th PC. You will have to let us know how you like it.
    Love & Hugs

    Thanks once again, for the very pleasant lunch!
    I'd like to see you again.

  13. Hello Miyako!
    It looks like you had a wonderful time with you family. I'm sure not many family gatherings include a saxophone duet - which is fantastic!

  14. This was a lovely post with wonderful pictures of your family visit. It looks like everyone enjoyed themselves. Sorry to hear about your PC but lucky you had the 10% coupon. Both of my computers are getting old and I am thinking of shopping for a new one but do not know what I want yet. Have a lovely week my dear bs. Love always.

  15. Dear Miyako,

    Looks like your Oban gathering was great, catching up with all your lovely relations and I enjoyed seeing your photos.
    Sorry about your PC and hope that you are enjoying your new computer.


  16. Your family is so beautiful. It is wonderful to see you all spending this special time enjoying one another.

    I hope you enjoy your new PC. I am hoping mine lasts much longer as I would not even know what to look for anymore. ;-)
