Little quiz for you;

        Today, would you allow me to give you a little quiz for you;
*Can you guess what it is in the picture below?*
This is what my husband made for me without telling me what he was making. When I found him working in his tiny carpentry space in our small warehouse, he said, "just nothing".  I thought it might be a fishing gadget or something.

You might get an idea from the thing in the picture. This is a 'scratcher' for your back which we can buy at 100-yen shop.  And we call it "mago-no-te, 孫の手".  Literally, it means "grandchild's hand". I wish I had one who does that for me p;)

*Here is the answer*
I had told him the night before that I wish I had something to put under my temple when sleep. I was using the top of the 'scratcher' but it is a bit high. He had cut half of the wooden globular shaped ball and put the round one together with superglue. It worked quite fine, putting it alternately after short while. Comfortable push if you wouldn't use it too long.  Can be called a health appliance:-)  I wish all of you are having sound sleep at night ; not like me who has trouble...  

Wishing All of You Sweet Dreams;

             Thank you very much for stopping by, visiting you soon; 
                             Linking this post to Our World Tuesday;

    That was indeed a clever solution by your dear husband for cutting that ball half off! He did a great job on it.

  16. How thoughtful and clever of your husband.

  17. I hope it is working -- I use a very small pillow, like a child's pillow and if I forget it and have to use a regular sized one I cannot sleep at all.

    Your husband is so sweet.

    Miyako, I hope you don't mind all my comments at once today -- I had some time to catch up with posts I've missed while traveling. I'm glad I was able to read them.
