(Okay, so it isn’t my family, but they are somebody’s family, and we all spent time together tonight.)
We started with kakizome, as is standard winter break homework for students,…
..and ended with whatever this all was.
I dare say, it was one of the most delightful nights I’ve had in quite some time, and we weren’t even doing anything all too special.
I think it was so great, because we were all just being ourselves, and freely so, and also being comfortably the night owls that we all seem to be (this all started after dinner, and didn’t end until after midnight [at which point we merely went upstairs and did other messings around until close to one]).
And it was made even better by the fact that it was a night spent at home, and then even more so better because we didn’t use television in any way – we interacted with one another.
Also, I really do love kids… I just kind of hate annoying kids (which, as I’ve said before, usually means I dislike the parents, too, since there is typically a huge amount of overlap between the parents’ personalities and ways and those of the kids).
There was even a crying fit that happened tonight, and, due to awesome parenting and sisterly love, it wasn’t really any big deal, and was only any deal for a mere few minutes, if even that.
It was great.
And now I have a real version for my kakizome for this year, instead of the calligraphy marker I had to use the other night.
Yeah…, this has been a great night.
P.S. I got to se Fuji-San from rather close today(!!!), so yay!
