We are looking forward to continuing to be part of Obon, Buddist Japanese, celebrated around the 15th in the eastern part of Japan. We are going to join a friend’s neighborhood Bon Odori celebration, dinner with another friend, and try to organize our home and vegetable garden. I’ve also got three new planters to fill with some type of low maintenance flowers. We may have a lot of fun at our local D2 this weekend, too.
