My Home

My office
My front room
The yard that I share with the landlord
When I get out of bed, Chico gets on my pillow and sleeps longer
I have two rooms plus a bathroom. No kitchen but I have a frig and different ways to cook things. I wash my dishes in the bathroom sink. I have been living here for almost five years. It is my home now. Humble but adequate. More than adequate. It is perfect for me and my lifestyle. Besides, Chico belongs to my landlord, not me. If I move, I can't take him with me. I don't expect to be moving anytime soon. Love trumps everything else. Chico is here. I am here.


  1. Your place looks great...very comfortable and I would imagine that you don't have to pay an arm and a leg for it. Wonderful pics on your last blog. I know that you are happy to be back.

  2. Hi Michael, Thank you. I am happy here. It has taken me a long time to make it comfortable here. I am very happy. Patricia

  3. Hi Patricia

    Glad you made it home safe and sound
    I also got a chuckle out of your sleep mate

    I am thrilled to get your updates on the crime situation ........I can now start to look forward to our visit in Feb .....10 weeks and counting ...yipee !!!!!!!!!
    I hope you have a Very Merry Xmas


  4. hi C. Thank you for the compliment. I appreciate that. See you in a couple of months. Merry Christmas to you too. P

  5. your casita looks very cozy and inviting! what a cute little sleeping partner-yes, chico is such a cutie! i always enjoy seeing pictures of him.

    i'm sure you are very happy to be back home for many reasons, one of them being the weather. we are supposed to start getting temps in the 30s tonight but they've been predicting it for some time and it has yet to happen. the nice thing is that even when it has been cold, it is usually sunny-so different from the pnw.

    i always enjoy your e-mails and am sorry i don't always get around to answering them all. i keep trying to get better but i get so many that i just don't get around to all of them. thanks for not giving up on me. i'm glad you are enjoying my nfn.

    have a great weekend!


  6. Hi Teresa, Thank you for writing. Never feel badly about not writing back to me. I know you are busy. I just enjoy getting your e mails and hearing all about living in Japan. P

  7. You have beautiful artwork, and a cozy casita! The yard area looks inviting too. Of course, it's always nice to see Chico. :)
