How have you been? The start of the rainy season was announced in Japan except the northern Hokkaido island a few days ago.
Finally, tonight, I could be back to update this blog. :)
Over four and a half months were already passed since I published the last one. I've been very busy from this February to the middle of this month for taking care of my parent and our aged cat, house keeping and my work.
THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH for all your lovely comments here, by 'e', 'Flickr' and 'snail' mails for my family members and me.
And I'm VERY SORRY and BIG THANK YOU to the 5 persons left your messages here. I'm really happy if you are able to allow my rude manner.

*I published all your gentle comments this evening in JST that the system held to wait for my approvals. Actually I could read them this afternoon, and those touched me off to send my message on this blog. Thanks a lot! I want to say thank you to visit all your blogs in a few days.
While this term, many things I had to do forced me to take less 3 hrs. for my sleep time every day. Fortunately I'm alive and I need 'wrinkle treatment'. Ha! But this is the truth, because there were days I came to weak a little in mental and physical condition. :'-(
So I couldn't make time for checking any other blogs of friends, paper-crafters, and needle workers - mine wasn't exceptional. (About a month ago, I just only visited 'my Flickr home' once - only about 5 min., I remember. I hoped to look around all your beautiful works for taking my time, when I accessed there. But I had to go back to work soon, since I received the important appointment suddenly.)
My father's operation was successed on surgical and medical diagnosis, but he has been saying that he feels 'not good'. His subjective symptom worries me a lot. I sometimes can't find any words to cheer him up ...
(But today I was so happy! We could celebrate his Father's day!
There's no photo of today's family party, because I couldn't have got my family members' permissions for publishing it on the web. Sorry!)
And our family cat, Gray came to be serious by senility a week before my father's operation in this February. But the miracle was occurerd before taking a sad decision 'euthanasia', because she began to suffer. (She suddenly began to eat, despite the fact that she didn't eat at all while 4 days and became very weak.)
Speaking of my work, while I was in MIA here, I made 2 designs for the registered trademarks, worked for 2 films (the one was already finished and the other will be finished in this October or November.), and for several web sites that I've been managing.
I'm not a workaholic. But I love to create. So the next one is now under negotiation.
And now, I take a little break and enjoy looking at the live films of FIFA World Cup, South Africa every day. But I don't suffer from jet lag. Love to see wonderful games. ;)
I'm going to share you only one card in a few days which I made about a week ago. And I want to make some during my summer vacation.
Thank you for reading! :) And sorry for my poor sentences. Maybe there are many mistakes, because I rushed to type and I forget English in my MIA. :(
Have a beautiful weekend and the next week!
