jogging while seeing cherry blossoms

IMGP6224.JPG

Last friday I jogged from work to a stationon my way home after a long time.
I jogged for an hour and a half hour. An hour and a half hour is very good time
to jog comfortable. I wasn’t tired and it felt very nice.
Wherever I went, cherry blossoms were in the full bloom.
Couldn’t be happier when I jog under sucha a beautiful cherry blossoms.
When I jogged last year, I found a place where cherry blossoms were very beautiful.
So I stopped by there.
Many people drank with their friends or famiy. Under the cherry blossoms.
Some people ate something that they brought and some people cooked there like BBQ.
I emailed attached pictures my sister’s family and my husband many times and we
went drinking to Izakaya restaurant near my house.
My husband said “ I don’t wanna go home yet. Why don’t we go to Karaoke till in the
morning. “ But I had to go to work on the following day. So I couldn’t.
I went to bed right away since I was sleepy. My husband fell asleep right away even
though he said “ I don’t wanna go home yet. “
In Japan speaking of spring, it’s dawn. Night might be short in spring.

What a beautiful post, Aya! I love your picture of the cherry blossoms!
Here in Vienna it is warm, too, since two days, and everybody is outdoors, strolling through the city, having some coffee or drinks in a Schanigarten on the pavement of the streets, and enjoying spring.
Yesterday I also took pictures of cherry blossoms (while thinking of you) and I will post them tomorrow for Today's Flowers!
You are very good at jogging! Wow!
Have a nice weekend!

Ayamlin, thank for your kind thought. The devastating earthquake has been Monday early in the morning in Central Italy in the Abruzzo region: Piedmont region (where I live), which is in the North of Italy, is luckily safe. It's a terrible tragedy: 207 victims and 17.000 homeless, for the time being. The situation is extremely serious and there are still earth tremors.

It's true, Ayamlin: an earthquake is very hard for the Italian people, because the buildings are very ancient in the old parts of the cities and at the same time the new buildings have rather fragile structures.

Ayamlin, I'm glad you like the ancient buildings in the old parts of the italian cities. Italy has a splendid and remarkable artistic heritage indeed.
Have a nice evening!
