Me: He’s preparing for all the times of me dressing him up groovy in ridiculous outfits and go on adventures
Ichiro: card (bonus) “tea ceremony” / 8.23
#IchiroOlson / card x of series #io
Ichiro’s first tea ceremony lesson with the marvellous Matsuki-sensei. What a wonderful visit from a remarkable lady.￼
PS Besides traditional tea ceremony, she also teaches Ikebana flower arranging, and was former proprietor of a tempura shop￼.
She’s a prefectural treasure￼. #Okayama
Note: on his 2nd month “birthday” 4 friends from Ryoko’s tea ceremony group came to visit, bring gifts and meet Ichiro. I made special coffee ceremony.
