After few days I returned from Boston, I got a phone call from my mom and she told me that she fell and could not walk. She asked me to come back to Japan but I was coughing. After I got over my cold, I visited my mom in Japan again.

She could only walk in her house, she needed lots of help. I did grocery shopping, garbage clean up, cooking for her breakfast & dinner, did some errands too.

This is a pumpkin my mom’s friend grew in her garden, very sweet and tender, good for pumpkin soup.
