Totoro's bed

Today I made Totoro's bed.
It is orderd from Haruki,my son.
I made it which was near to his plan.
I reappeared about a ladder and a top of the details.

He seemed to be satisfied.
He played with his favorite dolls , 'Totoro and Sheep' , at once.

Painting log wall

Today I painted my house's log wall.
So, I discoverd cecada!
May be it has just hatched,because he didn't readily fly.

Painting log wall process

1. Drop a dirt of a wall with a dustcloth and a scrubbing brush.


I become full of paint, and a hand and a face, clothes are stained, too

It is very hard work, but very important to keep good condition of wall. So, I have to carry it out every about 3years.
