Today was a great day. I slept in until 6:30 and then stayed in bed (to stay warm) and studied for my Sunday school lesson for tomorrow. A long hot shower was next followed by my favourite breakfast, oatmeal with dried cranberries. Rick and I attended a temple sealing for a couple in our ward from Africa, Ivory Coast or Angola, I cannot remember. Rick’s mission President, Watanabe-san was the sealer so it was a double blessing because we got to see him. We can home and listened to Kristina’s fabulous rendition of Happy Birthday!!!! It was wonderful. Then we talked to Andrew and Leigh. We walked to Roppongi Hills for lunch at a Katsu restaurant. Katsu is battered and fried pork fillets and it is served with rice, miso soup, pickles, and shredded cabbage. Rick had his served in an boiling broth with the same side dishes. Then we walked down to the fabulous new Tokyo Art Centre. They took an older building and renovated it and put a great modern, curvy, glass facade on it. The museum has no permanent collection but has a couple of exhibitions going on all the time. We chose to go to one that showed art from Paris 1900-2005. It was good and had some really interesting Picasso’s. I have only seen his works that are dark colours. There were two portraits of women that were very light, white backgrounds with bright pastels. Still the style was very much what you would expect from Picasso. The exhibit was from the Pompidou Centre in Paris. I am excited to have such a great museum so close to us. It’s a 20 minute walk. In April a Monet exhibit is coming from the Musee de Orsay. Now we are home and I am baking my birthday cake. Tonight we venture out on three different trains to get to the stake center for the worldwide leadership training. So it has been a good day……. (Me and Krissy)
