June Journals

I’m glad the weather has cooled off a little. What a surprise having mid-30 degree weather in May. Hopefully it is not a sign of things to come. June is here. Ducklings, hydrangea and early summer heat. Let’s enjoy these comfortable days with a notebook and pen.

Keeping with last month’s style. I will offer 8 topics to choose from.

  1. Describe a dessert that was memorable.
  2. Describe a meal that was terrible, but memorable.
  3. Which do you prefer plants or animals?
  4. Which do you prefer walking, cycling or swimming?
  5. If you could live anywhere in the world (including within Japan) for one month, where would you live?
  6. If you could meet anyone in the world (living) who would you like to meet?
  7. What movie do you want to see these days?
  8. What book do you want to read these days?
