I have just finished preparations for tonight's party. I invited Sato-san, Takahashi-san, and Ito-san. Takahashi-san said he is definitely coming, but Sato-san said he isn't sure if he can come or not. Since Ito-san and Takahashi-san are both bringing friends, there will probably be a lot of people there. I expect that this party will be a lot of fun.
I found my sister at the station. She had left home without her umbrella. My mom asked me to bring the umbrella to her, so I left at once. While it is raining, I am always happy. The rain had a refreshing smell. Grandmother used to say that when it rains here, it falls like tears of the gods. I didn't understand what she meant before, but now I think I understand. From January to June, the rain doesn't stop.
