Yesterday, David and I saw his friend who is in a hospital.
His friend felt something wired feeling of his body and he went to the hospital by himself last Thursday.
And his doctor said to him that he needed to be in a hospital right now then.
So he stayed at the hospital (ER) to have some medicines and to check his whole body.
He was lucky to realize his strange feeling of his body by myself but David and I was worried about his body condition so much.
So after David's work, we went to see him to check his condition.
We talked to him for a while and we could meet his partner for the first time at the hospital, because she was beside of David's friend.
We felt relieved to know David's friend's condition with his partner to support him right now.
But his body needs to take a rest more and we left the hospital together.
David's friend is younger than David but his body condition looks not good yet.
I hope that he will recover day by day and his body condition will get well before Thanksgiving holiday on this Thursday.
To live healthy condition needs to care for what we eat every day, because each meal make our whole body.
So daily healthy diet will can keep our healthy body live longer, I believe.
I hope that David's friend will change his eating style not to have any medication by his own pace.
Because I really like his friend and he has great heart with generosity and kindness for us always, so I want him live longer as long as possible.
I wish that David and I will see his friend and his partner after he can get out of the hospital someday...^^
Today I went to have a YOGA class on Sunday for the first time at a fitness club.
From last week, I started to take part in some Yoga class at this fitness club and I tried to have a Yoga class of different teachers.
And today is the 4th teacher of Yoga class and she was talking too much for me to keep my mind & body in peace during Yoga.
She looks very young with cheerful energy and there were no space in a big room.
Her Yoga style was typical American Yoga style like an exercise and it was too many postures in an hour of Yoga class for me.
Some students tried to keep her pace and I heard of many people's tough breathing during Yoga class.
I think that Yoga is essential to keep each breath naturally with comfortable feeling but her Yoga can not give us relaxing breath at all.
But most people looked enjoying her Yoga class, so just I understood that this is American Yoga.
I had some Yoga class from last week so my body felt a little pain at some body's area.
So just I need to be careful not to make my body doing too hard to hurt my body.
I don't need to keep up with American Yoga exercise at all.
So I want to try my own pace with peaceful breath and comfortable feeling at any Yoga classed in this fitness club, anyway.
I learned a lot of American Yoga these days and it was fun for me to experience Yoga exercise to focus on my Yoga style.^^
Today, I went to a fitness club to have a YOGA class from noon.
This is 3rd of Yoga class of this fitness club and the teacher was different from previous 2 Yoga classes.
So just I wanted to check how kind of Yoga class today.
Today, the students were less than before and they were about 15 people.
At the begging of today's Yoga class, it looked gentle but in the middle, it became harder little by little.
I am YOGA teacher so I felt that YOGA need to make our body and mind relax after each Yoga posture.
But most American Yoga class, most Yoga teacher offer many kinds of postures one by one without relax time.
Yoga is not only making some typical posture.
To make our body keep a posture and then relax needs to let our body feel relax by using our body's automatic nerve system naturally.
So too much keep doing Yoga posture cannot give our body and mind relaxation enough but only fatigue after some exercises.
In the U.S.A., YOGA is misunderstood as a kind of exercises but I don't think so at all.
But some kinds of YOGA class can give me nice lesson how to guide YOGA to my students from now on, so I can enjoy any kinds of Yoga classes these days.
This fitness club is free for David and me, because David's working company gave this free member card for us.
So just I want to enjoy having Yoga class my my own pace as much as possible.^^
Today, I went to have a YOGA class at a Fitness club by myself.
A few days ago, David and I went to the same Fitness club to have a YOGA class together for the first time.
Today's teacher was different from the previous lesson, so I wonder how YOGA class today is.
Today's Yoga class was full of classroom and there were so many ladies there.
And I really liked to have this YOGA class because it was gentle to make my body & mind relaxed more than before.
After the YOGA class, I had an organic apple, a pear and some dried figs at cafe corner by myself.
Before YOGA, I don't want to eat anything to keep my stomach empty.
So all great organic fruits could give my body satisfaction enough.
Only 1 hour of YOGA class let me feel so short that I wanted to do YOGA more.
But the classroom would have another class after YOGA, so all schedule of YOGA was for only 1 hour unfortunately.
Anyway to take a walk to the fitness club is only 20 minutes and I really enjoy on the way to there by walk.
Especially it is nice weather with sunshine & blue sky, so I am so glad to enjoy the YOGA class by myself today...^^
Last night, I made "MONJYA-YAKI" (Japanese savoury pancake with various fillings, thinner than Okonomiyaki) by my original recipe for our dinner.
It is very easy to make and fun for our dinner time.
I chopped organic onion, cabbage, carrot and MOCHI (Japanese sticky rice cake) and I added Japanese base of soup and chia seed in a bowl.
Also, I put on Konbu (dried seaweed powder), brown rice powder and Japanese arrowroot powder and mixed all of ingredients well.
I put it onto a pan and baked it in a oven for a while.
And I put on my original source (soy source, ginger, garlic, sesame oil) as a seasoning with seaweed powder.
My original Monjya-yaki is very easy to eat it by small spatula little by little.
Mochi (Japanese sticky rice cake) is very sticky and it is easy to be firm when it becomes cold.
So after I baked Monjya-yaki, we need to eat as soon as possible while it is hot.
Anyway, David really loves to eat it with me and we really love to eat Monjya-yaki together.
So I will make it for us again soon...it is easy and simple to make but it is so fun for us to eat together. ^^
Yesterday, I was stolen my raincoat at a fitness club unfortunately.
And it was almost new and I really need to buy another one to spend Seattle winter with lots of rain.
So today, I asked David to take me outlet shopping mole to get my new raincoat.
It was less than 30 minutes from our home, so it is easy to go shopping.
David and I went to a outdoor shop to get my new raincoat and I wanted to buy David's one, too.
Because they were very cheaper than I thought and I wanted to express my love & gratitude for Davids' love.
We found nice new raincoat each other and we bought another new outfits, too.
Also we got new caps and all of my shopping was done cheaper than my budget.
So I went to a shoe shop to get my walking shoes because my old one became old.
I tried to put on some shoes and I finally got my favorite one at nice price.
Anyway, I could get nice new items today and we really enjoyed shopping together.
My happenings which my staffs were stolen at a fitness club was terrible accident but it gave us an opportunity to buy new items today.
All our new items will make our life happy to spend winter season in this year, for sure!!^^
David got our free member card of big fitness club from his working company last summer.
A few days ago, I walked there by myself to get a schedule of YOGA class at nearest fitness club in our neighborhood.
Today, we decided to go there for the first time together.
And we took part in a YOGA class together in this morning.
It was only 1 hour class and 20 people were there.
The YOGA class was gentle and easy for me and we really enjoyed doing YOGA together.
David really wanted to swim and have a jacuzzi and we went to each rocker room.
But all rocker room have no key so I wanted to keep my valuables to David's car.
So I waited in front of the glass of the jacuzzi bath tab and I asked him to give his car key by my silent gesture.
And he gave me his car key and I put my valuables into his car and I left my clothes in my bag in a rocker.
I wanted to enjoy jacuzzi with David so I went to the same rocker but all my staffs gone!!!
Unbelievable, someone stole my staffs in a few minutes while I left!!
Some people use rockers by their own key but some people left their staffs without keys.
So I checked all empty rockers one by one for 3 times.
But I couldn't find all my staffs, so I gave up to find it and I went to David in a jagguzzi to talk about my happening.
I wanted him to enjoy jaguzzi time but my happening destroyed, so I am very sorry for him.
We reported my happening to a manager of the fitness club and just I pray to appear my all staffs.
But David told me that this is not JAPAN but America, so all my staffs would not appear unfortunately.
I almost gave up to see all my staffs because we did nothing wrong, it looked like an unfortunate accident.
So I don't blame the fitness club's security anymore and I change my mind that my staffs went to someone who really needs like a donation.
We don't think about my unfortunate happening anymore because it waste of our precious life time.
Usually I ate one meal a day.
It is dinner to eat my meal a day, so I cook for us carefully as precious nutrition to make our body and mind keep healthy condition with love.
I eat some organic fruits as my lunch meal.
But in the morning, I only drink hot water to purify my body.
I don't feel any appetite in the morning and it became my routine & habit to eat one meal a day.
So I cook our dinner with love and I want to enjoy it to give nice nutrition for us every single day.
Today is David's Friday, it means that today is the day before his holiday after 5 days working.
So I cook special curry plate for our dinner like Indian style.
I hope that he will enjoy it with me.
We won't use any chopsticks to eat it tonight, because we use only our right hand like India people do.
We sometime enjoy eating curry by each right hand only as a fun for us.
Anyway, to cook for our daily dinner is my expression of love.
So I want to cherish my cooking time as much as possible with my idea every day.^^
Cooking is not just housework for me, but special time to express my love for David.
Last night before our sleeping time, my elder sister's started her wedding ceremony in Japan.
I was thinking about her before sleeping and I asked my younger sister's husband to take her picture to send me later.
And I checked my mobile phone and some pictures were sent to it.
David and I were so happy to check her photo with her husband.
We wanted to participate in her wedding ceremony but we decided not to go there.
We need to save our limited money to move next summer so I sent my message for my sister to read at her wedding ceremony through Dad.
I hope that my elder sister and her husband could enjoy my message, anyway.
My elder sister's wedding costume was typical Japanese style and it was so beautiful to make her smile bright.
Next week, they are going to enjoy honeymoon.
David and I just wish her happy marriage life with love and smile.
I am so thankful for my younger sister's husband to take some photos for us A LOT.
And his sons' growth was so great that David and I really enjoy those photos with smile...^^
These days, organic sweet potatoes started to sell at many supermarket.
David really love to eat organic sweet potato and I baked it for his lunch every day.
It is Japanese style "YAKI IMO" (baked sweet potato) and it takes some time to bake it in a oven.
After I baked organic sweet potato, it became so sweet and creamy texture with natural sweetness itself.
Today, I made sweet potato soup for David's dinner for the first time.
I used organic onion, celery and tomato with sweet potato to make my original soup.
And I put on organic garlic, onion, dried basil leaves, cayenne pepper, my handmade Miso (fermented soy beans paste) and black pepper as seasonings into a pan.
It became nice sweet and a little spicy soup and I hope that David will like the taste.
David likes my original soup so much, so I want to keep cooking it for him every day.
This week and next week, he will be busy of work for Thanksgiving holidays, so I want to support him by my cooking with love from inside of his body.^^
After my birthday trip in Vancouver, Canada, I wrote some comments with our photos on Facebook.
And then, many friends post "GOOD" for it and it became more than 50.
Last my update on Facebook was Easter day on 16th, April.
And then, I didn't write anything about my life on Facebook at all.
I was tired to check someone's life on Facebook and I was not interested in it for last 7 months.
Maybe, my mind was a little different from my usual heart for last months.
And little by little, my heart became something unusual covered with something in my mind.
At that time, I didn't realize how much I was different myself than usual.
But after I became much better feeling after my birthday, I can explain my feeling of past after I changed inside of myself.
So now I felt much better feeling after my birthday trip.
Anyway I want to enjoy my life with David more and better than before.
Only about 40 days in this year remain, so I want to cherish each day to connect with new year soon...
I hope that you enjoy your days of the rest of 2017 with smile & Blessing.^^
Yesterday, I cooked organic chestnuts brown rice by a pan.
Usually I baked organic brown rice by rice cooker.
But I used my rice cooker to make enzyme rice so I used a pan to cook chestnuts rice yesterday.
I soaked organic brown rice with some water for 1 night after I washed it.
And I put organic ginger powder, salt, soy source as seasonings in a pan.
Also I put organic chestnuts and raw cash nuts into a pan and I started to bake it.
Sometimes I added some water into a pan and it became nice looking rice.
David really loved to eat my chestnuts brown rice as his dinner and I am so happy to know his happy smile when he ate it.
Just a little bit, I felt my chestnuts rice was less salty, so I added "Yukari" (dried Shiso flakes) to it.
And then it became better taste and we really enjoy eating it together.
To cook raw chestnut is so much burden and hard, but I used baked organic chestnuts for my cooking.
So it is very easy for me to cook my chestnuts rice.
David took a picture his dinner last night because all my dishes was very delicious as he said.
And I am very proud of myself a little and we felt so happy to enjoy our dinner together with smile.^^
Today I woke up 6 a.m. in this morning and I slept 10 hours.
Last night, David and I started to sleep around 8 p.m. because our body have a little fatigue of Vancouver trip still last night,
After we finish eating our dinner, David felt sleepy.
Before dinner, he wanted to watch a movie but we couldn't have enough energy last night.
But deep and enough sleeping time gave us nice energy in this morning, so we started our new day with nice feeling body and mind each other.
I cooked our special dinner to express my gratitude for David and I hope that we will enjoy it later.
To communicate each other more can let us understand each other better, we can feel.
After my birthday trip in Vancouver, we can feel positive feeling with deep love for our marriage life and we are so happy together.^^
Only less 2 month remain in this year, it is unbelievable!!
So I want to cherish our daily life each day with love and gratitude for our present life.^^
Last night, our arrival time of train from Vancouver to our hometown was around 9:00 p.m. if it was on scheduled.
But in the middle of on way back to home, a track stuck on the railway road by accident.
So we had to wait until the track was removed for 1 hour and we came back to home around 11:00 p.m. at last.
We really felt tired and we started to sleep around midnight.
But in this morning, David woke up at around 6:00 a.m. and he couldn't sleep again even he felt tired still.
Because he usually wakes up around 4:00 a.m. every morning and his body gets to used to waking up early.
I tried to sleep again but I couldn't, so I started to cook for our dinner.
David and I felt a little fatigue still today but we could sleep deeply last night.
Our trip in Vancouver was so much fun but it gave us a little fatigue.
David has holiday today and tomorrow, so he can have enough time to remove his fatigue.
I want to cook for us to remove our fatigue from inside of our body by my meal as much as possible!...^^
Yesterday, we came to Vancouver in Canada to enjoy my birthday trip.
And we had a nice time together so much and we started to enjoy today until our departure time of our train to go back to home today.
I send a message to David's friend who lives in Vancouver a few days ago suddenly.
And I asked him to surprise him to see us at an organic cafe in this morning.
He said to me "O.K.!" and he came to see us and David looked really happy to see him.
My secret surprise to David was completed successfully and his friend brought us by his car to famous Downtown Vancouer area spontaneously.
David and I could enjoy with him and we are so thankful for his great guide with wonderful generosity and kind heart.
David and I felt so much great friendship of him to us and we talked a lot each other.
I met him at Edmonds 4 years ago with his wife for the first time.
So this is the second time to see him and I could get to know him much better today than before.
My surprise for David became nice return gift and I am so happy to watch his happy smile.
And I really appreciate with his great kindness to us and we really want to see us again soon.
Anyway, David and I could have so wonderful time in Vancouver that we can refresh our mind & heart for our marriage life.
To make ourselves go away from daily life can let us understand each other and this trip was so deep meaning to us each other.^^
