Short life of tulips
In this morning, I tried to change some water in a vase of tulips.

But yesterday, it was too cold to keep tulips live any longer.

I touched these tulips and the petals of them fell down suddenly.

The cold temperature was not good for these tulips and their lives looked over.

These tulips was a gift from my king neighbor so I wanted them to keep as long as possible.

But the life of tulips is not long enough for me to enjoy but I gave up most of them to keep in a vase anymore.

So only a few yellow tulips were still alive and I cut these stems of tulips to change into smaller vase than before.

I decorate the small vase on the table and they are so lovely.

I really love to watch all tulips every day and I could feel the spring atmosphere for a while.

The weather forecast says that this weekend will snow again and it will be much colder than before.

I hope that spring will come to us day by day...

I am very looking forward to welcoming spring soon.

Anyway, I am so thankful for my dear neighbor who gave me the vase of these tulips that I could enjoy their lives with David every day.^^

Lives of tulips are very short but they made us delightful and happy to watch them these days with lovely atmosphere.

The beggining of 2018
Happy New Year of 2018!

David and I woke up at 7:30 a.m to go Japanese shrine to pray for New Year like last year.

The shrine opened the gate at 9:30 a.m., and many people will visit there in the afternoon, so we wanted to go there early.

We arrived at there around 10:00 a.m. and there were so many people there already.

We prayed there and walked inside of the shrine with fun.

Last year, it was too cold with snow here and there, but it was nice weather with blue sky and sunshine today.

We really enjoyed visiting there to start our new year today.

And we went to Mulkito beach to take a walk on the beach side.

We shared with each feeling and thinking about our new year and we felt wonderful feeling each other.

To begin this year after praying at Japanese shrine can let us feel so pure and clear inside of each heart.

This is the third visit of new year to this shrine and David looked so happy to pray there.

How is your new beginning of this year??

How do your want to start your 2018 with hope and positive feeling??

We will enjoy our New Year's feast together at home and I will cook Japanese style soup with organic rice cake (Mochi), it is called "Zouni" in Japanese.

So we will enjoy our dinner together with smile and love, for sure!

I hope that your New Year start with hopeful mind and positive thought inside of your heart peacefully...^^

Smart consumer
Last month, I went to an outlet mall with David to get my rain wear.

I was stolen my rain wear at a rocker room in a fitness club, so we went to get a new one.

When I bought some our nice clothes at our favorite outdoor shop in the outlet mall, I got 2 coupons to use at next shopping time in this month.

It was 30 dollars gift card and 20 dollars coupon ticket.

David and I went to the same store to use the gift card and coupon ticket but I need to spend 100 dollars purchase to use them,

So I got nice clothes for us and I tried to pay more than 100 dollars at least.

And I showed the gift card and coupon ticket to the shop staff, he used both of them to my purchase.

I thought that I couldn't use both of them to my purchase but I could.

So I paid about 60 dollars only to our new clothes today.

Already I got some nice discount price of our new clothes and in addition to the cheaper price, I could get more discount to pay.

David and I are so happy that we could buy so nice clothes at cheaper prices today.

Normal price is not attractive for me at all, so I really love to buy the lowest price after nice discount for my shopping always.

Anyway, we can handle this cold winter season with nice new clothes, so we are very very happy to get them today!^^

fresh squid
A few days ago, David went to a car repair shop to check his tire and breaks of his car.

The car repair shop is running by his fiend and David really likes him.

He came back to home after car check, he had a bag of fresh squids.

The owner of car repair shop went to fish squid early morning and he got too many fresh squids to eat all of them with family.

So he gave David some squids as a friend's gift.

I was so surprised at the fresh squids that his bag was black by squids' ink, so I thought it was a bag of garbage.

Anyway he looked so happy that he could get fresh squids from his friend fortunately.

Usually we eat organic vegetables but sometimes David wants to eat fish and sea food as his fun of eating.

So I cut some of squids to make "Ika-soumen" (fresh squid Sashimi) for David to eat as raw.

David enjoyed eating fresh squids so much and I was so happy to see his happy smile.

The rest of squids, I will arrange to let David enjoy it later by my idea anyhow...^^

Shoppong mode
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!!^^

Rain again...
Today, it is cold temperature with clouds in the sky.

And then, the sky became dark even in the morning.

The gray sky became darker than morning in the afternoon.

David said to me that it would rain today.

And then, it started to rain actually.

The temperature is still so cold that I started to put on warm cloth finally.

Nice weather with sunshine is over and the rainy season has come again.

I hope that the temperature will not be so down soon...

Mistery sock
Last winter, I cleaned my pair of socks in our laundry machine as usual.

And then, I put all laundry into our dryer.

After that, I started to hold all of laundry but I couldn't find my sock.

For sure, I put my pair of socks in a laundry machine but one of them gone somewhere.

Sometimes the missing clothes during cleaning came out from somewhere naturally.

So I just gave up to find it and I just waited for it for some months.

But still now, the sock couldn't appear.

So I am thinking whether I should throw away my sock and give up another one...><

Sudden alarm
Last night, the fire alarm started to ring suddenly in the middle of the night.

It was around 23:30 p.m, and it made us wake up with huge sound.

We didn't use any heat at the time, so the fire alarm was mistaken.

But it kept ringing for a while, so David tried to stop it.

Somehow, he made the alarm stop but the sound was so huge.

I felt so sorry for our neighborhoods to let them hear the noise.

David woke up clearly with the huge noise, so he couldn't to start sleep again for a while.

He had to wake up at 3:30 a.m in this morning to work, so I felt so sorry for him.

Anyway, the mistaken fire alarm made us feel so frustrated.

I hope that it will not happen again in the middle of night, never!!><

Hard lime
Last week, we bought a bag of organic limes at a supermarket.

And today, I squeezed all of them to put out of their juice by my hands.

But most of their skins became so hard that cutting limes were very tough work.

The skin of organic lime became like a stone but inside of the lime was fresh.

I squeezed all of organic limes and put into 2 ice cube containers to freeze in our refrigerator.

I want to use organic lime juice for my cooking and I want to keep it fresh after squeezing.

And after all lime juice frozen, I can use it one by one for my cooking when I want to use it.

This is very convenient way to use organic limes for me.

Anyway, the hard skin of limes were so difficult to handle today...><

Organic apple
Today, I asked David to buy a bag of organic apples.

David & I really love to eat organic FUJI apples every day.

But I checked apples in a bag which he bought it and it looked different from FUJI apples.

The skin and color looked different from FUJI apples and I checked the receipt.

It says, "Organic GALA apples."

David said that he picked this bag of apples were in the cage of FUJI.

So we guessed that a customer put it into different cage unfortunately.

David went to return it at the supermarket again to get a bag of FUJI apples.

I am so thankful his kindness and we can keep eating our favorite organic FUJI apple from tomorrow, too!^^
