When I took a bus to go a meeting at a sushi restaurant in downtown Seattle, there was a big marathon competition around downtown Seattle.

And the other side of road which my bus ran to downtown Seattle was closed for this Marathon all way long.

After I took off the bus, the road was shut down for the goal of marathon on the way to my working place.

So I had to walk another road to cross the road and it was so far from my working place.

When I tried to cross a road, a staff stopped me not to disturb the marathon.

So I walked the long more and I found a road without staffs to cross finally.

My working time to have a meeting at the sushi restaurant was 10:00 a.m. and I arrived at there just before 3 minutes to start the meeting.

Sometimes, a marathon competition happened around downtown Seattle in this year.

So I had to be careful the traffic condition not to be late for my working schedule...^^

I asked a woman who wore the marathons' wear how long you ran in this morning.

She told me to run half of full marathon, it was unbelievable to run so long for me.

But she looked so nice after she finished running a half of full marathon, anyway...

Last Sunday, I brought some piece of baked Mackerel from a sushi restaurant where I work every Sunday.

And I bought it in my lunch box but David didn't know which is up and down of my lunch box.

So my lunch box was upside down and the oil of Mackerel was spread my handkerchief almost.

I washed my handkerchief with soap well and I washed it in a washing machine with other clothes and towels.

After I dried all of our laundries in a dryer, I felt the smell of the Mackerel a little.

I was so surprised at the strong smell that I needed to wash it again to remove the Mackerel smell.

After I washed the towels with a washing machine, the smell of Mackerel became less than before.

But the smell was a little remain and I need to wash it again.

David loves to eat fresh wild mackerel and the oily part of it is an attractive point.

But the strong smell was not for towels at all.

Little by little, the smell of Mackerel became less than before.

So just I need to wait the time of disappearing of the smell of Mackerel later...><

A few days ago, I drank hot water after I boiled it.

I forgot that it was too hot and I split it out when I drank it.

I burnt inside of my mouth with the hot water and I felt a pain inside of my mouth after that.

Still today, I feel the pain inside of my mouth a little.

And when I eat something, I felt the pain inside of my mouth.

But day by day, the pain became less than before.

So just I need to wait a recovery of my mouth, anyway...

I was careless when I drank hot water without thinking.

So I need to be more careful than before not to burn my mouth anymore...><

Yesterday, David and I went to take a sauna at a fitness club together before our dinner time.

And after our sauna time, we went back to home by David's driving as usual as we do.

On the way back to home, David stopped a round corner and he found some ducks walking on the road.

And these ducks used crossroad to cross the road, and they were so lovely!!

David really loved to watching these ducks to cross the road like human beings do.

And a driver stopped on the other side of road to wait these ducks crossing the crossroad, and he laughed at that.

David and I laughed at these lovely ducks so hard together that we had nice feeling each other.

Sometimes we can watch wild ducks around our living area and this was the first experience to watch them using crossroad.

Anyway, these ducks were so lovely that we never forget this wonderful timing to watch them yesterday.

Today, David told about these ducks again and we could laugh so hard together again...^^

Yesterday morning, I tried to clean up my eye glasses in a bus when I went to downtown Seattle to work.

And I found that my attachment of nose of eye glasses disappeared again.

I had no idea when and where the attachment dropped.

A few days ago, just I got new attachment of nose of them at COSTCO and the one went somewhere again.

But I had to put my eye glasses on to work, anyway.

The balance of my eye glasses was not good enough but I finished working somehow.

And no one said to my attachment of nose of my eye glasses, so no one didn't care of it at all.

After my work, I asked David to get the attachment at COSTCO again and I could get it again.

I don't know why the attachment dropped suddenly again and again, but I hope that it will not drop again, NEVER...^^

Girl's festival
On 3rd of March, it is called "Hinamatsuri" day to celebrate girls' growth in Japan.

When I was a child, my Mom decorated big "Hinamatsuri DOLLS" at home for her 3 daughters.

And also she cooked special meals for us as "Hinamatsuri" feast.

After "Hinamatsuri" is over, she needed to clean up all many dolls as soon as possible.

Because, to be late of cleaning "Hinamatsuri" dolls is thought to be late for her daughter's marriage.

Including me, our sisters and I was married as late as usual marriage age.

But in the end, all of us got married finally and I guess that Mom felt relived about our marriage, anyway.

I am in Seattle so Mom must worry about me a lot.

But she never talk about her worry about me but I know her worry about me.

So I just want Mom to feel O.K. about me even I cannot come back to her home so often.

I send some message via e-mail to let her know that David and I are O.K. with love and smile in Seattle sometimes.

I wish that Mom doesn't need to worry about all her daughters too much to enjoy her own life with my DAD as long as possible.

So someday, David and I will visit my parents home, so I want Mom to feel relieved that we are so happy to be together, anyway...^^

Have a wonderful "Hinamatsuri" day in Japan!!

Tomorrow is the final day of winter according to the Japanese luna calendar in Japan.

And on 4th of February means the begging of spring season.

We have a ceremony to throw away roasted soy beans around each home tomorrow.

To throw away roasted beans means to exorcise bad luck and invite good fortune,

And when we throw away roasted soy beans , we say"Bad luck(Devils, Goblins) OUT! and Food fortune(Happiness) IN!" to outside and inside of our home.

Soy beans has a meaning to "exorcise" "Bad luck" and it is believed that "ONI"come when the seasons change in Japan.
("ONI" is a devil-like creature from Japanese folklore and it is imaginary creature.)

Throwing roasted soy beans is a ritual to exorcise these "ONI", and I enjoyed this ceremony at home when I was a child.

Anyway, I can feel that spring is coming day by day and the daytime became longer little by little.

I hope that we will welcome the begging of spring after long winter of so many rainy days in SEATTLE.

I really love spring season in a year.

I hope that you will enjoy your begging of the spring season with love and smile!!^^

Before holiday
Next Monday is holiday of birthday of Martin Luther King. Jr., so it will be continual 3 days holidays from today to next Monday.

So most people enjoy having nice time with family or friends together.

But for us, it is not holiday at all, because David works today, tomorrow and the holiday of next Monday, too.

So we will enjoy David's holidays after next Monday.

I don't know Martin Luther King. Jr. at all, so I don't know why next Monday will be holiday in the U.S.A.

But in Seattle, many people can feel relaxation with 3 days holidays from today.

I am not the person to celebrate special holidays in a year at all.

Because for me, every day is very holy and special day to cherish in my life.

So I want to enjoy each day which is Blessed by GOD and I just enjoy each day with gratitude.

I feel so much gratitude for David and his love for me every single day and I am so lucky to be with him.

I hope that most American can enjoy this 3 days holidays as much as possible.

And I want David to enjoy our marriage life every day with smile and love forever and ever.^^

Somthing wrong
Last night, I shut down David's computer as usual as I do before, and a message about "UPLOAD" appeared on the screen.

So just I let it happen naturally and I closed the window.

And today, I tried to start up his computer but the normal screen didn't appear.

After I put on some number to open the screen, the black screen appeared and I couldn't change it at all anyhow.

I tried to open the screen sometimes but it didn't work at all, so I gave up to using it today,

So I went to a library after YOGA class of a fitness club and I could use public computer for a while.

Sometimes, David's computer happened unusual but I don't mind it so much.

Because sometimes the computer wants to take a rest like a human being, so just I just need to wait to open it again...^^

Third stem!
I found third stem of organic avocado plant in a container.

Two weeks ago, I found second new stem of avocado plant and it started to grow day by day.

So I guess that this avocado plant are growing so well in this container.

I don't know how big this avocado plant will grow at home, because this is the first experience to grow it up.

I need to be careful to watch this avocado's growth every day.

And I really take care of this avocado plant with sunshine and water.

I hope that this avocado plant will grow well from now on with my tender care...^^^
