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...^^^

feeling bad
Yesterday, my period started just a little earlier than my schedule.

So first 3 days of my period are always heavy flow.

Yesterday, I felt a little heavy of my body because of my period after David came back to home.

So David worried about me so much that I started to lie down before he finished eating dinner.

I felt so sorry for him that I couldn't enjoy talking with him during his dinner.

But he wanted me to take a rest so I am so thankful his love and kindness.

David always shows his love every day and I really appreciate with him.

After I lied down for a while, I could feel much better than before.

So David looked relived to know my O.K. situation...^^

White hair
Today, after I took a shower in this morning, I checked my hair with the mirror in a bathroom.

And I found 2 white hairs in front of my head and I was a little shocked.

Sometimes, I found some white hair back and side of my head but front side was the first time to find white hairs.

I pulled them out of my head by myself.

My hair is mostly black and white hair was very rare to find.

And white hairs of my front head was first time so I was a little surprised.

I hope that no more white hair will appear in my head again...><

Black cherry
Yesterday, David brought some organic black cherry from his working place.

He told me that his colleague shared with many organic black cherry to all his colleagues at his working place.

And he brought some of them for me in his pocket.

The organic black cherry was warm because they were in David's pocket for a while.

So I put all of them into our refrigerator to make them cool.

And today, I tried to taste the organic black cherry.

The taste was a little different from normal Japanese cherry but it was very delicious.

I am very thankful for David's love and his colleague to share with organic black berries, anyway...^^

Yesterday, I was standing in the kitchen for a while.

And I felt dizzy and I couldn't keep standing.

I started to lie down for a while and I became feel better than before.

Yesterday, it was the heaviest day of my period and the dizziness is caused by my anemia, I guessed.

So I lied down for a while and my dizziness became less than before little by little.

I hope that my body condition will be better today than yesterday...

Today, it is so nice weather with sunshine and blue sky.

It looks like a summer and the weather is so wonderful today and David looks happy to enjoy today as his holiday...^^

First watermelon
Yesterday, David bought an organic watermelon for the first time in this year at a supermarket.

It is a little early to eat watermelon now, because it is cold weather these days.

But he found an organic watermelon at a supermarket and he wanted to buy for me.

I love to eat an organic watermelon but now it is too early to eat.

Watermelon has a character to make our body cool down so usually summer is the best season to eat watermelon.

But I appreciate with David's love to buy it for me and I said my gratitude for David.

Today I cut the watermelon but it was not enough read yet.

Maybe now is early season to harvest watermelons because this cold weather...

But it was sweet enough and it was nice taste.

I hope that weather will be warmer little more to eat an organic watermelon.

And I am looking forward to eating organic watermelons in this summer again...^^

New mobile phone
Today, I got a new mobile phone.

Because my old mobile phone's screen cracked so David bought me a new one.

I dropped my old mobile phone and a little crack appeared on the screen but I could use it for a while.

And I didn't mind the crack at all but in this morning, somehow another crack appeared again and it disturbed the view of screen.

David worries that this crack might hurt my finger when I use it so he went to mobile shop suddenly.

I didn't expect to get a new mobile phone but he bought it for me.

I felt so sorry that he used extra money to buy it for me.

And also he bought me screen cover and protection not to break my new mobile phone at the same time.

I am so thankful for his kindness and love and I want to cherish my new mobile phone more than before not to break again.><
