Cold April
Only 3 days remain in this April.

And this month is cold temperature every day, even spring has come already.

David says that this spring is very strange weather and spring has not coming yet.

I can feel the arrival of spring when I could watch beautiful flowers outside.

But the temperature is still cold in the morning and night and it let me feel still winter in this April.

I don't know why this spring is still so cold so I miss warmth of spring.

Sometimes sunshine can feel the warmth of spring but morning and night are still cold.

When the real spring will come in Seattle in this year??

I hope that real warmth of spring will arrive soon...^^

Deadline for tax
Tomorrow is the deadline for tax documents of 2016 so David was busy to finish it yesterday and today.

I have no idea how to send all his documents of tax by himself online but he tries to do his best without professional help usually.

I made my own tax documents when I was in Japan because I was a owner of individual company without shop, as a freelance.

So every year, I had to make tax documents by myself and I used easy soft for accounting of tax.

But every year, the due of tax was my duty and I wanted to finish as soon as possible before the deadline.

For David, he wanted to send his tax document just before the deadline, so it is unbelievable for me.

Because the deadline of tax documents is tomorrow.

If I were in his shoe, I would finish to send all tax documents much before than deadline to make me feel comfortable.

Anyway he looks doing his best to finish sending all tax documents in his holiday so I just let him keep his pace without my disturbing.

Today, it is very changeable weather and sometimes sunshine came out of the sky but suddenly the clouds covered with sy with a shower rain.

So I hope that I can walk without rain if I can today...I wonder how often this unpredictable whether changes today...

I got message from my elder sister and Mom in Japan yesterday so I am so glad to know their happy & peaceful life there.

So I will send my reply for them later.

To contact with my family in Japan is my pleasure and I really with their happy life without troubles in peace every day!^^

The end of March
Today is the end of day in Marc, 2017.

It means that 1 forth of this year has passed already!

How fast time is passing!

In this month, I have experienced so many things and some part of them was tough to handle.

But after all happenings of this month, now I can feel much better myself than before.

I don't know why many things happened to me in my life.

But I think that all my happenings are not coincidence at all, but inevitability and necessity, for sure!

Our life has balance all good things and not good things.

But I want to be my best at any situation of life AS I AM...

My YOGA, meditation and vegetarian diet can lead my life for better way, I can feel.

Because before I started YOGA (before 30 years old), my life was not seemed to let me feel as I am at all.

After some years passed, I could realize how I changed myself better than before as I am right now.

And I want to be myself always and forever as I am.

To be MYSELF is the most important for my life because I am the main character of my life.

Everyone is living on own life story and I have responsibility of my fife, that's all.

When I can take my responsibility of life and then I can support someone who really needs me.

So I cherish my life & myself at first anytime, anyway...

How was your first 3 months of this year??

I hope that you will welcome new April from tomorrow with hope & smile!!^^

Rain again after rain!
Today, it is raining from this morning and yesterday was raining, too.

In Seattle, the weather of rain is very often in winter season especially.

So I am not surprised at this continual rainy days in this week and it will keep rainy days more next a few days, anyway.

Yesterday, I couldn't walk because all day long of raining, so I want to take a walk today if the rain stop in this afternoon.

But I like the sound of rani to keep my mind in peace & calm so I want to be myself as I am today,

I got a nice message from Japanese friend in this morning.

And it gave me so much energy to life me up with hope and positive power.

I am so thankful for her love and kindness that I wan to reply her as soon as possible.

To get a nice message from my friends in Japan is my pleasure and I am so thankful for all of their existence.

I am living in Seattle but I don't feel loneliness or solitude at all after I moved to Seattle from the end of 2014 to now.

To have great friends is essential part of my life to give my mind great energy and positive power.

Usually everyone tend too be busy to care for others so I don't need to contact with all my friends in this world.

But sometimes some of my friends gave me so wonderful message that I can feel so gratitude for their LOVE and kindness always.

My friends are living their own way to enjoy their happy life so I always pray for their happiness in my mind.

And also every my friends has so pure & honest opinion that I can feel their great energy to move my life as well as I want to live my way.

Also I got some message from MOM in Japan today, too.

And her love for us is always kind & unconditional and I am so grateful for her love.

I wish that all of my dear family members & precious friends in this world will enjoy their each life with smile & peace today, too!!^^

New passport!
Today, I went to Japanese Embassy in Seattle again.

Last week, I went there to renewal my old passport and it took a week to get it.

I paid 133$ for my new passport but it is a little cheaper than Japan.

And I got my new passport number and I felt so relieved to get it finally.

Today, it is very chilly outside and it almost started to snow.

I hope that warm spring will come soon because I am not good at cold season.

Anyway, I could get new passport today and the picture was much better than previous passport.

I will use it for next 10 years so I am so glad to get it today without any troubles.

Also the officer of Japanese Embassy told me that I have to report my stay in Japan to Japanese Embassy by internet.

I just changed my Japanese address to Seattle when I moved here in 2014.

But not only changing my address in Japan but also I need to report my stay in the U.S.A. to Japanese Embassy.

I don't know the need of report so I did it at home after I came back to home from Seattle in this afternoon.

Anyway I am so glad that I did everything today.

I am so looking forward to using my new passport to travel somewhere sooner or later!^^

The winter solstice(冬至)
Today is the winter solstice and it is the shortest of daytime in a year.

In Japan, we eat traditional foods on "the winter solstice" to enjoy winter season with healthy foods.

So I will try to cook for our DINNER as our original way for today.

In Japan, they are good foods to eat today that pumpkin (Kabocha),carrot (Ninjin),rotus root(Renkon),orange (Mikan), radish (Daikon), Kumquat (Kinkan),Gin no (Ginnan)etc..

So in Seattle, I can use only carrot and pumpkin for our dinner so I am thinking how to please DAVID tonight, anyway...^^.

Today is the shortest daytime of a year and today is the birthday of SUN to start new season from tomorrow.

So I will enjoy today's special day of this timing to finish this year and I want to cherish today with benevolence.

Only 10 days in 2016, it make me feel so short that this year has passed very very quickly.

Every year, I feel this rapid speed of passing day, week, month and year.

How do you feel this year??

Next Sunday will be Christmas day and after that NEW YEAR is coming day by day....

But for me, holiday's atmosphere can bother my mind so I just want to cherish each day as usual as I do.

Because I can feel every day as special as I am now in Seattle so I don't need specific holiday & big meaning of change of year.

Just day by day, I want to enjoy ONLY ONE DAY in my life, how about you???

New neighborhood
Yesterday, David met a new neighborhood in front of the door.

Previous neighborhoods were very short period to live here.

The previous neighborhoods had so much trouble.

In the middle of night, they came back to home and a police came here in the middle of night once.

Also they seemed to have some trouble for payment for rent delay.

And they might had to have to move by their fault.

They had lived here less 1 year...about only six months.

But new neighborhood is an old lady and her dog.

David talked to her a little and she looks so nice.

So we felt relieved to know that we could have a better neighborhood at this time.

I hope that we will have a nice relationship from now as a neighborhoods each other, anyway...^^

less energy
On Sunday, there are football games in the U.S.A.

David really loves to watch a football game on Sunday with his friends.

Because in Seattle, very tough team is David's favorite team.

Also today, David went to watch the football game with his friends together.

Usually his favorite team won the game and he came back to home with smile & cheerful enegy.

But unfortunately David came back to home with sad face.

Because his favorite team couldn't win the game today.

So he became so less energy than usual and I cannot believe how influence he got from the result of the game.

He couldn't eat his dinner as much as he does tonight.

And he left over some meals because he couldn't feel so much appetite because of the result of the game.

He asked me to keep it because he would eat it later.

I am so worried about David because the result of the football game gave him so much influence.

I don't mind the result of game at all because I am not interested in football at all.

I hope that David will recover his energy later to finish eating his dinner anyway...><

Today is 28th of October.

Only 4 days of this month and 2 months remain in this year.

Days are passing so quickly that every year passes very soon.

These days, many days were raining as usual as in Seattle.

I don't hate the weather of rain but especially there are many days of rain in autumn & winter in Seattle.

So I miss the sunshine a little during rainy season in cold season in Seattle.

But my heart can shine with David's love every day so I don't mind any weather at all.

David's love is warm to keep my heart shining all day long!!^^

something wrong
From last night, I felt something wrong with my nose and throat.

Last week, David got sick, so maybe I got sick, too... a little.

In this morning, I feel a little sick with my nose and throat a little bit.

I don't feel so bad as David got sick before so I don't worry about myself too much.

But just I can feel the difference with myself.

I feel something different feeling with my nose and throat, that's all.

I have no dripping nose and no pain with throat.

So just I need to be careful not too get sick worse than yesterday.

David worries about me but I said to him, "Don't worry about me too much! I will be O.K. like usual soon!!"

So I keep myself warm to not get sick worse but to recover soon!^^
