Today, the weather is so wonderful with blue sky & sunshine and it will be warm spring later.
But in this morning, the temperature was low and I wanted to take a walk to make my body warm up a little.
On the course of my walking, there were some cherry tree and they were so beautiful of cherry blossom today.
With blue sky, all cherry blossom looked so happy to show their beauty as it is and I was so happy to watch it finally.
Most season in a year, all cherry blossom is without flowers but they are alive all year around.
And in this spring season, they became to show so great beauty to us and we could feel new season of spring every year.
Today, I felt a little sad inside of myself but all cherry blossom made me lift up my mind naturally during my walking.
My heart could feel so much recovery with the beauty of cherry blossom and I could feel that cherry blossom let me cheer up to smile again.
Anyway, only short days when we can enjoy this beauty of cherry blossom can let us enjoy watching for a while at many places in Seattle.
So I want to enjoy this beauty season of cherry blossom to absorb this great energy of nature as it is.
Sometimes I can feel a little sad inside but it is only short time so I want to cherish my honest feeling inside.
Because I don't need to focus on my sad part of heart so long that I want to focus on my positive & bright side of myself more and more.
Like today's cherry blossom, I want to make my life blossom as I wish.
Because only me I can make my life bright with hope & positive way, I believe that our way of thinking can make our life real always.
I wish that you can enjoy beautiful spring season with cherry blossom & other great flowers in our nature!
All nature around us can tell us how we need to be as we are, can't they??^^
Today, David & I went to Washington University together.
Because there were a special lecture at Washington University called "SAKURA KAI (Cherry Blossom meeting)" in this afternoon.
I found this lecture in a H.P. which introduce Seattle life & activity in Japanese.
Fortunately, today was David's holiday and it was irregular holiday for him.
And also the lecture was planned another day but it was too early to watch Cherry blossom and the date was postponed today.
So we went there to listen to the lecture.
But today it was raining so the lecture was planned outside but the place was changed in a room because of rain.
There were so many people to listen the lecture and many people stood the end of room.
And some people couldn't enter the small room but we could sit on a chair fortunately.
After 1 hour lecture, we went to outside to watch cherry blossom and they were so beautiful.
Many people took pictures with cherry blossom and the sky became clear without rain at that time.
David & I had a nice time together to enjoy the lecture and to watch beautiful cherry blossom, anyway.
This Washington University is famous for great view of cherry blossom and we were so happy to watch it together today.
The weather was not perfect to enjoy cherry blossom but we could feel new spring season with wonderful cherry blossom.
I am very looking forward to watching more cherry blossom at different location in this spring with warm weather more than today.
Also I hope that the weather will be better than winter with blue sky and sunshine soon.^^
In this morning, there were raining and clouds in the sky without sunshine.
But in this afternoon, suddenly blue sky and sunshine came out from the gray sky and the weather turned to be nice like spring.
So I went to go outside to walk and I could find some cherry blossom on the streets.
There were not full blossom yet but it showed me new season's arrival.
I was very looking forward to welcome this spring and cherry blossom from winter.
Because winter season was very cold with snow, rain & clouds and I missed this warm weather for last 4 months.
But day by day, the daytime became longer and longer and these days I could feel nice warmth of weather sometimes.
So especially today, I feel so much gratitude for this wonderful nature to make my heart be happy with cherry blossom.
After spring, most people tend to forget the existence of cherry trees without lovely flowers.
But all cherry trees are alive all year long and they give us so beauty moment to show their flowers.
In Seattle, many cherry trees are planted and we can enjoy to watch it every spring season.
The forecast of cherry blossom in this spring says that it will be 1st of April in this weekend.
So I am very looking forward to watching beautiful cherry blossom at many areas in Seattle soon!!^^
Nature can tell us some message to our life without words.
Their existence is essential part of my life to let me remind of my way of life with hope & love.
I hope that you will enjoy spring season with cherry blossom!^^
Today it is beautiful day wish sunshine & blue sky!
And the temperature became so warm that I don't need to wear winter clothes too much today.
David and I walked in this morning and we could feel spring with warmth of sunshine so much today.
And we can feel nice atmosphere inside of our hearts naturally.
We don't life too much cold weather because I don't want to use heater at home.
So we are looking forward to having spring season during long winter season... A LOT!
Today is the great weather with warm sunshine and we can feel so much LOVE from SUN.
How is your day today??
I hope that you can feel wonderful LOVE of sunshine with blue sky if possible...
GOD is around us everywhere, I can feel.
And my meaning of "GOD"is not typical religion but "CREATOR of this world", so I can feel so much BLESSING of GOD today.
Anyway, I can feel so much gratitude of today's great weather and LOVE from this world.
I am so happy that I can feel nice coming of spring day by day...^^
I hope that you can feel new season with warmth & sunshine without too much cold weather anymore!
From the last night, it was raining until this morning.
Today it will rain all day long because the weather forecast says so.
In Seattle, rainy & cloudy days are mostly in the winter season.
But with rain & clouds, the temperature is not so cold but sunshine days become so cold in the morning and the night.
So today, I could feel the warmth of temperature and I am so glad to feel it.
David woke up around 3:00 a.m. in the morning to work at earliest schedule of his new working.
So I woke up at the same time with him and I tried to sleep again after I saw him off at the door.
But my body recognized the morning so I couldn't sleep after he left home.
So I just tried to lay down on the FUTON for a while and I waited my sleeping desire of body come back again.
Little by little, I could feel sleepy again so I started to sleep for an hour.
And I woke up after a short sleep again but my body feels something different from usual sleeping.
Sleeping is the most important for our body at night.
David must be sleepy today, too...so I worry about his body condition.
He started to work from a few weeks ago, so now he learned how to work at many different kinds of schedule.
Sometimes he started to work at 5:00 p.m until 11:00 p.m so his sleeping time became so random and irregular.
He says, "I am O.K.!" but I want him to sleep as much as possible every night.
We eat so much healthy organic foods every day but sleeping is the most important to keep our body and mind in good condition.
So just I tried David to sleep as long as possible to adjust new working schedule these days.
Like sun's movement, we had better to sleep at night and to move during daytime.
I hope that his schedule of new work will be regular shift as he wants little by little after this training month, anyway.
How is your day after Valentines' day?
I hope that you can feel LOVE as much as possible every single day not only Valentine's day with SMILE.!!^^
When I woke up, it was snowing in the morning.
These days, after new year, it was getting warmer than before and I felt warmth of spring sometimes.
But again it became winter weather with snow again.
I took a walk in this morning by myself and many trees were still covered with snow.
In the afternoon, sunshine came to the sky between heavy clouds, so I imagined that all trees are patient with snow for sunshine or spring season as they are.
Only human beings has some complains about weather but wild nature and animals has never complain at all.
Just they exists as they are and focus on their lives to survive, I feel.
After my walking, I could feel much energy inside my heart naturally and I felt positive energy of warmth of my mind.
To feel this calm & pure energy of snow is my favorite way to enjoy cold season.
My mind is very clear and stable with peace today and I am thankful for everything around me today.
How are you today??
Can you feel your warmth inside of heart with smile??
I hope that your TODAY will be wonderful with positive energy and let's wait for our next spring season day by day...^^
In this morning, I went to walk by myself because I needed to feel my mind & body alone.
So I went to my favorite park and I really enjoyed the atmosphere in peace.
Usually I met many runners and walking people in this park but today there were anyone during my walking.
How great I could use this park alone to feel myself deeply & silently.
Today it is a little cloudy and it was not the best weather to walk.
But the quiet atmosphere and calm forest could give me wonderful peace in my mind naturally.
I really love to walk by myself sometimes because usually David wants to talk all way long of our walking.
I sometimes enjoy to listen to his messages but sometimes I like to concentrate my silent inside of heart.
Especially today, I really had a nice time to feel the nature and silent peace with this park.
After I got out of this park, some rain came to my head on the road.
But it was not much rain and I wore my raincoat so I didn't worry about my clothes wet at all.
Finally I came back to home with clear & peaceful mind and I could feel so nice energy inside of myself naturally.
Today it is not good weather with heavy cloud and the sky is a little dark all day long, but my heart is shining with my clearness & pure feeling.
So just I want to concentrate what I need to do today.
ONLY 3 days of 2016 is going to connect NEW YEAR, so I cherish this day as much as possible with my peaceful mind & benevolence.^^
From the middle of last night, it started to snow outside.
And in this morning, a few inches of snow outside in Seattle for the first time in 2016.
It was cold but very beautiful with snow and I can feel so much pure & silent energy inside of myself.
And David & I started to meditate as usual as we start NEW DAY but we gave up taking a walk.
Because we don't want to slip outside with snow and we decided to take a rest for a while.
The tree & road with snow is just beautiful outside and I really love to watch this view from our dining room & kitchen.
After a little rain in this morning, it became so bright with snow & white sky.
When I lived in Shizuoka (my hometown) of Japan, there were no snow in every winter season at all.
But only a few times when I was child, it was snowing a little and we are so happy to watch it.
But there were no pile of snow at my hometown in Japan so I just want to cherish this beautiful view in Seattle.
This is the first snow in Seattle in this year and the snow let me feel so calm & silent inside of myself.
But David looks so exciting to see the first snow in this morning, and his past memories of snow may reminds of exciting & fun a lot.
We can feel different impression of snow in this morning, but we had a nice time together to start new day each other.
Today I will cook organic brown rice pasta with organic vegetable source to make our body warm.
Every day, our body & mind is changing and I need to adjust my cooking with seasoning to make our better condition for tomorrow.
Usually David can enjoy my surprise dinner after his work and his smile can make me happy & worth to cook for us every day.
So I will do my best at housework as much as possible to welcome David after his effort of work outside.
Anyway, snow is very beautiful and great white view which shows me pureness & calmness as it is...^^
After our meditation time, David & I went to take a walk in this morning.
Today it became -4 ℃ outside so it was so cold that we need to make our body warm.
We went to our favorite park which there so many woods and lovely small lake.
And suddenly David stopped because he found wild OWL on the branch of wood.
I didn't notice it at all but the owl was watching our passing the trail silently.
Usually wild owls doesn't show at all because they are very careful.
During our passing by the owl, he didn't move at all to observe us.
I thought that owl knew us as safe existence not to harm.
In Seattle, David has no memory to met wild owl in his life so he was very surprised at it.
Anyway luckily we met wild owl in the wood and we felt so lucky today.
We don't have so much materials in our marriage life because we don't need too much materials at all.
We live simply as less materials as possible and we want to live together with spiritual satisfaction.
And we really cherish our Meditation time to keep our mind in peace & graceful heart inside.
Our important part of marriage life is invisible part and only David & I can feel it together.
So today's meeting the wild owl was very special for us.
It looks like a miracle happening to us, we can feel it.
Nature & wild animals know who we really are.
Our body is as a human being but our true spirit is inside of our bodies.
The spirit is invisible but we can feel naturally.
And we want to polish our spirit by daily life with meditation & organic vegetarian diet.
Pureness of heart and honest self can give our mind growth, we believe.
David & I are doing our best each day as much as possible and our small step may be a tiny one.
But we want to cherish our baby step in our marriage life to grow up our spirit level day by day....
We wish that we can grow up more and more by each effort with honest & pure heart.
We have no idea what will happen to us tomorrow, so I want to cherish THIS DAY as we are now...^^
David and I make avocado plant grow up at home.
And at first, the avocado plants was inside of organic avocado.
I put the avocado seed outside after we ate the pulp, I put the seed into a glass of water to make it grow the root.
And a few weeks later, the root came out from the bottom of the avocado seed little by little.
So I replanted the avocado seed into a small container with soil.
And then it started to grow up more and more with lots of leaves.
After a few months later, the avocado plants became tall so I replaced another bigger container to grow it up more about a few weeks ago.
Ant then the avocado plants' leaves became so bigger than before day by day.
When I replanted it before, the bottom of the roots became so many that they wanted to grow up more wide space to grow up more.
So I decided to replant it again to bigger container to grow it up more to give all roots have enough space.
This is the 4th replant for our avocado seed.
It is becoming taller and bigger day by day after my replanting.
Our avocado plant will grow up more with our good care from now on.
To care for it is our pleasure and it looks like our lovely pet now...^^
