Birthday feast!
Tomorrow, it will be Dad's birthday and his elder brother's birthday.

So David and I went to visit them to celebrate their birthday together the day before their birthday.

We woke up early in this morning and we went to their living area by David's car.

We arrived at there safely and it was very hotter than Seattle.

It felt like a summer and it was too hot for me, it was still in April!!!

Anyway, David and I had a nice time with Dad for a while and we visited his elder brother's home to have dinner together.

His elder brother and his wife got ready for great feast to celebrate their birthday together.

We enjoyed such a great dinner together and we talked a lot together.

A few month ago, David's Dad was in a hospital and he recovered to eat his favorite foods like tonight.

So I am so happy for them that we could have a wonderful time together.

I baked special cake for them and I wrote my message for both of them.

David and I really enjoyed having a great feast together and we are so thankful for his brother's and his wife's great cooking for us, anyway.

I am so lucky to have a great brother and a wonderful sister in law through our marriage, and we really thankful for their LOVE for us always...

To celebrate Dad's birthday in this year was very special for everyone, because we worried Dad so much.

But we wish his long life with healthy body condition as long as possible...^^

A few weeks ago, I got a message from my elder sister in Japan suddenly.

She wants to visit us in Seattle in this year if David and I are O.K.

She wants to watch baseball game in Seattle because she is interested in ICHIRO who came back to a baseball team in Seattle in this year again.

I am not interested in ICHIRO at all but I want to see my elder sister if she can come.

Also my Dad wanted to visit us but he wants to visit us with my elder sister because he worries to travel alone in foreign country.

So my elder sister tried to ask Dad to visit us in this year last weekend.

I am not sure of they will visit us in this year yet, but David and I wish that they will come together if possible.

I have not come back to Japan from 2013 at all, so sometimes I miss my family...but not so much.

But I guess that my family may worry about our marriage life in Seattle a little, so they want to visit us if we are O.K. here.

We are completely O.K. to be together so I don't want my family worry about us too much.

My Mom has a trouble of her ears and she cannot stand 10 hours flight unfortunately.

I want her to visit us someday but I worry about her ears, anyway...

Today it is a beautiful day with sunshine and blue sky!

I hope that spring arrived at Seattle completely not to go back to cold weather anymore...^^

Have a great spring season with beautiful flowers and great sunshine at your place!!

Easter holidaiy!
Today, it is Easter holiday to welcome new season of spring.

But I am not familiar with this holiday at all and David told me how to celebrate today.

I want David to enjoy today's holiday as special so I will cook something good for him, anyway.

Yesterday, it was FULL MOON night, so I did my easy DETOX for myself.

And I felt much better now than before and I want to adjust my diet as usual as I do little by little from today.

Also today is 1st day of April and 3 months has already passed in this year.

How quickly one day, one week and one month passed these days....

I just want to enjoy every single day as special as it is to cherish each day like a GIFT.

No one day is not as same as other days, so I want to enjoy this day with gratitude.

David told me that Dad's cousin passed away suddenly and we will attend his funeral next week.

So like is not unpredictable for everyone, so I just cherish today as much as possible...^^

Mom's package
Last week, Mom sent a package to me.

And it was express international package and it arrived at home.

But when I went to take a Yoga class of fitness club, I couldn'f find anything outside of our door.

After David came back to home, he found a note of "missed delivery" of USPS on the door.

The note said that "we delivered at 9:30 a.m. today but you were not at home.", but I was at home at that time.

And I didn't find any note on the door when I left home at 10:30 a.m. in this morning.

Also I didn't hear someone's knocking on the door at that time.

I had no idea when the delivery man came to our home actually.

Anyway, I needed to ask "REDELIVER" via USPS H.P. and I asked them to redeliver next Monday.

Because I will be busy tomorrow, so I will be at home on next Monday to get the package, for sure.

I just let Mom know that her package arrived in Seattle already.

I am very thankful for Mom's kindness and love for us and I am so looking forward to get her package soon...^^

Mom sometimes sends us her handmade foods and my staffs which I bought in Japanese internet shopping by myself.

And she made a package together to send me always and I really appreciate with her love for us to enjoy her love.

The end of November
Today is the end of November in 2017, it means that only 1 month have in this year.

I cannot believe how fast time goes by every year.

The day before yesterday, David and I talked to my parents in Japan via Skype about 1 hour.

And today I sent a message to them via e-mail and it became a little long one.

During I wrote my message to my parents, suddenly my eyes became filled with some tears.

I don't know why my tears came out of my eyes but I felt so much feeling about my parents, David's parent and David with gratitude.

Our marriage life will be 5 years next week and I really appreciate with David and our parents love for me.

And I don't know how much I am loved by them so much and just I felt so much gratitude for them today.

Maybe, I am a little emotional from yesterday's period but my heart can feel so warm feeling inside deeply.

Also David shows his love for me every single day and his love can give my heart tenderness and kindness anyway...

I am very lucky to have David through our marriage to be here in Seattle now.

And just I want to be better myself from now on with love and gratitude.

Today, it was raining in this morning but in this afternoon, it will stop raining by weather forecast.

So I want to take a walk by myself to feel my mind silently with beautiful view of trees on the road.^^

Skype time
I asked my Dad & Mom in Japan to talk by Skype tonight from last week.

And David and I waited for the connection of Skype after our dinner time and Dad and Mom tried to connect with us.

In Japan, it was just before their lunch time, and it was the time of our sleeping time after our dinner, when we started to talk.

I wanted to know how my elder sister's wedding ceremony and party a few weeks ago and they told David and I about it at the begging.

And we laughed so hard that Mom, Dad and we talked a lot about what happened to the wedding party.

Mom and Dad looked so happy that we could talked together for a while.

Mom needed to get ready for their lunch and we started to talk to Dad.

Usually Mom talks a lot to us and Dad talks less than Mom.

But we could talked to Dad this time and I thought that Mom could listen to our conversation behind Dad during her cooking time.

And they started to eat lunch and we felt sleepy like usual so we finished talking.

We talked together about 1 hour and it was very nice time to both of us, and I guess that my parents looked happy to communicate with us with our happy smile through the camera of Skype.

Anyway, to talk to my parents in Japan is not so often but we really had a wonderful time to share tonight.

I hope that we will talk to them again after new year...^^

Sister's wedding
Last night before our sleeping time, my elder sister's started her wedding ceremony in Japan.

I was thinking about her before sleeping and I asked my younger sister's husband to take her picture to send me later.

And I checked my mobile phone and some pictures were sent to it.

David and I were so happy to check her photo with her husband.

We wanted to participate in her wedding ceremony but we decided not to go there.

We need to save our limited money to move next summer so I sent my message for my sister to read at her wedding ceremony through Dad.

I hope that my elder sister and her husband could enjoy my message, anyway.

My elder sister's wedding costume was typical Japanese style and it was so beautiful to make her smile bright.

Next week, they are going to enjoy honeymoon.

David and I just wish her happy marriage life with love and smile.

I am so thankful for my younger sister's husband to take some photos for us A LOT.

And his sons' growth was so great that David and I really enjoy those photos with smile...^^

Kind sister
Today, I got a post card from my sister in law.

She wrote me a kind message about my uncle's death.

My uncle passed away the end of last month suddenly.

He was kind and nice uncle for me, so I cannot believe his death still now.

My sister gave me thoughtful message in her message card.

I am so thankful for her kind heart with sympathy.

I sent her my reply by e-mail today.

I am very lucky to have a wonderful sister in law here in Seattle, anyway...^^

Second message
I thought about my wedding message to my elder sister again after Dad's second reply.

I thought and thought a lot and I sent my second message to Dad last night.

And then, Dad gave me a message that it was a great message and he liked it.

Mom sent me her message that she liked it, too.

So I am very glad that Dad & Mom liked my message to my elder sister finally.

I hope that my elder sister will like it at her wedding party.

He wedding ceremony will have two weeks later.

So I guess that she is busy to get ready for it now.

I wish that she will enjoy her wedding ceremony with her husband, anyway.

I am so happy for her that she got married with her husband.^^

Wedding message
Next month, my elder sister is going to have a ceremony of wedding.

But I am not going to participate in her ceremony unfortunately.

So Dad asked me to send her my wedding message via e-mail a few days ago.

And I wrote my simple message and sent Dad yesterday.

But Dad gave me a reply about my message that it is too short.

So I need to make more message to my sister from now.

I am very happy for her that she will have a wedding ceremony soon.

So, I want to make better happy message for her anyhow...^^
