Yesterday, David went to see Dad after his work and he stayed at Dad's home together.
So I was alone last night to sleep for the first time after we moved to this new apartment.
Always David keeps talking to me when he is at home, so it was silent night without David last night.
I missed his existence but he called me a few times last night.
So just I enjoyed my time with silence and I woke up 5:30 a.m. in this morning.
And I started to meditate by myself and I felt nice feeling inside of myself.
Today it looks cloudy weather and it is a little dark morning.
But I hope that it will be nice weather in this afternoon.
David's Dad is living at dessert city, so it must be much hotter than here.
David will come back to home in this afternoon, so I will not miss him so much anymore.
David's cheerful energy let me feel happy and vivid feeling to be together.
This new apartment is very silent and I cannot believe that more than 300 residents live here.
The structure of this building must be so tough that I cannot hear of any noise of neighborhoods.
I hope that David's Dad is not tired of David's talking, anyway...
And I hope that they enjoyed having "Dad and Son" time together with smile and laughter.
Sometimes David really wants to see his Dad, so I let him go to see him.
He needs Dad's energy sometimes, so just I want him to enjoy his own time with Dad.^^
I don't miss my parents so much that I have not come back to home in Japan for last 5 years.
Because my heart is here with David and his love can make me feel home where my heart is now.
So just I am happy to be with David every single day...but I just wish my parents' happy life in Japan, anyway...^^
Today is independence holiday in the U.S.A.
And most people enjoy this holiday with family but David and I had to finish our errands after move.
Last night, we really had a great sleep together on our new FUTON(Japanese style sleeping mat) and sheets well enough.
So David felt much better today than yesterday.
But I can feel his fatigue so I want to cook his special dinner for his feast on 4th of July.
We decided to get wild shrimps for our dinner and he requested me "PASTA".
So I will cook his favorite pasta with nice shrimps later.
David and I felt settling down to our new apartment day by day, but we need to finish our errands a little more today.
But mostly of our move looks done so we can feel a little relaxation for today's holiday.
Anyway, moving is so much tough work for us but we are so proud of ourselves that we almost finished by ourselves without someone's help.
Just we need to take a rest and relaxation today as much as possible...
I wish that you enjoy a great holiday of "4th of July" with your family as your favorite way...^^
Have a great holiday with smile and delicious feast!!
Today, David and I went to a La Corner by his driving.
We visited this small town before but we love to visit there again.
On the way to this town, there were a nice field with beautiful tulips.
Last month, there was a big tulip festival and we wanted to visit then.
But we missed to visit the chance but we watched a lovely tulip filed today fortunately.
After that, we visited La Corner together and we enjoyed walking around this town for a while.
This small town was quiet with nice view of river and there were some people to enjoy looking around this town.
We dropped some shops together and it was really fun time for us.
David and I really had a nice time together.
And I am very happy to know David's comfortable feeling to enjoy this visit today.
The weather was perfect to walk around this town and we felt so happy together, anyway...
From yesterday, May has just started.
4 months in this year have already passed and time passes so quickly that I want to enjoy each day as a special one as much as possible...^^
From the begging of this week, Christmas holidays' atmosphere has been around here and there.
Most American looks being looking forward to having Christmas holidays with cheerful energy.
But David and I are not having special party at all in this year.
Because only Christmas day, David could have a holiday and he has to work the next day of Christmas.
So we decided to enjoy our own way of Christmas in this year with peaceful and calm atmosphere.
I don't like too much cheerful party at all, I prefer to enjoy normal holiday as I am.
Because not only Christmas holidays are not HOLY day but also every day is holy and precious day for me.
So I just want to have a usual feeling with peaceful energy inside of my heart.
Also I am not a Christian and I don't need to celebrate Christmas holiday at all.
I really want to spend David's holiday with gratitude and love as I wish.
But I want most people enjoy Christmas holidays as they wish, and it is each choice to do anything in their holidays.
I just want to spend my day as usual as I am and every day is holy and important one, because today is the only one day and it will not come to my life again, never.
How is your plan of Christmas holidays?
I wish that you will enjoy your favorite way as you are with love and smile...^^
During David holiday, yesterday and the day before yesterday, suddenly the fire alarm started to ring sometimes.
But I didn't mind the sound but when we started to sleep, David couln't stand the noise at all.
The fire alarm started to ring but I could start to sleep with the noise and I had no idea what happened after my sleeping.
David wanted to make the fire alarm stop anyhow and he tired to do so many things during my sleeping.
He shut down alarm system by stop the light of electricity and he could start to sleep finally.
But after I woke up yesterday, David looked sleepless and I was so sorry for him.
Because he was the end of recovery from the sick still, so he needed to sleep well enough that night.
Anyway, I woke up yesterday morning, he told all story of his fight with the fire alarm.
And also he asked the repairman of our apartment to fix it as soon as possible.
He came to our home to fix the trouble of the fire alarm yesterday and we could sleep well last night.
Now we could sleep well with silence as usual as we were and the fire alarm will not ring anymore.
I am so glad for the repair that I am so thankful David's effort and the repairman's repair of it, anyway...^^
I am very dull of the noise when we fall asleep at night but David is very sensitive with any noise.
Usually, David has a holiday on every Wednesday.
But today, it is just before day of Thanksgiving day and his working company is the busiest day..
So David's manager asked him to work today to support so he went to work today.
But he got holiday yesterday and tomorrow, so I am so sorry for him that he cannot take holiday continual 2 days of holidays.
From last week, Thanksgiving holidays have started already and everyone felt holiday's atmosphere everywhere.
But for me, Thanksgiving is not familiar with my culture of Japan, so just I want to enjoy my dally time as I am.
In this year, David and I are going to have own Thanksgiving holiday together without having Thanksgiving feast with his family.
David's 2 brother's family is going to have different place to celebrate each Thanksgiving feast, so we will enjoy our own holiday.
Anyway, tomorrow David will have holiday of Thanksgiving, so I am looking forward to having nice time with him.
Today, I went to 2 Yoga class in this morning and it was nice time to focus on my body and mind peacefully with comfortable breath.
I didn't do so much posture of Yoga today not to hurt my body too much like last week.
So I can feel much better today than last week and I need to keep my own pace not to follow too much Yoga exercises of the fitness club anymore.
I wish that my friend and family of the U.S.A will enjoy Thanksgiving holiday as they wish with Blessing & pleasure!^^
Today is David's holiday but today's weather forecast was not good with rain.
But the sky doesn't look so bad with less clouds and David & I think to be able to walk outside together without rain.
And we started to finish all errands at first and we decided to take a walk at our favorite course.
It needs to drive there to walk but we had a nice walk together about 1 hour around our favorite lake.
I don't expect too much to enjoy today at all because all weather is blessing for every beings in this world.
But today was wonderful day with nice weather and we could watch a few cherry blossom trees around the lake to feel spring.
Anyway to feel the new season with nice weather can make me feel wonderful and I am so thankful for today.
And everything around me happened to make me learn my world and I want to cherish every single day with gratitude & love for this world.
We are living on this MOTHER EARTH as a human beings and my spirit will enjoy each day as a new experience.
So I want to focus on positive & better things in my life to make my world feel happiness & gratitude as much as possible.
How is your today??
I hope that you can enjoy your new day with smile & gratitude as your favorite way.
Because your life is only yours and it is BLESSING every day!!^^
Today is Presidents day in the U.S.A and it is holiday to pay respect to past presidents who served this country.
So most people take a holiday today and most banks and schools take holiday.
But I am not so familiar with this holiday that I have a normal day for me.
At our apartments, today looks quiet and calm like Sunday because today is holiday.
Today, it is raining a little outside, so David and I gave up taking a walk after our meditation time.
With rain, we can walk together with raincoat but today we didn't go for walking.
In the U.S.A., national holidays are less than Japan.
So some holidays looks so precious for American, I can feel.
A few days ago, I got organic cacao nibs at our favorite supermarket.
It is made by organic cacao beans and they are roasted and looks chocolate chips.
So today I made a banana cake with cacao nibs for David's snack.
All ingredients are organic and everything mixed so nice that I could make nice banana cup cake finally.
David will love this taste because cacao nibs will let David taste like a chocolate chips inside the cake.
Cacao nibs are not sweet at all but the texture is crunchy and nice flavor of cacao beans.
I really love this cacao nibs and I want to arrange for other sweets to use it for David again!!^^
Today is Christmas Eve but I don't care about it so much.
But David wants to enjoy something special for Christmas holidays so we got his favorite fish for our dinner.
For me, every day is like special because no one day will come to me not as same as it is.
So I want David to enjoy his Christmas for special meal so I will cook for his fish as possible as I can.
I am vegetarian and I don't need to eat fish or other animal products but David likes to eat fish sometimes.
So I can adjust my diet after today so I am learning how to be flexible to live with David.
What is special??
What is the best Christmas for him???
I don't know exactly how much I can treat him as special as he can feel.
To adjust each opinion makes our better point of each compromising feel comfortable way of living, we are looking for it every day, I feel.
If we can not feel good and happy each other, it is not my hope at all.
To adjust each opinion can lets us feel better mind in peace without argue and frustration.
Men and women is different kind of person so sometimes we can feel each difference.
But we can communicate each other to understand each difference, I hope.
Marriage life is long way of our life.
So day by day, many things can bring me to understand each other more and better.
I wish that you will have a great Christmas Eve with LOVE & SMILE at your favorite place.
I pray for everyone's happy life in peace & benevolence as you wish...^^
Soon Christmas will come.
And this week has already come holiday's atmosphere for Christmas.
David & I went to shopping some foods today and many cars are lined up on most roads.
And there were many cars parked in some big shopping malls.
Most people tried to get some present for Christmas and they will buy get something before Christmas.
David asked me what I want for Christmas.
But I told him, "I don't want anything."
Because I have things enough already.
And I felt satisfaction with my staffs and I don't want to get anything for Christmas at all.
Most people tend to think that we want to get something more for Christmas.
But it cause to make them think by Christmas mood & economic advertisement.
I realized how I can feel content with present life.
And I don't feel to want something more at all.
I am very happy with my present life with David.
So I wonder why most people want to get something for Christmas.
I don't know why people want to get something more and more.
To find the content of present life is easy for me and I just want to be with David for Christmas.
And it will make me happy on Christmas even we won't do something special.
But David seems to want something different from normal life on Christmas, so I want to follow his needs.
