In this year, only today and tomorrow remain...
Today, it was very very cold outside and the temparture was -6℃‼
Outside was so much cold and the air was so chilly for me.
Sunshine is very bright today, too, but anyway it is very cold!!
But in Janurary & February will be much colder than December, David says to me...Oh, no!!
Can I stand the cold season in Seattle??
I am so afraid of the cold from now...
Anyway in this year remain 2 days only!!
Soon new year will come soon, it is unbelieable for me!
How is your 2014??
And how do you feel about new 2015 soon??
I wish you will have a nice time from 2014 to 2015...
Just I wish that the weathe will not become so much cold in Seattle...
At last summer time, we got a organic basil plants.
But little by little, the temparture became down and the basil plants became weak.
I thought that I have to give up to grow up the basil plants anymroe in this winter season.
But I found a baby sprout in the planter!!
I am so happy to find it fortunately.
Basil plants is not good at growing up in cold season but the baby can grow up, ,maybe...
So now I am caring for it evvery day to grow up as long as possible.
I didn't expect to grow up the basil plants in this winter at all so I am happy to find it!!
Only 4 days remain in this year!!
New year will come pretty soon...
David is going to have a holiday on the new year's day so I am happy to be with him.
Please enjoy your the rest of days in 2014 with lots of fun & happiness...
Yesterday was Chirstmad day.
After Christmas, many people rush to go shopping again.
And all shops can sell many products & goods and their income will increase so much.
Many shop is selling a big sales today.
But I am not going to buy anything today.
I am not intereted in buying new materials today at all.
David told me "Gasolin for cars became so cheaper than before!" and the price became down so much actually.
Before the price of gasoline for 1 gallon was 3 dollars and 80～90 cents in last summer.
But now, the price became about 2 dollars and 30 cents.
For 1 gallon of gasoline became to be cheap about 1 dollars and 50 cents, it became really cheap!!
And many people tend to use much money instead of using for payment of gasoline, David told me.
For me, the derise for buying materials cannot change by the price of gasoline, so I cannot feel the change at all.
Without getting more materials, my mind can feel content & satisfacion with LOVE every day.
So I don't need more materials to buy at all.
And of course, I am happy so much with my staffs now.
After Christmas, many people is buying many goods now and it doesn't matter for me at all.
And I wish for my preciuos friends to feel happiness & peace in each heart every day...
Always I am thankful for my friends' kindness & love for me and I reappy appreciate with David's love at anytime.
Shall we enjoy to having a nice time for the rest of this year??
Today is Chirstmas day!
Most shops and restaurants are closed for Chirstmas holidays.
David will work today only 4 hours later.
But until then, we can enjoy to being together.
Today is very shiny day and we went to the Edmonds beach together to take a walk.
Many people are taking a walk and they looks so happy for Chirstmas.
Some people wear the cap of Santa Claus' and said to us "Happy Christmas!".
I feel everyone can feel happy for Christmas.
For me, not only Christams day but also normal days are special for me.
To being with preciuos & lovely husband can make me happy always.
I wrote a Christmas card for David to express my gratitude for him & his love for me always.
After he read it, he came to me to hug me so tightly & to kiss me, I feel his love for me so much.
I made a pumpkin cake for Chirstams.
Yesterday and today David enjoyed to eating it.
His smile & happy eyes can make me happy every day.
I wish you can enjoy happy Chirstmas & welcome a new year soon...
Not only Chritsmas day but also every day, I wish you have a happy time with someone special at anytime!!
In the U.S.A., this week is special holidays for Chirstmas.
Many people will have long holidays to spend time with family together and any places are crowded with many people.
Only shopping at supermarkes, it is difficult to find a parking place before shopping.
Anywas many people seems very busy for shopping and doing something for Chritsmas.
On the any roads many cars are running and sometimes traffic jam are around here and there.
David knows the Christmas season well in the U.S.A and just I am surprised this crowded atmosphere...
For Americans, Christmas is very special holiday for everyone.
But I am Japanese and I am not familiar with Christmas so well.
David seemes to enjoy some special atmosphere for Christmas....
And I am thinking for cooking something special for Christmas, like a cake.
I hope he will enjoy eating it for Chirstmas to feel the Christmas somehow.
I wish you will enjoy a happy Christmas with someone special as much as possible...
After Christmas, this year will finish soon...2014 will pass so quickly!!
I hope you can enjoy the rest of this year to connect a new year soon...
Recently David found organic red beets at our favorite supermaket.
And he told me he really likes beets.
So I used it for salad but all salad became to red color always.
Beets' red color was very strong and all salad colors became red.
The change of color was always same and I wanted all salad to become the same color somehow.
Before adding beets for salad, I baked it to make sweet.
And after making salad, I added the baked beets the color of salad didn't change at all.
The taste of beets after baked, it became so sweet and it really delicious.
Today I oooked tomato source for oraganic rice pasta.
And I used 1 read beets for tomato source, and the color of it became pretty red more than normal one.
But it became so nice taste and I hope it will be a nice dinner later!
This is my first challenge to use red beet for tomato source but it really seems delicious.
Today is already 20th December!
It means that this year remain only 10 days...
Soon next new year will come soon, December passes so quickly!
Shall we enjoy the rest of days in this year with smile??
In this morning, it was raining a lot.
I thought that David needed to bring un umbrella not to be wet.
But he didn't want to bring un umbreall at all.
He started to put on his raincort in the room.
But suddenly he checked outside the rain and he noticed rain stopped already.
And he started to put off the raincort to go outside.
I worried about him to be wet outside.
But he changed the outer from the raincort to normal outer.
And "rain stopped alreay and I am O.K.!!" he said and he went to work.
I was so surprised at him that he didn't seem to like to bring un umbrella & to put on a raincort at all.
In case the rain will start, I will bring un umbrella if I were him.
But he is completely different from my thought at all.
Rain stopped after his going out so I am so relieved to know that later...
People seldom seems not to worry about the rain in Seattle, I feel so much difference anyway.
I always cook some bread for David's lunch.
Recently many organic banan riped so well at the same time so I used it.
Only riped banana can make the bread sweet enough without sweetness.
Sometimes I add the bread coconuts flake or dried figs or chestnut(from Japan) in it.
And always I use some kinds of nuts for the banana bread to mix together.
With cinamon powder and a little peanuts butter or while sesami cream(tahini), my banana bread can be delicious easily.
I put the banana bread into the oven about 15 minutes and just it became a nice one.
David is looking forward to eating it at working place every day so I cook it with some arrangement every day.
Before, the banana was not riped yet well, I used some organic vegetable for banana.
For example, mashed carrots, potato paste, sweet corn paste or baked onions etc...all organic vegetables are suitable for bread anyway.
To cook for David is always pleasure for me so I can enjoy it every day.
Cooking is my expression of my love so I want to arrange each meal as well as possible somehow...
Today, David's company has a party for Christmas and invites all workers & their partners for a Musical at 5th Avenue Theatre at night.
Of course, I was going to the patry and watch the musical with David and I got ready for it at home.
But in the afternoon, suddenly I felt so bad like a dizziness of anemia.
I was sitting on the chair at dining room but I couldn't sit down anymore and I started to lie down on the floor.
And I sent my message for David about my body's condition and I asked him for my absense for the party & the musical tonight.
David was really looking for the musical so I asked him to go the party & the musical including my absense.
I started to lie down after my sending message to David to recover.
And little by little my bad body condition is getting better than before.
Suddenly David came home and he seemed not to go the party & the musical tonight.
Because he worried about me and he wanted to be with me to care for me.
I wanted him to enjoy tonight's party and the musical so much but he came home for me.
I cannnot find any words for expression of my gratitude for him, just I appreicate with his love so much.
With his love ,I felt so much better than before and I am so blessed with his love every day.
His love is so deep and amazing, so I always feel appreciiation for him every day.
Only 2 weeks remain in this year.
2014 will finish pretty soon and new year will come!
How is your end of this year??
I wish you will have a nice end of this year and a wonderful new year soon with smile!
