David and I like to walk in the nature.

And his holidays, we sometimes took a walk around lake & seaside together.

We really like nature and walking so much and we need to feel the nature as much as possible each other.

Also we talked to do camping last summer.

But we have no tent yet and I really want to it in this summer.

Yesterday I found a nice tent on sale!

I thought that a tent is a little expensive but it was much cheaper than my imagination.

So I ordered it by Amazon's HP before I tell David at all.

Because I want to surprise him to get our new tent.

He is working so hard every single day so I want to treat him somehow.

After he came back to home after work, I told him about my shopping of our new tent.

He had never thought about it and it was beyond his imagination.

And he looked so happy to know my shopping and I could feel happiness just to look at his happy smile.

In next week, our new tent will be delivered to our home soon...

We are really exciting of the arrival and looking forward to using it together in great nature!

His happy smile is my happiness always...so I am very glad to get it very very much.

Tohu in Soy source
Sometimes I make a tofu cheese.

After boiled tofu, all dementions of tofu need to spread with Miso (fermented soy bean paste).

And just I put it in a contener in refregirator for 1 week, the tofu can become cheese taste.

But this time, I made a soy source for tofu cheese.

After I boiled a tofu in hot water, I put some plates on the tofu to drain water inside of tofu.

And just I put it in container with soy source in refregirator for 3 days.

Sometimes I turn it up-side-down in the container to let tofu absorb the taste of soy source.

The tofu became like a cheese taste easilly.

I put my first soy source tofu cheese in brown rice salad.

It was a nice conbination and it was really delicious!

I will try to make it again because it is very simple way and tasty anyway...

Yesterday I felt so less energy than normal.

I don't know why but I felt so much fatigue and dull of my body.

After David came back to home, I wanted to sleep to take a rest.

And I didn't want David to worry about me too much because he worked so hard in the busiest day yesterday.

After he finished eating dinner, I told him about my body condition and I need to sleep as soon as possible.

Suddenly he started to massage for my both hands and arms.

I told him that he didn't need to do massage for me because he must have been tired after hard work.

But he didn't stop doing massage for him at all.

And after hands' massage he tried to do massage for my both feet.

I could feel so much love of David through his massage and I almost started to cry.

After his massage, I felt my body light better than before.

He was very kind and tender for me and I just appreciated with his love for me.

After I felt better, I did massage for him in return a little.

I was working as a massager before so I am good at doing it.

After my massage for him, he learned to do massage better than his massage and he tried to do massage for me again.

I wanted him to sleep after his work so I refused his offer at that time.

Anyway, his deep love for me helped me so much and I could wake up better than yesterday.

His wonderful massage with LOVE was very effective and I realized again how lucky I got married David.

Telephone call
David calls his Dad mostly every day.

But I don't call my parents in Japan at all.

I sent some e-mail to them and it is normal for us.

David worry about me & my parents and he suggested to call my parents in Japan yesterday suddenly.

I was surprised at his offer but I let him call to my parents because I know its his love for them.

Yesterday our local festival held fortunately.

David called to my parents' phone number at first and Dad picked to talk then.

They seemed to enjoy talking together and I was very happy to know that.

Dad told me that Mom was outside to care for her vegetable garden at that time.

So we decided to call Mom later.

And after lunch time in Japan, David called to Mom's cell phone to talk to her directly.

Mom's voice seemed to be surprised at Davd's sudden call but it sounded so happy.

And my elder sister and younger sister's family would come to have a barbecue party today for the local festival.

My parents' house had just finished remodeling recently so they sounded to be happy at the new house.

After a short talking to my parents, David looked so happy to know their happy time.

I appreciate with his love for our parents so much because my parents could know our happiness with LOVE.

David misses Japan so much and we are very looking forward to visiting them someday to stay at their new house.

Healing soup
Yesterday we had a nice time together in David's holiday but we felt tired after hot day outside.

So we still feel a little fatigue today so I made a special soup for today's dinner.

The soup will heal our body and mind, I believe.

I chopped a garlic and sliced onions.

I baked them with a little slat and added a celery, kale, broccoli with miso (fermented soy bean paste) & curry powder.

And all vegetable became soften & sweet enough, I mixed all of them with blender until creamy soup.

To use spices, like cumin, cinnamon, turmeric, is essential part of this healing soup.

All spiced can effect our tired body & mind.

The green soup was very delicious and it is easy to digest.

And David & I really enjoyed this healing soup with smile.

After we ate dinner together we took a walk about 40 minuets together.

It was a nice walk after dinner and we will start to sleep for tomorrow.

To eat healthy organic foods every day can make our body and mind pure & healthy state, for sure.

David's friend who lives in Tokyo came to see his family & friends for 10 days in Seattle.

David saw him last his previous hid holiday last week.

And today his friends will fly back to Japan.

So I suggested him that we will see him off at SeaTac airport to surprise his friend.

David got his flight's information and we arrived at SeaTac airport 2 hours and a half before his departure time.

And we waited in front of the checking counter together.

But finally his friends didn't show up until the departure time.

I baked banana cupcake for his snack but it became in vain.

We couldn't see him off at SeaTac airport but we wondered how we missed him.

But we enjoyed the surprise mission together and we ate my cupcake on our return way to our home.

David and his friend have a nice friendship and I met him and his family before in Tokyo just before our honeymoon in 2012.

So just we are looking forward to seeing him and his family again someday.

And we pray his safety flight back to Tokyo...anyway.

Tofu sweets
I boiled tofu in hot water for a while.

And then I drain hot water and I put the tofu under some dishes to put out its water.

After drained tofu, I mixed organic puff rice cake, strawberries, lemon juice and maple syrup together.

It became delicious strawberry cream.

I made for David as a dessert yesterday but he suggested me that this strawberry cream will be a nice ice cream in freezer.

So I put the strawberry cream in freezer for 1 hour.

And it became soft ice cream and it was really delicious ice cream.

We couldn't help eating it together and we really liked this taste.

It was very tender sweetness for us and I want to make it with other organic fruits.

Tofu cream is very healthy desert and it really tasty!!

I had to send my passport to IRS (Department of Treasury Internal Revenue Service) to get my individual tax payer identification number in the end of last April.

Only passport is my identification in the U.S.A now.

I want to return it as soon as possible after I sent it,

After 1 month passed, IRS didn't send it back to me so I worried about it very much.

David just told me. "Just wait for a while, it will return, for sure!"

So just I waited and waited my passport back.

Yesterday my passport sent me back to our post box finally.

And it was in the normal envelope and I was surprised.

For me, my passport is very valuable thing so I sent it to IRS as a priority mail.

But IRS sent it back to me in a normal mail without security.

Do I worry about it too much??

Anyway, as David said to me, my precious passport came back to me safely so I am very very relieved to get it back.

David's CARE
Last night, David came back home sick after work.

He had a fever and ached all over his body and I really worried about him.

Today his fever was still high and he decided to take a holiday today to recover.

I decided to be his nurse at home and I bought "Konnyaku jelly" for hot compress.

This "Konnyaku jelly hot copress" is based on Japanese traditional old natural remedy and I wanted to use it for him.

Normally, Konnyaku jelly is used for eating but today I used it in a different way.

After boiling 2 Konnyaku jellies in hot water in the pan about 10 minutes, I covered it with towel.

And then I put them on his liver & under his belly button for 30 minutes.

After that I put cold towels in place for only 1 minute to cool them down.

Next I put them on his backside.

I put 2 Konnyaku Jellies on his kidneys for another 30 minutes.

These Konnyaku Jellies hot compress is useful to remove toxins from his body & to facilitate his metabolism.

Also they stimulate liver & kidneys effectively as a tonic.

In Japan, "Konnyaku Jelly" can pull out body's toxin & remove unnecessary of body.

After this Konnyaku Jelly hot compress, he seems to feel better.

He said to me, "I feel completely different and I see a clear difference in my face in the mirror."

I was very happy that my Japanese natural remedy was so effective.

And I also cooked Japanese porriage for him.

Onion and ginger are very effective foods for him today.

And I just hope that his body will recover tomorrow better than today.

Fridendly stranger
Today I took a walk as usual by myself.

And the end of my walking course, I caught up with a stranger with his dog.

I walked faster than his pace with his dog.

And sometimes he said to me "Hello" during our walking before and I met him already.

He was very friendly and started to talk to me today for the first time.

At Edmonds city, I met many strangers but mostly they said to me "Hi!" or "Hello!" when we met on the road.

So many friendly strangers are normal in this town and I don't feel any fear & worry about strangers here.

I met the man in the end of my walking course so I couldn't talk to him so much.

But he said to me, "Have a nice day!!" with lovely smile when we were apart.

And I felt just happy to talk to him with his lovely dog for the first time today...
