The end of MAY
Today is the end of day of MAY.

Time has passed so quickly that I cannot believe...

Only 7 months in this year remain.

Today it became nice weather with sunshine.

There is no clouds at all in the sky and it is very beautiful clear blue sky.

On David's holiday, we went to a library to borrow my Japanese books and some DVDs.

David found a Japanese animation DVD fortunately.

I told the story about it before and he remembered it.

The DAD is "PONYO" made by Mr. HAYAO MIYAZAKI and it is very famous in Japan.

I watched it before in JAPAN and the main song is very cute and I sang David before.

Anyway David borrowed the DVD so we are very looking forward to watchin it together!!

Already 5 months in this year passed and I am thinking how to spend the rest of this year with David.

In this week, it will be hotter than last week so real summer season will come day by day...

I wish that this summer will not be so hot if possible...^^

Memorial day!
Today is holiday for "Memorial Day".

This holiday for respect & gratitude for all American soldiers.

David taught me, "Today is Memorial day and everyone will take a rest at home so today will be silent."

Actually today, many shops are closed for this holiday and many houses decorate an American flag for Memorial day.

But I am not familiar with this holiday at all...

Fortunately today is David's holiday, too.

So I am happy with him today, too.

In the U.S.A., national holidays are very less than Japan.

So today's holiday looks very special for American.

To thank for all American soldiers with respect is very normal for David, so I am learning about it a little today.

Today is Sunday but it is not good weather with heavy clouds.

David looks not good with this bad weather on his holiday.

And most libraries in this county is open from 1 p.m. on every Sunday.

In his holiday, I asked him to take me a library to borrow Japanese books.

But on Sunday, I have to wait to be open in the afternoon.

To be with David on his holiday is wonderful time for me.

And he looks very happy in his holiday and I am happy to watch his happy face.

I wonder what kinds of foods I will cook for his dinner tonight.

But he wanted to eat organic pizza for tonight's dinner because he has not eaten it for while.

To eat his favorite organic pizza can give me a holiday because I don't need to cook for him except for his salad.

And he asked me to make a big salad for his pizza so I will cook a big salad with my love for him today.

Anyway today is happy day with David on his holiday.

And I am very thankful for his love today, too!! ^^

Rain again><
Today it was not nice day with heavy clouds today again.

And it was cold with rain.

Recently not good weather has kept for a while and today it began to rain again.

Soon May will be over...

Tomorrow is David's holiday and he really wants his holiday be sunny days.

But tomorrow's forecast is not good weather as he wishes so he will be disappoint it so much.

For his FRIDAY (just before day of his holiday), I usually cook organic vegetable curry for his dinner.

I want him to remove his all fatigue of his work by lots of organic spices of curry as much as possible.

He likes my curry always and I hope that he will love my curry tonight again.

Today he went to work earlier than usual so I hope he will able to come back to home earlier than usual.

Anyway I want him to enjoy his holiday tomorrow even the weather is not good for him. ^^

cloudy days
Recently it has been cloudy days with heavy clouds.

Also today, it is cloudy all day long.

Only a little, sunshine came out from the clouds but again it became cloudy weather.

In this week, mostly it has been cloudy.

To become hot with sunshine is not good for me but too continual cloudy days are good for me, either.

Where is sunshine??

David & I are caring for organic herbs and a few salad leaves in some planters to grow them up.

But less sunshine can make them grow up well enough these days.

So not only for me but also for all plants and herbs need more sunshine as much as possible.

To feel the warmth of sunshine can make me cheer up and make plants & herbs grow up more.

So I hope that beautiful sunshine will show up again tomorrow!

I really love the taste of cilantro.

And we can buy organic cilantro at supermarket.

It is cheap!!

The bunch of organic cilantro is selling about 1 dollar, it is unbelievable price!

I really love it and it is good for health, too.

The taste of cilantro is very unique and some people didn't like the taste and smell at all.

To put on some cilantro in the salad, it can become nice flavor.

In Japan, I cannot buy organic cilantro so now I can eat it as is very lucky for me.

Anyway the taste of cilantro let me remember the taste of Thailand and Vietnam food.

To eat cilantro can let me remind of its taste and it is very delicious!! ^^

Noisy neighborhood
At the beginning of this month, our neighborhood moved into our next room.

His car is parking in front of our building.

Always he started to drive with a big noise of engine of his car.

Maybe his car was arranged to make a big noise of engine when start to engine.

For me the sound of engine is completely noise.

Little by little, I got to understand how the new neighborhood's life style is.

Before his holiday of weekend, he usually went to somewhere late at night.

Of course whenever the car started, the big noise of engine disturbed our sleeping.

I cannot complain his hobby about his car, but it can annoy our silent sleeping at night.

I hope that he will sell the noisy car or we will move somewhere else more silent than here...><

organic nuts
At our favorite supermarket, only we could get organic cashew nuts before.

But recently I found organic almonds and walnuts so we could become to get them.

At COSTCO, sometimes we could get organic pistachio nuts but not always we could find there.

Organic nuts are very expensive but they are very delicious more than non-organic ones.

David & I think that organic nuts are worth to pay a little more than non-organic products.

We don't eat organic nuts so much every day so we can enjoy them little by little.

To eat nuts are very important for us to get nice vitamins and fat instead of animal products.

Nuts are very healthy foods and they provides us very nice flavor and nutrition for us.

In Japan, organic nuts are more expensive than in Seattle because most of them are imported from abroad.

I am very thankful for David that we can eat healthy organic nuts as usual...

I really appreciate with David's love for me every day...^^

I tried to cook another burdock again today.

The new burdock which David got at the supermarket looks like a turnip but inside was like a Japanese burdock.

I cooked it with organic garlic, ginger, hot chill pepper and miso.

And this time, the burdock was not bitter at all and it cooked well.

My revenger cooking for new burdock was succeed.

And David tried to taste it for a dinner and he really liked it.

I am happy to know his delicious smile and I am glad for my revenge of new burdock again today.

But the new burdock was round shape and it didn't look like Japanese burdock at all.

The new burdock in Seattle is a new type of burdock, maybe....

Anyway I am very happy to cook it better than yesterday!! ^^

Bittet burdock
A few days ago, David bought an organic burdock.

I thought that the burdock is winter season's vegetable in Japan but not it is selling.

So I cooked it in Japanese style today.

I cut an organic burdock and baked it in a pan with garlic and miso.

I tried to taste it a little bit but I felt something bitter in it.

I wonder that maybe my tongue was wrong so I asked David try it.

And he said it was bitter, too.

Did I cook it wrong or is there something bad of this burdock originally??

David went to the same supermarket and told the burdock's taste was wrong with the receipt.

And the shop staff gave him a new burdock again.

How kind the stuff of the supermarket was!!

But another burdock is completely different shape from the normal one.

I wonder whether it is real burdock or is round shape like a turnip.><

Anyway the previous burdock meal was too bitter to eat so I threw it away as a garbage unfortunately.

I will try to cook another burdock again tomorrow as a revenge!!

I hope that another burdock will be nice taste as much as possible...^^
