Banana cake
David likes to eat organic banana.

And he eats it every day but I don't like to eat organic banana like he does.

After I wait organic banana ripen well and I cook banana cake with organic buckwheat for David.

David likes the texture of buckwheat banana cake because it looks like a bread a little.

I mush ripen organic banana with a fork and add organic cinnamon powder, white sesame and a little salt for seasoning.

And I add organic coconut flakes for crispy texture and aluminum-free baking powder and organic buckwheat power and mix them all well enough.

I put all of the mixture of banana cake into some containers and bake them in a oven for a while.

And my organic banana cake become nice looking and David will enjoy it as a desert.

Well ripen organic banana has enough sweetness inside and I don't need to add any sweetness to my banana cake at all.

To make organic banana cake is very easy and simple so I want David to enjoy eating it with smile.^^

Cold April
Only 3 days remain in this April.

And this month is cold temperature every day, even spring has come already.

David says that this spring is very strange weather and spring has not coming yet.

I can feel the arrival of spring when I could watch beautiful flowers outside.

But the temperature is still cold in the morning and night and it let me feel still winter in this April.

I don't know why this spring is still so cold so I miss warmth of spring.

Sometimes sunshine can feel the warmth of spring but morning and night are still cold.

When the real spring will come in Seattle in this year??

I hope that real warmth of spring will arrive soon...^^

Sleeping well
To sleep well at night is essential to keep our body & mind healthy condition.

Even we eat healthy organic foods, without sleeping, our body & mind cannot keep good condition at all.

So every night, I want to sleep well enough and so does David.

Sometimes I wake up in the middle of night to pee and I don't want to disturb David's sleeping because of my action.

I try not to make noise as less as possible when I go to pee in the middle of night.

But sometimes he notices my movement to pee so I felt so sorry for him to disturb his sleeping.

Especially from 10:00 p.m to 2:00 a.m is the most important time to sleep well & deep for our body and it is called "GOLDEN TIME" for sleep.

These 4 hours is very precious time to secrete important hormones of our internal organs and it can recover our body condition during sleeping.

Sometimes David's work schedule needs to work late at night but I want him to sleep as soon as possible after his work.

To remove his fatigue by sleeping well enough at night is my wish every day because his healthy body is very important for both of us to live longer together.

Anyway to sleep well every single night is very precious for us so I want to sleep deeply enough to welcome new day for tomorrow.

Brussels sporuts
In April, organic Brussels sprouts are sold at a supermarket and David & I really love to eat them.

In spring season, many kinds of organic spring vegetables are sold and they looks so delicious.

David found a bag of organic Brussels sprouts at the cheapest price before and he bought it before it is sold out.

And the Brussels sprouts can keep fresh long and I use it little by little for our meals.

I like to cook Brussels sprout simply and I steamed it in a pan.

And after they became soft, I left them outside to cook down.

I added some seasoning to eat Brussels sprouts and I made hand-made Chiniese chill oil to use organic sesame oil, garlic, ginger, soy source and chill pepper.

And this Chinese chill source is very good combination for organic vegetables to eat simple way.

Of course, steamed Brussels sprouts is very delicious to eat with my hand-made Chinese chill source and David really loves it.

I am so happy that I can eat organic delicious vegetables in Seattle every day.

Especially, I really love to eat fresh & seasonal vegetables and fruits and I am so lucky to eat them at cheaper price than Japan.

In Japan, I cannot find organic Brussels sprouts and I am so thankful to eat them here in Seattle in spring season now.

I hope that you can enjoy fresh & seasonal vegetables which you like...^^

Cotton pad
Whenever I become a period every month, I use cotton pad for my body from my age of 34.

My friend suggested me to use cotton pad for period and I didn't know how great cotton pad can influence to my body.

When I was taught about period when I was a child, only I had a choice to use a sanitary napkin as usual as normal women uses.

And after I started to use cotton napkin for my period, I could check my menstrual blood when I wash it by my hand.

Also when I use cotton pad for my period, my body became to control my menstrual blood when I pee.

My body became to change to control my menstrual blood and my cotton pad is so comfortable to use that I don't want to use sanitary napkins anymore.

If I ate something different from usual my diet, my menstrual blood changed and it was good to check it by my body's reaction.

I made my cotton pad by myself and it is made in organic cotton, so my hand-made cotton pads are so nice feeling to my body.

In Seattle, only sanitary napkins sell in a drug store and no one knows how wonderful cotton pads to use for period.

So someday, I want to expand the user of cotton pads not sanitary napkins, because cotton pads is much better for all women body, for sure...^^

Dried mushroom
Until last year, COSTCO sells normal mushroom but in this year, it started to sell organic mushroom fortunately.

And David & I love to eat organic mushroom so we bought it for meals.

David like to eat organic mushroom as raw in a salad but sometimes I use it for cooking and he loves it, too.

And sometimes I made organic mushroom dry out under the sunshine to make it increase more nutrition.

After dried mushroom can increase nutrition more than raw but it became smaller than before dried.

In Japan, dried mushroom and vegetables are popular to make them increase more nutrition to keep it longer.

So I made dried mushroom last week and sometimes I use it for cooking.

I like to eat raw organic mushroom but dried one can add chewy texture to my cooking and David loved it, too.

Anyway, I am happy to eat organic mushroom in Seattle and now we can get it cheaper than before in COSTCO.

These days, it is not good weather with clouds and rain so it is not best timing to make dried mushroom.

So I am waiting for sunny weather to make dried mushroom and vegetables again...^^

Coconut milk!
Last week, we got an organic coconut milk on sale.

So I wanted to use for my cooking to make Thai curry with the coconut milk.

The taste of coconut milk reminds me Thai curry and David misses the taste of Thai foods.

And today is David' Friday (the day before his holiday), so I made coconut curry for his dinner.

I chopped organic onion, celery, carrot and tomato and I added chopped garlic and ginger to bake all of these vegetables.

And I put on organic curry powder, coriander seeds, cumin seeds, turmeric powder, cayenne pepper, cinnamon powder
and black pepper as seasoning my curry at first.

I used organic white miso (fermented beans paste) and red miso to add salty & mild taste to my curry and baked all of them for a while.

And I put on organic mushrooms after all vegetables became soft and keep baked them a little more.

Finally I opened the can of organic coconut milk but it was separated water and milk inside.

So I mixed inside of the can to mix the coconut milk well and I added it into my curry mixture.

The smell of curry became Thai taste and it was so nice flavor.

I don't want to use too much coconut milk because the fat of coconut milk is so much amount inside.

Anyway the looks of my Thai curry became nice looking and I want David to enjoy it later after his working.

I cooked another side menu of his dinner with organic vegetables and they became nice curry plate for him finally.

I hope that he will love the taste of Thai curry with smile...^^

Laughing power!^^
Laughing has so much power to make our body & mind cheerful and lift up naturally.

And also only laughing time half an hour every single day can heal serious disease which all doctors gave up to cure in a history.

Scientist shows the result about the influence of laughing can our body's immune system can make strong by scientific experiments already.

So I want to laugh every single day as much as possible for our body & mind to keep healthy condition.

In this morning, David did normal things for him but it was so fun for us that we could laugh very hard together.

His routine made him doing his usual things but he forgot something to do and it was not only 1 time today but 3 times happened.

So we laughed so hard about his unconscious behavior that we laughed so much until our stomach felt pain because too much laughing.

But after laughing so much together, we could feel so much cheerful energy inside to start new day today.

And we realized how precious we need to laugh every day like today from now on.

Sometimes we tend to forget laughing but we can find the point to laugh anyhow.

Every day looks very similar with other days but no one is not exactly as same as the others days at all.

Because everything is changing around this world every single moment and I need to be careful the difference.

It is easy to spend today as usual as other days are but I want to cherish this new day as a brand new day with fresh feeling.

Also laughing together to start new day is so wonderful for us that we found our positive energy inside together after we could laughed in this morning.

How about you today??

Did you laugh today with smile & cheerful energy?

I hope that you can laugh today as much as possible for your body & mind naturally.^^

LOVE IS...??
Last week, I read my favorite book again to remind important message of the book.

The book is written about how to live as a physical level, emotional level and spiritual level to make our life be better.

The book told me how to live as a spiritual level to make our soul learn & polish in this life.

I am completely agree with this book's theory about way of living and some part of this book can make me realize how to handle my situation of life with unconditional love as well as possible.

Love needs to use for the direction for truth and heart not to from the brain's thinking.

And love is not to control & change someone for the direction which I want.

Also love needs to accept all situation even it is not comfortable for me and it is not exactly same of my thinking, I believe.

Sometimes I tend to think by myself and it will not good for me, so I try to read this precious book to remember my precious method to live simply & comfortably.

After I read this book, I could learn a lot how to love unconditionally with deep & wide acceptance again.

To make my spirit grow up more & better than previous life, I might choice this life.

And to love someone is not so easy sometimes for me that I will be able to learn everything from all my happening in life from now on.

And I want to be better myself with benevolence and peace today better than yesterday.

David gives me positive thinking and tries to love me better & more than before.

And I am so thankful his love and existence that I was the depth of terrible feeling before to facilitate myself uplift with his passion.

Anyway love has great energy to circulate our energy inside each other so I want to do my best for him in return as much as possible...

How is your day??

I wish that your love is filled with yourself inside to let someone be happy!!^^

Communication with honesty
Today, David and I started our day with bad mood at the begging of day.

And we started to take a walk together on the beach side but we couldn't walk together at all.

We walked at a different pace by self and we could finish walking at our parking place which David parked his car near the beach.

Something wrong happened to us inside or our hearts but we couldn't find any solution until we came back to home after our walking.

I suggested him to write down 3 topics on a paper how to focus on each heart to recover our relationship and to fix our feeling.

David looked not good feeling at the begging of the writing still, but I prayed that this writing method would help us anyhow.

This writing method is called, "NAIKAN (in Japanese)"="Introspection" and it is based on psychological approach for each heart to find our really needs of mind.

After we finished writing, we started to share with each writing and communicate each other to understand more & better.

And suddenly, my tears came out from my both eyes and it couldn't help stopping at all.

I don't know what happened to my heart but David's message moved me inside deeply and my heart needed to cry with tears.

And I communicate with David with honesty and pure heart and we could understand each other more than before.

Our bad situation of this morning was over and it meant to happen to us to communicate each other later.

After my tears stopped enough I cried a lot, I felt clearer than before inside of my heart.

And David went to work after our deep communication and we had better feeling each other to fix our bad mood with honest communication.

To communicate each other with honesty is essential part of our marriage life.

But sometimes I became so be afraid that my words might be hurt David unconsciously, so I don't want to talk to him with noble silence.

To keep so long silence is not good for David and I will try sharing my heart more than before, because I learned a lot today.

Anyway, I want to be more better myself to learn my life with David.

Sometimes we will have a hard time but we need to communicate more than before not to misunderstand each other again...
