Hi, How was your day? Today was the last day of November, wasn't it? I feel "Time flies" always. Actually,I'm on medication for my cough yet. And I noticed that coffee is an indicator of my health. Because I liked having coffee very much before, but I don't want to have coffee now. So, I have black tea a lot these days. How about you? What is the indicator of your health?
By the way, do you know this tea brand? TWG tea came from Singapore. I got it from my friend the other day. That flavor was so wonderful. I love it.
Hi, thanks for coming to my blog always. Do you like buckwheat noodles? I like it, but buckwheat noodles I ate at home were not so good until now. So, I bought the bamboo work and handmade buckwheat noodles at the nice shops in Togakushi. And we enjoyed eating buckwheat noodles for lunch at home. It was so delicious! I think there are two good reasons. One was to use the good handmade buckwheat noodles. Another one was to use the bamboo work's plates. Oh, one more reason, we ate it with grated yam. Yummy, and I felt happy!

Have you ever made Umeboshi? Actually I made Umeboshi this year for the first time. I had the chance to preserve fresh Ume in salt with my English teacher at her house this summer. It was really fun!

I attended wedding ceremony for my niece today. She became a charming and wise lady now. I remembered many memories of her childhood and I was moved to tears by the wonderful ceremony. Not only me, but every attendants felt very happy. I wish my niece and her husband are in the great happiness for ever.
Hi, how was your day? Today I woke up at 6 a.m ,did my regular house work, and then, went to the English conversation school.
I have been useing the reading glass recently, though I don't need it to read news paper. And I used it to read a text book at the English lesson today.
And I like these design and color. Besides their each costs about 1,500 yen. It's a reasonable price, isn't it? The pretty color and the cheap price make me happy! hahaha. Anyway, these are useful to me now! Yes, I should study English more and more!!

Have you ever drunk burdock tea? It was very popular a few years ago in Japan. Because a doctor told burdock tea is so good for anti-aging. I'm not sure it is true or not. But,my mother has been making it, and she continues to drink it. And she has good health and beauty though she is seventy five years old. Anyway, burdock has a lot of dietary fiber, so it is healthy tea surely. And I like the smell of her handmade burdock tea. It's delicious!
Yesterday, I competed in a charity marathon with my husband and friends for the first time. The weather was perfect for marathon, and I enjoyed running around National Stadium and Meijijingu Gaien. I entried 5kilometer run and I took 38 minutes to finish. About 9,000 people joined this charity marathon. And I was impressed with this event is managed by many volunteers. By the way, National Stadium will be rebuilded for Tokyo Olympic 2020 as you know. So, I was very happy to run on the track of this stadium! I felt like an athlete:)
FIT for Charity Runが、全てボランティアによって運営されていることにも感動でした！
These are pictures I took by iPhone this year. Today's theme is leaves. I like walking in woods and looking at trees or leaves. I feel relaxed when I stayed in woods. The wind feels good to my body. And the trees always have a dignified air. Yeah, woods makes me happy though I don't know why. I feel happy if you enjoy seeing them.
I'm interested in finding and eating rare vegetables. Have you ever eaten fresh black soybeans? I eat dry black soybeans(kuromame)sometimes. But I ate fresh black soybeans like this picture for the first time. It's really a seasonable vegetable. I boiled them with salt water. These were soft and delicious though looks are not good. Besides, black soybeans have a lot of polyphenol. So, they will help our health.
I joined an event "SEED EXCHANGE in TOKYO" Mr.John Moore held yesterday. It's the event to exchange native seeds. I've grown some vegetables at my veranda since about one and a half year ago. These are almost of vegetables from native seeds. And I get some native seeds from vegetables I grew. This cycle is very important for plants. Do you know many plants and native seeds are in danger of becoming extinct in the world? Even daizu we eat as daily food in Japan,we have only a little native beans. We have to save Japanese traditional taste for the next generation. What do you think? I want you to think about your food, vegetables and seeds. For your family, friends, lovely kids and our planet.
This event was held at a nice organic restaurant. So, we enjoyed exchanging other seeds with eating and talking together. It was really fun! Yeah, we had a wonderful time!! And I'll continue this activity with fun and hope!；）
These are seeds I brought and exchanged at the event yesterday. 昨日私が持参した種と交換して持ち帰った種たち

Hi, thanks for coming to my blog. How was your weekend? I went to Togakushi in Nagano prefecture with my husband. Togakushi is one of our favorite place. There are grand nature, famous shrine and many soba noodle shops. We enjoyed walking, bird watching in woods and eating new soba noodles because it's the season of new buckwheat. The weather was perfect, and the spiritual atmosphere relaxed me. So I'd like to show you some pictures today. I'm happy if you enjoy seeing them. Thank you.
