The Indicator of My Health  健康のバロメーター

Posted by mittanr on   2 comments

もう11月最終日。早いですね~
ところで、皆さんの健康のバロメーターって何ですか?
私の場合は、コーヒー。
以前は毎日必ず飲んでいたコーヒーですが、
風邪をひいて以降ここ二か月近くは、紅茶ばかり飲んでいます。

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.



友人から頂いたシンガポール生まれのTWGが最近のお気に入り♪

以前のようにコーヒーが恋しくなったら、完全復活ってことなのかなぁ。。

Bamboo work & Buckwheat noodles 竹細工とお蕎麦

Posted by mittanr on   2 comments

戸隠にて購入した竹細工と蕎麦麺で、おうち蕎麦ランチ♪
やっぱり、ざる蕎麦はざるにのせないとネ(^^)/

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!

Do you like Umeboshi?
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!
And we brought it to each home, continued to make Umeboshi.
It took about three months and completed

We each brought them home and let them sit for 3 months and then they were ready to eat.

The other day, I made small rice balls with my umeboshi.

First, I boiled the rice with one umeboshi in a rice cooker.
Next, add small dried fishes and sesames in the umeboshi rice, and mix.
Next, added small dried fish and sesame seeds in the umeboshi rice, and mixed.
Then, make rice ball
Then, made rice balls.
Finally, wrap them with shiso(green perilla)
Finally, wrapped them with shiso(green perilla).

It was good!
If you like shiso, try to use shiso instead of nori for rice balls.



梅干しおにりぎの作り方の部分は、レシピのつもりで書いたので現在形にしたのですが、
この場合は、やはり過去形にしないとオカシイですね。
うっかりミスも多くて恥ずかしいのですが、細かいところまで、アドバイスしていただき感激でした(^^)/

最近、使用頻度が高くなってきたお気に入りのリーディンググラス。

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!!




いわゆる老眼鏡ですが・・・
可愛くて、しかも安くって、気分をあげてくれるのですよ(*^_^*)

Burdock Tea ゴボウ茶

Posted by mittanr on   2 comments   0 trackback

ゴボウ茶がブレイクしたのは、もう2,3年前になるでしょうか?

Hi, Thanks for coming to my blog always.

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!



これは、とても香りの良い母手作りのゴボウ茶。
今でも飲み続けている母は、やっぱりとても元気で若々しいです。
いずれにしても、食物繊維が豊富なゴボウは、体に良いと言えますね。



FIT for Charity Run  チャリティーマラソン初参加!

Posted by mittanr on   2 comments

昨日、初めてチャリティーマラソンに参加しました♪
2020年の東京オリンピック開催に向け取り壊されることが決まっている
国立競技場のトラックを最初で最後のラン!アスリート気分になれました(^^)/

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:)



私は国立競技場をスタートして神宮外苑を2周する5キロランにエントリー、38分でゴールしました!



参加者は子供から大人まで合わせて約9000人!爽やかな快晴で最高のマラソン日和に感謝です。 



国立競技場の聖火台も見納めだなぁ。 ここで数々のドラマが生まれたのですね~

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!



Leaves 2013

Posted by mittanr on   2 comments

11月も半ばを過ぎると、そろそろ気忙しくなってきますね。
iPhoneで撮った写真の整理をしながら、目に止まったものを葉っぱをテーマに集めました。
もう今年も一年を振り返る季節になってきたのですね~

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.













山や森は、誰に対しても平等で、分け隔てなく接してくれます。
その中にいると、そのままの自分を受け入れてもらえる気がします。
優しい風が体の中に入っていくのをいつも感じます。
ありのまま動じることなく生きている木々たちを見ていると、なぜか元気になれるのです。



Fresh Black Soybeans 黒枝豆

Posted by mittanr on   2 comments

黒枝豆、食べたことありますか?

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.



先日、初めて、黒い枝豆に出会いました。
見た目はあまり良くないけれど、塩茹でにしたら、ほっこりねっとりでとても美味しかったです。
黒い色にはポリフェノールの一種アントシアニンが含まれていて、抗酸化作用効果も期待できますよ♪


SEED EXCHANGE in TOKYO 在来種のたねの交換会

Posted by mittanr on   2 comments

昨日は、John Moore氏主催のイベントSEED EXCHANGE (在来種のたねの交換会)に
参加しました♪

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!;)

あなたの家族のために、友達のために、子供たちのために、地球のために、
食べ物のこと、植物のこと、その種のことを考えてほしい。
豆腐や納豆、味噌、醤油など日本食に欠かせない大豆さえも、
国産のものは、たったの5%、しかも品種改良されていない在来種の大豆は
このままでは絶滅してしまうと言われています。
本物の味を次世代に残すために、伝えるために、私にできる活動に参加しています。
もちろん楽しみながら、そして希望を持って(^^)


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


I brought my seeds I got at my veranda this year to this event.
If you'd like to know about the seeds, please visit my another blog.

スピリチュアルスポット戸隠へ行ってきました。

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.

And if you'd like to know some soba shops, please visit my another blog.
