My friend's birthday

Today was one of my friend birthday, and I made lunch and dinner for him, and it was not much thing. However, my friend was happy that I made lunch and dinner for his birthday. ahaha Well, I can not do anything other than that anyway. lol. I know I should do different thing, but I can not do anything other than that. I cook Tonkatsu and curry for lunch and dinner. Tonkatsu for Lunch and dinner for curry, but I made it when I was cooking lunch. So I don't have to make twice... :-) Oh... that makes me lazy.... lol Well, that is ok for making once for two meals, because that way I can save energy and other things. Well, I think I just being happy for myself today and trying make my friend happy. So I don't have anything bad happen. I think.
(今日は友達の誕生日でした。そして友達の誕生日ということもあって昼食と夕食の両方を作ることにしました。誕生日なので友達の一番好きなものを作ろうかと思って考えましたが、何をすればよいかわからないという状況で。。。どうしようかと悩んだのですが。。やっぱりこれだ!というもで定番?かもしれないのですが、カレーとトンカツになりました。一応アメリカ人の友達なので日本食というだけでもうれしいかもと思いました。アハハ。昼食と夕食を昼食にまとめて作ってしまいました。こうすることで楽できる~!というのもありますが、そうすることでよりよく節約できるということも考えました。友達には失礼。でも、楽しい気分でいる自分が友達を楽しませれればと思いました。)

ONE DAY

I am trying to find out what I can do for these days... I was kind of getting tired of some situation and so on. I am trying and trying to get out of some negative way. Well, I am just thinking that one day, one day I will have a good day and will change my life and situation. I know it is not impossible thing to do... Well, I am trying as much as I can and hopefully I will have a good day tomorrow and better than day before or today! I guess that I just do my best everyday and hopefully one day what I did was a good thing.

I was surprised when I saw my iPhone

I saw this morning, I was surprised that I see several places have different winter storm weather, and I was not sure what to think that was. I think one place had icy weather and some place had snow with rain. In Greenville, NC we had little bit rain and maybe almost all we had cloudy. So Well but you can see that below pictures that Tuesday and Wednesday will be a good warm weather but on Thursday we have cold weather again! That's so funny and that makes people to have easy to get sick. I will extra careful for this kind of weather! Because I usually get some kind of sickness after all. Well, I will get warm my blanket and dogs around me to have a good room temp. ahaha.

I got cold and getting badly but I am trying to get better today so I will have a good week start tomorrow. Well, if my cold is not gone by tonight, I need to take another medication and hopefully in the morning of Monday I will be ok. I usually not tried or anything for those days but when I get a cold, I am not good condition. Well, I am just worried that I will get some bad health condition. Oh well if I get a lot of rest, I should be ok!?! I just need to get some rest sometime. Ahaha.

Too cold to be outside!

It's a Saturday and I would like to play with my dogs but I got cold and it is way too cold to go outside with my dogs so I decided to stay in my bed and sleep for little bit and hopefully get warm tomorrow or so. I was trying to rest from these days way too active. lol. Oh yeah, I am going to have a very good rest time today and tomorrow if it is possible. I am hopping that I will have a good warm day soon!

Washington DC

I went to Washington DC to get my renew passport today, and it was after President Obama inauguration week. So I was little bit worried that it might have many people, but when I went to there not that many people were there. Seems like it was a normal day of Washington DC. Anyway, when I get my passport, I was kind of excited that what I can see for Authority place written. The Authority was "Embassy of Japan in the United States of America" which is not like Chicago where it said "Consulate-General of Japan at Chicago". So I was really excited to see that however I was little bit disappointed that where it was issued for written was Kanji not place where it was... Well, it is a nice thing that I can get from some other places.  I will post my passport after I made little bit change my picture this weekend or so..... ahaha
(今日はワシントンDCに新しくなったパソポートを受け取りにきました。でも、すこし心配していたことがありました。なぜなら21日にオバマ大統領の就任式があったばかりなのでいつもよりも人が多い?かもしれないと思っていたからです。しかし、普段と変わらない感じのワシントンDCでした。まぁ、もうイベントも終わって数日がたったというのもありそうなんだと思います。それはともかく新しいパスポートをもらうことにうきうきしていました。なぜなら日本で発行してもらうのと違うところがあるからです。しかも今回は発行官庁がアメリカ合衆国日本大使館です。発行官庁には「EMBASSY OF JAPAN IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA」と書いてありました。シカゴとかとちがい領事館ではなく大使館なのでかっこいいなぁと思っていました。ちょっとショックだったのは交付官庁のところがCHICAGOなどと書いてなく日本語で「在衆大」と書いてあったことですが、それ以外はとても嬉しいと思うことでいっぱいでした。あとで写真を加工してからここのブログにのせようかと思っています。)

January 22nd

Today is not much going on right now, because it was long day off weekend since we had Martin Luther King holiday on January 21st, 2013. So just start this week and not much going on really. I guess that is why I am little bit lazy than usual. lol Well, it is better that not too busy or not making me stressed out. I need to have like this kind of day more and more sometime. I guess it is not necessary that I have like this but it is a nice day to have me like this.
(今日はあまり忙しくない日になりました。まぁ実をいうと昨日まで休日などでお休みだったのもありゆっくりとした時間で進んでいる気がします。マーティンルーサーキング牧師の休日が昨日だったのもあり週末が長かったのです。まぁ忙しくない日があるのもいいことかもしれないですね。でも、時にはストレスなどをためないようにするのもいいのかもしれないですが。。。今日はこんな風にゆっくりとした一日を過ごすことなりそうです。)

Monday, January 21, 2013

It was a great that I had been able to watch President Obama's inauguration this morning, but I didn't watch his parade in the afternoon. Because I was doing some research during that time and driving to go somewhere after that. However, I saw that all of his process of inauguration that is important than watching his parade. ahaha.

here is pictures.

I guess I will try to watch it when I can during morning and so on. I am hopping that I can see it as long as I can. ahaha. See that I don't have much to talk about something here right now. So I am quit today's blog.

Saturday

Actually, I went to different place and away from Greenville, NC today. I was little bit go away my stressed from what I had, and I think I will have a good break from what I have mind. Well, it is a nice that I can be away from where I am. Oh yeah, it is a good break from Greenville. But this will be not last one I hope! Oh! I will be away from Greenville, NC on January 23rd. Because I need to get things from different place! I hope that one will be a fun and have a great trip!
(今日はグリーンビルから離れてちょっと違う街に行っていました。まぁ少しは気晴らしになってストレスがどこかにいった気がします。色々と考えてると息が詰まりそうな時がいっぱいありますが、こうやって息抜きをすることは大切なんだと思いました。まぁ、これが最後というわけではないのですがね。1月23日はいろいろと忙しくなりそうです。ちょっと出かけるというのもあるのですが、それで楽しい1日を過ごせるといいなぁと思っています。)

It's a nice thing that I have been not really busy one of the week, but I guess I was looking for something to research and so on, but I found that I wanted to post here some video from what I have. I even didn't think that I can post here. lol Well, it is a nice that I can post video, picture, and so on.

It's cold all day long... So hopping we will get some snow.

(今日はここら付近の天気予報でなんと雪が降るかもしれないというのです。ここ数日はすごく暖かかったので雪なんてふるような感じではなかったのです。なのでちょっとだけ嬉しい気持ちにもなりましたが、まだまだ雪が降るような天気ではないようなきがします。アハハ。でも、雪が降るなら今夜が一番チャンスみたいです。今日はあまり書く事もないのでまた明日はいろいろとかける事を書こうと思います。もし雪が降ったらすごく楽しいですね。しかし!寒い!今日は一日に寒いようです。)

Tired (疲れた)

今日は疲れていて結構色々とできませんでした。
ブログの更新もやり損ねるところでした。

It was cold morning..

I was trying to cook morning and making breakfast, but it was little bit cold. Well, I made small breakfast, but I didn't even think and take picture... lol However, after that I ate a slide of cake and took a picture. It was a good cake what I like to eat. Well, I made it. I use Fire King Jadeite Shell dessert dish and coffee cup to drink coffee. This cake is called Hummingbird Cake. It does not have Hummingbird inside, and I don't know why it called Hummingbird cake, but I guess whoever made first the person called that cake name is that way.

I had late dinner and alone eating. I didn't think what I wanted to eat, but I had some of left over from yesterday. So I decided to use that to eat dinner. So I actually cook rice only. Oh how lazy is that. Well, I had feel lazy today some reason. So I decided to use left over, and it won't be get bad anyway. Oh oh oh, I cook miso soup too. I almost forgot that. This time I use Fire King Azurite Charm dishes. It's a nice dishes to use because it is square and easy to set up teable as it is. Also, it is not circle like others, so it can be make smaller space to put all dishes. ahaha. I like this charm series for this Fire King. I hope everyone is having a great weekend!
(今夜は夕食を一人で食べました。久々に一人でゆっくりと食べる夕食でしたが、やっぱり寂しいものですね。まぁ、夕食は何を食べるかとか考えていなかったので昨日の残り物をつかって食べることにしました。毎日毎日作って食べるのは大変だと思うのでこんな日があってもいいのかと思います。でも、怠け者?かなぁ。。と思ってしまったり。まぁ、腐らせてしまうよりはいいのかとおもいますね。ファイヤーキングのアズライトチャームを使いました。これらは一番使いやいというか並べやすいお皿です。正方形というのが並べやすいところですね。アハハ。このチャームシリーズはやはりファイヤーキングの中でも使いやすいものの中に入ると思います。なんちゃって。)

I Had A Great Dinner Last Night

I cooked dinner last night, and I am trying to find a good picture to take before I eat dinner. I wasn't sure what I can do. I tried to make better looks picture. Well, I haven't post much what I make and eat and/or using Fire King dishes those days. So I thought that why not to post today.  I ate menu was salad, Salmon Sushi rice, coffee, miso soup, and fired vegetable with beef. I made a lot of food but it was not much after I start eating... but after I ate, I was really really full. So I thought that I should eat less start tomorrow. Oh well, I think I will eat today sometime for dessert for Hummingbird Cake sometime. For dinner, I used Fire King Azurite Swirl dishes. It looked really nice and better taste. I usually use Fire King for my meal dishes, but I am hopping to cook better sometime later. ahaha.
(昨夜の夕食をつくりました。そして、夕食を食べる前の風景を撮ろうと思いいろいろとやってみたんですが何気に撮影できなくてこれでいいかという写真だけ撮れましたがどうにかこうにかなるかと納得しました。それはともかく今思っているのはファイヤーキングのお皿を使って食事をしている所をこの頃は載せていなかったなぁと思い今日は載せようと思いました。昨夜の献立はサケずし、サラダ、肉野菜炒め、お味噌汁、そしてコーヒーでした。結構いっぱい作ったようでそこまでなかったなぁと思ってみていました。しかし。。。食べ終わったらお腹いっぱいになってこれ以上食べれない!と思ってしまいました。食べ過ぎ!という事ですね。食べた終わった時に明日からは少し少なめにご飯作ったり食べたりしようと思ってしまいました。アハハ。でも、たぶんもう少ししたら、ハミングバードケーキを食べるかもしれないとは思っています。あ、そうだ夕食に使用した食器はファイヤーキングのアズライトスワールです。このお皿は一番のお気に入りです。まぁ、いつもファイヤーキングのお皿を使っています。もっとおいしい料理を作れる様になるといいなぁと考えています。)

Cut My Hair

Today, actually I cut my hair short as I can. Well, I like to have my hair little bit longer than I have now, but I cut my hair shorter. So now, my hair is really short.... I haven't cut my hair since August, 2012 to now. So my hair was really long and I didn't like that any at all... I mean I don't like my hair is too long! I guess that was ok, but looks like I was older than I should be... (maybe). Well, now I have shorter hair and looks like I am getting younger again! lol I am kind of like to have longer than what I have for hair, but it will grow and will be long again several months after. I will post that my hair before and after. I am sure looking at that would be fun.? Maybe? Ahaha. Today is the Friday in the US and it's a good thing that we have Friday and will be weekend again after New Year's Day. However, I am not sure what I am going to do this weekend, maybe stay in home and doing some looking and searching stuff. Hopefully, I will be not lazy. I maybe clean some of places like desk, my room book shell and so on.
(今日は自分の髪を切りました。結構長くなってしまって、ちょっとウザかったので切ろうと思ったときに切るのが一番だと思い、思い切ってきりました。まぁ、切ってしまったらとても短くなってしまって今度は切りすぎた?!感じが。。。でも、2012年8月以来髪を切っていなかったので、ちょうどいい機会かもしれないと思いました。髪が長いのはあまり好きなほうではないので、髪が長くなると嫌だなぁと気になってきたりしました。まぁ、見た目が変だということではなかったので大丈夫かと思いましたが。。。でも、見た目が少し年より上に感じるかもと思っていました。まぁ、切ったら今度は若返った感じでまぁまぁですね。ちょっと短くなりすぎでもう少し長いほうが良かったかもと思っていますが、まぁ髪はそのうち伸びてくるしいいか!と考えました。ここに髪を切る前と切った後の写真を載せようかと思います。たぶんおもしろいので。。。アハハ。今日は金曜日ということもありやはりゆっくりとできそうです。新年の元日だけ休みのアメリカなので週末がこんなに早く来ればゆっくりと過ごす人が多いのかもしれないですね。しかしながら、自分は今週末何をしようかと思っています。たぶん、家にいてゆっくりといろいろなことを探したり、部屋の掃除などをしたりと有意義に過ごせればと思っています。)

Here is before my hair was cutting.
this is before my hair was cutting.... like few hours before
 Here is after my hair was cutting
This is after my hair was cutting.... and I took with my dog(HANA)
I look like I was happy after I cut hair, but it was not really happy. Just taking picture with my dog made me happy and smile like that. My dog is so cute and I really like her.
(なぜか見た目が髪を切った後の方が嬉しそうですが、別に嬉しいわけではありません。ただ単に犬と一緒に写っていて嬉しそうに写っているだけです。自分の犬が嫌いじゃないので嬉しそうに写っていてもおかしくないです。)

January 2nd, 2013

Today, I was actually not able to sleep until 6 or 7am, and I was really having trouble throat hurting. However, I went to bed around that time and woke up around 12 or 1pm. So I had a good sleep. I dream some dream during my sleep it was some strange dream, but it was a good one. I guess that is a good thing to dream on first sleep on 2013. Oh yeah, it is still New Year's holiday in Japan, but in the USA, over holiday now. So people start working today actually. I hope everyone has a great day of start year day, and I hope I will have a good day today as everyone else. I almost forgot that, I went to Starbucks and it was so strange that someone paid for my drink when my friend and me drive up there. So I got free Starbucks coffee. However, it was kind of surprised that kind of happen. BUT I think people are very nice and want to give away for their great kindness.
(朝の6か7時までなかなか寝付くことが出来ませんでした。理由としては喉が痛み睡眠を妨げていたというのがあります。でも、その後熟睡して起きたのは午後12時か午後1時でした。すごく良く寝ていた感じがします。睡眠中には夢をみました。これがいい夢だったので、すごくうれしかったです。起きた時にいい夢見たなぁと思ってしまいました。夢の内容は今度時間があるときに。。。でも、2013年最初の夢がいい夢だったことはいいことです。今日はまだ2日で日本で言えばまだお正月休みの最中なのですが、アメリカではすでに仕事始めです。今日からは普通にいろいろと始まっているといった感じです。あ、忘れないうちにここに書いておこうと思います。スターバックスに行った時に注文をして窓口でお金を払おうとした時に「支払いはもう終わってます」といわれました。よくよく聞いてみると「前にいた車の方がすでに支払いをしてくれたんですよ。この時期になるとそういう方が多いんですよね。」といわれました。自分と友達両方ともビックリ驚きました。世の中、まだまだ捨てたものではないのだなぁと思う一時でした。やさしい人がいるということや親切な方の思いやりが心にしみました。「ありがとう」というお礼の感謝です。)
