the simple woman's daybook

FOR TODAY January 24, 2012

Outside my window...dark and cold night (4 degrees Celsius)(39 Fahrenheit).

I am warm UNIQLO fleece and heatteck stuff. They keep me warm in a cold day.

In the kitchen...There are some plates to be waiting to be washed. For dinner we had "Nabe hotpot seasoned with Korean pickles".

I am wearing...a cream white fleece and khaki pants with black socks. Very comfy and warm. My room has only a small heater, so it is a bit cold.We have no central heating system in Japanese houses.

I am in the vase. My 82-year-old mother takes a lesson of flower arrangement every Tuesday. So she brings them back to home, then I put those flowers into a vase in the living room on behalf of her. It's my own style.

I am bed earlier today to recover from a cold. Now I have asthma-like symptoms.

I've finished reading "Endurance"  Shackleton's Incredible Voyage by Alfred Lansing. It's a very inspiring book.

I am hoping that the cold lets up this Friday and Saturday. I'll play tennis with my friends.

I am looking forward to meeting my daughter's family this weekend. To meet my grandson gives me joy.

I am learning about how to take better pictures.

I am pondering...about another earthquake. I pray for no more earthquake hit  Japan.

One of my favorite the time to open the curtains in the morning and feel the energy of the bright sun.

A few plans for the rest of the week...English study session on Wednesday, enjoying tennis on Friday and Saturday, family reunion on Saturday and Sunday.

Here is a picture I am sharing... I bought this warm pants today. Love at first sight. What do you think?
