Happy New Year! The first posting of 2018

Happy New Year, my friends on earth!

Happy New Year, my friends on earth!

This year, basically same osechi ( Japan's new year feast ) from same place, but I placed them in plates.

The far right is Ozoni I made.
Ozoni or Zoni is a kind of stew for new year. It has vegetables and mochi= rice cake.

I haven't written any messages in Japanese yet. Wanted to free myself from Japanese and was reading a book in English. What a relief! I enjoy my work and do appreciate my clients giving me great opportunities, but you know.

One whole day, I spent for myself quietly. ( Oh, I know many of you are surrounded by children, families, all the time and very busy..... sorry for saying this, but you know what I mean. ) It is a kind of lonely, but it is also called positve solitude.

I would enjoy partying for new year, of course! It should be nice.

This year, though I needed a kind of solitude. Being alone, being myself.
Quiet reading for my soul.

Enjoyed the new year food ( some of them are only eaten during this festive season such as seasoned herring roe. ) .

I feel so blessed, too. Thanks to my cheerleaders. Some, probably I know directly. Some people are like secretly cheerleading..... I can sense that.

Thanks to you all. I am wishing everybody's happiness.
