自分とブログ。

ここ数年頭の中でくすぶっていた「自分にとってのブログとは何か」。
Twitterにちょこちょこと書いてはいたものの、そろそろ自分のために「今の気持ち」をここに書き記そうと思います。
長いひとりごとのようなものなので、興味のない方は【つづきべや】はスルーでお願いします。

2013の抱負。

【丁寧な暮らし】



SHISHIMAI。



カナダに住むようになっても日本の行事を忘れずカナダと日本の季節の行事を楽しむように心がけていたのですが、ここ数年は気持ちの忙しさに押し潰され、気づいた時は時すでに遅し・・・ということも多々。2014年の6月に新居への引っ越しを控えているため2013年は今住んでいるところでの最後の1年になることですし、今年は出来るだけ行事ごとを大切にしていきたいと思ってます。ここでも少しずつ紹介していけたらいいな。・・・ピグピグしてる暇がなくなるなw

三連休の苦悩。

VIVA LABOR DAY WEEKEND!



figs



Yes, we finally have a 3-day weekend. Hurray! I've been back to work for a month and it is really nice to have a little break before work gets more crazy...

I was thinking of going to Chicago (or NYC for a revenge trip ;-p) for a few days. But Choco invited his parents over on Saturday, so here goes my plan. His mom wants to try dumplings in Chinatown, but his dad is really not into it. But they are both coming together. Dumpling restaurants serve pretty much dumplings only. So, I guess I have to face my challenge again. Should we take them to a Vietnamese restaurant where they can get BBQ beef or something on rice instead? Then, his mom cannot try dumplings. I should take his mom to the dumpling restaurant and Choco should take his dad to a Vietnamese restaurant. Then, everyone is happy. But his parents want to eat all together... My challenge is never ending. It was a good thing that I will have 2 more days before getting back to work XD

The picture is nothing to do with Labor Day. But good figs are available around this time. These figs are small and the skin is thin. So, you can eat pretty much everything except stems. They are really sweet and perfect as toppings for cakes or to eat as they are. You can make sauce for pork with those, too. I remember making maple syrup cheesecake topped with figs and drizzled with additional maple syrup and it was a big hit. What should I make this year...?

my birthday wish。

Since my birthday is approaching...
my wish list 
I made a wish list. Well, there is nothing wrong with making a wish list, right?  I really want the lens or the watch.  It doesn't look like I can get any of these, though.  Patience, patience, patience...



もうすぐお誕生日なので、欲しいものリスト作ってみた。
なに、この狙ったようなモノトーンは?w
リストを作ってはみたものの、ゲット出来る気配が全くない・・・(笑)
バリスタもどきがもらえるような話を聞いたんだけど。
せめてレンズか時計が欲しいなぁ。

端午の節句。

iris。



菖蒲は、邪気を避け魔物を祓う薬草とされていたらしい。
よもぎと一緒に門に飾ったりお風呂に入れたり。
カナダのirisでも同じ効果があるのだろうか?



菖蒲。
