Mr. Saenai's wife

Since my son had watched a serial TV drama 'Super Salaryman Mr. Saenai' on Saturdays, I often had it with him although it came to an end last week.

Mr. Saenai's wife was bad. Although she was a housewife, she didn't work anything at home. Whenever Mr. Saenai came home from work, she was lying on the sofa and playing with her smart phone. As soon as he opened the living room door from work, she ordered him to make meals for his family, to clean the bathtub and prepare the bath. He also made box lunches for his children as well as his own one. He did every housework instead of his wife. One day, his daughter forgot to take her box lunch. His wife called Mr. Saenai to take it to her school although he was having an important meeting. He always ended up following her orders.

His wife always excused why Mr. Saenai had to do instead of her. I liked to listen to her excuses in the TV drama. Her excuses were unreasonable, but I thought I wish I were her once in a while. I bet some wives thought the same thing as me.

On the other hand, some husbands might have felt comfortable to watch the TV drama because their wives were better than Mr. Saenai's wife.

workshops / Rubber Stamp and Succulent Arrangement

IMG_1173_convert_20170319162812.jpg

I made some Cinnamon Rolls for the first time yesterday. The walnuts went well with the bread. They were delicious, so I want to make them again someday. Just after baking was much better than the next day.
I used this recipe to make them.

I joined some workshops with my friends today.
One was for Rubber Stamp and the other was for Succulent Arrangement. I tried them for the first time.

Actually, I hadn't been interested in Rubber Stamp, and I don't have a good sense of picture, but I was glad to learn how to ink. There were many stamps including words in English. At first, I didn't understand why there was a stamp written 'Dig in!'. I learned it meant 'to start eating' later.

As for the Succulent Arrangement, I learned about succulents. They seemed to be easy to grow. I hope to see their tiny flowers someday.

Between the workshops, we ate delicious bread and a cup of coffee for lunch.
I had a good time there.

Spring has come!

IMG_1166_convert_20170315214350.jpg

Today, I found some sprouts of alpine leek (行者ニンニク) in my planter.
I was surprised to see them. Because, we had a lot of snow last week. Yesterday, it was raining and snowing. The snow on the ground has been melting recently. The temperature was around 5℃ today.
I was glad that the number of sprouts has more than doubled since last year. When they grow adequately, I'll cook them. I'm looking forward to eating them in the near future.

How to use the protein powder?

I joined an Ikebana Sunday Workshop today. Two works were arranged by a professor who came from Osaka.


IMG_1152_convert_20170312151518.jpg

I made a loaf of bread and some cookies using the protein powder.
However, frankly, they were not so good. They were dry. As for the cookies, they were not sweet. The protein powder includes sugar, so I didn't add any sugar. The bread didn't rise enough. My son tried a cookie, but he wouldn't eat another one. He ate the bread with jam, though. I learned that it was OK to make bread using a little of protein powder.
There is a lot of them still now.
I don't know how to use it up soon. So, I drink a cup of milk adding a table spoon of it every morning instead of my son. You may laugh with it because the protein powder was made for children.

I remember a similar story of my friend of mine. It always makes me laugh.
She likes English. She wanted her children to read weekly newspaper for children learning English. She subscribed them, but her children didn't want to read them at all. So, she read them every week instead of her children.
I felt sorry for her, but it was a funny story.

Ikebana 3/8/2017

IMG_1159_convert_20170308223427.jpg

I had composed this arrangement of Raspberry (芽出し木苺), Pteridophyta (ヤマシダ), and Canola (菜の花).

It was difficult for me to arrange the Pteridophyta. Although you may not recognize them, they were arranged of a three‐layer structure. In other words, there were three heights of them. They are obscure though.


The other day, I went to another doctor. I was diagnosed with herpes zoster as I had doubted because the pain was unusual and the all bumps came out on my left side. The pain in my breast also came from my left side. The herpes zoster always comes out on your one side. Actually, I had experienced one on my face about a decade ago.

The pain was gone. I'm fine now. There is nothing better than health.
