When I went to Goryokaku Park in Hakodate to see cherry blossoms on May 5, they were already gone. They were earlier than usual this year. I was disappointed because it would have been the last time to see them conveniently. We'll move next year. I then went to northern part of Hakodate on that day, so, I could see them. Unfortunately, it was cloudy.

You can see Mt. Hakodate in the distance ( a little left from the center ).

When my son's eye sight got worse, my husband bought this book for him several years ago. It is an eye training book. However, my son hardly used this book, and his eye sight is very poor now. I'm worried about him.

My eye sight has also been getting worse recently especially when I read in the evening because of my age. I bought glasses before, but I hate to wear them because it's uncomfortable for me. So, I hardly use them.

I got interested in the book to improve my eye sight. I tried to exercise my eyes many times by instructions at first, but it was difficult. After a while, I could see one of the pictures through 3D. I was very surprised to experience it. I felt that it was magical. When you concentrate on seeing just a picture, you become to able to see it through 3D without 3D glasses. Eyes are amazing!
I think I can keep practicing my eyes with this book because it's fun.

Trappist Monastery

My family visited Trappist Monastery in Hokuto City, Hokkaido.
Some friends of mine had recommended the soft ice cream made there, so, I have wanted to try it.
Yes, it was delicious! I also enjoyed a few cherry blossoms as well as nature there.

I liked old buildings there. However, we just looked them from the gate. We didn't see any monks there.
According to the pamphlet, females can't go and see inside the buildings.

vegetable oil

I was surprised to hear from the herbal doctor that "vegetable oil" is not good for your health, especially, palm oil.
I searched it on the Internet. According to it, on the other hand, some oils such as rice, olive, linseed, are good.
When I made whipped cream for a cake, I used to use fresh cream with vegetable fat. I had thought it was healthier. However, some said it is not good including coffee cream portions.

My son and I want sweets everyday, but it is difficult for me to make them so often. So, when I buy sweets, snacks, or sweet bread at a supermarket, I have to check the label. There are a lot of food using vegetable oil and additives for sale, but I want to reduce taking them as much as possible.

How about these sweets? I think their ingredients are better and more simple.

Herbal Medication

IMG_2133_convert_20180415181159.jpg

I baked an onion bread.

Ingredients:
(to make dough)
180g milk
250g bread flour (I used 10g of mix powder consisted of sesame, almond, and soy beans. Also, I used 20g of whole wheat flour and 230g of normal bread flour.)
3g salt
10g sugar
10g olive oil
3g dry yeast

(after making dough)
some sliced onion
some cheese
some mayonnaise
a little of salt and pepper
some sliced ham

1. Put these ingredients and set a bread machine to make dough. (It takes about one and a half hours.)
2. Take out the dough.
3. Make a ball shape with the dough and leave it in a large container for about 30 minutes.
4. Roll out the dough and put some sliced ham.
5. Roll the dough.
6. Put the dough into a loaf pan.
7. Slash on top of the dough.
8. Put the rest of the ingredients on the top.
9. Leave it in the oven at 37℃ for 30 minutes.
10. Put it in the oven at 170℃ for another 30 minutes.


The other day, I went to a herbal drug shop (漢方薬局) for my father having dementia.

A man like a doctor listened to me at first a little, and he gave me a seat. While we were talking, I found a sign which said 5,000 yen for a counsel. I became worried how much I would have to pay when I leave there.
Actually, he was very talkative. He said that herbal medication isn't effective immediately. It is good to keep on taking.

When about one hour passed, he told me that pay 5,000 yen unless I buy any.
I didn't want to pay for just listening, so I decided to buy some herbal medication he recommended. He ended up talking to me for one and half hours.

I sent them to my father. I hope they will be effective on him soon.

Ikebana 4/4/2018

IMG_2140_convert_20180408160927.jpg

I had composed this arrangement of Viburnum Furcatum (虫狩/ムシカリ), Rose (バラ), and Gold dust dracaena (ゴッドセフィアナ) for a monthly Ikebana test.

Several days later, I took the test today.
I found some flower buds of the Fuki near the parking lot.

A professor from Kagawa Prefecture arranged two works for us there.

When my mother got in critical condition a few months ago, the doctor recommended that close people for her come and see her. When I heard from my brother about it on the phone, I regreted one thing. That was what I had turned down my mother's offer. She had asked me to go to the hot springs together before.

She had had pneumonia, but she recovered fortunately. The doctor said that it was a miracle.
I took my son to see my parents during his spring vacation. I then went to the hot springs with my mother. I was glad to fulfill her wish.
