sick day


Hello everyone, how are you?
I have been sick lately...
First I hurt my throat and now my voice sounds strange, I don't have a fever. That is somewhat good news.

I believe it was my son who  caught the cold first, he kindly tossed it to daddy, and now it I got it.
As a mother it is hard to avoid being sick.
Last year, I had a bad bad influenza. That was terrible.... It took almost one month to get well.

This year, I forced myself to get the flu shot in September. I hope my caughing does not become worser than it already is.


Green tea is good for the throat and my favorite drink.


My parents sent me a pack of green tea leaf last month.  The taste is much much better than the ones we can buy at the grocery store in US.

In my hometown, Shizuoka is the capital of green tea. We grow a lot of Green tea leaf.
In spring the first leaf is harvested as the first crop for green tea.  However, it is expensive becuase the flagrant and taste is the best!


This is the " kasutera " cake. (kind of pound cake) 
Do you know why it colors green??

This is green tea "kasutera" cake. :)

I had a tea time with my son today.




Of course, He loves it!! YUMMY!!

I still have power to take a picture what I eat and post it on blog. So probably I will get better soon. ;)

Have a great weekend!

cocostitchさんも風邪ですか!実は私も長女から風邪をうつされ、熱はないものの、現在はcocostitchさんと似た症状だと思います…。お互いに体調悪くても寝てられないから大変ですが、緑茶&気力でなんとか頑張りましょう。どうかお大事にね!

Amyさんも風邪ですか!お大事にして下さいね。子供がいると休めませんよね。20代のときは風邪なんか引かなかったのに、、、年のせいでもあるのかな。
昨日、この記事を投稿した後ウチの旦那さんが読んで、『ちょっとおかしい、You are funny』と私の英文をあっちこっち直していました。(涙)不可思議な表現が訂正されて読みやすくなっていると思います。:)

Hello Speckled Hen, Thank you for your comment.
This tea cup and black plate were the wedding favor gift of my co-workers in Japan. I really like it. Espesially the black triangle plate.
Take care!
