Sad departure

Yesterday was the memorial day of my darling cat Hagi.
After she's gone, she has sent lovely kittens to look after our family.

And I heard the news that Tama the famous cat station master
died on monday.
She must be sad to leave her human family but very happy to see her
mom and sisters in Kitty heaven.
Tama, you are infinite light.

My little Ninja Cat

I have been reading Erin Hunter's
Warriors series which gave me
this inspiration what my cat might be
doing when she goes out during the night.

A new year has come !

The first day of 2015 was a lovely sunny day
here in Christchurch.

We harvested ume plums from our garden.
Little ones we collected earlier became plum vinegar.
And these one will be umeboshi using red shiso leaves.

 We enjoyed mother's traditional Japanese new year's feast
called osechi.
Each ingredients represent meanings like  happiness,
well being, wisdom, prosperity and so on.
Living in the other side of the world & season, it's not
possible to have all the ingredients needed, but we are so
lucky to be able to have home made osechi.

Wish you all happiness and harmony through out this year.
