Sewing Life

 I wonder if my blogger friends remember that my daughter and her husband gave me a red sewing mashine as Kanreki present in autumn 2012.
I have been enjoying sewing and made several things since then.
 
 
 
 This is a new apron I lately made for my daughter MM.
Isn't it cute? She currently wants to help grandma with cooking
and I thought this sort of apron is a good item to make her cooking time more fun.
 
   


She is pretending a shop keeper in her new apron and
I have to do shopping over and over again at her shop. lol

Life is Beautiful



Her name is Misao Okawa and she is now spending her quiet life in a nursing home in Osaka, western Japan. Wearing a new pink kimono with a red flower in her hair, she looks so happy. Her smile is very cute, isn't it? Recently she celebrated her 116th birthday. Amazing!! I saw the three digit number candles on a birthday cake for the first time in my life:) The world's oldest woman said that tips for longevity were very simple, just eating a good meal and reluxing.

You never know when your grand finale of your life comes. But one thing for sure is that nobady can live foreever. According to the statistics, average life span for women in Japan is 86 yerars now, which means I may still have about 30 years to go. (I can't deny tha possibility that my life come to an end tomorrow all of sudden though...) What do I like to do for the rest of my life? Whatever it is, my health condition is the most important key to make it come true.

Eating a good meal and reluxing...

I try to keep the phrase in mind so that I may be able to live healthy untill the very last day of my life.

Long Time No See

It's been quite some time since my last post. Just unbelievable!! THe main reason is that I started taking care of my granddaughter during daytime because my daughter went back to work in the beginning of May 2013 after 20 months of maternity and child care leave. Being with an infant for about 8 hours a day is very exciting for sure but exhausting as well. Anyway so far so good. We have been getting alone quite well. MM(my granddaughter) is 28 months old now. Time flies... She is very active, talkative but very shy of strangers. Today she has a bit high fever and our family-get-together dinner for cerebrating my hubby's 57th birthday and the Girl's Festival have postponed. Hope she will get well soon so that we can get together and have a good time next weekend.


 
She loves animals.
 

 
She is absorbed in blowing soap bubbles.
