大根の煮物

お昼に昨日つくった大根、油揚げ、とり肉の煮物をキリと食べる。
今日の方が味がしみて、本当にしみじみした味だ。
昨日一晩おいておいた、中華風の白菜の甘酢漬けも一緒に。
白菜と大根、すっかり冬の食卓になった。

キリもやっと食欲が戻ったのか(ずっと風邪をひいていた)、大根も白菜もよく食べてくれた。季節の物だし、今は水気も甘みもあって、子供にもおいしいんだろうか。

曇っているが、外もそんなに寒くない。
暖かい家の中で、おいしいご飯するしあわせ。

Creators' Co-op this Saturday

I went to drop off some stands for my greeting cards today at the Creators' Co-op.
Kazuki quickly arranged my stuff on the stands and it looked great! Shop was looking cheerly with its orange walls and colorful products. I was surprised people were constantly coming in and out of this little shop - that's great.


Kili always has a nice time at the store, too. It's just really welcoming. Hope you make it there.

T-shirts - so far, "Mmm, Mmm, Bad!" is the #1 seller.

The cards look happier sitting on the handmade stand:)

今日はお店に自分のグリーティング・カードを立てるスタンドを届けに行ってきました。(低予算というかノー予算なので、もちろん手作り)

思惑どおり、スタンドにアレンジされたカード達は、ただ平に置いてあった時よりも見やすく、手に取りやすい感じにもなってうふふなのでした。
お店では更に素敵なものが増えて、本当にいい感じ。

桐子もカリンちゃんとお店の人達に遊んでもらって、楽しいお出かけでした。

Aya's hat

My baby sis Aya is really good at knitting. This is a new hat she made for me this winter. It has a small brim and that makes it unique. My husband is wearing her hat, too. K is wearing a hat knitted by my the other sister. We are so lucky we have such crafty sisters who keeps us toasty.

cookies from Aki

My sister Akiko sometimes sends us cookies from Black Hound. This year, we got a box of gingerbread men and lemon ginger button cookies - both very tasty. Thanks, aunt Aki!
