J and I get together and enjoy breakfast. that was my idea. However when I got the restaurant in J-town he wasn't there. I couldn't see his car either. What more, I forgot my cell-phone. I couldn't contact him. It was rain this morning.  There was no public telephone so, I came back home and called him. He said that " I called you twice and left message, I caught cold so I decided not to come.
All this thing happened just because I forgot my Cell-phone.

This is Saturday. It was cloudy all day long. But yesterday's weather report was It's going to be rain today. So, I should be happy because we didn't have rain today.

I finished painting watercolor I started yesterday. I liked the painting. I did good job.
N and I went to a restaurant on Larchmont street to have a breakfast. This is the first time came to this restaurant and I forgot to check the name of the place. I wasn’t really hungry so I looking for something light. They were names of ordinary breakfast menu. An  American breakfast is so big Just look at it I lose my appetite. So, I was looking for something light. I found a waffle with fruit topping. That’s sound light enough. I was right. It was just  about right amount of meal and it was good. I enjoyed it.

I needed cash money. So, I went to my bank. I tried draw some money but I couldn't do it. Computer didn't prove my pin number. That's funny. I was sure I did punch in right number. I tried 5 or 6 times and gave up. It was mystery. what was happening. Well, I still need cash, I have to go to bank and try it again. 

I had toasts with peanut butter and jam on it this morning. It was something new for me. I usually eat an oatmeal in the morning. It was good.
I call my oatmeal Japanese style oatmeal. It's special way to make.

A friend and I went to Japanese food market after the breakfast. He wanted to get Japanese udon noodles. So, recommended instant udon which has fresh noodles instead of dried one. I think some how it better than dried noodles.

He called me late and ask me how to cook the noodles. A cooking instruction is only Japanese. I thought imported product always English one too, but I was wrong. I explained how to make it. I am glade that I bought same noodles for my self so I now how to cook. Otherwise I can't explain to him on the phone. I think he got it because he didn't call me back. At least not yet.

Finally, I recovered from cold. 
I feel wonderful and more energy. 
I started painting watercolor yesterday. 
And before I finish it I started new one. 
6:30am It was still dark outside. Usually it getting lighter by now. I could't wait any longer. I decided to go for morning walk. I wore sneakers and opened the front door.
Then I saw it's raining. No wonder it was dark like this. I canceled the morning walk. I will do it later when weather get better.

I enjoyed breakfast with J at the restaurant in Japan town.
