I can't believe it has been so long since I blogged!! I always intend to blog but then it's 2 am and I'm tired and figure the blog won't make much sense so I don't.
Let's see....what's new. Fall is, I think, finally here. It was soooooo humid last week-felt like July and then it rained and finally there is a freshness to the air that I have really really missed!!! My honey and I will start walking again after I come home for work...can't wait!!!
Gluten free has been great. My honey has also gone gluten free. He has always had huge digestive issues so I told him he should try going gluten free for a bit to see how he feels and he said he would try. In one day we could already see the difference...no bloating...no running to the toilet, no (or much much less) burping etc. He is thrilled that he feels better but less than thrilled to realize how many things are off limits now. He still makes mistakes and buys things without reading them and sure enough....wheat or soy sauce is added. I have given away a lot of food recently to friends and students-they are all happy but Futoshi isn't.
Because of the gluten free thing we have ordered fabulous bread and other products from el peto.... www.elpeto.com they have the best breads for people who can't eat wheat or gluten. They are in Canada and they do ship to the states and other countries. They are shipping mine to the states and I have a company who ships it to me in Japan. We just got their chocolate chip muffins today and OMG!! Yummy! I have known about the store for about 20 years as my grandmother used to eat their products but part of the reason I didn't order from them before is space....as in freezer space! Well...now that we have the 2nd apartment/office we just bought a chest freezer so we can buy lots of bread and freeze it! I am beyond thrilled to have a chest freezer. I don't know anyone in Japan who has them as most homes (never mind apartments) just don't have space for one (there are no basements in Japan....that is where my family always kept ours). It is soooo beautiful! I can't wait to start filling it with things!!!
I'm planning a trip to Tokyo for next month.....lots of shopping for my business!! Can't wait to see what I find.
We will be officially opening a request shopping business. We do it now anyway but we will probably add a section to our yahoo store about the business and how it works etc. We get a lot of requests to buy things that we don't sell so we decided this would just make sense.
I'm sure I'm forgetting something...
