Ready for New Year 2009!

Getting ready for the new year. We spend New Year's day in Japanese style because Japanese one has more food.
Hanging this crane noren (tapestry) is always first thing I do for New Year preparation.
Japanese New Year's day food takes long time to prepare. I have started yesterday and mostly done for tomorrow. おせちって本当に時間かかる。昨日から準備はじめて31日の5時に大体終わりました。

Supposed to have pine, bamboo and plum in your flower arrangement for New Year's day but I got only pine but looks good, don't they? Now I am done cooking and resting and waiting for dinner Steven is making :) 松竹梅といきたいところだけど、松しか手に入らず。でもいい感じでしょ?準備も終わって今は、休憩中。Stevenが夕食を作っているのを待っています。:)
