During the morning walk, when I was invited by the sweet scent, Kinmokusei flowers were in full bloom. This scent has many memories. In particular, I remember having a hard time looking for a gift with the scent of Kimmokusei, which is a favorite scent of a friend I met in the United States. This scent is often used as a fragrance, so I couldn’t find anything to wear. Kurumi walked a lot yesterday, but maybe he wasn’t tired, so he got up early this morning.
During the morning walk, an acorn had fallen on the side of the road. It was still green a while ago, but now it’s colored as autumn and it’s starting to fall from the trees. I feel the speed of the changing seasons. I took a day off and enjoyed the drive today. My sister-in-law also came with us and went to the vineyard in Kofu. We were able to have sweet and delicious grapes this year as well. Kurumi was happy to have his favorite fruit today.
The impact of Typhoon No. 14 approaching Japan is beginning to appear here as well. It was cloudy today, but it was a day of rapid weather changes, with occasional sunlight and rain. I didn’t have a long time with Kurumi, but we still had time to go out to the garden and hug him. Recently, I have been working late at night every day. I will take a rest tomorrow.
When I went out to the garden in the morning, there was a nice scent. Kumquats in the garden are in bloom. I thought I saw a flower a while ago, so I looked it up. I now understood that kumquat has flowering seasons in spring, summer and autumn. I see it in the garden every year, and it was an opportunity to learn about kumquat. The fruits that form after the flowers that bloom in autumn become fruits. I’m sorry that the time with Kurumi was short today. I will play with him for a little longer tomorrow.
Kurumi got up at 4 o’clock this morning as well. He seems not like to sleep his bed in our bedroom, so I take him to the sofa in the living room and he slept until morning. I also go back to bed and slept, this situation has been continuing these days. Today was a day I worked at a company office and had little time with Kurumi. After dinner, Kurumi came to my side. He knows what we are doing. I hugged him gently.
Kurumi’s nails are growing, so I decided to cut them. Kurumi is always gentle and make me cut his nails. I’ve had three dogs before, Chao, Cookie, and Purin, only Chao she was also gently me cut her nails. The Yorkshire Terrier’s nails are black so be careful. I feel sorry when I cut the blood vessels. I enjoyed the bottled beer I found at the grocery store for dinner. Sapporo’s red label is my favorite beer. I hope we can enjoy the week from tomorrow.
My wife and I had a tennis school today. Saturday of the weekend, this week was a day of work, so I can relax today. The temperature wasn’t high, but the humidity was high and I sweated a lot in tennis. At night, we went out for dinner at our favorite restaurant. Kurumi was left alone at home several times and watched TV with me at night. And he was asleep while I was watching TV program.
Today, the temperature has returned to the usual temperature and has risen to nearly 30 degrees Celsius. In the evening, after the sun was a little dark, I took a walk with Kurumi to a nearby park. He stopped for a while, perhaps because his long shadow was interesting. The Government of Japan has decided to extend the state of emergency. And they are starting to discuss the direction after the state is lifted. According to it, the cramped life as it is now is likely to continue until November. I am sure never return to the original state, but I hope that we will be able to travel, eat and drink as much as we can soon.
There are no days off this week. I was working at home today as well. In the afternoon, I had some time to rest, so I took a walk with Kurumi. He was able to go out for the first time in a long time and was walking happily. During the walk, we met an elementary school student returning from school. She pets Kurumi lovely. Kurumi was also quiet. Did he get tired today? Kurumi fell asleep beside me after dinner.
Today I went to an ophthalmologist for my regular checkups every three months. A procedure is performed to open the eyes to perform a fundus examination. Thus half a day is dazzling my eyes. I can’t drive a car, so today I walked to the station and got on the train that I didn’t use for awhile. The weather was nice in the morning, but it became cloudy and rainy in the afternoon. Kurumi spends a lot of time on his favorite sofas today. I work every day this week. I’m sorry I didn’t have enough time to spend time with Kurumi.
