I worked from home all day today. I didn’t have a conference call in the morning, so I was working in a living room with Kurumi where air conditioning has. When I stand up from time to time, he invites me to go out to the garden. Kurumi is usually taking a nap, but when I’m by his side, he was exciting. I had a conference call in the afternoon so I worked in my office. I couldn’t play with Kurumi for a while. I spend more time at home to prevent corona infections, and the way I interact with Kurumi has changed.
Kurumi visited a veterinarian today for a medical examination. While waiting in the waiting room, Kurumi was quiet. The director made a diagnosis of Kurumi. There is no abnormal heart noise and confirmed Kurumi health. However, I was concerned that cataracts were progressing now. It was a hot day today as well. Many ginkgo nuts are beginning to grow on the ginkgo tree. Kurumi got tired so he came home and fell asleep next to me.
Many new cases of coronavirus infection are reported today again. Every time I hear this news, I get mixed feelings. The ratio of positives to the total number of tests is also increasing, so there is no doubt that the infection is spreading. There is no choice but to be careful in daily life. I had lunch at the cafe counter. There is a card indicating that the table has been disinfected after leaving the previous customer. I also flipped the card after finishing the meal, but in some cases people may forget it. We want each and every one of us to work together, understand each other, and get out of this COVID hell as soon as possible. It was a hot day today as well. I went back to home and enjoyed the time with Kurumi.
It was a cloudy sky this afternoon, but the temperature was high and humid days continued. Today was a day of working from home. My den also has an air conditioner, but I decided to open the window and enjoy the wind to blow in. However, due to the high humidity, sweat will ooze. After the walk, I sprinkled water in the garden. I noticed that the golden crown tree has many flowers. There will be many fruits next year as well. Kurumi was taking a nap comfortably today as well.
It is August from today already. The hot days of summer are continuing. The outside air thermometer of the car displayed almost the same temperature as the human body temperature. I feel that summer in Japan is getting tougher year by year. And the Olympic Games are being held in such a weather. I pray for the health and good health of all the players. I am very happy that Japan has won many gold medals. Kurumi went out to the garden for a while, but by the heat so he soon returned to the house.
Kurumi slept until I woke up, probably because he was tired of the trip until yesterday. Today was also a hot day. When I noticed, a flag with “ice” was displayed in a nearby cafe. Since it is written as ice in coffee color, it may be that they are serving coffee-flavored shaved ice. On hot days, the coldness of the ice invites me. However, I didn’t have time today and decided to put up with it. Kurumi had a lot of nap today. Next to him, I also enjoyed a nap for a while. We were able to spend a peaceful weekend.
I enjoyed a walk near the inn this morning. It was a hot and humid day from the morning. When I walk along the national road, I notice rare things and have fun. In the morning we just relax at the inn, then we went home from the afternoon. On the way to home, we had lunch at a cafe in Atami. It was good to be able to eat on the terrace with Kurumi. I found out about this cafe in a magazine at the inn. The food with lots of vegetables was very delicious.
We came to a park with a view of the sea. The sun was strong and it was a hot day, but the wind from the sea was comfortable and we were able to spend a calm time. After having lunch at a cafe with a terrace, we took a walk to the cape with a lighthouse. We walked about 1km along the coast and sweated a lot. Today, there are more than 10,000 new corona infections in Japan. Traveling at such times can make me feel very complicated. I am planning to return via Atami tomorrow.
It was a hot morning from the morning, but I took a walk. I took a picture of the clouds. I went home and spent time with Kurumi in the garden, but there are many mosquitoes and it is difficult. It seems that many mosquitoes are growing after the rain until yesterday. Immediately, we ran into my house. We took a drive from the afternoon. It is under the emergency situation, but I decided to go to Shizuoka today.
Typhoon No. 8 is slowing down. The forecast to land in the Tohoku region tomorrow morning. Recently, many typhoons occur near Japan. Also, the course is unpredictable. It seems that there was no typhoon landing in the Tohoku region in the past. This may also be the effect of global warming. The rain in the morning stopped in the evening, and the blue sky is spreading. When I looked at the olive tree, there was a hole in it, and a nest of longhorn beetles was formed. I took time with Kurumi today as well. He ate, played, slept, barked a lot, and fell asleep early today.
