I replaced the tires in preparation for the snowy winter roads. The electric car I bought this year had to replace the old tires because they can’t be used. I thought that if it snowed this season, I wouldn’t be able to ride it, but I was worried about it, so I decided to buy a new one. Now I can enjoy the winter with peace of mind. Kurumi was a little unwell today. On such a day, I talk with my wife about the cause of Kurumi’s poor health. But we can’t find any cause for this. I think it’s medicine to give him an environment where Kurumi can live peacefully.
明け方の散歩では綺麗な朝焼けを見ることができました。東の空がオレンジ色に輝いていました。朝焼けの日は天気が悪くなると言われている通り、午後からは雨になりました。 クルミは最近、とてもおとなしくなってきました。寝愚図って少し騒ぎますが、それも短い時間です。寒くなってきたためかも知れません。でも彼は元気で食欲もあります。あと1月で13歳の誕生日となるクルミは私たちにとって愛おしい存在です。 私はプログラミングの勉強を続けました。今日は LED をネオンのように流すことまでできています。
I was able to see a beautiful sunrise on my morning walk. The eastern sky was shining orange. As it is said that the weather gets worse in such the morning color, it started raining in the afternoon. Kurumi has been very quiet lately. He sleep and make a little noise, but it’s only for a short time. Maybe it’s because it’s getting cold these days. But he is fine and has a good appetite. Kurumi, he will be turning 13 years old in one month, is dear to us. I continued my programming studies. Today I could make LEDs flow like neon.
Today, I went through a computer inventory procedure at my company. I’m still using the computer that was provided to me when I joined the company in February 2013. It will be exactly 10 years in February next year, and both I and my computer are old. It seems that there are no employees who have been using it for such a long time. After returning home, I continued the electronic work and was able to make the LED light up. I need to study the program a little more before I can make all 144 lights up. Kurumi was dressed in red. It seems that the warmth of the stove was happy today in the cloudy sky, and he fells asleep in front of the stove.
Thankfully, today was another sunny and warm day. According to the weather forecast, cold days are coming from the second half of this week. My wife and I went grocery shopping and saw the autumn leaves of a large tree in front of the station, reflecting the blue sky. A cold winter is coming soon. Kurumi is looking forward to eat a snack as a reward for waiting. He was happy to get a snack from my wife today as usual.
Once I started learning programming, I couldn’t stop and spent most of my time in my workspace. As I get older, my brain slows down, so it’s difficult to program. I’m going to make steady progress, little by little. Kurumi slept with me in my bed last night too. It must be warm and comfortable inside the futon, so even when I woke up, Kurumi was still sleeping.
Japan beat Germany in a come-from-behind victory at the World Cup in Qatar. Germany took the lead in the first half with a score of 1-0, but in the second half Japan scored two goals to take the lead. All over Japan, this happy news was reported from the morning. I got the flu vaccine today. It helps that I don’t have to pay for it when I get older, but it’s complicated when I think that it’s covered by taxes. Kurumi played well today and slept well. Lately, we’ve been sleeping together at night. It’s getting cold, and Kurumi crawl into the futon and I can’t move.
Harvested lemons from the garden. My wife immediately cut and ate it, and I and sister-in-law, who came to visit, are delighted with the delicious fruit. We were able to harvest a total of 10 lemons this year, probably because of the good weather. I have only watered them without giving them fertilizer, but next year I would like to thank them for giving them proper fertilizer. Kurumi is doing well today as well. The temperature rose and he slept well in the warm living room.
It’s Thanksgiving Day today, cold rain has been falling since morning. The temperature has dropped by 10 degrees Celsius since yesterday, making it cold as late December. The weather forecast says it will be sunny tomorrow and the temperature will be close to 20 degrees Celsius. I am amazed at the big changes in temperature just one day. Early in the afternoon, I decided to warm up by the wood stove. On rainy days, there is no house where the laundry is put outside, so it is safe even if there is a little smoke coming out of the chimney. Kurumi was also able to play wrapped in this warmth. It seems that he has memorized the meal times three times a day. At 4:00 p.m., he started reminding my wife to eat.
Today was a calm day blessed with the warmth of the sun. The lemons in the garden are turning yellow and it may be time to harvest. I am starting a new project with friends. I prepared the LED tape and its driving circuit and started the electronic work. I have a national exam next month, but I am excited about the design work. Kurumi was relaxing surrounded by the sunlight streaming through the window. I was also working overtime for the first time in a while, so I couldn’t play with Kurumi.
朝降っていた雨は正午前にはすっかり止んで青空が広がりました。陽の光によって木々の紅葉がとても綺麗に映えています。ご近所の T さん宅にお邪魔してサポートをした帰りに少し歩くことができました。 この住宅の全戸に配布された自主防災マニュアルと資料を読んで、常備している防災用品を出して点検してみました。発電機を内蔵したラジオは健在でした。何も起きないことを願いますが、この先に必ず来る災害に備えなければなりません。 いつも一緒にいるのですっかりと寂しがりやになってしまいましたが、クルミは今日も穏やかに過ごしています。
The rain that had been falling in the morning had completely stopped before noon and the blue sky spread out. The leaves of the trees are beautifully illuminated by the sunlight. I was able to walk a little on the way home from visiting T-san in the neighborhood to support them. I read the self disaster prevention manual and materials distributed to all houses in this area, took out the emergency goods that I have, and checked them out. Radio with built-in generator was alive and well. We hope nothing happens, but we must prepare for the disaster that is sure to come. Kurumi becomes quite lonely because we are always with him, but Kurumi is calm today as well.
