Kurumi was fine today as well. We went out to the garden and felt the warmth of the sun a lot. I spent time as a do-it-yourselfer today. During this time, there is a lot of pollen, so when I work outside, my eyes become itchy, my nose becomes muffled, and I have to wear a mask. I’ll finish the first half of the work today and continue next weekend.
It was a cold day this morning as well. In the morning, we were relaxed by the warmth of the stove. In the afternoon, Kurumi went to a vet to get an injection to prevent rabies. This is a Japanese law for him. Then he had his small arm take blood and have it tested for heartworm. The result was negative and he was relieved without any problems. It was a resting Kurumi today.
It was a cold day today as well. I went out to the garden with Kurumi, but it was so cold then we immediately back to my house. The number of new coronavirus infections continues to increase in Tokyo, and it was announced to apply “priority measures such as prevention of spread”. The city I live in will also be applied, and this cramped feeling will continue for a month starting next Monday. The news reports this every day and it becomes a little neurotic. At that time, I go out to the garden and look at the flowers. The roses have bloomed beautifully.
The number of people infected with coronavirus is increasing again. There are more infected people in Osaka than in Tokyo. At this rate, there is concern that the number will increase rapidly in Tokyo as well. The Olympic torch relay has been reported to avoid the crowd, but in reality many people have gathered. It seems that the wearing rate of masks is also decreasing. Vaccination is still ahead. All the people must make an effort to prevent infection. I had time to spend with Kurumi in the garden today as well.
I was taking a walk today and it was a very pleasant and sunny morning. The long stairs that I always climb, and the weather can make me feel painful or comfortable. When I climbed up and looked back, the blue sky and green trees made me feel better today. Kurumi is fine today. At 6 pm, the reminder begins as if saying, “It’s time to eat.” Kurumi seems to know the time.
The temperature has dropped since last night and it was cold all day long today. Kurumi has been sleeping well on such a day. The warmth of the stove was a thankful day. Looking at the lawn in the garden, the green color is getting darker, and the lawn that was renewed this year is growing steadily.
This morning I left home and went to work while Kurumi was sleeping. It was a weekly work day. We had a meeting with a person who joined the company from last week. I am keenly aware that the way of working has changed significantly due to the coronavirus. I am grateful to see person’s face and talk directly. After work, I went home. Today was a short day with Kurumi.
この数週間、毎週末に天気が悪くなります。今日も午後から雨が降り始めました。この雨で桜も終わりになることでしょう。雨が降り出す前に庭仕事をしました。玄関のアプローチに出てきた雑草を取り除き、花の手入れをしました。作業をしている間、クルミは庭を物色、落ちていた金冠の実をかじり始めたので取り上げました。夕方、海外に住む家族からの Face Time、クルミも画面の向こう側の声に応えていました。
The weather has been bad every weekend for the past few weeks. It started to rain this afternoon as well. This rain will end the cherry blossoms may be. I worked in the garden before it started to rain. Weeds that appeared on the approach to the entrance were removed and the flowers were groomed. While working, Kurumi played in the garden. I stopped his picking up the fallen gold crown. In the evening, we received the Face Time from overseas families. Kurumi also responded to the voices on the other side of the screen.
It has become a daily routine for Kurumi to play in the garden. He went out to the garden today and not come back smoothly. If I leave the door open, he will be back in a while. It is the evidence of warmth now. A couple of water lily leaves came out. I am looking forward to seeing the flowers this year as well.
Kurumi needed stay at home in the morning. When we return from the outing, Kurumi asked us for a snack. It’s as if he was saying, “I was able to stay and keep properly.” In the afternoon, Momo-chan from the neighborhood stopped by during her walk. Kurumi remembered being chased by Momo-chan before and didn’t try to approach her. And today he played with toys and fell asleep as usual.
