Still a hot October day

Today is October 2, but was still humid and hot. The highest temperature reached 28 degree C.

I finished up another paper today. I am working hard before going to Hawaii.

Olympic soccer games started

Maya-san. on the other hand, likes to go out to the veranda because cats come sometimes into the backyard. We need to take her in once in a while. Soccer tournaments have already started in the Olympic games. Girls won the first game against Canada. From now on, guys play against Spain.  To be honest, I think there is little chance to beat them.
