I continued copying and pasting. At 2 AM, a mail arrived from a Mexican friend working for a French university; he invited me to the defense of his Chinese PhD student, and the date of defense was decided on September 18th. So I will visit France in September. I finished the report at 4 AM. I uploaded the file to a free storage site and sent the url to the governmental institute asking to download it to check. I came back home, took Maya-san for a morning walk, and left for Tokyo for a seminar of a graphic software I am using. I slept in the train. I got off … Continue reading
We had late breakfast at Starbucks. In the afternoon, we went out for a walk. For dinner, Katya bought hand-rolled sushi.
I stayed in my office last night to finish my works before the trip to Tokyo. This morning, I woke up at 5 AM in my office to finish them. I came back home at 10:30 AM. I took a shower, and Katya and I prepared for the trip. We left after noon. Katya drove on Chuo Freeway. It was cloudy. I sat on the backseat with Mariya. On the way to our destination, Odaiba, we stopped at Yoyogi Parking Area. There was a coffee shop, Doutor. We took a break there. I started driving after Katya. It rained on and off. We arrived at Tokyo Bay Ariake Washington … Continue reading
Today was Showa Day, a holiday. Everybody got on the car. First, we went to Nishimatsu Ya, a baby-goods shop. We went there to buy a shade for a baby carriage. Then we dropped by Starbucks to get a cup of coffee for me. Then we went back home. After a quick lunch, all of us got on Smart again to Midorigaoka Sports Park. We started a walk. Katya pushed the carriage and I was taking Maya-san with me. After some while, we switched. We placed Mariya in a chair again to go back home. For dinner, I went to Manpuru Roh again. Today’s dishes were … Continue reading
In the afternoon, Katya, Mariya, Maya-san and I went out for a walk around Takeda Shrine. It was a beautiful day like yesterday. Katya then left with Maya-san home for chores, while Mariya and I kept walking. I looked into her face during the walk, and she was happy for some while. However, Mariya started looking for her mother and became gloomy, so we headed for home together. For dinner, I went to Manpuku Roh to take out fried egg plants and stir-fried shrimp both with chili sauces. They cooked quickly; I only waited for 20 min. I like Chinese dishes for their convenience, not to mention the tastes. Katya and I … Continue reading
Katya, Mariya and I were invited to a new year party held at Katya’s friend’s who got married to a Japanese man. They have a boy of 7-year old. An Ukrainian-Japanese couple with two boys and a Russian lady with a girl were invited, too. The Russian lady was new to us. Katya made friends with her, and they decided to go to Tokyo some day. On Sunday, the 13th, the Ukrainian-Japanese family and us planned to go on a ski. It will be fun. Maya-san was safely keeping the house alone. After our arrival, everyone went out for a walk. I prepared a Shabushabu pot again with meat, vegetables, … Continue reading
Today is Saturday. I woke up and had a buffet breakfast in a restaurant Oceano, while Katya took care of Mariya. Then Katya had breakfast in turn. We have been very tired and sleepy after the birth of Mariya. We took a nap until 2 PM. We then went out for a walk. It was not rainy but windy and cold, so we soon walked back to the hotel. Katya and I took coffee and a cake in the lounge. In our room, we watched a sumo tournament held in Fukuoka. Katya somehow likes to watch sumo. Hakuho, the grand champion, won the tournament. At 6 PM, we went to … Continue reading
Yesterday, I went on a one-day business trip to Osaka. In the morning, I took Maya-san out for a walk, and went to Kofu station; I was going to Kobe today as I was asked to give a 20-minute talk in Kobe University tomorrow morning. This time, I took a plane using JAL miles. I charged two computers that I brought with me in a lounge in Haneda Airport. On the plane, the seat was by the left wing. It was full inside. The flight lasted for 45 min. A cup of coffee was served. A monorail stopped in front of the conference hall of Kobe University at 2 … Continue reading
Katya told me she had taken Maya-san and Mariya out for a walk. Big advance! I went back home to cook a Korean hot pot for dinner. It was OK. The soup is left. I will put noodles in a pot tomorrow for lunch.
I took Maya-san for a walk early in the morning and went to the hospital to see Katya. I arrived at 8 PM. Katya was already having labor-pains. I was with her all the time in the room. The baby was born at 15:45. Right after feeling the world, she started crying loud. I was relieved. Katya, too. The baby weighs 3,522 g. It was a big girl. We named her Mariya. Mariya was cleaned and brought on the Katya’s chest. I left them at 5:30 PM. At home, I told Maya-san that she has a little sister now.
