Jingisukan BBQ dinner on Sunday

It is Sunday today. When I woke up, it was raining. I took Maya-san out for a walk in the morning. She was a good girl enough not to hesitate to walk in the rain, which is not very often. After the walk, Katya drove to Jonathan’s. I read a newspaper, while Katya an internet magazine with her iPad.    Drinks in Jonathan’s are better than in Gusto, so we might be going to have Sunday breakfasts in Jonathan’s, although Gusto is in the walking distance from our apartment. Then we went to “Pet Field” to see live rocks to be put in a fish tank. We did not buy … Continue reading

Katya’s Birthday, August 21, 2012

After we got up, I gave Katya a small present for her birthday. I bought it in Korea and kept it. Then I took Maya-san for a morning walk (as a tiny extra birthday present), and left home. In the late afternoon, Katya came by Smart and we went together to Red Lobster. I had reserved seats for us. There were some customers even on a weekday.  We are glad because we have been worried about the withdrawal of Red Lobster from Kofu. We found that it is “Crab day” today on Tuesday, when we get some discounts. We ordered a lobster.       For Katya’s birthday, they took pictures … Continue reading

Second day of the summer vacation

In the morning, I took Maya-san to Arakawa River Park. The lawn was faded by the heat. Maya-san walked on grasses. I went to Gusto for breakfast. I read two newspapers. When I turned on TV, Sharapova was with a Japanese comedian, who went to London to interview athletes. The interview was funny. Today’s Sunday, so I spend a lazy life with Maya-san.

Taking care of Maya-san

Katya seems to be having fun in Vladivostok. She tells me that the weather is so nice there. Her parents are, of course, happy to have her. I am happy about it, too. I am OK, but it takes a lot of time taking care of Maya-san. I take her out three times a day. Besides, I have lunch together. When I try to work home after dinner, Maya-san always comes to me; she must have been lonely alone in the apartment. Therefore, my working time became less, and I am trying to, somehow, figure it out.

Quick business trip to Ichigaya, Tokyo on Saturday

Today is Saturday. I took a bike to Kofu Station for taking a train to Tokyo; I was going to talk with a company man about a new electrical leakage breaker, which should decrease the electricity cost of the apartment in Nakaochiai. I took a train starting at 12:11 PM. I had bought a hamburger “Le Grand” at McDonald’s. ”Le Grand“ is a Frenchy hamburger based on “Le M” sold in France. I tried it on the train. It was not for me.  I did not like the bans and sausage. I prefer Big Mac. I arrived in “Ichigaya” at 2 PM. I met the guy and talked for 30 min in … Continue reading

Katya left home for Vladivostok

In the morning, I took Maya-san out for a walk while Katya was preparing for the departure. I drove Katya to Kofu station.  Maya-san was not with us because Katya did not want to let her down.
