Today is Greenery Day. I wanted to get up late, but woke up at 5 AM because of the paper screen used in the room, which let the sun light in. I had breakfast with my parents. Katya decided not to come because of Mariya being tired after the trip. With Maya-san, I drove by Lake Suwa. On the way, I dropped by a rest area “Shinshu Tsutakijuku“. I took a bowl of Soba noodle. There was a small garden behind. On the riverside, people were camping. Maya-san is a hole digger. I bought a bottle of apple juice, a cheese cake, and blueberry jam for Katya. After … Continue reading
We checked out the hotel around 11 AM after having breakfast. With all the goods bought in Odaiba packed in, I started driving Smart with Katya and Mariya on the back seat. We took a highway through downtown Tokyo. The traffic was smooth. The sky was blue. Today is Constitution Day, a holiday. Traffic jams from Tokyo were expected. Therefore, after driving through downtown, we got off Chuo Freeway at Inagi to avoid a jam. I found a newly-opened convenience store, Lawson, so I decided to take a break there. Ponta, the Lawson mascot, was helping the opening of the store. I took a coffee, Mariya got surrounded by toys, … Continue reading
We are planning to spend two nights in Tokyo from tomorrow. So we were preparing for the trip. In the afternoon, I went back to my apartment from the institute; my parents from Shimosuwa were already at ours. They came to take care of Mariya for a couple of hours for Katya, then to take Maya-san to theirs during our stay in Tokyo. We saw them off, and I took mini to the optician’s to get my disposable contact lens. Actually, I found the hospital closed on the Tuesday afternoon when I got there, but driving mini was fun as usual, anyway. For the lens, I will used the old one … Continue reading
I have been happy but sleepy with Mariya. These days, I got used to the situation, so I restart my blog. This morning, I had a beef-bowl breakfast at Yoshinoya near Kofu Station; the price of a bowl was lowered to 280 yen because of the increase in beef imported from USA after the BSE issue. Taste was good. Then I took a train first to a company in Kanda, Tokyo, to discuss a computer simulation of the results of my project. It seems that we will be able to write a good joint paper. The company is now improving their own simulation program using our data. They are planning … Continue reading
Katya, Mariya, Maya-san and I left our apartment for Shimosuwa at 4:30 PM. Katya drove me to Shimosuwa Production Support Center directly for my talk. She then went to my parents’, left Maya-san, and, with Mariya, went to see her Ukrainian friend living in Shimosuwa. In the seminar, eleven people came to listen to me, who were managers and engineers of small industrial companies in/around Shimosuwa. They wanted to have some hints of the business in the near future. My talk started at 6:30 and ended at 8:30 PM, with many questions. It seemed that they had understood me. The director asked a visit of some of the members to our institute … Continue reading
Today’s Saturday. In the morning, there were monthly presentations by students, which ended at noon. A student of mine, who got sick in the lab, did his turn, too. He did well. However, I try not to have him work too much. I went back home at 5:30 PM, then Katya went out for shopping. I was with Mariya, who was mostly sleeping. I wished she had been a little bit active with me.
Mariya cries and wakes up during the night time; I wake up, too. I need some sleep. This evening, I slept with Mariya and Maya-san.
In the afternoon, I went to Kofu station to pick up my parents, who came to see Mariya and to go to the shrine with us. Very unfortunately, it started raining. The rain was not so heavy, but we did not want Mariya to get cold. So we decided not to go to the shrine. In our apartment, we dressed up Mariya white for taking pictures in the studio. Mom bought her a new kimono. A van came to our apartment, and all of us except Maya-san got it on to the studio with the new red kimono for Mariya with us. At the studio, many pictures were taken. I will … Continue reading
It is Saturday today. Usually, I work in my office until 7 PM. Today, however, I came back home at 3 PM after going to see a doctor for my nose. With Maya-san and Mariya, Katya and I went out for a walk together for the second time. Then Katya went out alone for shopping and a haircut; Mariya’s first visit to the shrine is scheduled for tomorrow, after one month of her birth, and my parents are coming for it. I was playing with Mariya while Katya was out. After a couple of hours, Mariya seemed uneasy and started crying. I understood that she was hungry. I started making … Continue reading
Yesterday, after the registration of Mariya as a Kofu citizen at the city hall, I received a certificate of her presence in Kofu. Today, at my university, I applied for an insurance card for Mariya with the certificate, which will cover 70% of the medical costs. This evening, I bathed Mariya. Then I played with her to make her tired before the night comes, so that she will sleep rather deeply. Mariya was sometimes put in a baby car and sometimes held in my arms.
