Beautiful autumn morning! Maya-san went out to a veranda, and took a morning sunbath.
After breakfast, we decided to go to Kiyosato for Maya-san’s hole-digging. Maya-san is an athlete, and she used to run a lot. Now she is not allowed to run because of her weak hind legs, so hole-digging is her adequate exercise now, as far as we think; she uses only her front legs and her mouth.
Kiyosato was developed as a new resort area. When the economy was good in Japan, many people visited. Now it is sort of deserted, but I think the place still has a potential to be popular again. It is rather close to Tokyo, and rich nature remains.
We went to “Kiyosato no Mori“.
Photos showing how she digs.
She started to dig a second hole after an hour.
Maya-san, it is enough!
We had two okonomiyakis at “Hickory Farms” for lunch.
We left Kiyosato early for home. From 5 to 7 PM, we had made a reservation for tennis in a “Midorigaoka Sports Park“. The light rain started just before we arrived at the tennis court. We played in the rain. The rain did not stop, so we quit before 6 PM.
After coming home, we took a bath with natural-hot-spring powder to make our bodies warm up.
After a light dinner, I constructed a framework of a bookshelf. I will install shelves tomorrow. I think our future library, present storeroom, will look better.
