In the morning, I brought a full pot of curry to the institute’s dining room by mini, and put it in the refrigerator. After my English lesson, I started a curry party in the dining room. I invited nine students, including the Chinese student from France, and one young researcher not yet married. I had asked students to buy some drinks and nan at New Mahal. The party started after 6:30 PM. It was a pleasant dinner with a lot of conversation. They seemed to enjoyed the curry. It is a pity I forgot to take pictures. Maybe I will make them chili in winter.
Today is Constitution Day. I worked in the morning. At 3:30 PM, we left for Shimosuwa with Russian soup, salad, and Chili. We arrived at my parents’ before dinner. Anju, my sister’s dog, was there to welcome us. Mom prepared a wooden tub of sushi rice with a variety of ingredients sprinkled on. It became a big dinner. Maya-san was enviously watching us.
Katya, Maya-san, and I are planning to see my parents tomorrow. The day after tomorrow, Katya and I will leave for Hatsushima (sorry, Maya-san. Have a buffet time in Shimosuwa with my parents). So I continuously worked. Tomorrow morning, I will work, and this is it. Even, in the evening, I cooked chili con carne, which we will bring to my parents’. Katya will bring some Russian dishes, too.
It was cold last night. I had a slight cold. In the morning, we found the first snow in Kofu, 5 mm in depth. So we lazily got up late and stayed home except for Maya-san’s walks. After the breakfast, I started cooking chili, which I was not able to do yesterday. I took enough time to prepare today. It was a success. Nothing can be complained. We both took three bowls. We got so full.
Today’s Saturday. Katya went to see her friend in Minami Alps city, while I worked. I the morning, I felt I had a cold. At 5 PM, I was finishing my work, when a Ph. D. student came to my office with a confused look. He is to take the oral Ph. D. dissertation on Monday, but he was not confident. So, we went to a hall for a rehearsal. We commented on some points. It finished after 7 PM. I was planning to cook chili this evening but had no time now. Katya waited for me at Gusto and I joined her. I think he will be OK on … Continue reading
Leaves are falling down from the trees in the garden in front of my office building. I finished revising the paper and have sent it to the society by e-mail. For dinner, I cooked fettuccine imported from Italy with a basil source. The dish was a bit too salty, so having Chilian Merlot was not a bad idea. During diner, Katya told me that one of the teachers in her English school is quitting because of the administration issues. She was really upset. I recommended Katya to invite her once to our apartment.
Katya was out teaching this evening. While she was at work, I tried to cook chili again. This time, I used enough tomatoes. Although we could not find kidney beans, the taste was not only good, but also of genuine chili. Katya came back at 9:30 PM. We enjoyed it together.
One of the most important jobs in universities is writing papers. Even if you perform an excellent experiment, it will not be accepted as a scientific fact without a publication. Today, I received an e-mail notice saying the paper I had revised was accepted for publication in a scientific journal. It is good. I have been sitting on a chair for days in front of a computer. My back and shoulders are stiff. My effort is rewarded. I was preparing another paper, and it is done. I submitted it online this evening. I hope it will be accepted, soon. On Fridays, Katya sometimes works late. Today, I perpared chili con carne while she was … Continue reading
