I can’t write an article about Konatsu today, so it’s a miscellaneous feeling. I am on a business trip to Gunma today and tomorrow. While driving on the Kan-Etsu Expressway on the way, the area near the summit of the mountain range (probably in the direction of Mt. Tanigawa and Mt. Asahi ahead of Minakami Onsen) looks vaguely white. There is no snow on Mt. Asama yet. When I arrived in Gunma, it was unexpectedly warm and surprising. Recently, Mt. Aso has erupted, pumice stones from the eruption of submarine volcanoes have flowed, and small earthquakes have occurred here and there. I hope that no major disaster will occur.
Kanra Town, Gunma Prefecture, where I work this time. The idyllic scenery as usual.
The state of emergency was lifted, and yesterday the number of newly infected COVID-19 in Kanagawa Prefecture was nine. So I invited two friends to think that it would be okay to have a dinner for about four people.
Konatsu felt a different sign from usual, she felt ansty from a while ago.

“Is there anything else I can eat yet?” she looked up at the table.
Next was radish steak Cooking and liquor go on and on
soybean curry, mozzarella cheese and cherry tomatoes with French bread.
Japanese-style beef stew, miso flavor.
ようやくご飯 Finally rice
A disappointing face that I don’t have anything to eat anymore.
The dessert is a cake made from persimmons in my garden. it was a fun time
Sometimes she is a faithful dog waiting for my wife to return in front of the front door. At this time, it took about 20 minutes for my wife to come back, but she kept waiting without moving this place.
さて、久しぶりに高校野球の話 Well, it ’s been a while since I ’ve been talking about high school baseball.
In Japan, a competition is held every year in which high schools from all over the country participate and compete for the best in Japan. My alma mater ⑥ came in 3rd place in the prefectural tournament this time and got the right to participate in the Tokai regional tournament. They will be able to compete in the national tournament next spring if they are in second place in this tournament. So, at the end of the month, I will go to support!
Now that we came with two families, we wanted to have a fun meal together, so we asked the staff to prepare for four people in the room of Anne-family. A table for four people is set in the room, but it is a luxurious dinner that can not be put on the table alone.
This is my work room in Gunma. I am a dental worker, and as a reminder to all of you, a system that allows you to use your Individual Number Card as an insurance card will start this month. If you would like to know more details, please click link above.
Konatsu rarely walked to a place close to everyone. But she’s just doing this. Since the time when Konatsu first came here 10 years ago, the generations have gradually changed, and finally Konatsu has become the oldest. “For the time being, I can’t give up my oldest position.”
This time I went to a concert in Karuizawa with my wife and daughter and planned to stay overnight at Regina Mikage Irrigation. I bought tickets about two months ago without knowing that the state of emergency would be lifted at the end of September, but as expected, the highway to go was heavily congested. Car accidents occurred in several places along the way, and it took more than 5 hours to reach Karuizawa.
Konatsu in a traffic jam. She is leaning against my wife with the expression “I’m tired of it.”
After 1:30 pm, we barely arrived at Karuizawa Ohga Hall 30 minutes before the performance started.
Today is Kotaro Fukuma’s piano recital. Bach & Mendelssohn
Although it is a rather small hall with a capacity of about 700 people, it is a hall donated by Sony Chairman Oga and has a characteristic sound. It feels like the piano sound is heard from around the center of the audience.
We enjoyed the concert for about two hours and then headed to Regina Resort Karuizawa.
When we came here last time, when I asked for the M size of this, it seemed that Konatsu was not enough, so this time I tried to make it the L size. I thought it was a little too much, but it was completely eaten. ~ It’s been a little longer so to be continued. ~
