Today is Saturday, and people who are off work come to my clinic, so I’m usually busy on Saturdays and Sundays, but for some reason I don’t have many reservations today. I knew that in advance, so I decided to take Konatsu with me.
It looks like you’re worried about “where I’ll be taken! ” but today, you’re going to be a therapy dog!
Passing in front of Tsurugaoka Hachimangu in the early morning, we are heading for the Yokohama – Yokosuka Expressway.
After that, drive along the Metropolitan Expressway Bayshore Line. It will arrive in a little over an hour on Saturday because the road is empty.
さあ到着です。道の向こうに見えるのがクリニックで、今私が居る所がカウンセリングルーム。 It’s arrival. The clinic is on the other side of the road, and the place where I am now is the counseling room.
Today, I would like to introduce the restaurant menu of Karuizawa Regina Resort Mikage Irrigation Water, which I went on a trip last week, and the soba restaurant that I stopped by during the trip. Regina’s breakfast and dinner are more delicious than they look. The soba restaurant in the latter half is delicious and unbearable for soba lovers.
I found out such an excellent goods at my travel destination last week. This is to pour wine with a needle without opening the cork of wine, but as much as you pour, argon gas with a purity of 99.99% will enter the bottle. The wine does not come into contact with the air and continues to age in the bottle, so the taste does not change even after many months.
The terrace seats here can be accompanied by dogs, and as you can see in the photo above, each seat has a heating facility for the terrace, and it seems that warm air is probably coming out from above as well. This is okay even when it’s a little cold.
The second day of our Karuizawa trip. It is Kumoba Pond in the early morning. I went there in anticipation of the autumn leaves, but most of the leaves were scattered and it seems that it was about a week late.
Looking at the road information, there were so many repair work points that I thought, “What’s this!”, And when I entered the Chuo Expressway, there was a sign saying “Congestion 7km 40 minutes” from Otsuki JCT to Sasago Tunnel. The photo at that time.
I’m heading to Karuizawa. Normally, I would take Route 141 from here and head north through Kobuchisawa-Kiyosato, but today I would like to take a different route. Return to the Chuo Expressway again, make a big turn from the Nagano Expressway to the Joshinetsu Expressway, and get off at the Saku IC.
On the way, the Chikuma River seen from Obasute SA.
Arrived in Karuizawa and took a walk in the evening.
After the shampoo cut, the veterinarian checked the whole body to see if Konatsu was in good physical condition, but I found an inflammation of about 1 cm on the right flank. I was asked by Dr, “Did Konatsu have any pretense that her body was itchy and scratching?”, But I can’t think of anything in particular. It looks red and swollen and begins to suppurate. “I’ll give Konatsu an injection of anti-suppuration and give her a week’s worth of medicine,” he said. Konatsu was lucky to have shampoo and cut today.
It was like this. On the other hand, the weight of Konatsu is 18.5kg, which is 900g less than the previous 19.4kg, which is effective for dieting! However, even if she has been on a diet for the past few months, I cannot let her guard down because it is increasing or decreasing.
My mother used to use nursing care several times a month, but from this September she moved into a nursing home. Now, going to attend a monthly health checkup is an opportunity to meet my mother, and today is the day.
There is a hospital on the same site, and my wife push my mother’s wheelchair to the hospital…
Today, Konatsu went with us and met my mother for the first time in a while.
As expected, the healing power of the dog at such times seemed to be great, and my mother smiled happily.
Sakurashinmachi “Takeno to Ohagi”, which is also introduced on TV.
Expectations grow from the moment I see this beautiful package.
Are you expecting too? (lol)
When you open the lid, it’s more like Japanese sweets than Ohagi. I’m wondering which one to take. Ohagi is a type of Japanese bean cake, rice ball coated with sweetened red beans, soybean flour or sesame.
It seems that the menu is different every day, and today these 7 types
It seems that Konatsu is saying, “Don’t you eat yet? I’m hungry.”
Finally, recently, such a sign has been displayed in a park in Kamakura City. This is wrong and problematic, judging from the Kanagawa Prefecture Ordinance and the Kamakura City Ordinance. I would like to take up it at a later date.
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.
My wife took the time to cook a lot, starting with the appetizer. (Back left) Cucumber and squeezed vegetables with sesame seeds (Back right) Squid and celery with lemon dressing (Front left) Octopus, kimchi, avocado sauce (Front right) Stir-fried king trumpet and green pepper
Raw shirasu is approaching the closed season.
Konatsu loves raw shirasu.
Maitake mushroom frit
Sashimi of local fish. If so, Konatsu will appear here as well!
Eat with filefish’s liver
“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!
