Last night, Chobi slept over on the new sofa.
I’m happy that I could see him in a morning.
He will come down sometimes, not always.
From overseas, Japan is being evaluated a slow response country and Japanese citizens look like lacking a sense of crisis.
I see and hear those kind of news these days.
Yes, there are some people who just don’t care things, but that’s not unique in Japan.
A certain amount of people of that nature do exist. Maybe one in ten.

Japan would have it in the end of April.
On a personal level,

My mom goes out once or twice a month for a cat food.
My older brother has finally switched to WFH since last week. The company he is working for was too late to decide to do so, I was frustrated about it.
Now all of us staying at home.
We have lunch or dinner together on weekends.
I jog once or twice a week.
My partner needs a weight rack, but a gym is a subject of temporary-close-business order until May.
He searched and found “one-person management training room” that is available on an hourly basis. It’s for an individual use.
