So full and happy after a nice warm meal:

こんなになんにも考えないまったりとした週末は久しぶりだ。
昨日の夜松本についてからずっとこんな感じかな。
他の人が何してるか気にせず方針もみんなのために決めなくてもいい。
ただ流れに沿って行けば楽しい、美味しいことが起きるのは久しぶりだ。
前回親とどっかに行ったとき以来かな?
ああ、でも稽古の後の反省会もこんな感じかな?
なぜか同僚や年齢の近い人たちと一緒にどっか行くとどうしても人の面倒を見たがる自分。
人によっては面倒見甲斐のある人もいるが結局はつかれる自分。

But this weekend is all just going with the flow, enjoying good food and drink and seeing beautiful sights.
Starting at the night I arrived in Matsumoto with my father and his friend, we made our way to our family friend’s house.
Before reaching his house though, we stopped by a convenience store to get some snacks to go with sake.
There was a slight episode here including an angry balding man and a carelessly thrown comment but it ended without any casualties on either side as far as I know.
When angry people are saying unreasonable things or are trying to pick a fight, just agree with what they’re saying in a way that will make them back down.
If they feel the need to know that they’ve won, give them that satisfaction.
It costs you nothing.
Except maybe your pride if you believe that you lost.
But I say you’ve won, because you’ve successfully made them think they’ve won.
After they turn their backs, it’s all yours if you want it.

まぁ、とにかくその後友人の家について朝の三時頃までつまみを食べつつ酒を飲みました。
大雪渓という地酒の生酒の吟醸酒。
美味しい酒を飲みながら適当な楽しい話をする時間が朝三時頃まで続きました。
当然土曜の朝から山登り行く計画はなくなり次の日は九時頃まで寝ました。

After waking up at 0930 the next day we made breakfast and then decided to go for a short 30 min hike to the remnants of a castle in the mountains.
The sun started to come out just as we started and the sunlight through the leaves was almost like a set up scene.
It seemed that most of the castle was destroyed at some time or another so at the top was just an open area that looked like a perfect camping place.
Under cover of tree branches but open and flat enough to be comfortable.

そして今日の晩はきのこ鍋とまた大雪渓。
今回は純米吟醸。
これもまた美味しかった。
腹いっぱいに食べたのは久しぶりだ。
幸せすぎて眠くなってきた・・・
今日はもう寝よう。
明日は朝早くからまたは行くらしいし。
その後にはまた神奈川に帰って明後日の仕事に備えて寝ないと。
・・・
仕事か〜・・・
まぁ、今週末はできるだけ充電することだな。
