由紀先生、今日は。

例文を作って、「気を許す」を調べてくれてありがとうございます。
「気を許す」は役に立つ表現だと思います。

Thank you for making that example sentence, and for doing that research on 気を許す on my behalf. I think it will be a useful expression.

モノノフしょうがない さん、
今日は。
奈津子先生の代わりに「どういたしまして。」。
I could not find any stories or original meanings of 気を許す.
However, it’s often used like
あの男にはまだ気を許せない.
I don’t trust him completely yet. Or I can’t yet put my complete confidence in him.

奈津子先生、こんにちは。

表現を教えてくれてありがとうございます。とても面白かったんです。
私は表現を必ず使うと思います。もしかしてテレビを見ているときにも表現を聞こえるかもしれません。
Thank you for showing me those expressions. That was most interesting. I am sure I will be using these again. Perhaps I’ll hear them when watching tv as well.

So 危険と隣り合わせです literally means I am “next to danger”, and corresponds to that idea I was trying to express about the potential for bad things to happen in the situation I has described. This is another new one for me, 気を許す, “to let one’s guard down”. So literally permitting the spirit? Is there a story behind this expression, or maybe a special way that I should understand it?

モノノフしょうがないさん、
こんにちは。

Hmm…’healthy respect to dangerous tools’…
I don’t think we have a similar expressions in Japanese. Your sentence 危ない道具をよく理解しています
seems just perfect. If you want to add that you actually use such tools a lot and used to them,
you can say 私は危ない道具は使い慣れています and together with next sentence,
私は、危ない道具は使い慣れていますから、不注意だととても危険なこともよく知っています。
The part ‘things go badly’ is not what we can verbatim. You might want to know the expression
危険と隣り合わせです which means you’re next to danger (or, more literally, you and danger are next
to each other).
私は、危ない道具は使い慣れていますから、危険と隣り合わせであることもよく知っています。
私は、危ない道具は使い慣れていますから、ちょっと気を許すととても危険なこともよく知っています。

由紀先生、今日は。

So ほぼ通常に戻っています is a more natural way of saying that “things are almost back to normal”? Thank you very much. That’s a good one for me to know.

ご心配をありがとうございます。私は危ない道具をよく理解しています。不注意なら早速悪くなります。
Thank you for your concern. I have a healthy respect for dangerous tools. I know that if I am careless, things can go badly really fast.

By the way, when I was trying to write “healthy respect for dangerous tools”in Japanese, being an English expression rather than a literal meaning, I wasn’t sure how to say it. By “healthy respect”, I mean that I fully understand the dangers of the tools and do not treat them lightly, always being careful, etc. Is there a similar expression in Japanese that is appropriate for what I was trying to say above?

モノノフしょうがないさん、
今日は。
ほぼ通常に戻ってよかったですね。
でも、木を切らなければならないのですね。
本当に気をつけてください。

I am happy almost all things are back to normal.
However, you still have to cut trees.
Please be careful seriously.

奈津子先生、

こんにちは。元の状態になることを祈っていてありがとうございます。
今はほとんど正常です。でも、外にはまだ折れた木が多いです。
じゃあ、チェーンソーをかける時間です。事故に遭わないように気をつけます。😇

( Hello Natsuko-sensei. Thank you for your thoughtfulness. Things are basically back to normal now. Although, there are still many broken trees outside. Well, it looks like it’s time to fire up the chainsaw. I’ll be care careful not to have any accidents. )
