Nicer Numbers

Standard

We have today a full moon or 十五夜, the one at 15th night on lunar November 15th, while 七五三=7-, 5- and 3-year-old celebration. Mei-Shun takes such a coincidence somehow mysterious — only odd numbers gather on a solar date of an even number. By the way, Shin kindly handed her a box of くろ玉=sweet black balls yesterday. And oh, where have 2 of them already gone?

Enjoy Eggs

Standard

Meow, it is the first time for me to see these seashells from Portugal. The same for mom as well, who does not know if any lady sells them on the seashore, yet quite likes this souvenir dad brought home. One bite let her remind of 鶏卵素麺=noodle-shaped, sweetened egg yolk. It is a well-known brand in Fukuoka, Kyushu which was exclusively opened toward foreign countries from Edo Period.

Aurora Art

Standard

Shin went on a business trip to Germany through weekend, returned to Mei-Shun yesterday evening. Time difference and a long flight forced the wife to miss his arrival message at Frankfurt, while let him see a great Christmas gift in the sky. Thanks to a route via the North Pole they took, and a fluffy angel who asked her mom to get into his suitcase together.

Mild Marine

Standard

Here comes a new kettle to serve Mei-Shun. Among various coloring for this product, she took above the best. Shin also chose it by chance, when his wife offered images on Internet. Named “seabed”, it shows the maximum level of water: one-finger below spout. Well, is it similar to Ms. Iron? If so, it might be this careless user who broke that diligent predecessor.

Farewell, Friend

Standard

Mei-Shun got on Ms. Scarlet at 11 : 22 to see Dr. M, her home dentist for oral cleaning, new mouthpiece preparation and … removal of Ame-chan. Before going tense and sad, she dropped in one of her favorite bakeries. Hello baguettes, whose width is just equivalent to her mouth. 3 with peanut butter spread between slits, other 3 with milk cream. Please stay sweet girls until she returns lively.

Green to Gold

Standard

The last solar month of 2022 starts. Mei-Shun meant to visit the nearest shrine on foot, yet canceled it with so cold a wind from the north and sporadic rainfall. How is that big gingko tree, whose golden yellow coat she admires? In his place did she pick up fan-shaped leaves fell on verandah floor. Yes, the same breed in our backyard finally decided to change clothes.

Clear Color

Standard

Mom cleaned up rooms yesterday to draw Mr. Blue from 押入れ=Japanese-style closet again, purr. Since it is said to be freezing in December, she decided to get him ready for dad who is more sensitive to such weather than me. Another news came to her exultation: a sumo wrestler she likes will return to a 関取=seki-tori, up into 十両 rank after a whole year.

Keep Kettle

Standard

Even if Ms. Iron is injured, she serves enough for Mei-Shun, a tea lover who chose Chinese gray friends today. Oh, a 茶柱=tea pillar nicely stands in a mug, lets her know something good would happen soon. It might be true or wished to; we have 仏滅=butsu-metsu, the worst among 六曜 while gloomy sky. And slight rainfall began just after she hung futon mats outdoors.

Slack Spot

Standard

What on the gas stove happened to you, Ms. Iron? When one of burners sounded that hot water was ready in you this morning, Mei-Shun put on an oven mitt as usual. Feeling something weird, she took it off to find a part melted — instead of burned. You seem to drip from shut between spout and body, honey. Please let her say thanks and good-bye.

Found Fluffy

Standard

Meow, mom walked to a hair salon this morning. In a few seconds to reach there, she saw a breed of mine enjoy sunlight beside a window. Her beautician knows it named Momo-chan, the same to our garden princess. Yes, 99% 三毛猫=calico cats are girls. It might be why above tricolor tea cup was served, while she was waiting for medicine to  permeate her hair.
