Great Grapes: 2

Standard

Here is 紅環=beni-tamaki, whose pretty looking and sweetness moved Mei-Shun so much — delicacies come not only from kitchens but farmland. She is a fruit lover like her beloved father, while sweets are quite liked by mother’s side as well. Why does she continue to talk about dessert? It is because she deserves it tonight by labor indoors and dance outdoors.

Too Good

Standard

Meow, mom gives me a tiny bowl of milk these days. It is one of my favorite treats, purr. She dilutes a teaspoon of it with an equal amount of water, makes creamy dip. “Bon appétit,” she says and serve it to me who attends her every meal at home. By the way, it is you who have a big appetite today, isn’t it? Two mountains of rice in a normal 茶碗 seems to mean a large size.

Great Grapes: 1

Standard

Shin gave Mei-Shun a wonderful dessert; brilliant, edible jewelry of titled fruit. Grown by Mr. I called “master”, a box of Shining Muscat, 巨峰=kyoho and 紅環=beni-tamaki delivered last night. The wife loves green ones like the 1st, maybe descends from Alexandria via Rosário. Black ones like the 2nd is quite normal, yet all different from the same breed sold at supermarkets.

Twig Treat

Lunar September starts from today, meaning 朔 at night. Mei-Shun dropped in the nearest shrine on the way to home after dancing with Princess Maria. She drew two omikuji lots as usual, one for Shin and the other for herself. Here is the result; 小吉 meaning a little lucky, while 末吉 the least. Since the latter says travel would not be good, she bound it beside 狛犬 N-chan wishing his/her protection.

After 7Y + 25Wks

… and 3 days have passed since Mei-Shun left the hospital when Dr. A kindly gave her a “Yes” phone call this afternoon. The former lady said that next CT scheduled on 14th, March 2023 could be the last. Well, that scanning is no burden if added to one of half-an-year checks. And her body under neck, above legs are precisely examined. Only good things it has.

Thanks a million, Mr. M. You are the first rucksack Mei-Shun purchased. It might be decades before when she started to work for N. Co., Ltd. after graduating from an university. She met Shin there, while just a good friend at the time she fell in love with you. Always on her back in walking, your logotype print was removed little by little, string seams frayed.

On and Over

Standard

Powerful Typhoon Nanmadol or No. 14 in 2022 made amazing 4 landfalls; 1st on 鹿児島=Kagoshima, 2nd 福岡=Fukuoka, 3rd 島根=Shimane and the last 新潟=Niigata this morning. Born nearby 小笠原=Ogasawara in Tokyo, it came from southern Kyushu to the north, did similar from western Honshu to the east. Mei-Shun is forced to stay home all day long; studying, cleaning, practicing 松の緑 and playing Ms. Piano.

Meow, Respect-for-the-Aged Day of 2022 is the same to my birthday. Does it mean me of 19 years old on 19th by chance? At least mom never takes it so. She calls me the sweetest honey ever in the last year of teens, purr. And dad, great to find you in 上海 from yesterday, cleared 10-day quarantine at 青島. We promise to keep “good girls” until welcome you back home.

Reverent Regards

Yuko-san, one of Mei-Shun’s best friends since high school, kindly sent the latter a brilliant gift. Preserved roses greeting from a tiny white piano are in a transparent box. Here is your little sister, Ms. Piano. Now you are full of pink items including her, a face-cloth used as Mikan-chan’s cushion on Ms. Scarlet, dried roses for Shin and a big cotton scarf from Professor M.

Cool Creation

Purr, this is the day for me and mom to visit Arles, our favorite pâtisserie in Tsukuba. A bit cloudy and dry, it is the best for her to clean and wash. Please do not do too much, you have reservations at the horsey riding club tomorrow. I’m always happy to accompany you, asking my tall friends to stay gentle. And it is your duty to look healthy in a web camera for dad.
