Horrible Halloween

Standard

Mikan-chan looked all right in the morning, yet the evil stone hit her while Mei-Shun went out. Such a trick – any treat will be served for her good health. Sleep well, keep warm. Oh, your sweet purring … Good girl.

To Our Convenience

Standard

Mei-Shun drove on the highway toward Ibaraki Airport to pick up Shin. We found it the most convenient for trip to Kansai area, either for business or pleasure – no traffic jam, taking just an hour, wide and free parking space. Thanks, Mr. Governor.

This is it.

Standard

The last lesson before the stage was given to Mei-Shun, with a little corrections and a sign of “Okay, go ahead and enjoy” from Master Mei-Shu. Rehearsal will be held on Saturday followed by Sunday’s performance.

Warmer Bed

Standard

Mini-blankets in lime green and biscuit orange arrived on the sofa. As it gets colder, Mikan-chan needs more warm items added to hug, curling on mom’s lap and getting into her cap-shaped bed.

Black Out, Blue On

Standard

In the evening, a sudden cacophony of thunder fell, let all lights off. Only cooking fires with which Mei-Shun was preparing dinner left on. Simmering sound and blue gas fire caught our attention until TV voice, microwave alarm, phone recorder, etc. came back to cover them. 5-minute halcyon, old days might be a gift from the nature.

Invitation to Kyoto!

Standard

Ms. KOGASHIWA, Kaori gave Mei-Shun an invitation to her first exhibition held in Kyoto, titled “Ohanashi-no-Ki-no-Shita-de” (=Under the Tree of Stories) from Nov. 22 to Dec. 3. She has been good at drawing since her high-school days, currently works as an illustrator. Congratulations, Kaori-san.

Fashionable Flower

Standard

Mei-Shun’s husband Shin sometimes brings home a bouquet, in which orange, meaning Mikan in Japanese, often appears followed by blue and white. It seems any color coordination is available for flowers – we human beings would not look as stylish as this arrangement in these three colors, won’t we?
