This is minazuki, a Japanese sweet to eat today for Nagoshi-no-Harae. A half piece would be dedicated to your past half-year life, while another half to wish your happiness in left half of current year.
… with a mushroom. Maybe because of rainy weather, our pot plants sometimes accompany this light-yellow one in the morning. Never looks tasty, removed immediately.
Please be careful. Mei-Shun suddenly suffered an allergy with it. After eating one, she felt a bit itchy around the mouth, looked in the mirror. Three red rashes were found! It is so shocking for her, a fruit lover. A steroidal medicine worked well, yet she has to refrain from that lovely, tasty darling for a while.
You can find snowmen, cats, sea shells, etc. among these accessories hand-made by Professor S. Not only an excellent designer, she is also a fine judge for cute jewelries. Mei-Shun once accompanied to her favorite shop in Okachimachi, Tokyo. So many kind of beads are hung on the wall that it looks like a museum.
Seeing mild sunshine in the morning, Mei-Shun was happy to hang futon bed mats and blankets. And in the afternoon, it suddenly started. Cold wind blew into our area. Raindrops followed to change into a storm immediately. This is what we call “guerrilla rainfall”, maybe because nobody can expect place and time of their attack.
Mei-Shun went to Tokyo for a lecture and test to keep a certificate necessary in her job. And today has the summer solstice, yet dark clouds prevented us from seeing the latest sunset of this year. As always, we have to say — it comes in the middle of rainy season. A little bit lonely.
