Lunar July starts with tonight’s 朔=saku. What would Mei-Shun wish? Of course, success in her weight management. Actually, it has stopped losing for 12 weeks so far. She lost more than 2 bags of sugar in the first month, thanks to 8-hour carbo method. That means it works well to keep her current shape. Well, one more sack is necessary to go for health, several more for vogue.
Baby clothes purify bad luck.
Already gone this morning, Mei-Shun found them blooming in the last two the other day. How brilliant your dress is, graceful your figure is! Attracted so much, she drew omikuji on behalf of Shin and for herself. His was 吉=kichi, lucky while hers 小吉=sho-kichi, a little. Interestingly, they had serial numbers in 47th and 48th saying; he would be blessed by Gods after patient efforts, she be helped by other people before blessed.
Ms. Piano would see Mr. O soon, looks happy after Mei-Shun arranged an appointment with the skilled tuner for her. She recently sounds better in “A Maiden’s Prayer” by T. Badarzewska, gives Mei-Shun a good finger practice. Then she moves into Debussy, Chopin and J. Hisaishi. In the last album, “Fantasia for Nausicaä” has almost been completed, next one would be “Merry-go-round of Your Life”.
You have run so much kilometers in safe so far. Please kindly take our sincere gratitude. However, something weird often sounds from your engine these days. Your coatings on the roof, bonnet and rear bumper have begun to blur. Oh, how heartbreaking it is for Mei-Shun who took you over from her late father. She has to wait for another guy to replace you soon, handing you to Shin who has less time to drive.
Mei-Shun’s favorite tea shop closed yesterday. She visited there with Shin to get bowls respectively; she asked him to choose one as a gift, he did the same to her. On the other hand, a saddle pad below is for Vanilla Arc only — oh, lovely Maria, you may share this with him. Mei-Shun’s current one is in navy, meant to be specific to Madoka-chan at first, yet used on every horsey who played her partner so far.
Hello, dragonfly. You would always love to stay on our laundry stand, or on car antennas especially when we spread water to cool them down in sunbathing. Actually, following photo was taken last week when it was clear. Their transparent wings seem to work better on such days, not in the rain. Mei-Shun feels so sorry for them, with weather forecasts calling current one the coolest obon in 40 years.
Thank you so much, Dr. A, who gave Mei-Shun a “Yes” phone call during this o-bon vacation. That became the happiest お盆玉 for the latter. She celebrated it with a glass of tasty 月の桂=tsuki-no-katsura, a cloudy and sparkling sake made in Kyoto. Scotch whiskey, 芋焼酎=imo-shochu and 泡盛=awamori are normally preferred, it has never brought her a hangover.
