Happy Birthday

Standard

to you, Mikan-chan. You always give mom Mei-Shun great pleasure; your sweet voice soothes her mind, your shining green eyes are beautiful enough to let her feel just satisfied. What shall she and Shin do to celebrate this precious day? They would like to serve your favorite jelly every day, yet do not know how to cook it pH-controlled. Please stay with us for long in 一病息災=ichibyo-sokusai, one disease would keep you healthy.

Lunar August

Standard

We see the slightest moon tonight. With 朔, the best day to make a wish tomorrow, Mei-Shun is still wondering how to get along with her diet. Since it has become cooler as Mikan-chan mentioned recently, perspiration during walking and horse riding is not so much compared to the one in summer. Maybe another method is necessary — “once-a-week sweets” is on the top of candidate methods list.

Japanese Culture@holiday

Standard

Mei-Shun’s favorite tea shop, one of branches closed recently, sent her a letter of invitation. 蔵出し新茶=kuradashi-shincha, stored tea of the first harvest, has been “ripened” in a refrigerator for half an year since 八十八夜, they say. With a discount ticket enclosed, she would like to visit another shop at the nearest train station soon to reserve some.

Up and Down

Standard

On mom’s legs, look at my chatty tail. Since it is cool early in the morning and at night these days, I’d love to stay here. However, she is too busy to sit down and hold me every time I ask her to. Meow, do not therefore blame me when you find futon mats, quilt blankets and cushions soiled. It was not me who made them a rest room, hiss! Someone I don’t know did it. Just relax with me. Purr … purrrr …

Pls Be Healthy

Standard

Master Mei-Shu gave Mei-Shun a phone call the other day. Actually, she made this August a summer vacation, gave her students no lessons. It seemed the first time for the master to intend to stop dancing for a month in these several years — and to lengthen the intermission for another month. Not only a pain in thigh caused by osteoporosis, rapid weight loss harasses her.

Autumnal Garden

Standard

Our 萩=hagi, Japanese bush clover is in 80% bloom. Roses are in half, normal pink and vine white. What attracted Mei-Shun’s attention most was that the latter looked salmon pink a few days before, turn to white with red trimming later. It has not been recognized in such unique shades. Hi, little boy, did you flush stared by a woman? Please relax and grow further to reach the brick wall facing to a street.

Windy Water

Standard

Mei-Shun walked around 乙戸沼 Park after a long time — almost one month and a half since she visited there in July. Yes, she missed you, Mr. and Mrs. Cormorant. Great to see fountains make upside-down umbrella in the center of the pond again. Oh? it looks a bit distorted by just a breeze, depending on direction maybe. And mom, they are the flowers you mentioned before, aren’t they?
