That’s the Q

Standard

Mei-Shun felt a slight pain in her upper right jaw the other day. Yes, right this time. She immediately contacted her home dentist to make an appointment with Dr. M today. First, a little hole with dirt seemed to be the reason. However, when the doctor removed it, a crack was found within — such a shame. So 4th of next month would be the date of destiny. To save, or not to save.

Too Soon

Standard

It is a bit, darling. 萩=hagi, bush clover in our garden might make a mistake by cool weather from last Friday. Since summer has come back with mercury over 30 degrees Celsius today, Mei-Shun is worried about you. Please do not try to go into full bloom, just stay on her kimono. Autumn flowers are to be featured on traditional Japanese clothes and sweets according to lunar calendar.

Thanks a million, Shin. He brought Mei-Shun a lovely bouquet made of sunflower, rose and mint. “Since you heard frail,” he told his wife the reason. Such a little surprise always makes her the happiest. And ball-point-pens featuring summer flowers are also his gift. Others include dahlia and gerbera, with the latter no choice of color on the net. However, he gave her one in ivory she preferred the most.

She Punished?

Standard

Ame-chan, Mei-Shun’s beloved molar extracted the other day, gave TWO BAGS of sugar in a week. No impunity must have been allowed to such a careless owner of that little, milky-white girl meaning both “candy” and “rain” by her name in Japanese. She had a slight fever, no appetite for a few days from the doleful process. And it followed — she burst into eating. Now half of the disastrous bags has gone.

Drive Nearby: 2

Shin kindly drove again to let Mei-Shun see wide view of lotus field. Since Ibaragi Prefecture is the biggest grower of 蓮根, renkon or lotus root, you are able to enjoy that gorgeous flower all around 霞ヶ浦 in summer. Oh, among white ones found a few pink petals. Some have already made seeds which look like shower heads. On the way to home, they dropped in following ancient grave 三昧塚古墳.

Shin and Mei-Shun drove to Narita Airport during their earlier obon holidays. 十余三, read to-yo-mi in the same city accommodates 東雲の丘 and a reasonable agricultural products shop. They always enjoy watching planes from various countries for a while, then move to above shop to buy fruits and vegetables. Thanks to the timing, lovely bouquets were available as well.

 

Happy Reunion

Standard

Mei-Shun met her high-school classmates Yuko-san and Kaori-san at 維新號 in Ginza. She was so happy to see them after around 2 years when the latter kindly came all the way from Tokyo to Tsuchiura, with her husband to see 汐汲. They looked satisfied with lunch of 7 courses, making the organizer feel relieved who lists this Chinese restaurant on the top.

Thanks, Kaori-san.
