Thanks to an autumnal clear sky, we could see 十三夜, the second most beautiful moon last night. Mei-Shun celebrated it by playing scores composed by Master Debussy and Beethoven featuring moonlight. She also would like to receive such magical power as much as possible, kept all shutters facing the south open while going outdoors. Oh, here comes sweetest silver coat. Welcome to share it with mom.
Shin gave Mei-Shun a surprise gift: they went on one-night trip to 遠刈田温泉. They have several nice hot springs listed, while it is always exciting to visit another place for the first time. 3-hour drive was quite comfortable on a weekday, brought them at 竹泉荘 around 16 o’clock. The husband took a nap, the wife enjoyed wide public bath before tasty dinner.
Mom-in-law finally left the hospital. During her stay for 2 weeks, Mei-Shun visited there every day bringing a newspaper and a few report on house matters. What has come into the latter’s mind was that every family member has an important role at home. Here she happily bought a horsey halter in coffee color with a leader by gratuity from the generous ex-inpatient.
… on lunar calendar is today, called 重陽の節句. It is one of 五節句 including 七草, 桃, 端午, 七夕 and often represented by chrysanthemum flowers. With 京鹿子娘道成寺 symbolizing cherry blossom, it seems interesting to dance it in yukata full of autumnal patterns dyed on. Oh, crickets are singing under a bit cloudy half moon. Thanks to bring equanimity for Mei-Shun.
Mei-Shun resumed to walk to the nearest shrine, drew two 吉=kichi, lucky omikuji lots consecutively. They mean quite similar as saying; those who see the 45th lot have everything in full shape, while those who do the 49th have everything satisfied like 仲秋の名月 with no clouds. Both advises her to stay humble, and it would go better with Gods’ protection.
It looks like, doesn’t it? Shin helped Mei-Shun replace older shoji curtain by this one on weekend. Since it faces a lane where elementary school students pass by every morning, it must be kept neat. Sunlight from the west is so strong that it contributes to prompt obsolescence of the paper item. Oh, abrupt shower, please do not beat fruits with Mickey hiding among. Are you kind followers able to find him?
Oh, so sorry to injure you, younger Ame-chan. Mei-Shun heard a gloomy snap in you as she did in your late elder sister at breakfast. She should have been more cautious — baguette would be too sticky for you still under construction. Panicked for a while, she made an appointment with Dr. N, her another home dentist from noon. She removed broken piece, covered it for the next treatment. Really a silver lining.
