Shin and Mei-Shun visited 乙戸沼 Park after months. It was her proposal, hoping to see winter waterfowls before their departure. Oh, here you are, including wild ducks, swans and larus ridibundus or black-headed gulls. They saw fulica atra as well, increasing in number rapidly these days (according to mom). So chic a white beak among all-black body. Great to see you.
You too, quite young — just 2-year-old one? Shin ordered 2 gas cookers for Mei-Shun and his mother respectively, adding you for the wife only. Have you been envying busier environment of your colleague? No, it was from the first day when you refused to work. Or it might not be your error but of the mechanic who was in charge of your installment. Anyway, latest model would replace you soon.
Oh, what happened to you? You and Ms. Microwave is the oldest couple at home of Shin and Mei-Shun. The husband first recognized something weird in you, while the wife followed this morning finding that inner air of you seems to stay just a little bit cooler than room temperature. Well, with lunar new year started, would you like to retire and let them have new one?
Mei-Shun met her mother yesterday. One of the latter’s close friends’ husband collapsed recently, brought to a hospital by an ambulance. He has been lying unconscious since then, makes mom feel afraid of coming across similar situation. However, only Gods know what would happen to our lives. So please, “cool down” blended herb tea, let the daughter calm her boiled brain before going to bed.
Nothing has changed at 大志満 in 高輪, Tokyo. Shin and Mei-Shun visited there after several months, should have said a happy new year. They were guided into 椿=Camellia Room. Of course you are here; blue birdy, we missed you hoping you did us as well. Green vegetable, sashimi, 治部椀, grilled salmon, tempura and rice. Oh, how cute these origami cranes are to hold dessert spoons!
You finally bloomed in full. With you 13 sisters, the only scape of this winter looks so heavy. However, Mei-Shun knows that for such one full of flowers, pot is the best place to keep fresh. Please, therefore, give us your patience a bit more. Since last night saw the second snow which covered all outdoors, you can enjoy sight of curious cat and watered friends for a while.
