It is cooler, final day of torrid August. Mei-Shun likes it combined with Monday: she feels somehow benefited from such a day followed immediately by the next month. Just 1 : 6 =Aug. : Sept. in a week, yet the former looks like having 5 weeks. This sense might be caused by the fact that she was born in one of leap years, meaning 1 : 3 among 12 干支=eto, Chinese zodiac.
You are there, baby gecko. When did you cling to Mei-Shun’s sneakers? She drove Shin to the nearest station in the morning, came home and tried to take them off. Then a piece of dried grass started to move. It is dangerous to stay here, Tora-chan might be interested in you. Relaxed on a geranium leaf, you resemble Mikan-chan a little who loves to cool herself down on the floor these days.
Master Bando kindly recorded 恋の手習い=love lesson from 京鹿子娘道成寺 for Mei-Shun. Music source of the former is a cassette tape only, not CD nor memory stick. The latter therefore had to order a converter, hoping to give longevity to it. It reminds her of beloved Master Mei-Shu who used to make walking exercise on such a gadget called “walkman”.
Mei-Shun found, the Spanish test, Evaluación del Conocimiento de la Lengua Española expected to be held in October. The one in June was also canceled because of the novel coronavirus, let this student (a bit lazy) have extra time to prepare. Well, does it mean she can spend more time with Ms. Piano? Of course not. The radio program would go ahead, so would her own study on a textbook.
Mom told me that we had 処暑=shosho, 2nd of autumnal 二十四節気 on Sunday. Meow, I feel we really did — even if daytime temperature exceeds 30 degrees Celsius, nighttime has seen under 25. Perhaps that heavy rainfall, suddenly started around noon, brought cooler air as a gift to us. Great to take a nap after surviving a gap between air-conditioned room and outdoors. Purr …
Mei-Shun tried “Allegro among Impromptus, Opus 90” by Master Schubert after more than a whole month. Even if a poor performance, her fingers never hurt, that is fine. Haste makes waste. By the way, her eldest nephew sang “Erlkönig” by above great composer last week, to piano accompaniment by his mother. His grandma came out of that cool place to listen, and would flee back soon.
Meow, I need to relax on mom’s legs at least 15 minutes every day. She likes to watch weather forecasting TV on the sofa, so do I because it is the best chance. She calls me cute always, even when I simply drink water? Purr, thanks. “And you too, merely drinking tea”, dad told her. Purrr, thanks a lot on behalf of her, who knows well that he is the only one to give such a sweet comment.

Mei-Shun found a little pupa on one of grapefruit pots. There was a bigger butterfly baby on another until recently, yet it had eaten up all leaves and — gone. Clever boy/girl, please feel safe. She would take good care of your tentative bed beside Mademoiselle Vert. The latter grows again a lovely little leaf bud with 13 flowers kept pretty. And weird parts as well, looking like artifacts.
Lunar July starts from today. Since we have a new moon at night, Mei-Shun would be happy to play scores praising moonlight on Ms. Piano, composed by Masters Beethoven and Debussy. They say summer still stays on one hand, while she recognized several points of autumn on the other. More and more sunlight comes into rooms in the morning, sunset has got earlier day by day.
Yes, Dr. A gave Mei-Shun a phone call of “Yes” 10 days before. It is a big mistake of the latter to forget such an important report to you kind followers. At the same time, this ex-inpatient feels really happy to be relaxed enough to face this matter, thanks to you all. On the other hand, she immediately let Shin know in 江差, Hokkaido on a business trip while mother in 草津.
