Only One

Standard

Mei-Shun walked to the nearest shrine after 6-week-long intermission. That might be why she drew 凶=kyo, the worst omikuji lot. She found amazing one coin of 100 yen in a purse, tried just once. Holy Gods, she would visit you more henceforth, please forgive her whose thighs itch a little from a moment before. Now is the time to do stretching under the big tree.

First Feast

Standard

So this is the one Mikan-chan took as her treat, yet really was Shin and Mei-Shun’s. The new microwave oven served well to grill a big piece of one-night dried 糸撚鯛=ito-yori-tai, sea bream. The wife is not good at using advanced machines for which guidebook reading is indispensable, yet made an effort. By the way, it was felt like smelling a bit fishy when she cooked toast this morning.

Lunch@松乃家

Standard

Ms. Piano, you sound much better since tuned by Mr. O. Mei-Shun feels happy to sing with you, while a bit weird when she uses a pedal in higher keys. Since Shin is available working at home to replace light bulbs above you, she would try again tonight. Oh, a beautiful half moon has appeared in the sky. 松の寿 would also be practiced with dark windows as a wide mirror.

Bow-Wow, Bow-Wow

Standard

Meow, they say today is Dog Gift Day, reading month and date numbers as its 4 barks in our language. They should be cared with present boxes like Christmas Day? Hmm. Mine is February 22nd, set in the same 1987 as above by chance. By the way, this fish looks like coming directly from the sea of Nagasaki. Is it a treat for me, dad? Or did mom apply that idea of animal welfare?

Too Soon?

Standard

Hi, Princess Maria. Mei-Shun failed to attach a new pair of stirrups to Mr. Sirius today, just came to meet and dance with you. Oh? Where is your name in silver rhinestones on forehead band? They have gone, maybe when washed with an antiseptic. All right, new one would be a Christmas gift for you. A fluffy accessory would also be attached, please kindly give her a moment.

Superb Souvenir

Standard

Shin brought home delicacies again, from Miyazaki Prefecture on business. Above bottle of shochu, distilled sake is famous called Hyakunen-no-Kodoku, meaning century alone. Actually, it is the second time Mei-Shun received it as a gift. The first giver was late Dr. T, her “2nd” boss with Dr. K as the 1st at a research institute in Tsukuba. Just a bit more than one tenth years have passed since then.

Oven Opposite

Standard

Shin generously purchased a new microwave for Mei-Shun. They chose together above on internet, replaced older one. It was the eldest and last among their kitchen appliances from marriage, worked for longer than amazing 27 years. And oh, they have been all wrong where to put it and a rice cooker: the former is to be on the upper shelf, while the latter on the lower.

Good Girl

Standard

So lunar October starts from today. Mei-Shun meant to walk to the nearest shrine after just a whole month, greet Gods and draw omikuji lots. However, she had to give priority to room cleaning which went behind the trip to Kyoto last week: she makes Fridays full of housework to enjoy fresh weekends. Her fluffy daughter, who was forced to stay home alone, likes this pattern as well.

Her Hiss?

Standard

… I have no reason to make it, still please kindly let me express gratitude to you distinguished 444 followers on behalf of mom. She looks happy from this morning, saying that one of laundry balls lost for around 2 weeks was found on the way to a main road. She has taken it to be closed into futon covering, fell on our garden when hung outdoors. Greetings to Mr. Green, purr.

Home on Holiday

Standard

It is really by chance for Ms. Piano to see Mr. O again today, removing Kyoto 蕎麦猪口 couple from her lid. When Mei-Shun received a phone call from him, only the latest Culture Day was convenient. However, Shin is careless enough these days to fill his schedule book on our holidays — he went out early in the morning as usual. Only difference from weekdays is that he drove by himself.
