Lovely Lunch

Standard

Purr, mom stays with me at home all day long. She went out yesterday morning, came back around tea time. Her oden simmered vegetables and fish balls are in a pot, continued to be boiled in dashi soup while added other ingredients. It became her meal after getting on a scale. What is the reason for your smile? Meow, a small bag would be taken from a 桜葛湯 box as dessert.

Amicable Apple

Standard

Thank you so much, Mr. Calvados. He is the eldest at the horsey riding club Mei-Shun lately visits on Thursdays. There seems to be several ways to change his 27 years old into human age, from 78 to 89. Yet his coat, eyes and muscle look much younger in cold 大寒 air, perhaps never minding such a little matter. She purchased that bottle of alcohol respectful to him.

Brilliant Births

Standard

It was found yesterday that Master Bando was born on March 22nd, Aries. Mei-Shun asked when it is, expecting sincere celebration for this gentle lady. Ms. S’s is June 26th, Cancer who joined amazing 3 born in the same month, yet Gemini family members of above 名取. It might be why her 2 instructors were in good relation, since beloved Master Mei-Shu was Sagittarius.

Continued Celebration

Standard

Above is the 3rd gift from Shin to Mei-Shun, from which he won a cock-shape fève. 4th is a cute pair of crystal cats; bigger one is mom, smaller another is Mikan-chan, according to dad. And a warm message via e-mail from mother arrived in the morning, while a pretty basket full of spring flowers at night from Professor M. Oh, the 1st full moon of 2022 appeared in the sky.

Pink Piggy

Standard

She finished her long-time job to store 500-yen coins for Mei-Shun. One of main banks of the latter recently announced that they would start to take commission regarding above metals. Even our public broadcaster featured this news yesterday, saying many financial institutions have already given up such business. So please feel free for a while, darling.

Cute Crystal

Standard

Mei-Shun treated gifts today, which she enjoyed in boxes yesterday. 1st is a gorgeous bouquet from Shin, coordinated with another arranged into a pot arrived on Christmas Eve. The former has pink lilies, salmon-pink roses with violet attendants while the latter in snow-white, the same and greenly white. 2nd is red-bean rice from mom-in-law cooked into balls.

Acknowledgement

Standard

Please kindly let Mei-Shun say thanks a million to Shin, Mikan-chan, mom, mom-in-law,  friends and distinguished 456 followers for celebrating her birthday. It is the greatest joy to take pleasure in everything with you, spend precious time day by day smiling. She cordially wishes you beautiful and prosperous future. All the same to good people she has not yet met.

Salon Shock

Standard

So it is the last day for mom to enjoy her current years old. She left home around 9 : 00, returned before 11 : 00. It is within morning, much earlier than yesterday. However, why you forced me to be alone so often? You made a promise to keep at least every 2 days to stay with me from morning till night, didn’t you? This tiny pool on the floor is therefore a penalty for your breaking it.

2022 干支

Standard

Lesson by Master Bando resumed from today. Oh, she kept new 舞扇=fan used in kabuki dance for Mei-Shun and Ms. S; the former ordered one with abstract design of 寅=tora, the 3rd of 12 Chinese zodiac symbols drawn on, while the latter concrete profile of a handsome tiger. Both are beautiful enough to let them practice 松の寿 and 寿 more respectively.

Japanese Culture@holiday

Standard

Thanks a lot, young people to reach 20 years old within March 2023. You give us adults a holiday on Monday, making 3-day little vacation after just 2-day new year. No rain, no snow is convenient for gorgeous kimonos you put on, that makes Mei-Shun feel happy as well. She stays at home with Mikan-chan like a normal weekday — Shin works as usual. Such a situation is suitable to vacuum rooms up, while to cook beans.
