Moon or Rain

Standard

Happy birthday, elder sister. Mei-Shun met her yesterday, for the first time in amazing 3 years hit by that still “novel” coronavirus. She looked fine, replied that 佃煮=tsukuda-ni, fish and shrimp from 霞ヶ浦 Lake simmered in sake, soy sauce and sugar until half-dried, would be preferred as a gift to peanut crackers. All right, it would be delivered ASAP. Now Ms. Piano, which of above shall we sing tonight?

Mei-Shun went out early this morning with Shin to visit home of her parents. Mom invited her younger daughter to stay for a while with elder one as well. A welfare personnel came to check her health, decide if she is eligible to receive subsidiary money when put a handrail along porch stairs. Well anyway, it is great to meet your family in person, isn’t it? Thanks a million, daddy, for leading them to gather here.

Meow, mom put Mr. Blue into 押入れ=oshi-ire, Japanese-style closet in the bedroom before vacuuming there. So we never have 梅雨寒 anymore, thanks and see you next winter. After cleaning, laundry and futon hanging, she walked to a nearby hair salon. Twice a week, and turn to horsey riding again? No problem, I also enjoyed dancing with Mr. Michelangelo between your hands holding a rein.

Next at Night

Standard

Mei-Shun’s beloved father departed today 13 years before. He was a bit plump at current age of his younger daughter, who saw nice numbers on a scale yesterday after dancing with Mss. Sagittarius and Last One. Caused by 鹿の子餅=kanoko-mochi, soft and airy rice cake from Toyama Prefecture she enjoyed with Shin late last night, no appetite welcomed her this morning.

Perhaps thanks to yesterday’s harsh rainfall, it is cloudy yet dry enough for Mei-Shun to hang futon mats and do laundry this morning. However, while she drove toward her horsey riding club in the afternoon, windshield of Ms. Scarlet started to catch fine drops. Well, they seem too slight to stay on the ground. Since Ms. Sagittarius has missed her from January, it is better to go ahead.

Cute Caps

梅雨=tsuyu or rainy season started, a weather forecaster told Mei-Shun last night. Just one day before normal, on Shin’s birthday this year. It would be rather difficult for her to fix schedule outdoors, precisely regarding horsey riding. And to choose clothes as well — if tomorrow see temperature under 20 degrees Celsius, 3 serial days would give us April feeling so rare that experienced 20 years before.

Tour Together

Standard

Happy birthday, Shin, who was born on the best day to start Japanese arts including kabuki dance, 琴=koto, 三味線=shamisen, 尺八=shakuhachi or vertical bamboo flute, etc. Since Mondays are his busiest, Mei-Shun cooked a lot yesterday. She meant to go out with him this morning for a hair salon nearby Tokyo station, yet barred by such a windy rainfall. Now would you come with mom, Angel Mikan-chan?

Ms. Piano, may Mei-Shun sing with you just slightly today? One of oven mitts has been worn thin too much to avoid heat, burned her right ring finger this morning. And a thunderstorm came in the afternoon, prevented her from going out for dancing with Princess Maria. She wishes it not to blow away that cute 山法師 flowers found in 乙戸沼 Park last weekend.

Joy of Park: 2

Standard

Meow, dad and mom brought me to a park. It was my first experience to get on Ms. Scarlet, held tightly in mom’s arms. She suggested that they visit an iris garden here, finding similar flowers along streets. They meant to leave me within that red car, yet I have become all free to go anywhere with them. Nice wind, fresh air after a rainfall, purr. Those violet ones are pretty, aren’t they?

Wow, it looks like another Mei-Shun is standing in a box. She feels really happy receiving made-to-measure boots at her horsey riding club today. This pair is gift from generous Shin when her mother celebrated his promotion months before. “Since it is thanks to your support,” he said who enormously satisfied his mother-in-law by such a warm comment.
