Three weeks have passed since Mei-Shun saw her best weight in September. After riding horsey friends in three lessons, perspired much and starved, she had expected to get on a scale. Well, she did in half; one lesson in daytime boiled us, two at night washed and dried us by cold shower and wind. It was found that she is quite good at controlling herself, not thanks to a serious headache.
We would be able to see them all in gold soon at 乙戸沼 Park. Still 40%-60% in green and yellow right now, gingko lines serve walkers and joggers a clean road in early mornings. Cherry trees put on colorful coats; green, yellow, orange and red. It seems the last one means a kind of graduation, because many scarlet leaves have already fallen on the ground to make friends with Mei-Shun’s shoes.
Yes, you had better do, Mei-Shun told to herself. Two weekends of October have passed, yet she had no contact from Master Mei-Shu. Wondering what is going on, it must be taken as a chance to feel independent. Her purpose to dance is to perform on a stage, hoping her family and friends would enjoy it. She should improve her technique by practice while watching good performances as much as possible.
We enjoy one of “Happy Mondays” today, set by a system started in 2000. It allows 3-day holidays including Saturday, Sunday and Monday. However, what would happen to most libraries and museums closed on Mondays? Mei-Shun wondered, searched and knew that they will be open on holidays including above, closed on such Tuesdays. Hmm, it depends on your profession what day is the happiest.
Meow-meow. Tora-chan, we hear you, yet where are you? Mom-in-law makes geranium bush and cactus arrangement beside the front door, where it sounds like coming from. Oh, there you are. You used to take shelter from raindrops under our olive branches which suddenly became full of green worms this summer. Thank you for staying so far as a guard of Fuku-chan’s grave.
Madoka-chan, Vanilla Arc, Mei-Shun missed you so much. Lessons reserved last week had to be canceled for rain on Thursday, while for a sore throat on Saturday. Actually, she already felt slight one last month when tropical temperature began to leave at night. She should have taken good rest before succumbing to it: 3 days in bed is much better than 3 weeks in patience.
Oh, she comes up from tree tops. Mei-Shun feels so happy to have such a clear sky, which slight shower washed crossing sunshine yesterday. We can enjoy 十五夜 or 仲秋の名月=chushu-no-meigetsu, the most beautiful moon in the middle of autumn tonight. Thanks to Shin who brought tasty 月餅 from Hong Kong on weekend, his wife passed by sweet rice dumplings this year.
