Full of Flower

Standard

萩=hagi, Japanese bush clover in our garden began to bloom. Yes, it represents current season getting cooler day bay day. While Mei-Shun stays outdoors with horseies, wind gives gentler touch on her cheeks after 15 : 00 even under sunlight. And we have 重陽の節句, chrysanthemum festival today before 仲秋の名月, the best full moon tomorrow. Now is night tea time for her who saw nice numbers on a scale again.

Droll Dripping

Standard

We have 白露=hakuro, the 3rd of autumnal 二十四節気 today. 白 means white and 露 drop, while the latter fell down on mom-in-law’s table this morning upset her so much. When she made a phone call to Mei-Shun, it was 5 : 00 that her daughter-in-law jumped up from a futon mat wondering something occurred to Shin. None of his numbers shown! A sigh of relief.

Another Aroma

Standard

Mei-Shun enjoyed another bottle of German beer on Saturday. Their menu explains Master Goethe liked this dark, sweet one. It matches assorted cheese, fruits and vegetables rather than meat plates (just her impression of course(^^). By the way Shin, who nicely drove her to above restaurant, flew to China for business taking at least 2 weeks after 10-day quarantine.

Light Flight

Standard

Meow, do you kind 479 followers believe UFO? Mom seems to do and dad as well. She takes it pretty normal, since we are too tiny in the universe to reject such an idea. However, they have never seen any in the sky — is this therefore the first time for him? When she received above image from Thailand, I thought he finally made it. “Ah, it is just a room lamp”, was his answer.

Champagne or Beer

Standard

Hi, Princess Maria, great to see you again. Please listen, Mei-Shun dine out with Shin on weekend at their favorite German restaurant. The husband never drink alcohol, while the wife was ready to ask owner’s recommendation shown above. Hmm, light and aromatic, said similar to that sparkling French wine. And she deserved it, known after coming home for a scale.

Artistic Autumn

Standard

菊廼舎=Kikunoya kindly sent a seasonal brochure to Mei-Shun the other day. 冨貴寄=fuki-yose, their main and the best product reminds her of stages she performed so far — and shop name is similar to the party she belonged to. Master Mei-Shu, your last 名取 refrains from lessons these days. However, she never forget respect and thankfulness to you while love to dance.

Poor Player?

Standard

Meow, sweet melodies are always aired at mom’s horsey riding club. It often features piano scores including “Salut d’Amour” composed by Master E. Elgar, which she once gave up and put under other pieces. However, the same tune sounds when they make her hold on the phone. It might be a message to encourage you. “All right”, she said and opened the lid of Ms. Piano. Purr, it goes better than before, doesn’t it?

Still Summer

Standard

Last Saturday was 八朔=hassaku, 1st of lunar August. Mei-Shun visited the nearest shrine to greet Gods and make a wish drawing omikuji lots. Her favorite cicadas 蜩=higurashi and Tuk-tuk 法師=hoshi were singing lively there, while almost none of the former around her place. And it may be too cool today for them to play their instruments on the back. Oh, slight rain started to fall.

Export and Import

Standard

Shin went on a business trip to Thailand last week. Yummy souvenirs include Bertholletia or Brazil nuts whose big, rare trees naturally grow in Amazon Rainforest only. People in that smiling country therefore might love this nutritive breed, trade it by cashew and coconuts. It was also the first experience for Mei-Shun to have popular sweet tamarind, dried and packed in the smallest bag.
