After 4Y + 19Wks


Meow, mom told me that she received a phone call from Dr. A. I do not understand what “Yes” results mean, yet feel very happy because she looks so. You do not leave me alone at home through a night these days. Purr, good of you, who had been absent for nearly a whole month before. Not only your health but also mine and dad’s are the key to keep our stiff, upper lips.

Neither for me nor human dieters

Yesterday was our 4th Mountain Day, set on January 1st, 2016. Since it was Sunday, we have serial holidays including today. And that might make 9-day summer vacation added to obon period (13th-16th) with following weekend for some of business people. So please, Shin, take it as your privilege to enjoy enough rest at home. First shower, 2 weeks after the end of rainy season helps well.

Europe Admirer


Mei-Shun actually is, since she was a student. However, she has been only to the U.K., Ireland and France. On the other hand, Shin travels through the globe; perhaps has not covered Southern America and Antarctica. Now do you kind followers think the wife envies the husband? She never does. He makes business trips, not plays around. Her job at home is to keep on smiling.

Bloom Soon


Following below is lilies in the garden of the nearest shrine. They always show pretty white flowers, let Mei-Shun walk toward here to see. However, it was a bit too late to greet Gods: the door was already closed. And she bought a box of bath aroma with lily scent by chance at night. Really the last box on the shelf of a drug store, might call her who believes a saying 残り物には福がある, the last one means the best.

Can you believe we have 立秋=risshu, the 1st of autumnal 二十四節気 today?

Rare Shots


Hi, little lizard, great to see you. Geckos often visit Mei-Shun indoors, while you stay outdoors. The former tend to come friendly into her sight, yet the latter rush below grasses when she greets you in the garden. Do you feel cooler there? And oh, lady beetle, it was you who sounded weird between a shutter and a window. So sorry for leaving you, who looks exhausted. Would you like some watermelon?

She might prefer climbing to eating.

Care More


Mei-Shun went to see Dr. M, her home dentist for final check after three-time cleaning today. Their regular meeting has been biannual so far, yet changed into 4 month — dental score of the patient worsened. It is partly caused by her hesitation to use floss on one of Ame-chan twins. Since it has glass fiber core, the owner felt like keeping it untouched while another is removable, easy to clean.

She envies your new one, mademoiselle.


Home with U


So a month full of Shin’s business trip abroad started. Since most of us have obon summer vacation, it is not efficient to stay in our country, he says. His first destination is Germany, landed yesterday noon. A short trip to Italy is included, that forced him to carry two suitcases. After working there for a week, he once comes home to see Mei-Shun and Mikan-chan before turning to Asian countries.
