Covert Cut?

Standard

A few years seem to pass after Mei-Shun bought a bucket to put horsey gears within. It has served her by normal jobs; to water outdoor units of air conditioners in summer, to wash cleaning rags for example. Now Mr. Green, could you work as a flower vase for a lovely bouquet Shin gave her recently? He kindly said yes, while making several drops on a plastic sheet.

花鳥風月

Standard

Ms. Piano, what new shall you and Mei-Shun do this year? Since it has been raining for recent several days, moonlight scores were picked up a lot. Rain and snow falls are featured by Masters Chopin and Debussy, chosen for fine weather. Her repertoire therefore covers 照る日も降る日も=both clear and wet days. How about adding windy one? Oh, she already learned “Nausicaä“.

Meow, it was the date of “Arles” for me and mom yesterday. On the other hand, dad ordered above pie as her birthday cake from that pâtisserie on 13th. She won the fève in the first piece chosen, so he safely left others to celebrate lunar Christmas today. We stayed good girls on weekend, while he went on a two-full-day business trip to Hong Kong. Unique chocolates would also arrive at night.

Purr, great to see you start to bloom, Princess Cymby. Or you are I who came back to celebrate mom’s birthday tomorrow. Dad also returned from two-night business trip to Nagoya, bringing home one of her favorite sweets 外郎. She brought me to a horsey riding club this afternoon, enjoyed lessons with Mr. Happy Crescent and Princess Maria on her last day of current age.

Dear Depart

Standard

Mei-Shun went out on Ms. Scarlet this morning to see Dr. M, her home dentist for the first time this year. Since there would be no pain, she was relaxed when sat on an automatic chair. Her bed of Ame-chan looks all right, yet still has a kind of hole. Oh, beautiful 臥待月, she is ready to go into dry futon having a good bath. See you in 更待月 tomorrow night.

Violet Velvet

Standard

Here is Princess Cymby with two bouquets. Mei-Shun feels really happy to see them grow day by day, while elder one already has a bud change into yellow from green. You take nearly a whole month to bloom, honey, who remind her of a decade before — sister Kasumi, another 名取 student of beloved Master Mei-Shu, kindly gave you to her after performing 島の千歳.

It is Coming of Age Day today. Since 18-year-old young people are already called adults, 20-year might be taken normal these days. However, alcohol drinking and smoking would be allowed after the latter. Many local governments therefore hold gatherings on the 2nd Monday of January, may let them follow parties. Cheers from Mei-Shun with a glass of fresh red wine, souvenir of Nagano by Shin.

Day for Dance?

Standard

We have 小寒=shokan, the 5th of winter 二十四節気 today. It means the beginning of 寒=the coldest season of the year, while almost no wind, sunny enough for Mei-Shun to walk to a nearby hair salon without gloves before noon. Expecting 小望月=komochi-tsuki or 幾望=kibo at night, she cleaned up rooms in the morning to put on the 1st kimono in 2023.

Remarkable Red

Standard

Happy Birthday, mom-in-law. Mei-Shun is always pleased to go out for shopping of flowers and a cake for you. Stormy wind pushed her into a shop for the former where only a few, tiny arrangements were displayed. She asked a clerk if superior one was available. She replied it was, yet 2023 first auction would be held tomorrow. “We have therefore a bit elder ones here…” No problem at all.
