Toy Box

Standard

It looks like, doesn’t it? Shin helped Mei-Shun replace older shoji curtain by this one on weekend. Since it faces a lane where elementary school students pass by every morning, it must be kept neat. Sunlight from the west is so strong that it contributes to prompt obsolescence of the paper item. Oh, abrupt shower, please do not beat fruits with Mickey hiding among. Are you kind followers able to find him?

Hi, Hanako

Standard

Shin and Mei-Shun met her at 鹿乃子 Japanese sweets shop in Ginza on weekend. It was so sunny and hot that they took there かき氷=shaved ice with syrup and みつ豆=algae jelly with sweet simmered peas after strolling from 維新號. Satisfied and cooled down, Shin went downstairs for payment followed by his wife who recognized something calling her from right side.

After 3Y + 27Wks

Standard

Thank you so much, Dr. A. She gave Mei-Shun a “Yes” phone call just when Shin tried to park Ms. Scarlet at the hospital his wife visited 2 weeks before, while his mother stays from Wednesday. Her room is on the 2nd floor where Dr. A is current head. That is why the ex-inpatient came across her along the corridor, and this 3-adult family was allowed to enjoy Tsuchiura Fireworks from the roof floor on Saturday.

Already Harvested

Standard

Yes, they have already done it. Mei-Shun walked to the nearest shrine after months of interval on the last day of September. Along the lane, she found clear-cut rice paddy grown up into the second green. “Red rice” began to show lovely seeds, while a few spider lilies have kindly waited for her greeting. Gods softly chided her laziness with 末吉=the least lucky omikuji lot.

 

Coffee, Please

Standard

Last time when Mei-Shun visited a hair saloon by 5-minute walk from home, a cup and saucer was served. Soooo cute as usual, makes her happy to see. Some of her friends do not like dots pattern, while is quite fond of by herself. Such red and small round shapes remind of holly fruits to represent merry Christmas, don’t they? At least this tree in our backyard would agree on the idea.

Sweet Moon

Mei-Shun saw Dr. M, her home dentist for teeth cleaning only today. Replacement for Ame-chan would be arranged after 4th, September: its twin sister might be extracted as well. As a way to avoid such a gloomy idea, she dropped in a shop of 和菓子=wagashi, Japanese sweets to pick up following delicacies of autumn. Missing our graceful satellite for a few nights, shall we find her among them?

Too Soon

Standard

It is a bit, darling. 萩=hagi, bush clover in our garden might make a mistake by cool weather from last Friday. Since summer has come back with mercury over 30 degrees Celsius today, Mei-Shun is worried about you. Please do not try to go into full bloom, just stay on her kimono. Autumn flowers are to be featured on traditional Japanese clothes and sweets according to lunar calendar.
