Thrilling Tradition

Standard

Mei-Shun is a sumo wrestling lover. Or precisely, she might take it as a kind of artistic performance on a stage called 土俵=do-hyo ring. Gorgeous costumes 行司=gyoji referees put on, 弓取式=yumi-tori-shiki, bow-taking ritual held by a handsome rikishi warrior attract her eyes. Yes, she would pull sleepy kimonos and obi sashes out of drawers from next bouts in March.

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.

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.

Fly to Fukuoka

Standard

Oh, what a busy day for Shin and Mei-Shun it was. The husband returned home around midnight, left this morning before 7 : 00 to the nearest station driven by the wife. She started a laundry machine, read newspaper, hung futon mats, vacuumed all over rooms including stairs and even under a sofa. After a cup of tea, she went out for a bank, postal office and shopping. Now he turns to a business trip.

Creative Condition

Standard

Real winter has come, or at least Mei-Shun and her family feel so these several days. Ms. Scarlet is frozen on all windows when she drives Shin to the nearest station, let the wife rush to the bathtub for warm water. However, 霜柱=frost needle plants appear in her mother’s garden thanks to such low temperature. Fallen petals of camellia sasanqua give a chic carpet.

Mild Marine

Standard

Here comes a new kettle to serve Mei-Shun. Among various coloring for this product, she took above the best. Shin also chose it by chance, when his wife offered images on Internet. Named “seabed”, it shows the maximum level of water: one-finger below spout. Well, is it similar to Ms. Iron? If so, it might be this careless user who broke that diligent predecessor.

Green to Gold

Standard

The last solar month of 2022 starts. Mei-Shun meant to visit the nearest shrine on foot, yet canceled it with so cold a wind from the north and sporadic rainfall. How is that big gingko tree, whose golden yellow coat she admires? In his place did she pick up fan-shaped leaves fell on verandah floor. Yes, the same breed in our backyard finally decided to change clothes.

Found Fluffy

Standard

Meow, mom walked to a hair salon this morning. In a few seconds to reach there, she saw a breed of mine enjoy sunlight beside a window. Her beautician knows it named Momo-chan, the same to our garden princess. Yes, 99% 三毛猫=calico cats are girls. It might be why above tricolor tea cup was served, while she was waiting for medicine to  permeate her hair.

Met Memory

Standard

Shin and Mei-Shun drove to Shinjuku on weekend to visit nice 2 places; one is 玄海, a restaurant serving 水炊き=simmered chicken pot, while the other Swarovski, one of favorite accessory shops for the couple. Beloved father of the wife liked above dish familiar to his hometown. And she decided to keep Dora-chan, newly named on Ms. Piano, as he is right now.

Joy of Pottery: 1

Standard

Shin and Mei-Shun visited 益子 for the first time on weekend. According to a beautician for the wife, it accommodates almost all shops gathering around the main railway station. In nearby famous 笠間 City, they are scattered a bit too much to find the best place. That is why the husband immediately agreed with her to choose the former town in Tochigi Prefecture.
