Welcome to our home. Your predecessor worked for 12 years, recently had some trouble with cacophony. Shin likes you so much, yet quite surprised at the price, picked you up on the net for more reasonable purchase. Now you are here, it is Mei-Shun who is in charge of operation. You work as a laundry box, while as a dryer before and after washing respectively? That sounds terrific.
At least Mei-Shun feels so. Rainfall makes her stay indoors, find something special to do in such an environment. For example, even if she cannot see the moon at night, great composers like Debussy and Beethoven would help much. Their works to express moonlight soothe not only her but also every mind, while sensitive technique is required to play them precisely.
… to you, Shin. Your mother often tells Mei-Shun about the night you were born. “It was raining,” she says. “Every expecting mother at the hospital felt like delivering a baby one after another.” Mystery of life, it really sounds. And it is also said to be the best day to start practice of kabuki or noh, including Japanese dance of course. It might be why his wife is attracted by this form of art.
Here are cute, round members of our garden. Mom-in-law received this big paper pot of green necklace from Mei-Shun, keeps as it is next to her cactus corner. Baby buds of opuntia greet them with shiny silver thorns still soft. Looking forward to rainy season soon, blue hydrangea also holds a lot of little balls. May we expect many flowers after your interval of last year?
Please find gifts from Mei-Shun to Maria and Madoka-chan respectively following below. The former is so noble, isn’t she? White coat allows her to look good in any color, yet the best is the simplest from one of her buffs’ viewpoint. On the other hand, the latter is in black-brown which accommodates all shade as well. Mei-Shun therefore referred to opinion from Ms. I, “mom” of Madoka-chan.
We have 小満=shoman, the 2nd of summer 二十四節気 today. It means every plant has grown up to reach standard size. Still too young to call them so, rice paddy spread along a lane to the nearest shrine seems already doubled in height. Are you kind followers capable of finding a wild duck couple, float like green boats on water? A white egret and a gray heron also greeted Mei-Shun.
Here is a photo of a cloud Mei-Shun has never seen before. She found it while walking back from the nearest shrine to home the other day. Shin is much better to take photos of mammoth creatures, kind enough to send one following below to his wife. Were you making an enormous carp stream above us? With no reply, he disappeared in a minute blown by gust.
