Most people of our country saw white Tuesday followed by freezing, stormy Wednesday. Mei-Shun stayed safe at home with Mikan-chan, winning Shin who managed to take an off today to enjoy picking up those ruby fruits with his wife. They drove toward the foot of Mt. Tsukuba, found their usual place closed. Bankruptcy? No-no, just after kindergarten children.
Here Mei-Shun exchanged vases of Christmas/wedding anniversary and birthday gifts from Shin. The former had fresh roses, carnations and lisianthuses already removed to dry, needs no water any more. Mr. Green is therefore suitable to accommodate it, let the latter relax in a glass tall and large enough. And the owner is so vigorous that brings this vivid, aromatic one to the bedroom every night.
We have 大寒=dai-kan today, the 6th of winter 二十四節気 and the bona fide last of these 24 seasonal points. It means the coldest weeks among an year, while Mei-Shun enjoys warm sunlight from southern windows. An arrangement gentle Professor M gave her consists of many spring flowers including lovely cherry branches. Oh, they are already in 70% blossom.
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.

Mei-Shun visited her horsey riding club today for the last time this year. She hopes to choose gentle partners to improve her technique, trying several ones including Mr. Danone Caesar. He is a son of that Deep Impact, resembles the great father in charming eyes and tinier body. And slender Madoka-chan, mom got slimmer than before. Could you help her more from next year?
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.
Here is an image of a plant Shin sent to Mei-Shun this morning, asking what the name of it whose bright color caught his eyes along a mountain path. She immediately replied that it might be a lacquer tree or Toxicodendron trichocarpum. He was cautious enough not to touch it: this breed often causes serious rash. Every rose has its thorn, please prefer safe Christmas trees.
It has become a bit difficult for Mei-Shun to see a moon at home through the widest window facing the south. Instead, a glass door toward the east let her find its silhouette when she prepares to take a bath around 21 : 00. And it was early in this morning that Shin and his wife were welcomed by a clear 居待月, a moon to wait sitting above the nearest station.
Shin went on a business trip to Germany through weekend, returned to Mei-Shun yesterday evening. Time difference and a long flight forced the wife to miss his arrival message at Frankfurt, while let him see a great Christmas gift in the sky. Thanks to a route via the North Pole they took, and a fluffy angel who asked her mom to get into his suitcase together.
We have 立冬=ritto, the 1st of winter 二十四節気 today. Well, it might be real this year — Mei-Shun sees these days a thermometer of Ms. Scarlet point below 10 degrees Celsius in early morning and late at night. However, still a beginning of November turns it up to around 20 degrees in daytime. She therefore has to bring a jacket into horsey riding field, choose if put it on or off.
