Meow, Respect-for-the-Aged Day of 2022 is the same to my birthday. Does it mean me of 19 years old on 19th by chance? At least mom never takes it so. She calls me the sweetest honey ever in the last year of teens, purr. And dad, great to find you in 上海 from yesterday, cleared 10-day quarantine at 青島. We promise to keep “good girls” until welcome you back home.

Cool Creation

Standard

Purr, this is the day for me and mom to visit Arles, our favorite pâtisserie in Tsukuba. A bit cloudy and dry, it is the best for her to clean and wash. Please do not do too much, you have reservations at the horsey riding club tomorrow. I’m always happy to accompany you, asking my tall friends to stay gentle. And it is your duty to look healthy in a web camera for dad.

Golden Gear

Standard

Here is Mei-Shun’s new vacuum cleaner. Named “Ms. Harp” from her color and shape, she would be the best partner for above owner to clean carpets and wooden floor. Oh, how light you are in main body while normal tube and head. Please say hello to Ms. Piano. You two are among Tora-chan’s four kittens who live with a couple in Tsukuba — oops, Piano was a boy.

Light Flight

Standard

Meow, do you kind 479 followers believe UFO? Mom seems to do and dad as well. She takes it pretty normal, since we are too tiny in the universe to reject such an idea. However, they have never seen any in the sky — is this therefore the first time for him? When she received above image from Thailand, I thought he finally made it. “Ah, it is just a room lamp”, was his answer.

Poor Player?

Standard

Meow, sweet melodies are always aired at mom’s horsey riding club. It often features piano scores including “Salut d’Amour” composed by Master E. Elgar, which she once gave up and put under other pieces. However, the same tune sounds when they make her hold on the phone. It might be a message to encourage you. “All right”, she said and opened the lid of Ms. Piano. Purr, it goes better than before, doesn’t it?

Cozy Connoisseur

Standard

Meow, mom’s mom is very happy to find a 桔梗=kikyo or balloon flower bloomed in her garden of 草津 cottage. Compared to previous one, it seems to have layered petal. So grandma is wondering if such shape is caused by a mutation, or natural crossbreeding. She would come back at the beginning of next month, rush toward her main computer to search, ask questions and report on the result.

Pêche Party

Standard

Meow, dad and mom are still in obon summer vacation from 13th to 16th, yet spend it as a normal weekend followed by weekdays. He went out this morning for business, while she washes, cleans and studies as usual. Only an irregular event was on Saturday to visit their favorite pâtisserie with me by Ms. Scarlet. It is quite regular for the shop to be closed today.

Meet Meow

Standard

Shin used to go on business trips abroad at least once a month before that novel coronavirus began roaring among us. When Mei-Shun found on a souvenir brochure lip-balm sticks full of kitty patterns and asked him to purchase some, he immediately handed her a tiny box. However, the wife could not use them so far — not only on package design but by a stick itself appears a lovely face.

Vital Violet

Standard

Oh, severe sunlight has returned toward Kanto area. Morning humidity augments our difficulty to endure such a heat wave. Mei-Shun feels relieved that her two mothers stay in cooler environment respectively; one is in higher place surrounded by a lot of oxygen emitters, while the other on lower floor of the same house taking care of a garden. Tora-chan seems to share comfortable life with the latter.

Good Girl

Standard

Mei-Shun noticed エノコログサ, setaria viridis grown beside lady’s tresses whose sofa is put on the eastern verandah floor. When she closed a shutter of Shin’s study, one of ears tried to enter. She once refused, yet gave up soon and let it in. Only a night made it turn from bright green to pale. The husband said that it is because Mikan-chan played with it by punch, bite, etc.
