Curled Up

Standard

Meow, mom admired white friends the other day, while silver was heard among them. I know her favorite is my coat, no need to hiss with jealousy. Now, today is so gray that I can sleep all day long. Here is my favorite bed, her legs covered with 半纏 or kimono-shaped jacket. She is good at smoothing me by hand, makes a fluffy doughnut whose topping sometimes glistens in green.

Joy at Kyoto: 4

So this is her 3rd exhibition, purr. Mom and dad made a one-night trip to see Kaori-san or こがしわかおり, Ms. Kogashiwa, Kaori. She is one of mom’s best friends from her high school days. Another was held in 神保町, Tokyo where mom also visited and brought a lovely girl to home on Monday. She told me other two would join us soon to celebrate Christmas together. Purr … purrr …

Joy at Kyoto: 2

As Mikan-chan meowed on Friday, Shin and Mei-Shun stayed in the ancient capital of our country on weekend. One of their many purposes was to dine at 畑かく where ぼたん鍋, wild pork simmered in an earthen pot is served during its hunting season from this month to March. They dropped in 月餅屋 to purchase two baskets filled with cute delicacies; one for themselves, while another for Kaori-san.

Meow, mom and dad left me home alone on my day of a month. They told me in an excuse that today is their day, because of the numbers: 11 can be read “í:-i” while 22 “fú:-fu” in Japanese, meaning a good couple. All right, you are allowed to go ahead for the ancient capital city to see Kaori-san’s exhibition. I’ll keep a good girl until tomorrow with this warm guy.

Meow, I miss him so much, who would soon appear in the living room again. Mom’s preparation for winter will continue until weekend when dad comes back from 上海. However, it was warm enough today, let me enjoy taking a nap on the sofa with no covering. Will 木枯らし1号, the first northern gale between the middle of October and the end of this month, really blow tonight?

Mom & Me

Meow, she walked to the nearest shrine again this morning, not with dad yet alone. I kept a good girl as usual — it is clear to me whether she comes home soon or takes a time like yesterday. Welcome back, you look satisfied. What’s that folded paper? An omikuji lot? You drew it for dad who saw 末吉, the least lucky the other day until you win 吉, lucky. Good job, purr.

Joy in Miyagi: 4

Shin and Mei-Shun expected to stroll around 竹泉荘 in early morning before heading for Mikan-chan at home. Although a bear prevented them from it last year, they would have a chance this time. However, not only calicobacks but that fluffy animal welcomed the couple again. A small garden is available at Room 301, while it looks safer to keep following tiny door closed.
