新月=朔

Standard

Lunar June starts from today, that means the best to visit the nearest shrine. Mei-Shun dropped in there after driving Shin to the station, greeted Gods and drew omikuji lots. Hmm, 末吉=sue-kichi and 小吉=sho-kichi combination looks a bit sad, please let her do once more on behalf of Mikan-chan. Yes, 大吉 has come from you, thanks a million for protecting dad and mom.

Appear Again

Standard

Hi Tora-chan, did you help mom-in-law? She wakes up around 4 : 00 in the morning these days, opens shutters before watering garden flowers. That might be caused by amazing end of 梅雨 2022, declared yesterday in Kanto area. So Ms. Piano, could you join Mei-Shun to sing a rainy score composed by Master Chopin? She wishes it would lead to enough showers to replenish our reservoirs.

Real Reason?

Standard

Meow, mom canceled to take an examination of Spanish yesterday. It has become extraordinary hot from Friday, made her feel scared of getting heatstroke during an “excursion” to and from Tokyo. 梅雨前線, our seasonal rain front, went up toward north too early pressed by Pacific High. By the way, have you prepared well for it? Next chance comes in December, continue good study.

Cute Coincidence

Standard

Meow, mom and I ordered a flower arrangement for dad. And it was he who received it on delivery yesterday morning. Please kindly accept our gratitude, purr. We are satisfied that the shop well understood idea of us; pink roses, lovely atmosphere, round shape, etc. It might have come from a brochure featuring another shop in Tokyo, which dad always uses for mom.

Amicable Arles

Standard

Meow, mom has made it a rule to visit a pâtisserie in Tsukuba with me on this date every month. And a flower shop as well today, to order an arrangement for dad expecting Father’s Day on coming 19th. “The latest time was when he stayed in a hospital 15 years before”, she told me. “He always congratulated me on Mother’s Day. Why don’t we do the same to him together?” Great idea, purr.

Summer Striped

Standard

Meow, mom put Mr. Blue into 押入れ=oshi-ire, Japanese-style closet in the bedroom before vacuuming there. So we never have 梅雨寒 anymore, thanks and see you next winter. After cleaning, laundry and futon hanging, she walked to a nearby hair salon. Twice a week, and turn to horsey riding again? No problem, I also enjoyed dancing with Mr. Michelangelo between your hands holding a rein.

Joy of Park: 2

Standard

Meow, dad and mom brought me to a park. It was my first experience to get on Ms. Scarlet, held tightly in mom’s arms. She suggested that they visit an iris garden here, finding similar flowers along streets. They meant to leave me within that red car, yet I have become all free to go anywhere with them. Nice wind, fresh air after a rainfall, purr. Those violet ones are pretty, aren’t they?

Joy of Walk: 2

Standard

Mei-Shun drew 2 omikuji lots at the shrine. One was 凶=kyo, the worst luck while the other 吉=kichi, lucky. And oh, number 33 for the latter sounds like meow-meow to her native ears. So this is a message from you to dad and mom, Mikan-chan. They would keep it at home as the best charm. The former was tied to a twig at feet of 狛犬 N-chan. Your kind conveyance of it for purification by Gods would be highly appreciated.

Meow-Meow

Standard

… and meow, great to greet you kind followers again. I finished growing a pair of wings on my back last week, at a sobbing night of 小望月=ko-mochi-tsuki or 幾望=kibo. Sorry for mom’s absent from here, caused by deep hurts both to body and mind. From now on, it would be my and her pleasure to resume informing you on my breed, dance, piano and our happy life together.

Warm Wind

Standard

Purr, I love morning sunlight here. As seasons flow, it began to enter this glass door toward eastern verandah. Mom often opens it to take photos of a gingko tree grown in our backyard. Once cut at the height of her waist on the 1st floor, it has already reached to her eyes. “He covers you when seen from a car dealer across a private lane”, she says. I’m rather interested in a pigeon house visible thorough his green leaves.
