Odd Odor?

Standard

Steam humidifier is useful in current and the next dry seasons in our country. Shin and Mei-Shun have ever put one in their bedroom. The first was in pastel green, shape of a drop, diligently served for the longest 17 years. The second looked like a big chestnut, worked also as an aroma diffuser. However, he recently woke up catching strange smell from it. She therefore picked up following cloud to be the third.

Colorful light within

 

My Day

Standard

Meow, it is a bit cloudy from early in the morning. Mom bought a new futon with lovely coverings, among which she chose this one full of green dinosaurs for the first night. And it is my privilege of course to relax on it in gentle sunlight, purr. After taking a slight nap with me, she left at noon to dance with horseies. All right, I’ll keep a good girl until you come back.

Joy of En

Standard

Now 偕楽園 story all appears here together. They held a festival featuring bushclovers last month, still kept lanterns and red-cloth-covered benches. Thanks to it finished, Shin and Mei-Shun were alone able to enjoy wide view of that queen. Fragrant olives already bloomed as well, give sweet scent all around the garden. Maples would make them wait for a while to flush beautifully.

烈公 and guest samurais played “go” outdoors.

千波湖 Lake also accommodates a fountain.

Crape myrtle fruits

Expectant Ears

Standard

We have 仲秋の名月, the best moon of the year tonight, while it really in full tomorrow. It was raining in the morning, allowed Mei-Shun to use an umbrella during her light walking. She quite likes it, with colorful collection of this artistic gear (on the contrary, Shin takes them just as sticks). Nice scent of garden plants comes up from here and there, carrying their pleasure of bathing after a week.

Spirited Spot

Standard

Walking to the nearest shrine alone has taken 3 months and a week for Mei-Shun. How nice to see blue sky, feeling cool breeze along green rice paddy! Yes, it seems to have been harvested safely during rainy last serial holidays or Silver Week. Omikuji lots said 末吉=sue-kichi, the least luck for herself while 吉=kichi, lucky for Shin. Red spider lilies might be over, just white ones kindly welcomed her.

Fortunate Fountain

Standard

Shin and Mei-Shun visited 乙戸沼 Park yesterday morning, after longer than 3 months. This summer was really, really hot, while rainy season extensive. Both of them prevented above couple from walking around the pond, let alone going outdoors in daytime. Such an interval saw several changes — one of them was a pair of bridge rails. Right one was renewed, yet kept old on the left.

Sharpen U Up

Standard

Mei-Shun loves pencils. They serve her a lot for whom writing by hand is the best way to learn foreign languages. When she makes formal documents, rough drafts would be written on papers before typed. Most public examinations she has taken require them. On the other hand, various design gives her pleasant chances to choose while such simple structure a time to think about nothing.

Good Girl

Standard

Mom told me that we had 処暑=shosho, 2nd of autumnal 二十四節気 on Sunday. Meow, I feel we really did — even if daytime temperature exceeds 30 degrees Celsius, nighttime has seen under 25. Perhaps that heavy rainfall, suddenly started around noon, brought cooler air as a gift to us. Great to take a nap after surviving a gap between air-conditioned room and outdoors. Purr …

Family Lunch

Standard

Shin, mom-in-law and Mei-Shun ate out yesterday. 鶴舞屋 serves good baked eels and nice view of 牛久沼 Pond through wide windows. Weather was very unstable; sudden shower, abrupt stopping and clear sky came after one another. Still, they enjoyed above delicacy chatting in whispers. Maybe because it was the last of 4 serial holidays, tables were almost fully occupied by several other families including young children.

How Luxurious!

Standard

Mei-Shun visited a beauty saloon in Tokyo, the one she tried to compare with the other. Hmm, his technique is fine, makes her hair healthier. He might win her intention for curling next time. Quite satisfied, she dropped in a department store to purchase some cookie. It is a kind of excursion for her as well, including a short trip on train. As cool wind blew to smooth tall buildings, sunset dyed them bluer and bluer.
