Depends on Diet

Standard

Meow, mom looks delighted after checking numbers on a scale. She makes it a rule to weigh herself with an empty stomach and good perspiration from horsey riding. Are you kind followers interested in mine? It is not weight but a place to take a nap which I care. Mom has to hold me on her legs first, then I squeeze onto warmed-up sofa. Oh, Mr. Kura-maru, please do not occupy my bed.

Which First?

Standard

Mademoiselle Vert and Princess Cymby both have flower buds now, makes Mei-Shun feel really pleased who missed the latter last year. Drinking a lot of water, they seem to compete with each other. So time goes ahead toward winter as the big gingko tree in the garden of 日先神社 took off a beautiful golden coat, put it on the ground to make a gorgeous carpet.

Joy of Gingko

Standard

Meow, dad declared to resume weight control. He went on a business trip to Toyama the other day, brought home one of mom’s favorite sweets called 銀杏餅. Written in Chinese letters, they have taken it as icho-mochi so far. However, this wrapping paper taught them that it is ginnan-mochi. Either will be all right, just enjoy giving all left to mom.

Purr …

Joy of the Sea: 2

Standard

Meow, mom told me Mr. Ichiro, a steller sea lion kept at Aquamarine Fukushima looks like me when sleepy. Do you kind followers agree with her? More rare species is Mr. Kura-maru, only one ribbon seal in the world who stays in such an artificial environment. A fluffy image of him joined me and Mr. Junto on the sofa. I’m generous enough to allow boys taking a nap with me, purr.

Joy of the Sea: 1

Standard

Shin and Mei-Shun visited Aquamarine Fukushima on weekend. Their first stopover at this aquarium was actually a decade before, when they sought to find good sushi or sashimi restaurant. An amazing shoal of sardine was kept in a huge tank, while lovely seahorses in a tiny one. And oh, lovely cyclopteridae, great to see you again. You are called “konpeito“, prefer to stay alone.

Welcome, fluffy ones.

Dance, Dance,

Standard

And dance, mom, only 3 weeks are left until you perform 恋の手習い on the stage. You went out for a lesson at Master Bando’s place in the morning, came back early in the afternoon. Futon mats are sunbathing in southern verandah where Princess Cymby, her younger sister and Mademoiselle Vert stayed from spring. They came indoors yesterday, expecting flowers in 2 pots in coming next year.

I am the best blossom of course, purr …

Great Green

Standard

Mademoiselle Vert seems to have a flower bud again. Latest ones kept amazing longevity of over 3 months, let Mei-Shun feel grand admiration for them all through this torrid summer. According to pieces of advice, phalaenopsis roots are not easy to separate. So you are happy to stay there, looking full of the pot you lived first. Please just do not work too hard.

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 Horsey

Standard

It was the best among these rainy days for Mei-Shun to see them again. How have you been, Princess Maria, Ms. Sagittarius, Ms. Last One and Mr. Tea Time? Thanks to you, Mei-Shun enjoyed practice on Ms. Piano twice today: before and after dancing with you. She also found wild cherry trees blooming neatly with new leaves, perhaps in order to augment nutrition as much as possible.

Joy of Cat

Standard

It’s me who is on the top of mom’s list, purr. She recently purchased a food processor to make my stew smoother in mouth. Thanks, I can eat it more. By the way, meow, who is this red tabby? He lives in a soba noodle restaurant mom and dad visited the other day, sniffed her scarf carefully to recognize me. Well, such an attitude is quite favorable — not too friendly but polite.
