Monkey Slips?

Standard

It seems 百日紅=saru-suberi, crape myrtles like weather of this summer: much rainfall and short heat waves. Mei-Shun enjoys one planted in backyard of the northern neighbor every morning, while finds some in full blossom of bright pink or white on the way to her horsey-riding club. She wishes their beauty to be kept for 100 days as mentioned in name.

And the same to you.

Farewell & Hello

Standard

Mademoiselle Vert, you decided to say it at last. Mei-Shun found one of lovely green flowers closed and a little browned the other day. It happens to one after another, only 10 are still kept fresh among 28 twins this morning. It breaks her heart, yet should be accepted as what every life on earth has to face. Please take her admiration for your beauty and longevity, quite difficult for human beings.

My Day

Standard

Meow, it comes once a month. Today I would let you know my favorite places to relax. First is the northeastern corner of dad’s study. Second is indoor wooden terrace in the bedroom. Third and rare is here, behind a television where previous one was set when a terrible earthquake attacked us years before. It had a Braun tube, allowed me to relax on in winter.

Joy of Curls

Mei-Shun feels it quite gorgeous to let her hair down in the middle of summer. It is normally rolled and bound with choux-choux as soon as she wakes up in the morning. She went to a nearby hair saloon in such a style, got regular treatment before driving for a shopping. Since both places are well air-conditioned, long hair works like a jacket to cover her neck and shoulders.

Rare Shots

Standard

Hi, little lizard, great to see you. Geckos often visit Mei-Shun indoors, while you stay outdoors. The former tend to come friendly into her sight, yet the latter rush below grasses when she greets you in the garden. Do you feel cooler there? And oh, lady beetle, it was you who sounded weird between a shutter and a window. So sorry for leaving you, who looks exhausted. Would you like some watermelon?

She might prefer climbing to eating.

Home with U

Standard

So a month full of Shin’s business trip abroad started. Since most of us have obon summer vacation, it is not efficient to stay in our country, he says. His first destination is Germany, landed yesterday noon. A short trip to Italy is included, that forced him to carry two suitcases. After working there for a week, he once comes home to see Mei-Shun and Mikan-chan before turning to Asian countries.

 

 

Catch It

Standard

Meow, it has finally become comfortable for me. Dad starts an air conditioner of his study early in the morning to cool himself down after taking a bath, while mom perspires in the living room until 10 o’clock. My best place therefore changes from 広縁, wooden indoor veranda of their Japanese-style bedroom to the study. She opens wider window, closes a screen attached to let outdoor air come in. Purr …
