Remarkable Resemblance

Standard

The 6th mademoiselle of mom’s orchid bloomed, purr. She told me that we look like each other. They are smaller and greener than elder sisters, just after opening into full — lovely equilateral triangles. On the other hand, my face is a fluffy inverted triangle in silver-blue shade when I relax on mom’s legs with ears turning downward. Do you kind followers agree with her?

Sleepy Princess

Standard

Meow, mom seems to refrain from going outdoors today. More precisely, she only drove dad to the nearest station before dropping in the shrine she normally walks to. Welcome back, how was your omikuji lot? Both of two you drew are 吉=lucky, that’s great. White lilies have grown up toward your thighs, sounds nice. What, Tora-chan was on your mom-in-law’s bed? I cannot say purr for it.

It is my privilege.

My Day

Standard

It is today again, purr. Mom went out in the morning, returned in a minute. She told me rain started to fall, prevented her from walking to the nearest shrine. Meow, it means you should stay home all day with me. You have a lot to do when a new week begins, especially on PC closed yesterday, don’t you? Oh, it was 夏至=geshi, the 4th of summer 二十四節気 with the longest daytime, yet almost in vain.

My claws on bear …

Mom cut them.

Sleepy …

ZZZ …

Really Red

Standard

They are so bright that Mei-Shun feels as if beaten in eyes when she opens the front door. Mom-in-law chose it to be planted here — she visited Switzerland 22 years ago, quite liked that country where many houses grow geraniums at windows. It also works as bug repellent, not only cute but useful. By the way, what is the brightest is your eyes, Mikan-chan.

Dance Classically

Standard

Thank you so much, Ms. Last One. You played a role of Mei-Shun’s partner for gallop yesterday, very well done. Do you know that piano score aired in the field? It is “A Maiden’s Prayer” composed by Ms. Badarzewska. Actually, she seems to be featured often these days. A professional pianist chose it on TV, let above amateur know that she does not need to be in a hurry. Slowly, precisely and amorously.

Joy of White

Standard

Mei-Shun loves flowers from the end of this month to all through next; hydrangea, orange, cape jasmine, iris, etc. However, she forgot your name, darling of early rainy season in the nearest shrine garden. May she call you Lady Veil? And oh, it was you, one of Siamese twins. She thought a white-hair lady is working here, hurried to a handkerchief in a pocket to cover her mouth.

My Day

Standard

It is today, expecting lunar leap April tomorrow. Since weather forecasters say it would be so-so, why don’t you walk to the nearest shrine to make a new wish, mom? I know you are pleased because the club where my friend horseies stay would open from next week. After making class reservation on the net, you concentrate on kabuki dance practice from morning. I’ll join you, purr …

Too Late?

Standard

Or it might be on time, Mei-Shun means. She is so much excited to see diligent Mademoiselle Vert grow promptly. One little bud has already become a long branch, divided into three parts. It is difficult to imagine how following two shorter, thinner “stalks” would work, yet there seems flower buds on the top. Anyway, she would be taken good care with enough water and food.

Say Hello

Standard

Please, on a doorbell and phone at the gate of my home, meow. When mom and dad moved to here 20 years ago, many neighbors came directly toward the front door to knock. They gradually used to our rule; inform us on their arrival using above gadget, wait our response and walk on a brick lane to see one of us open the door. However, it works for upstairs only, not for downstairs these days.

Newly attached this morning

Japanese Culture@holiday

Standard

Nationwide state of emergency in our country would have expired today, the last of Golden Week holidays. However, it was announced to be extended toward the end of May while partly lifted in areas except for 13 prefectures including Ibaraki. White beauties are seen in many places, perhaps to encourage Shin and Mei-Shun to continue stay-at-home life with smile.
