Pink Twins

Mei-Shun feels so happy for finding three lady’s tresses in the garden. They share microbes with lawn, often grow on it not-so-much taken care of — like the wide garden of the museum she and Shin visited the other day. Clay images shaped like ancient warrior, pot and horsey, among which she most loves the last one of course, are arranged in front of the main building.

Hello, little frog. Mei-Shun saw you pop in grasses grown at the bottom of a gate she uses to stretch her legs before walking toward the nearest shrine. Now heading to there, rice paddy welcomed her in a refreshing shade. Caused by cool weather, it looks a bit delayed in growth — leaves only, no ears. Cucumber, okra, melon, many summer vegetables and fruits also do.

Mom, mom, I did well in the restroom. Why didn’t you see it soon to say good girl to me? Meow, you look tired. Where have you been so far? Appointments with a dentist and an  ophthalmologist consecutively, from 9 : 30. That’s the reason for your rushing out while washing cube was still humming. I see, then it’s my turn to say the same to you, on your legs. Purr … purrrr …

Thanks a lot, lovely animals. You always encourage Mei-Shun to practice piano. From behind, Baby-Chan (meaning “elephant” in Thai) and Papa-Chan. Do you miss your homeland? She hopes to visit there as well. Choco-chan and Ohagi-chan, your getting along with Kasane-chan twins is highly appreciated. White bears, elder one from Canada, do you feel kabuki dance steps on scores?

Welcome Home

Meow, I saw dad after a week. Mom was a bit panicked, maybe because she woke up around the time when his car arrived in front of the gate early this morning. After a flight of nearly a whole day, he looked quite tired. She therefore prepared bath and breakfast immediately, while the woman she calls mom-in-law cooked pork ginger. Now everything’s over, hold me on your knee. Purr … purrr …

Lovely Guests

Have you kind followers seen cactus flower? Mickey-face one in mom-in-law’s garden suddenly went into lemon-yellow bloom last month. Baby mantis, great to see you again. And your appearance on the floor of Shin and Mei-Shun is really appreciated, gecko darling. Hey Tora-chan, please do not try to assault the latter after shower. She is already in pajamas, would not like your paws walked outdoors.

Summer Solstice

Standard

Meow, we will have 夏至=geshi tomorrow, on my day of every month. However, it might be the worst timing: rainy season would not like to give us a chance to enjoy the longest daytime of the year, mom told me. I listen to her with perfect understanding, while know that it does not matter. Window-side bench in dad’s study is the best place these days. The warmer the better here, that’s all. Purr … Purrrr …
