Double Dolce

Standard

Oh, how delightful it is! Or they are Mei-Shun means. Shin ordered a rolled cake on business, yet received two at home by his wife on weekend. It is a kind of dream for her to eat this nostalgic sweets until feeling full up. Hmm, one is coated by sliced fruits under jelly while the other whipped cream. They gave almost no effect on the scale she got on tonight after dancing with Princess Maria and Ms. Bunny Girl.

Happy Horsey

Standard

Since summer heat and humidity of our country is too tough for that lovely tall animal, they take longer lunch time toward 15 : 00. And Mei-Shun, who resumed her club visit at the very end of last month, chooses evening lesson. Oh, Mr. Tea Time is still to let, impossible to designate as her partner until next year. The scale she got on after dancing with Mr. Puma-Tech informed her so-so weight control.

Shin and Mei-Shun celebrated 夏越の祓 tonight on a cup of coffee and 水無月=minazuki as usual. 若鮎=waka-ayu and カエルまんじゅう=kaeru-manju, shaped like sweetfish and smiling flog face respectively made friends with above one-day delicacy, while only the husband took the former. The wife was too much distracted by a ticket arrived minutes before to get shots against that novel coronavirus.

Merry May

Standard

Meow, lunar month titled above starts from today. Mom walked to the nearest shrine in the morning, gave an earnest prayer to protect us all. She seems to recover from sore caused by an accident last week, visited a horsey riding club again yesterday. Coming home to get on a scale, she looked pleased so much. Purr, good of you. Please share smile with me serving the 3rd and last jelly stick.

Grateful Granma

Mei-Shun wishes. She found a summer hemp kimono descended from beloved grandmother of her mother’s side the other day, stored in a box put on bedroom 広縁=hiro-en, indoor verandah. A bit spots, yet has no problem for kabuki dance lessons. Actually, it was too tight to move smoothly years before when she had several more sugar bags around waist.

Rhythm Returned

Standard

Golden Week, Year-end and New-year holidays are the most dangerous for Mei-Shun. They make her feel relaxed too much to abstain from foods full of oil and sugar. And alcohol easily follows. The former of this year accommodated all of them, brought horrible 2 bags around her waist which took as long as 2 weeks to leave. Really easy to go, hard to come back.

Cooking Control

Standard

Thanks a million, Ms. Last One. Mei-Shun was really happy for dancing with you in a 45-minute private lesson today. Princess Maria, sorry for pulling you out of a stall again. Your caregivers were a bit confused, thought you had no appointment any more. Now seeing tolerable numbers on a scale at home, she feels satisfied with her appetite management — 1.7 bags of sugar have gone.

Joy of Park: 2

Standard

Only one of fountains installed in 乙戸沼 was working under clear sky. What happened to others? It seems to Mei-Shun that water has enough oxygen currently. When all three upside-down parasols are seen, it means that residents here are kept lively enough to feed waterfowls. After nice walking, she found half of sugar bags, gained during Golden Week holidays perhaps, gone with the wind.

Turn, Turn

Standard

So the time has come for Shin to resume weight control toward an annual health check. Mei-Shun is always happy to join him, cooking a lot of vegetables, tofu and konjak. The last one is also called “devil’s tongue” or “elephant foot, perhaps by its color and black grains within, while a great food with no calorie yet full of dietary fiber. Incredible 2 bags of sugar might be seen on a scale the other day, yet the wife never believes it.

Lift Lips

Standard

It is the last date of April, on Friday this year. Mei-Shun feels it nice because her weekday schedule ends with a month. Golden Week holidays started from yesterday, yet Tokyo, Osaka, Kyoto and Hyogo Prefectures are under the 3rd Covid-19 state of emergency. Faraway from relaxation in mind, she would just be careful not to gain any sugar bag around waist.
