Spanish First

Standard

Yes, Mei-Shun would, certainly. However, she asked Shin to order a new score composed by Master F. Chopin. Nocturne No. 20 “Lento con gran espressione” was heard as BGM for a popular TV drama she liked before. She made it a rule to study Spanish before practicing this lyrical tune. It is shocking anyway that half-an-year interval decayed her memory accumulated by the same period.

Care More

Standard

Mei-Shun went to see Dr. M, her home dentist for final check after three-time cleaning today. Their regular meeting has been biannual so far, yet changed into 4 month — dental score of the patient worsened. It is partly caused by her hesitation to use floss on one of Ame-chan twins. Since it has glass fiber core, the owner felt like keeping it untouched while another is removable, easy to clean.

She envies your new one, mademoiselle.

 

So-So

Standard

Mei-Shun’s latest omikuji lot drawn at the nearest shrine is 吉=kichi, lucky while the one Shin brought home for her yesterday from Yamaguchi Prefecture 中吉=chu-kichi, luckier. Getting better, the former says she would recover from diseases if she stay watchful; the latter she should not take care too much. As for examinations, it would take time; she should improve her laziness and set the goal ASAP.

Ripe Soon

Standard

Mei-Shun plays better that score composed by Master Bach these days. It is thanks to the radio program she used to listen to: she has stopped learning Spanish for three-fourth year by an intention. When she aims to acquire fluency on piano, not only her fingers but also ears need time and concentration to absorb melody. That might be because she has a kind of resistance in brain to accept something new.

Thanks, mom-in-law.

Effective Lesson

Standard

When Mei-Shun forgets how to play a score on Ms. Piano, it looks like a chance to her. Since fingering so far has been reset, she can try from scratch to find out better way. “Pavane …” is a good example, left behind Masters Bach and Debussy. And it seems that memory to play that musical instrument is saved not only in brain, directly connected with eyes but also in 10 fingers with necessary muscles.

 

Friendly Food

Standard

Following below is a bag of ottotto, salty crisp shaped like fish which Mei-Shun likes from childhood. Thanks to packaging, calories per serving is so clear that she feels a kind of safe. Such products are for little kids, including other cookies and rice crackers, yet work very well for this adult dieter. Mom-in-law is also much helped by baby dishes, easily available compared with those for elderly persons.

Very rare to see them.

Vegetable flavor joined!

Superior Piano

Standard

Never taking Spanish inferior, yet Mei-Shun chose its test in October. That is because she would like to brush up her technique in playing several scores. Master J. S. Bach is on the top of the list which accommodates “Life of Merry-go-round”, “Le Cygne” and “Pavane pour une Infante Défunte”. She loves the last one, practiced earnestly years before yet played around others for a while.

Thanks Shin, working hard from early morning.
