Real Reason?

Standard

Meow, mom canceled to take an examination of Spanish yesterday. It has become extraordinary hot from Friday, made her feel scared of getting heatstroke during an “excursion” to and from Tokyo. 梅雨前線, our seasonal rain front, went up toward north too early pressed by Pacific High. By the way, have you prepared well for it? Next chance comes in December, continue good study.

Study Spanish

Standard

Mei-Shun resumed listening to above class on the radio. And Evaluación del Conocimiento de la Lengua Española waits application by her who is wondering which is better to take, 5th or 4th grade. Well, she actually took both for French years before. Similar language might require an equivalent challenge; easier one first, another a bit more difficult next.

Nice Numbers: 2

Standard

Thanks a million from Mei-Shun to you kind 464 followers. She found it on weekend, felt like you are saying yo-ro-shi-ku or “take care of us hereafter”. Although lacking 9 at last to read “ku” in our language, she would expect the next with 10 new guests rather than 10 times. Now we seem to enter a bit delayed rainy weeks in spring called 菜種梅雨=natane-tsuyu.

Snow Shoveling!

Standard

It continued toward dusk yesterday, forced Mei-Shun to cancel today’s reservation for horsey riding. She actually saw awful numbers on a scale on Wednesday, resumed exercise at home while cooking full of vegetables. お節料理=new-year feast beautifully arranged into tiered boxes, sake, rice cakes and ice cream are too tasty to refrain from. Now is the time of labor to allow Ms. Scarlet to move forward.

Gingko Gone

Standard

Here they are on the floor of eastern verandah. Yes, green might represent 2021 for Mei-Shun; Kaori-san chose green-haired pendant, kabuki dance lessons featured both 松の緑 and 松の寿, etc. On the other hand, green light is not yet on for her Spanish learning. She forgot to apply for a test twice, has failed to spend enough power to open the textbooks every day, making that novel coronavirus a reason.

Magical Melody?

Standard

Ms. Piano takes a rest on Master Mendelssohn’s “Floating Cloud” from “Songs without Words” while on “A Maiden’s Prayer” by Ms. Badarzewska. On the other hand, she sings “Golliwog’s Cakewalk” composed by Master Debussy again. It must be a lively score, yet this puppet manipulated by Mei-Shun stumbles too often to make clear steps. Or he/she might win a prize cake by his/her weird walking.

Only One

Standard

Mei-Shun walked to the nearest shrine after 6-week-long intermission. That might be why she drew 凶=kyo, the worst omikuji lot. She found amazing one coin of 100 yen in a purse, tried just once. Holy Gods, she would visit you more henceforth, please forgive her whose thighs itch a little from a moment before. Now is the time to do stretching under the big tree.

Happy Hanako

Standard

Master Bando plans to hold a stage performance next year. It would be a simple one with no wig or long kimono, called 浴衣ざらえ=yukata-sarae or ざらい= –sarai. Mei-Shun means to dance 男舞, male-style while Ms. S female 女舞. Such a small goal gives them a kind of mettle to learn more. And bigger 本ざらえ=hon-sarae/i is anticipated after next, with 白拍子花子 putting on 金烏帽子.

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.

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.
