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.

Matsu Midori

Standard

Mei-Shun started to take lessons in 松の緑=”Green of Pine” by Master Bando. Simple, yet therefore difficult to follow her properly. 名取 candidates of her party would dance this score in front of 家元=yie-moto, a kind of CEO. Some of them were tense so much that turned to the left instead of right, above lady told three Tuesday-comers. That is the way an ex-白拍子花子 here often does.

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.

Function Facilitator

Standard

Mei-Shun sometimes enjoys feeling of empty stomach. Her appetite seems to come from eyes, rather than ears to catch under-breast growling. On the other hand, the latter is her barometer of health. It is therefore better to refrain from eating when no sound is made around the waist. Various hot drink including kudzu-root tea, milk, juice and hard candy are recommended to help her digestive system.

Lower Legs!

Standard

Mei-Shun finally saw a DVD of her performance last year as 白拍子花子: it took her 4 months to be courageous enough. Oh-oh, she makes too much bending and extending in knees to look stable — please stop jumping around the stage. More shocking is that she almost stands still showing her back and obi sash to audience, even if she meant to turn head to the left with shoulder going down toward the floor.

Oops, One

Standard

Oh, it still stays around Mei-Shun’s waist. Since she felt lighter there thanks to original methods, all the same number as last week on a scale was unanticipated. It might be partly because of a sudden rainfall while she was on the back of Princess Maria: water weighs more than solid. Or simply, weight loss is not always proportional to body shape-up.

Poor Princess

Standard

Oh, what happened to Nausicaä? Or to Mei-Shun who asked Shin to order a score book composed by Mr. H. Joe. It was to play “Windy Valley” featuring above heroine on Ms. Piano, yet these clumsy fingers touch a lot of wrong keys today. They spare no time to practice “Princess of Mononoke” instead for latest months, making it sound so-so if played slowly.

And to U, Mademoiselle Vert.

 

Warm White

Standard

Today’s music aired at the horsey riding club reminded Mei-Shun of her repertoire again — Impromptus, Opus 90, Allegro composed by Master Schubert. She practiced that bright tune too much after dancing with Princess Maria, has got a bit hurt in fingers. The former is currently better at reining the latter lady, might receive message from the  great artist.
