Stay Sweet

Standard

Now who would be Mei-Shun’s partner to dance? Candidate horseies include Mr. Treasure, Mr. Applause and Mr. Sound Harvey. When she took the 4th-grade certificate, Ms. I and Mr. Vanilla Arc helped her. This time is not to gain any, yet she would like to win enough technique to enjoy dance with them. Oh, Princess Maria, you are dissimilar to above guys. Please just keep your pretty peace.

Day to Dance

Standard

It has become rare for Mei-Shun, just sometimes with Princess Maria. Actually, she stopped reserving canter lessons from last month, caused by a kind of slump. Perhaps knowing reasons, she asked a chief instructor Mr. S to give her effective private lessons instead of ones in a group. It would start after 11th, December when she finish a Spanish examination.

Rainy Rhythm

Standard

Mei-Shun continued to practice “Salut d’Amour” during Shin’s business stay in China, has learned how to say hello clearly to him on Ms. Piano. You need tuning soon, darling, who is sweet enough to sing moonlight scores often these days together with her best friend. Shall we look for a new technician this time, expecting one shares gender at least in mind?

Allegro to Adagio

Standard

Some combination of scores help Mei-Shun to play Ms. Piano more smoothly. For example, Waltz Op. 64-1 or “Valse du Petit Chien” composed by Master Chopin leads to easier “Le Cygne” by M. Saint-Saëns. “Pavane pour une Infante Défunte” by M. Ravel also works for “Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring” by M. Bach. Since tempo is all different between the former, fingering might matter.

Try Twice

Standard

Oh? A letter to Mei-Shun arrived, from Spanish examination secretariat. She gave up taking it in June when rainy season said to have already gone. It was too torrid to go outdoors, or seemed even dangerous to get on a train bound for Tokyo. What would have come if any accident occur, stopped air conditioning? Ah, that is why above paper has blanks in score and result.

Japanese Culture@wkday

Standard

We have 七夕=tanabata, Star Festival and 小暑=shousho, the 5th of summer 二十四節気 today. Mei-Shun practiced canter with Mr. Great Fighter in fresh air. Well, she never calls it dance, since her technique has been seriously deteriorated. Not so much in 松の緑, perhaps thanks to lessons so far. She wishes the same soon work in above, yet it is always accompanied by a lovely partner.

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.
