Winter Flower

Standard

Mei-Shun met with Shin at one of their favorite restaurants in Takanawa, Tokyo. They make it a rule to date on lunch when the former goes to a nearby hair salon for a cut or curling. It was their great pleasure to greet again this birdy always welcomes them in 椿=tsubaki, camellia room. Dishes were all superb as usual, including 治部煮=jibu-ni, simmered vegetables, 麩=fu, steamed wheat gluten and meat.

Last Lesson

Standard

With you this year, Vanilla-san and Madoka-chan. Thanks a million for your being friendly to Mei-Shun. Here are brown sugar for your good sleep. See you next year. Well, she joined gallop lessons in May. Nearly the same period as her original diet, she is still in a half-baked position. However, necessary practice should be enjoyed: she will feel no pressure to go ahead in this matter.

Dark Riding

Standard

Although a crescent shines beautifully in the sky, it is a bit hard to stay on horsey’s back at night in winter. Coughs prevent Mei-Shun from joining such class from 17 o’clock — so sorry, Ms. I. Two lessons from 14 : 15 and 15 : 15 selected Mr. M and Mr. X respectively. Boys, please accept Mei-Shun’s apology for replacing the former by gentle Amazónes while the latter by lovely Maria in another class.

 

Excellent Job

Standard

It is for Mei-Shun, or her favorite play along with petal catching in spring. Since Mr. Gingko in our backyard started to change clothes, lovely yellow fragments fall on the floor of eastern balcony every day. When they are dry, it would be very easy to choose clean ones to keep. On the other hand, she has to wait for a while before discarding brown ones to collect wet beauties on read newspaper.

Slow Starter

Standard

Our backyard gingko finally began to turn yellow. He is the last to do so, that means autumn is leaving soon: temperature in early mornings has already sunk under 3 degrees Celsius. Mr. Aladdin has asked Mei-Shun to replenish his stomach for a few times. Now, blown by gale after gale of winter, she receives another occupation to pick up fallen leaves in balcony.

Japanese Culture@holiday

Standard

Milk after bathing! Have you ever tried it? Mei-Shun heard that many people in her home country love to drink a glass of cold milk (or beer for adults) after taking a hot bath. It looks quite good for health, since we lose much water by perspiration while warming ourselves in bathtubs. Oh, please do not forget to place your free hand on the waist during this superb experience.

Postponed Project

Standard

Mei-Shun meant to gain a certificate in horseback riding within this month. Now, why did she failed in it? One of the reasons seems imbalance between her mind and muscle. Greed (to save money, for example) might lead to mental haste, deprive her of concentration. She should calm herself down, return to her primary purpose to go to the club; pleasure in good communication with beautiful horses.
