This is Girl’s Day, festival with dolls in kimono and peach flowers. Mei-Shun saw so-so numbers on a scale yesterday, pleased to celebrate her younger days with sweets including 水戸の梅 and のし梅, souvenir from Shin. Well, ume is a bit different from above 桃=momo while in the same family. 桜=sakura is as well, while she does not know which covers 芝桜, moss phlox.
Hi, Mr. Danone Caesar, great to see you again. Mei-Shun designated you, Mr. Applause, Mr. Treasure and Ms. Madoka this month. Do you wonder why? Because she would like to choose friendly partners toward canter dance, brushing up her technique. Please keep a good boy as today, darling. Look, she won the best lottery so far to reserve favorite lessons in March.
Meow, we are on the last day of solar January. Mom seems to have decided what to do first in 2023; to improve horsey-riding technique, to keep herself healthy enough to attend all lessons she reserves. It might have been easy when she was half of her age, yet never right now. If she could complete it in coming three month, second goal would be considered with Ms. Piano. Purr … purrr …

Yes, it does for Mei-Shun until lunar Christmas Day next year. On the other hand, she recognizes that most people in our country immediately turn to new-year preparation after that day on solar calendar. Moreover, many of them take December 24th main — including mom-in-law who replaces garden bells and ribbons by pine branches on 25th.
Day to DanceStandard
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.
We have 立冬=ritto, the 1st of winter 二十四節気 today. Well, it might be real this year — Mei-Shun sees these days a thermometer of Ms. Scarlet point below 10 degrees Celsius in early morning and late at night. However, still a beginning of November turns it up to around 20 degrees in daytime. She therefore has to bring a jacket into horsey riding field, choose if put it on or off.
Mei-Shun went to a hair salon nearby Tokyo Station after a few days more than 2 whole months. With a slight rain, it was not the best for treatment yet cool enough to set bangs again. 牛久 Pond was halcyon as usual, a chimney of a famous noodle maker was working well. However, it was not easy to catch that 634-meter high broadcast tower whose top fully covered by grey clouds.
Shin, Mei-Shun, Mikan-chan and Ms. Scarlet visited 涸沼=Hinuma Pond on weekend for the first time. Much smaller compared to 霞ヶ浦=Kasumigaura Lake, while looks cleaner. It may be thanks to rivers flowing into the former, and the sea whose water climbs up to it at high tide. 大杉 Shrine and a swan sit still to observe people playing on the shore.
Severe to SoftStandard
It rained heavily this morning, made Mei-Shun quite worried about horsey-riding lessons she reserved in the evening. Sunlight seems to have chosen milder way, sometimes pats us on the back in the afternoon. Now could you dance, Mr. Hallelujah Sunday and Ms. Nuts, with her who puts on a vest works as an airbag instead of kimono?
… or trot Mei-Shun means. She tried “endurance” class for the first time with sweet Princess Maria as her partner. It might be hot and humid, yet cool enough for us who have been scorched by extraordinary sunlight from the end of June. Much more on the green where tall trees fully cover. Such an exciting experience gave her another joy: she saw good numbers on a scale.
