No Sweets

Standard

Flowers are better as souvenir for you, mom-in-law. Mei-Shun visited her mother’s home today, confirmed that the latter is fine. They chatted on lunch and ohagi, rice ball coated with sweetened red-bean paste, of her handmade as dessert. She knows her younger daughter never rejects this delicacy for equinox, even if her weight is not well controlled. Well, actually it is.

And healthy you, cotton candy.

Stopped Nocturne

Standard

Well, what shall she do? Mei-Shun might be too much attracted by a lovely horsey these days, other hobbies including Spanish learning are a bit put aside. Actually, she would like to dance with Mr. Tea Time: gallop looks available soon on him. Almost a whole year has passed since that young, friendly boy came to the club. He is also clever enough to adapt himself to a new environment little by little.

CU@Yokohama: 2

Standard

It might be the first time for Shin and Mei-Shun to pray at this 関帝廟. You need 5 long incense sticks to put into 5 burners served for each God, after bowing 3 times respectively. Then you are allowed to step forward to 5 statues in the main building. Now, it has passed 17 : 00 o’clock. Shall we stroll around a bit more before dinner at a 四川 dishes restaurant, the husband’s recommendation?

Another Choice

Standard

Mei-Shun found it pleasant to walk out in the evening. Yes, May is one of her favorite months — daytime getting longer, the sun seems to stay in the sky even after set around 19 : 00. He gently shine over young rice paddy, strolling dogs and a well-wisher heading to the nearest shrine. She dropped in at a supermarket, used her shopping bag as a weight for arms exercise.

Private Garden

Standard

The Ns, they live just next to a bank Mei-Shun often visits. It is really nice to see these roses bloom beautifully, yet why is the parking space so crowded today? Ah, caused by this date, she noticed. On 五十日 read as go-toh-bi, meaning dates with the first place 5 or 0, banks and post offices tend to be busy. Especially in the middle of a month, pensioners rush toward there to draw cash.

Once More

Standard

… of effective private lesson by Ms. I Mei-Shun received today. She lately began to understand the reason why many members of our club, including those who have even 3rd grade certificate of horsey-riding technique, return to gallop in narrow circles. Since only one-3rd number of lessons are served for those above 4th graders like herself, even a wide-square field are always full of Mr. and Ms. Sagittarius.

Simple Sounds

Standard

Here the score of 2019 for Ms. Piano follows below. Thanks a lot, Shin, for ordering it from Hong Kong. Mei-Shun was happy enough to head immediately toward her favorite musical partner for a trial play. Hmm, some notes are written like reflected by a mirror. Does it mean a kind of countermelody? … not so bad a guess, it seems. Coming from a cantata, each melody must be correct and clear.
