Mei-Shun is cordially appreciated to Shin, mother, mother-in-law and elder sister who celebrated her birthday. Just a word of congratulation would warm her heart, while his gift is always so gorgeous. Continued from last year, roses of spring sunset or a cappella, her late father called as his younger daughter, arrived in a silver pot. And oh, she won a turtle of happiness in this galette des rois.
Thanks a million, Shin, a hard worker even on weekends. Following are his souvenirs including 縮緬山椒=chirimen sansho, dried anchovy and Japanese pepper and 千枚漬=sen-mai-zuke, 聖護院 horseradish pickles by Mei-Shun’s request. And the best is a bag of cute, round rice cakes. They are amazingly soft and tasty after a whole day, no need to bake to put into お雑煮=o-zoni, our new-year soup.
Oh, beautiful full moon. Mei-Shun found it so bright in the sky when she drove back from her horsey riding club. She knew it is the last one for 2019, while missed the lady of the same name today (see you on Wednesday, honey). It is so difficult to take good photos that she immediately gave it up to pick up some by experts. She prefers to see such an incredible phenomenon by her eyes as much as possible.
Hello darling, a baby leaf of Mademoiselle Vert. So sorry for keeping you thirsty during Shin and Mei-Shun’s trip. It has been rainy, yet too cold to let you stay on the balcony. And oh, regarding outdoors, the wife found one of green necklace pots have several buds. Would you show those white, little flowers soon? Since weather forecasts say it would be freezing tonight, she is happy to let you in.
It was great for visiting the nearest shrine with you, Shin. Both he and Mei-Shun drew “lucky” omikuji lots on weekend, felt hopeful going into the last three months of the year. Fluffy goldfish, you therefore may embody her luck when picked up from the floor of a dressing room, changing into an angler with an antenna on the head. If you prefer a dining table to a bag, please go ahead.
Mei-Shun has got a good idea. Beautiful precious stones should appear on cushions, instead of closed in vacant sweets boxes. And same for earrings Shin brought home for her; many of them are stored in lovely cases, others in music boxes. Now ladies and gentlemen, please relax on chatting. Mr. Emerald and Ms. Desert Star, you two have a special seat.
Professor S, please kindly take Mei-Shun’s deepest gratitude. It was a kind invitation from the former lady to visit her place for the latter today. Two pairs of “handmade” earrings motivated their appointment. They were so loosely attached onto metal parts that they have high risk to fall — her fingers are all thumbs. On the contrary, how quick and precise hands of this Madame Prof. are, to repair them!
