Joy of Walk: 1

Standard

Mei-Shun visited the nearest shrine this morning. Young rice paddies welcomed her who led the way weeks before when both 山櫻 and 染井吉野 cherry blossoms flourished in the garden. A pheasant guy was claiming his territory over watered green, yet never seen even in silhouette. Clear sunlight sometimes reached her hair with no cap. A bit itchy on thighs.

松 and 梅

Standard

Mei-Shun practices 松の緑 by herself at home these days. As she might mentioned before, this is the only score for those who would like 名取 status in Bando Ryu. On the other hand, beloved Master Mei-Shu said it was one of 2 scores for Kikunoe Ryu students who aim to do the same. Another was 梅の栄, which her last 名取 performed on the stage for the 1st time.

Bloom Soon

Standard

Mei-Shun walked to the nearest shrine after longer than 3-month interval. Thanks to slight rain at night a few days before, rice paddy still empty has several little pools. Going up narrow stairs, she found a cherry tree somehow in soft pink. Well, it would not take 20 days to show lovely petals. By the way, all the same combination of omikuji lots met her with 半吉=han-kichi and 末吉=sue-kichi.

Only One

Standard

Mei-Shun walked to the nearest shrine after 6-week-long intermission. That might be why she drew 凶=kyo, the worst omikuji lot. She found amazing one coin of 100 yen in a purse, tried just once. Holy Gods, she would visit you more henceforth, please forgive her whose thighs itch a little from a moment before. Now is the time to do stretching under the big tree.

Standard

This is normally 体育の日=Health and Sports Day, set on the 2nd Monday of October. Still, it was moved toward July 23rd this year by that special event held in Tokyo. Mei-Shun takes it quite nice; with no national holiday yet the novel coronavirus well contracted, compared to above month under a strict state of emergency. Her trot with Princess Maria today was under summer-like sunlight.

Standard

So lunar September starts from today. Mei-Shun visited the nearest shrine again to greet Gods first, then draw 2 omikuji. She saw 吉=kichi, lucky lots for both of the couple; one for Shin numbered the 21st, the other for herself the 45th. Now is the time to jump and stretching under that great tree. Oops, please do not bite her, mosquito. Your season is already over.

Shin and Mei-Shun recognized that sweet scent again in this early morning. Where is it coming from? The wife found the answer tree when she walked out toward the nearest shrine; in the M’s garden, just opposite to a … garbage station. Well, we are already in cooler air, no masking flavor might be necessary. Anyway, thanks a lot for your a bit delayed blossom.

It is the first time for Mei-Shun to walk to the nearest shrine in solar 2021. And it is also the last in lunar one starts from tomorrow. Novel coronavirus affects this place as well; hand-washing stone basin never stores water but ever let it flow, box of omikuji lots is accompanied by a bottle of sanitizer, reception table behind A-chan has a transparent curtain.

Happy Horsey

Standard

No exercise. No abdomen with good growling. It was Mei-Shun’s recent (正月)三が日=(shogatsu)-san-ga-nichi, first three days of a new year. That made her regain one sugar bag around the waist again. Mr. Tea Time, Princess Maria, how was your first weekend of 2021? You always bring an empty stomach which symbolizes her health. Please kindly continue to help her control both body and mind.

Spirited Spot

Standard

Walking to the nearest shrine alone has taken 3 months and a week for Mei-Shun. How nice to see blue sky, feeling cool breeze along green rice paddy! Yes, it seems to have been harvested safely during rainy last serial holidays or Silver Week. Omikuji lots said 末吉=sue-kichi, the least luck for herself while 吉=kichi, lucky for Shin. Red spider lilies might be over, just white ones kindly welcomed her.
