Peaceful Lane

Standard

We would be able to see them all in gold soon at 乙戸沼 Park. Still 40%-60% in green and yellow right now, gingko lines serve walkers and joggers a clean road in early mornings. Cherry trees put on colorful coats; green, yellow, orange and red. It seems the last one means a kind of graduation, because many scarlet leaves have already fallen on the ground to make friends with Mei-Shun’s shoes.

Lunar August

Standard

We see the slightest moon tonight. With 朔, the best day to make a wish tomorrow, Mei-Shun is still wondering how to get along with her diet. Since it has become cooler as Mikan-chan mentioned recently, perspiration during walking and horse riding is not so much compared to the one in summer. Maybe another method is necessary — “once-a-week sweets” is on the top of candidate methods list.

Punishment?

Standard

Sundays might be the key for Mei-Shun’s diet: recent 3 weekends saw her have carbohydrate after 18 : 00. Latest one was better, since she rode Madoka-chan and Vanilla Arc on Saturday, perspired much. Rain prevented her from doing so for 10 days at the end of August. It seriously affects her weight control. The more she learns how to get along with horseies, the more riding would be a salubrious aerobic exercise.

Easy Cycling

Standard

Shin purchased an E-bicycle. He was quite pleased with one in Nara where he enjoyed cycling with his wife. Actually when they do the same years ago, electric-powered bikes were not available at rental shops. Getting elder, they felt great gratitude to technology. Tora-chan, are you ready to help Mei-Shun on this too-big cardboard case? Sweet girl, he always leaves such items, only waits her to do with them.

Chestnut Carpet

Standard

It is amazing to see so many of them in green on the ground. As rice grows, summer is going steadily into the next season. Actually, following photo was taken the week before last when Shin and Mei-Shun visited the nearest shrine. He has refrained from exercise including walking these several days since a sudden pain on the right back last Friday, upsetting his wife.

Waiting For …

Standard

Our ancestors she might be, a white lily at the shrine Shin and Mei-Shun walk to in the morning. It takes just a week for buds to be clearly recognized — three flowers could be seen on this stalk soon. Another pleasure of the couple was the luckiest omikuji, all the same in number and fortune they drew respectively.

Rice ears began to appear on the top of each green, attracting many blue dragonflies with little white flowers.

 

 

Flexible Exercise

Standard

To our disappointment, annoying little flies swirl above slim canals watering rice paddy these days. Not only baking your nape, summer sunlight energizes such natural creatures. And Shin, who is involved in diet as well, has to stop walking to the nearest station in this season. That makes 乙戸沼 Park available for driver Mei-Shun in early mornings, with a thrilling experience to get on a swing after decades recently.
