… in the rain, right? When Mei-Shun brought a newspaper to mom-in-law this morning, she found Tora-chan sleeping on the bed. Although our garden cat, she sometimes occupies comfortable places for her “mom” including a wisteria-vine chair covered with fluffy cloth, a silk cushion and the bed of course while sheets are in the washer. Oh, please go ahead, no greeting is required.
Here is Mei-Shun’s list of partners to dance with; Mr. Vanilla Arc to gallop, Ms. Battle Madoka to trot, Ms. Last One for both and Ms. Maria to walk with a bit of trot. The last snow-white lady looks happy to go to our newly-built field in the woods, where we can enjoy playing “Gymkhana” not by car but on horsey. Her petite body is suitable to make a narrow turn around natural trees.
2018 summer has let a lot of typhoons make landfall on the Japanese archipelago. Although we have 処暑=shosho, the 2nd of autumn 二十四節気 today, both Soulik and Cimaron hit western part of our country with heat wave follows. Partly thanks to the bigger latter, Mei-Shun enjoyed riding on Maria-chan’s back in cool shadow of woods where our club constructed another lesson field.
Mei-Shun met her high-school classmates Yuko-san and Kaori-san at 維新號 in Ginza. She was so happy to see them after around 2 years when the latter kindly came all the way from Tokyo to Tsuchiura, with her husband to see 汐汲. They looked satisfied with lunch of 7 courses, making the organizer feel relieved who lists this Chinese restaurant on the top.
It is the first time for Mei-Shun to make gemstones into a necklace. Thanks a million to Professor S, who kindly helped it completed. Now the former can enjoy it with two pairs of earrings, followed below by one made by the latter lady. Another is of ancient Venetian beads used to exchange with slaves from southern countries. Sad history might sometimes appear as beauty in arts.
Here are cute, round members of our garden. Mom-in-law received this big paper pot of green necklace from Mei-Shun, keeps as it is next to her cactus corner. Baby buds of opuntia greet them with shiny silver thorns still soft. Looking forward to rainy season soon, blue hydrangea also holds a lot of little balls. May we expect many flowers after your interval of last year?
Please find gifts from Mei-Shun to Maria and Madoka-chan respectively following below. The former is so noble, isn’t she? White coat allows her to look good in any color, yet the best is the simplest from one of her buffs’ viewpoint. On the other hand, the latter is in black-brown which accommodates all shade as well. Mei-Shun therefore referred to opinion from Ms. I, “mom” of Madoka-chan.
