Horsey Highness

Standard

Hello, Mr. Great Fighter, nice to dance with you again. Mei-Shun actually came here only 4 times this month. She must have done twice, yet rain/snowfalls, others came up and her own condition prevented it. That means she got on a scale less — to her relief, nice or so-so numbers appeared there. You have never thought about weight control, slender Ms. Ageha=swallowtail butterfly.

Bucket Bouquet

Standard

Here Mei-Shun exchanged vases of Christmas/wedding anniversary and birthday gifts from Shin. The former had fresh roses, carnations and lisianthuses already removed to dry, needs no water any more. Mr. Green is therefore suitable to accommodate it, let the latter relax in a glass tall and large enough. And the owner is so vigorous that brings this vivid, aromatic one to the bedroom every night.

Covert Cut?

Standard

A few years seem to pass after Mei-Shun bought a bucket to put horsey gears within. It has served her by normal jobs; to water outdoor units of air conditioners in summer, to wash cleaning rags for example. Now Mr. Green, could you work as a flower vase for a lovely bouquet Shin gave her recently? He kindly said yes, while making several drops on a plastic sheet.

Too Tired

Standard

So 2023 started for Shin to work from today. Since 元旦=January 1st was amazingly on Sunday, we managed to have 2nd a national holiday. However, 3rd is not printed in red on our new solar calendar meaning a weekday. Many of us therefore had serial holidays from December 29th, 2022 — just 5 days, quite shorter than usual. On the other hand, above husband of Mei-Shun continued his business until the end of last year.

Celebration Continues

Standard

Yes, it does for Mei-Shun until lunar Christmas Day next year. On the other hand, she recognizes that most people in our country immediately turn to new-year preparation after that day on solar calendar. Moreover, many of them take December 24th main — including mom-in-law who replaces garden bells and ribbons by pine branches on 25th.

Nicer Numbers

Standard

We have today a full moon or 十五夜, the one at 15th night on lunar November 15th, while 七五三=7-, 5- and 3-year-old celebration. Mei-Shun takes such a coincidence somehow mysterious — only odd numbers gather on a solar date of an even number. By the way, Shin kindly handed her a box of くろ玉=sweet black balls yesterday. And oh, where have 2 of them already gone?

Keep Kettle

Standard

Even if Ms. Iron is injured, she serves enough for Mei-Shun, a tea lover who chose Chinese gray friends today. Oh, a 茶柱=tea pillar nicely stands in a mug, lets her know something good would happen soon. It might be true or wished to; we have 仏滅=butsu-metsu, the worst among 六曜 while gloomy sky. And slight rainfall began just after she hung futon mats outdoors.

Peter Pan

Standard

It is name of a bakery shop Mei-Shun likes, nearby one of clinics her home dermatologists manage. She had a wart on right collarbone, recently grown a bit too much to ignore under clothes and seat belt of Ms. Scarlet. Thanks a million, Dr. I, who checked it up to remove in a second with no pain. Your patient turned to him in a euphoric mood, yet found his car park full.

Exercise Enough

Standard

Mei-Shun got on a scale after failing to dance with Ms. Last One today. Oh no, a bit terrible numbers were there, yet increased less than a half of one sugar bag. The reason for it seems clear: lack of perspiration. Compared to last week, she tended to stay still at home with a slight fever in serial three days when no horsey nor holy shrine saw her. Such a person never deserves above delicacies.

Fantastic Friends

Standard

Please kindly let Mei-Shun show her great gratitude to you sweetest 484 followers. It seems she takes treat only, gives no trick. Mom-in-law cooked red-bean rice celebrating Culture Day, put it into tiered lacquer ware boxes shaped like a plum flower, and presented it to her. On the other hand, Ms. Madoka was mischievous enough to wipe her mouth on the back of this poor rider.
