Cute Cup

Standard

It is a great pleasure of Mei-Shun to see it again at a nearby beauty salon. She visits there every 3 weeks for hair dye, served coffee, tea, green tea or fruit juice waiting for the medicine to work well. This season of cherry blossom gently makes her request one of favorite pottery among collection of the owner beautician. “What floats on surface is not dust but beaten gold”, she said.

Finger Fatigue

Standard

TV news featured a lady soon reaching 100 years old this morning. She played well the 1st movement of “Moonlight” and “For Elise” composed by Master Beethoven. These are in repertoire of Mei-Shun who has approximately half the age of above grandma. Ms. Piano, do you understand why neither of them play the 3rd movement of the former piece again?

Garden Guardian

Standard

Hi, Tora-chan, thanks to help mom-in-law. It seems the best to take care of greens and flowers today, with a bit too much warmth last week while returned to normal after 清明=seimei, the 5th of spring 二十四節気 on Sunday. Why are you two moving just like each other? And you sweet tabby, please say hello to the Ys when you enter their space full of grown butterbur.

Better Bed

Standard

Meow, it rains from early morning today. Mr. Blue never worked last week nor an air conditioner where mice with black wings lived several years before. However, coldness suddenly came back to make me feel a bit tired. I would like mom to hold me on her legs for as long as possible. My friends including Mr. Minion, Jun-jun and Relaxing teddy also help for my comfortable naps.

Icy Interest

Standard

In our country, “ice cream” has 15% or more milk solid including 8% or more fat. 10% of the former while 3% of the latter for “ice milk”. Well then, it might be better to choose milk rather than cream when you are involved in weight control like Mei-Shun. However, there is no difference in calories of さくら=sakura, cherry blossom flavor and 桜小豆=sakura azuki, sweet red-bean added.

Acknowledgement

Standard

Please take Mei-Shun’s deepest appreciation again, kind followers. She saw 399 of you minutes before — 398 yesterday. Lead by March or the 3rd month, she has actually meant to catch 383 and 393. However, you were too quick and generous to accept this little site. And well, 3 says “than” in our language while 9 “kyou”. That might be the reason why she made above mistakes.

Oops, One

Standard

Oh, it still stays around Mei-Shun’s waist. Since she felt lighter there thanks to original methods, all the same number as last week on a scale was unanticipated. It might be partly because of a sudden rainfall while she was on the back of Princess Maria: water weighs more than solid. Or simply, weight loss is not always proportional to body shape-up.

Sunlight Sometimes

Standard

Meow, mom went out for a haircut in Tokyo. Stormy rainfall has gone, it is a quiet day which I like. She finished laundry hanging indoors, left me asleep under her 半纏 kimono coat on the sofa. Mr. Blue still works well, keeping me warm from early morning. After vernal equinox on Saturday, it seems to dawn around 5 : 30 when she gets up on weekends.

Not ghost but photobomb, purr.

Sakura Sweets

Standard

So Mei-Shun saw one bag of sugar around the waist yesterday. She knows why, happy white-day gifts came from Professor K and Shin. Both of them are on the list of her favorite; 銀の鈴 or white-bean-jam balls coated with chocolate, while a special cake made only 7 per day by 玻璃絵洋菓子工房. Rice-porridge method, please help her who ordered various cups of ice cream to arrive next Friday.

Poor Princess

Standard

Oh, what happened to Nausicaä? Or to Mei-Shun who asked Shin to order a score book composed by Mr. H. Joe. It was to play “Windy Valley” featuring above heroine on Ms. Piano, yet these clumsy fingers touch a lot of wrong keys today. They spare no time to practice “Princess of Mononoke” instead for latest months, making it sound so-so if played slowly.

And to U, Mademoiselle Vert.
