Joy of Walk: 2

Standard

Mei-Shun drew 2 omikuji lots at the shrine. One was 凶=kyo, the worst luck while the other 吉=kichi, lucky. And oh, number 33 for the latter sounds like meow-meow to her native ears. So this is a message from you to dad and mom, Mikan-chan. They would keep it at home as the best charm. The former was tied to a twig at feet of 狛犬 N-chan. Your kind conveyance of it for purification by Gods would be highly appreciated.

Single & Simple

Standard

Mei-Shun moves from winter clothes to summer ones little by little these days: she brings coats, gloves and knits to a nearby laundry recently restarted their business. Regarding kimono, many of her yukata seem worn out as a whole. Being frayed under sleeves may be because they are often pulled here in kabuki dance. Since all thumbs in sewing, she would ask aid from mom-in-law.

Me and Mom

Standard

Purr, she stays with me today. Dad went out early in the morning, took a business trip to Aomori. He would turn to Nagano tomorrow, saying sorry yet it is more convenient to pass us tonight. All right, there is no problem. I am in good health, so are you two. One is involved in exciting jobs outside. Another who saw nice numbers on a scale yesterday enjoys working and eating inside.

My Melody

Standard

She is a character of bunny girl, while Ms. Melody a real horsey one. The latter was kind enough to trot slowly for Mei-Shun, who was forced to employ old gears belong to the club today. They are quite old, used so long a time that weariness is serious: knee pads have become thinner pressed, stirrups are narrow. After a thrilling lesson, she recognized again that Mr. Sirius helps her a lot.

Wild Wisteria

Standard

Shin and Mei-Shun are lucky enough to be able to see seasonal flowers at home through windows. Plum, cherry and wisteria are not planted in their garden while available in “backyard” for the 1st, at a nearby bus stop for the 2nd and similar to that chimerical ume for the 3rd. The wife recently found it tangled on the top of a tree, perhaps too high to remove from.

Nice Numbers: 2

Standard

Thanks a million from Mei-Shun to you kind 464 followers. She found it on weekend, felt like you are saying yo-ro-shi-ku or “take care of us hereafter”. Although lacking 9 at last to read “ku” in our language, she would expect the next with 10 new guests rather than 10 times. Now we seem to enter a bit delayed rainy weeks in spring called 菜種梅雨=natane-tsuyu.

Cute Chocolates

Standard

Mei-Shun got her right eye all red in half like a strawberry. It is a kind of injury called subconjunctival hemorrhage. Looking recovered 90%, still a bit weird with yellowish shadow in white part. That is why she canceled an appointment with Princess Maria yesterday, while with another on Thursday. No sweets with no exercise, yet she found nostalgic, bigger ones.

Danish Delight

Standard

Mei-Shun visited her home dentist to see Dr. M for a monthly check today. For this patient, medical clinics are often followed by good bakery shops — she treats herself to sandwiches, baguettes and sweets even after coming back from above. By the way, “Double Ds” would take a leave from now on: she would stop going to Master Bando’s place for a while.

Balanced Banana

Standard

Mei-Shun found this fruit in a box of foods delivered every week. One of them is so much in a right line that a cold paper bottle was put directly onto it. She was worried if they got injured frozen, yet seem all right. Their color reminds her of a crescent in recent early morning, lay on a bed of fluffy clouds. It was not clear enough to see such a charming sight today, while called 花曇り with cherry blossom here and there.

Nice Numbers

Standard

Yes, Mei-Shun saw them on both Friday and today, after coming back from horsey riding club. So these are what she treated herself to; assorted ice creams flavored sakura or cherry blossom, apple pie, wasabi and cherry flower/red bean. By the way, the nurse who left a bruise on her left arm said that jeans and sweater weighed only one sugar bag, added a half of it to above.
