Buzz & Beep

Standard

We have a full moon tonight. 大安=tai-an, the best day among 六曜. And power outage before noon that Mei-Shun has already been informed on. Construction cars arrived around 10 : 30 in warm sunlight, started to replace electrical wire. A fixed telephone stopped soon, 20-min. blackout. However, nothing woke up after 30 minutes passed. She went down to see mom-in-law who asked “what is a breaker”?

Joy of Walking: 1

Standard

Shin and Mei-Shun recognized that sweet scent again in this early morning. Where is it coming from? The wife found the answer tree when she walked out toward the nearest shrine; in the M’s garden, just opposite to a … garbage station. Well, we are already in cooler air, no masking flavor might be necessary. Anyway, thanks a lot for your a bit delayed blossom.

We have 秋分=shu-bun, autumnal equinox today. Mei-Shun misses mother’s handmade o-hagi, while a bit shocked by the same plant in our garden. Mom-in-law is a wonderful manager, yet sometimes turns into a potent branch-cutter. Bushclover is quite a strong breed, often looked blooming twice an year around here in Ibaraki. Or many gardeners  give it a chance to work out.

Sleepy Sisters

Standard

Mei-Shun found above pendants the other day in a drawer full of accessories. She opened a heart-shape box, picked up a ruby ring to carelessly drop the box onto the floor. So sorry, other residents with pink stones, spilt here and there. Are you all right? Please let her make it a chance to clean your room. Oh? Hi, twin sisters made of bread clay. Decades have passed since her beloved father brought you home.

Hello, Ms. Sagittarius, great to see you again. Mei-Shun anticipated enjoying dance with you today, yet was forced to give it up by a heavy rainfall. On the other hand, they lately have changed a system at our club: members are required to fill in application forms, appear in person to decide reservation order by lot. Well, we see, yet where did your paperless goal go?

Autumn Arrival

Standard

Meow, really an amazing change of air. A new month starts, hotness has all gone. Still, humidity seemed to stay in the bedroom of dad and mom. She put a dome-shape bed in mine, worrying a bit if I make it a restroom. That was because it is too fluffy to use at summer night, while welcome when it becomes much cooler like this early morning. Thanks for your warm regards, mom.

Cool Change

Standard

So we reached the last day of the most torrid month in our country. Mei-Shun visited Master Bando, put on upper 半襦袢=han-juban, kimono underwear in half and a pair of pants. Such a weird combination is only available here, within today. Now she drops in a post office to purchase stamps to send 残暑見舞, greeting card at the end of summer. Oh, a heavy rainfall seems to have come for tomorrow.

Shrimp Shock

Standard

Oh-oh, thanks and sorry, Shin. He went on a business trip to Nagoya, brought home a can of … cracker. Called ゆかり=yukari, made Mei-Shun take it as a famous topping on a bowl of rice. However, she merrily removed above golden lid to find poor, beaten water creatures. Such density of a food-ingredient animal is too high for her. May she close it and run away?

Easy & Tasty

Standard

Have some of you 422 kind followers heard of 冴緑=sae-midori, clear-green tea? Mei-Shun has never, yet younger sister-in-law gave her samples including this breed introduced as long as 30 years before. She first took them as small-packed leaves, prepared a warmed pot to find tea bags. By the way, she decided to move above green in a vase toward air-conditioned room.

Crescent Claw?

Standard

Mei-Shun found several bow-shaped scars on her lower abdomen, when warming in a bathtub. Some already recovered, others still flushed. Did Mikan-chan … no, she cannot scratch her mom on such a place. Or underwear for horsey riding? Hmm, it might cause, yet once or twice a week … ah, massage with her own palms. Short nails seem to be preferred not only by Ms. Piano.
