Gone fm Glass

Standard

Mei-Shun visited a nearby hair salon. It was rainy from early morning, let her use an umbrella besides a face mask. She put on a indigo dress with yellowish patterns, chose navy blue for the former and beige for the latter. Such color combination is enjoyable for her, while Shin and mom-in-law are never interested in that big flowers often bloom under dark clouds.

Short or Smart

Standard

Mss. K, S and Mei-Shun dance together 奴さん=Yakko-san, meaning a samurai servant these days. Master Bando chose this 端唄 light score, suggested above trio to perform it on a stage in yukata next summer. Taking it a nice idea, MS asked her to instruct them also in おてもやん=Otemo-yan, a girl with red round cheeks. All three ladies looked a kind of shocked, said they have thought she prefers long, serious 長唄 like 京鹿子娘道成寺.

Serial Sweets

Standard

Mei-Shun received 氷室饅頭=himuro-manju, steamed dough balls with red-bean jam filling this morning. Since they are the best within today, she gave some to Professor M whose beloved mother liked this delicacy from 金沢, Ishikawa Prefecture. Pale green, pink and white have been seen before — oh, colors of laundry balls to avoid clothes tangled with each other. Well, they are off in such a humid air, just let her try edible one.

Slim & Strong

Standard

Meow, my day has come. Mom seems quite happier these days, partly because my eyes stopped shedding tears — she used to wipe them out blackened and dry along nose almost every day. Yes, since tasty jelly joined my menu, I feel better. Dad is also pleased, wants me to get a bit plump. “In order to survive if you have any appetite-stealing  disease,” he says. Well, do you kind followers agree with him?

There They

Standard

ARE, that Mei-Shun knew well. When she drove to a storage space almost a month before, 2 pieces of futon coverings were all lost. However, they were easily found behind a baggage she put last time. Hi, shy baby dinosaurs, great to see you again. And apple trees with a few fruits left for winter birds maybe, still stays folded in a package waiting to be opened.

Big Bruise?

Standard

Oh, Mei-Shun fell from a horsey guy after around 2 and a half years. His name is Mr. Break, changed from Alexander. That means his ex-owner has gone, let him work as other free colleagues. You kind followers are easily able to imagine how such a change of environment affected his mind, aren’t you? So please do not blame him if she grow some stamps on her … buttocks.

Snow Spots

Standard

Oh-oh, what a big bruise on Mei-Shun’s left calf! She noticed it when put off one of long socks. Assailant is definitely known: Mr. Silver Pure whose name represents what he is. Even a good guy in a gray coat can kick a temporary trimmer with no intention but a clean heart. And that Shin has as well, who sent his wife above photo of Mt. Fuji looking a bit like her horseshoe stamp.

Rhythm Returned

Standard

Golden Week, Year-end and New-year holidays are the most dangerous for Mei-Shun. They make her feel relaxed too much to abstain from foods full of oil and sugar. And alcohol easily follows. The former of this year accommodated all of them, brought horrible 2 bags around her waist which took as long as 2 weeks to leave. Really easy to go, hard to come back.

Matsu Midori

Standard

Mei-Shun started to take lessons in 松の緑=”Green of Pine” by Master Bando. Simple, yet therefore difficult to follow her properly. 名取 candidates of her party would dance this score in front of 家元=yie-moto, a kind of CEO. Some of them were tense so much that turned to the left instead of right, above lady told three Tuesday-comers. That is the way an ex-白拍子花子 here often does.

Joy of Park: 2

Standard

Only one of fountains installed in 乙戸沼 was working under clear sky. What happened to others? It seems to Mei-Shun that water has enough oxygen currently. When all three upside-down parasols are seen, it means that residents here are kept lively enough to feed waterfowls. After nice walking, she found half of sugar bags, gained during Golden Week holidays perhaps, gone with the wind.
