Dish Washer!!

Standard

You too, quite young — just 2-year-old one? Shin ordered 2 gas cookers for Mei-Shun and his mother respectively, adding you for the wife only. Have you been envying busier environment of your colleague? No, it was from the first day when you refused to work. Or it might not be your error but of the mechanic who was in charge of your installment. Anyway, latest model would replace you soon.

Farewell tonight.

Refrigerator!

Standard

Oh, what happened to you? You and Ms. Microwave is the oldest couple at home of Shin and Mei-Shun. The husband first recognized something weird in you, while the wife followed this morning finding that inner air of you seems to stay just a little bit cooler than room temperature. Well, with lunar new year started, would you like to retire and let them have new one?

Closed for Today

Standard

Shin and Mei-Shun went to いしじま, a peanut shop while serves you nice soba for lunch yesterday. However, it was closed — oh, oh, they should have known it. All such  restaurants through the Japanese Archipelago would prepare for the last day of the year. Yes, she reserves tasty one in the freezer of course. And thanks a lot, mom-in-law for frying shrimps and onion tempura.

Chop, Chop

Standard

Our new laundry machine works so hard that it totally fractured a name card the other day. Mei-Shun doesn’t know WHO put it in a breast pocket, while found fine pieces of paper spread on clothes in dark colors. How sticky they were, took her half an hour to remove all. And hey, you did it again this morning! She has to put a wet-floppy parking ticket on his desk as a proof.

Pink Celebration?

Standard

It is blissful for Mei-Shun to see many “red rice” flowers along a lane to the shrine. Even in such vivid color, plants always look graceful — really enviable. Another lady in the same shade to surprise us is Momo-chan, our garden princess. She gives two flowers this autumn! It has never happened so far, while reminds the writer of a wild cherry who also bloomed twice an year at University of Tsukuba.

Joy in Miyagi: 2

Standard

Shin chose a suite room with a private garden spa at 竹泉荘. Natural hot water here has no color, no scent while its alkaline component might stimulate a bit your small cut or scratch by fluffy pets. It keeps you warmed for long time, would not need any makeup if bathe in the morning. Mei-Shun put on sneakers expecting to walk around the hotel, yet disturbed by an unexpected guest — a wild bear!

 

 

Partly Farewell

Standard

Oh, so sorry to injure you, younger Ame-chan. Mei-Shun heard a gloomy snap in you as she did in your late elder sister at breakfast. She should have been more cautious — baguette would be too sticky for you still under construction. Panicked for a while, she made an appointment with Dr. N, her another home dentist from noon. She removed broken piece, covered it for the next treatment. Really a silver lining.
