It was great for visiting the nearest shrine with you, Shin. Both he and Mei-Shun drew “lucky” omikuji lots on weekend, felt hopeful going into the last three months of the year. Fluffy goldfish, you therefore may embody her luck when picked up from the floor of a dressing room, changing into an angler with an antenna on the head. If you prefer a dining table to a bag, please go ahead.
Yes, she did. Mei-Shun found her minimum weight on the scale last night, after playing with Ms. Last One and Mr. Tea Time. Not so much perspiration like in mid summer, enough hydration. It therefore seems her methods are working well, while is partly thanks to Shin who is on severer control. She wishes both of the couple the best results in November.
It seems 百日紅=saru-suberi, crape myrtles like weather of this summer: much rainfall and short heat waves. Mei-Shun enjoys one planted in backyard of the northern neighbor every morning, while finds some in full blossom of bright pink or white on the way to her horsey-riding club. She wishes their beauty to be kept for 100 days as mentioned in name.
Professor S generously gave a pretty necklace made of brown agates, when Mei-Shun visited her last week. “How nice”, Shin said immediately when he saw it. Of course it is handmade by that gentle lady who designed a lot of accessories before going to a shop of precious stones in 御徒町. She is very good at finding unique, reasonable ones to feature in her next works.
We have 処暑=shosho, the 2nd of autumnal 二十四節気 today. Well, partly thanks to successive rainfall from Tuesday, heat wave over 35 degrees Celsius seems to have gone. It serves Mei-Shun who feels something sacred to see rice paddy full of ears along the lane leading to the Gods’ place. And oh, beautiful white lily, you have a brave heart to stand against gale by the typhoon.
Professor S, please kindly take Mei-Shun’s deepest gratitude. It was a kind invitation from the former lady to visit her place for the latter today. Two pairs of “handmade” earrings motivated their appointment. They were so loosely attached onto metal parts that they have high risk to fall — her fingers are all thumbs. On the contrary, how quick and precise hands of this Madame Prof. are, to repair them!
It is Marine Day today, often equivalent to the start of summer vacation for school children. Here Mei-Shun received her watch fixed perfectly. Since blue belt on the right was broken, she asked replacement by similar one. So beautifully done, she is quite satisfied. Thank you very much, Shin. It was one of gifts from him before they married, to match her engagement ring with a sapphire.
