To Tokyo

Standard

Yes, for a haircut and dinner. It has become rather rare for Mei-Shun to get on a train since that coronavirus started to bite us. Wearing a face mask, she enjoyed her sight-through-window collection including Ushiku Pond, a noodle factory and Sky Tree. Hair treatment by a professional after 2 months was great, yet the best was rendez-vous at the station with Shin who returned from Fukuoka.

Let’s Love

Standard

Meow, I need to relax on mom’s legs at least 15 minutes every day. She likes to watch weather forecasting TV on the sofa, so do I because it is the best chance. She calls me cute always, even when I simply drink water? Purr, thanks. “And you too, merely drinking tea”, dad told her. Purrr, thanks a lot on behalf of her, who knows well that he is the only one to give such a sweet comment.

Three Women

Standard

Mei-Shun visited mother’s home to meet her for the first time after 3-month request to stay within (rather than prohibition to go out of) Ibaraki prefecture. Her elder sister joined as well, enjoyed family lunch. No virus infection is sincerely hoped to throw a wet blanket on them. Oh, what a clear, rare and beautiful moon! It looks like a scoop of snow-white ice cream to be topped on a cone.

MS’s sister is good at sewing.

Mild Medicine

Standard

Thank you so much, Shin, to bring home this cute bouquet last night. Sunflowers accompanied by little green hydrangeas, full of vitamin shades to energize his sleepy wife. Mei-Shun is still beaten by a spike of temperature between Sunday and Monday; with difference of approximately 10 degrees Celsius, she stayed indoors on cool former while went out to see lovely horseies on torrid latter.

Last Weekday

Standard

… of this month we have today. How was it for you kind followers? Mei-Shun feels it quite fine, which has become nice time to rethink about her life (slightly described here) with kabuki dance, Mikan-chan and Ms. Piano. Precisely, she is so much grateful to all of these loved ones: she experienced almost no stress under that stay-home campaign. Thanks to them and … her great sponsor Shin of course.

PM’s face masks were delivered to Shin’s office, not yet to home.

Deep Breath

Standard

It is one of the best sights around here for Mei-Shun: green paddy full of young rice. Wild ducks already come, yet queen egrets and king herons seem to wait a little more until it gets taller and greener enough to hide them. Now she is ready to draw two omikuji lots, one for Shin and the other for herself. Oh, 大吉=dai-kichi, the luckiest he got and 吉=kichi, lucky she did.

 

She Loves

Standard

Here Mei-Shun’s one of favorite months has come. May was full of young green in her childhood, yet such time seems to have got advanced for a few weeks these days. Well, everything changes, why doesn’t she enjoy it? And another reason follows, 柏餅=kashiwa-mochi and 粽=chimaki to celebrate coming Children’s Day on 5th. Thanks a lot, generous たねや for bonus leaf pies added to free delivery.

 

Flower Balls

Standard

Yes, Mei-Shun went to see 八重桜 at 乙戸沼 Park with Shin on weekend. After a heavy  rainfall on Saturday, bright pink flowers still with dewdrops on petals welcomed the couple gently. They walked all around the pond, taking many photos. Some trees planted nearby entrance gate look a bit tight, while others on another side relaxed enough to reach their branch widely.

Respect Resumptions

Standard

Hello jasmine ladies, your effort to survive cold season is highly appraised. Mei-Shun recognized your tiny buds the other day, cut dried vine to let green ones grow freely. She looks forward to seeing you bloom soon. And another beauty, although not fragrant like you, in garden is among her favorite. Please find following white snow open in the morning, closed in early evening.

Going Away

Standard

Shin and Mei-Shun visited their favorite place of the best night sakura. This weekend had snow in Tokyo while sleet in Tsuchiura, seemed much to hurt cherry blossoms. Still, they were so beautiful that let above couple get off Ms. Scarlet to take photos. Cold wind blew shots by the husband a bit, gave a petal on the window to protect one of them on driver’s seat.
