Color of the Sea

Standard

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.

Welcome Home

Standard

Meow, I saw dad after a week. Mom was a bit panicked, maybe because she woke up around the time when his car arrived in front of the gate early this morning. After a flight of nearly a whole day, he looked quite tired. She therefore prepared bath and breakfast immediately, while the woman she calls mom-in-law cooked pork ginger. Now everything’s over, hold me on your knee. Purr … purrr …

Rainbow Doubled

Standard

晴耕雨読 meaning to farm on sunny day, to read on rainy day used to be our custom in good old days. And it still continues in how Mei-Shun does; to enjoy horsey-back riding when it is from clear to cloudy, to dance when it rains or snows. She owes all of it to Shin who works hard no matter what color the sky puts on, saying that her smiling, healthy face deserves every bacon he brings home.

Full of Vitamin

Standard

Thank you so much, Shin. It’s really an extreme surprise and pleasure of your wife to receive such a pretty gift on a normal day. She loves flower shades including orange, salmon pink, yellow, white and pale green. Her butterfly-shaped orchid named in the last color has had 20 sisters, with poor one fallen by careless Mei-Shun who pressed a pillow toward the pot feeling sleepy.

Gingko Green

Standard

You are the prettiest, green shells. Mei-Shun always enjoy seeing them come out of “buds” rolled tightly together. They soon spread crossed sleeves to reach toward the sky, start yearly cycle until falling on the ground in yellow. Our backyard tree still holds little babies, already grew into school children in Osaka and going kindergarten with willow friends at 乙戸沼.

 

Mademoiselle Vert

Standard

Thank you so much, Professor S. Mei-Shun received a lovely orchid from that intelligent, yet soft-touch lady on Saturday. It was almost the same day when she kindly came to see the ex-inpatient at hospital 4 years before with a bouquet of colorful sweet peas. And it was also the brilliant timing when Ms. Yellow Card woke up from one-year nap to bloom again.

Beauty Ever

Standard

So Mei-Shun had her lunar birthday yesterday. She is quite satisfied with success in bringing the gift from Shin longevity; dried via “parasols”, salmon pink and orange color in 35 fresh roses almost kept. Or stronger yellow shade from nearby princesses, making them more chic. However, she is too careless to pass by safely. Please let her say sorry and pick up petals still giving sweet scent.
