Tokyo Tour: 2

Standard

Thanks a million, Mr. Bean. Shin looks quite satisfied with your products. Mei-Shun feels the same as well, since it was for the first time that she purchased S size. After shopping, above couple went to a restaurant where the wife had long been interested in. Hmm, this 花咲きオムライス=omelet-topped fried rice is nice, yet stewed tongue of the husband’s choice is more excellent.

Merry May

Standard

Meow, lunar month titled above starts from today. Mom walked to the nearest shrine in the morning, gave an earnest prayer to protect us all. She seems to recover from sore caused by an accident last week, visited a horsey riding club again yesterday. Coming home to get on a scale, she looked pleased so much. Purr, good of you. Please share smile with me serving the 3rd and last jelly stick.

… kindly for the last date of May on Monday this year. Mei-Shun likes such an arrangement which juxtaposes a month with the next in a week. And it is by chance the  day when both of her mother and Master Bando take inoculations for that novel coronavirus. On the other hand, months closed by Fridays give her relaxed weekends at the beginning of months follow.

Rainbow Revoir

Standard

Stormy weather nearly prevented Mei-Shun from visiting a hair salon nearby Tokyo Station yesterday. Since Ms. Scarlet is under repair, Shin’s car descended from beloved father of his wife helped her to get on a train. She dropped in a department store after a haircut, purchased some plates for dinner. Then an e-mail message came from him asking where she was. Yes, let’s go home together.

Joy of Park: 1

Standard

Lunar April starts from today, meaning a new moon at night. 染井吉野 has long been expected to bloom in the same month on solar calendars, yet often does within March these days. On the other hand, iris seems to stay in their best season. 乙戸沼 Park accommodates a lot of aquatic plants including that violet beauty, gives Shin and Mei-Shun a kind of relief.

Standard

Children’s Day has come. It represents 柏餅=kashiwa-mochi and 粽=chimaki sweets for Shin and Mei-Shun, rather than streamers shaped like carps or samurai armors and helmets. We also have 立夏=rikka, the 1st of summer 二十四節気 today. It should mean a beginning of dry, comfortable season full of sunlight, yet too stormy to go outdoors this year. Above couple decided to make stay-home exemplar.

Missing Moon

Standard

So lunar March starts from today. Mei-Shun takes it really lucky to be able to see Princess Maria, Ms. Last One and Madoka-chan for dancing together celebrating true season of peach flowers. The same month on solar calendar was abnormally warm, looks like exchanging temperature and rainfall with current one. Or are we April fools joked by 2021?

Glorious Green

Standard

Our fiscal 2021 starts from today, meaning year end of 2020 yesterday. Mademoiselle Vert seems to know it, greeted Mei-Shun with her first kissing bud in the morning. Thanks a lot, honey, you are so clever that waited for the best timing to bloom. Or did Momo-chan contact you to hand an eye-comforting batten? “Yes mom, great to see you, dad and Mikan-chan again.”

Thank you so much, kind followers. Mei-Shun caught blissful 388 of you today, after coming home from kabuki dance lesson by Master Bando. She and Ms. S have excellent technique to bind obi sash, promised this 名取 of other party, whose hands are made of all thumbs, to give generous instruction. She wishes 399 of you to find her better soon, while a お太鼓 bound on the back.

雪柳, snowy willow also bloomed

Spring Special

Standard

Another pink and green have come to follow strawberry. Mei-Shun is a lover of 桜=sakura, cherry who cannot stop purchasing flavor of those flower and fruit. On the other hand, 抹茶=powdered green tea often accompanies 桜 sweets. It might mean to lead us to image of 野点=nodate, tea party held outdoors. It was inhibited last year under cherry trees, cordially wished soon.
