Clearer Chance

Standard

As sweetest Mikan-chan kindly posted yesterday, lunar 2023 started on Sunday. Shin and Mei-Shun visited the nearest shrine, greeted Gods before receiving omikuji lots from a priest. On solar 元旦=New Year’s Day, the husband was given 小吉=sho-kichi, a little lucky while the wife 吉=kichi, lucky. This time both of above couple saw 吉=kichi in different numbers.

Day for Dance?

Standard

We have 小寒=shokan, the 5th of winter 二十四節気 today. It means the beginning of 寒=the coldest season of the year, while almost no wind, sunny enough for Mei-Shun to walk to a nearby hair salon without gloves before noon. Expecting 小望月=komochi-tsuki or 幾望=kibo at night, she cleaned up rooms in the morning to put on the 1st kimono in 2023.

Guys and Girls

Standard

Mei-Shun visited her horsey riding club today for the last time this year. She hopes to choose gentle partners to improve her technique, trying several ones including Mr. Danone Caesar. He is a son of that Deep Impact, resembles the great father in charming eyes and tinier body. And slender Madoka-chan, mom got slimmer than before. Could you help her more from next year?

Tea Together

Standard

Meow, it is the last day of 2022 for me and mom to visit Arles. However, dad e-mailed to us at noon that he had to visit Miyazaki from evening. Tiny party would therefore be held tomorrow night, with all of us attend. Now chocolate cakes seem clever choice to store in a refrigerator, while the first tarte tatin we see here. Oh, a swan made of chou à la crème is for me? Purr … purrr …

Gentle Gray

So it seems easy for you, Chinese 白茶, to stand up in a teacup. Mei-Shun loves and consumes you more quickly than brown one, also good yet rather normal. What fascinates her most is flavor of the former; flowery to nose, refreshing to mouth. If leaves come out of a pot via narrow spout, they would make 茶柱 to be sweet for eyes as well — particularly with 2 pillars.

Better to Best

Standard

… Mei-Shun would like. She has enjoyed studying Spanish to prepare for a test on Sunday. Her priority is always given to support for Shin including good health of herself, house keeping second. Horsey riding, singing with Ms. Piano, practicing kabuki dance and something new follow as above language. Now shall she take another novel, or choose one to improve from her hobbies?

Clear Color

Standard

Mom cleaned up rooms yesterday to draw Mr. Blue from 押入れ=Japanese-style closet again, purr. Since it is said to be freezing in December, she decided to get him ready for dad who is more sensitive to such weather than me. Another news came to her exultation: a sumo wrestler she likes will return to a 関取=seki-tori, up into 十両 rank after a whole year.

Graceful Gingko

Standard

So lunar November starts from today, meaning a new moon at night. Mei-Shun was too busy in the morning to visit and make a wish at the nearest shrine, rushed out for horsey riding in the afternoon. Caused by a heavy rainfall yesterday, club field was so muddy that she made a poor performance on Ms. Melody. Good news came after coming back home — she saw nice numbers on a scale again.
