Thank you so much, Dr. A, who gave Mei-Shun a “Yes” phone call during this o-bon vacation. That became the happiest お盆玉 for the latter. She celebrated it with a glass of tasty 月の桂=tsuki-no-katsura, a cloudy and sparkling sake made in Kyoto. Scotch whiskey, 芋焼酎=imo-shochu and 泡盛=awamori are normally preferred, it has never brought her a hangover.

Chestnut Carpet

Standard

It is amazing to see so many of them in green on the ground. As rice grows, summer is going steadily into the next season. Actually, following photo was taken the week before last when Shin and Mei-Shun visited the nearest shrine. He has refrained from exercise including walking these several days since a sudden pain on the right back last Friday, upsetting his wife.

Mei-Shun met Dr. A after 3 months from the previous appointment in spring. Diagnosis of current day was all right, while it would take 2-3 weeks to know results of check in blood sample as usual. If “Yes” phone call would come true, her next reservation will be fixed on October 31st when she would be happy to say “Trick or treat”. Oh, is it summer Day of Ox? Well, she prefers other fish in Tokyo tomorrow to eels today.

 

8H Carbo

Standard

It works quite well. Some of Mei-Shun’s friends carry out 8-hour diet, gave her a hint for an original method. They are allowed to eat anything, anytime within 8 hours. Other 16 hours would be used for digestion and rest for intestinal tracts. Sounds logical, yet the essence seems to be in another factor: those watching weight tend to eat less than before. That is why Mei-Shun decided to allot 8 hours to carbohydrates.

Thank you so much, Dr. A, for giving Mei-Shun a “Yes” phone call yesterday. It was recorded by her fixed device, not by portable one. The latter was in a bullet train returning from奈良 via 新大阪, moving too fast to catch such a faint radio wave. Next appointment is set on July 25th. She hopes her current method would safely pass the halfway of losing weight till then.

Lunar April

Standard

It starts from today, meaning the best day to wish. Mei-Shun’s is good health of course, with her stumbled weight management. Recent omikuji lots said that she would recover from the disease even if she has trouble right now. Or that the disease she has suffered from for a long time would turn to better direction. Well, it might be a disease. Not only her efforts but science would be the best medicine.

Great to see this date — two years have already passed since Mei-Shun had the operation. She has never seen the carp princess after leaving the hospital, while saw many in the air at Tokyo Tower on Saturday. We would be able to see them swim lively within Golden Week, 10-day leave this year including serial weekdays on May 1st and 2nd. Mei-Shun hopes it allows her to forget a phone call from Dr. A.
