Happy Recovery

Standard

Rainfall and a sore throat had prevented Mei-Shun from exercises; daily stretching, walking and horsey riding until recently, for longer than three weeks. The first one is available indoors followed by kabuki dance practice, yet jumping must be avoided upstairs. Today saw it start raining a bit outdoors again, made her pull hung laundry into the shower stall to dry by an electric fan.

Charming Coincidence

Standard

Careless Mei-Shun often drops items on the floor. The most recent one was her diary from a table, when a piece of paper slipped under a chair. It was a memo from Dr. A who has given this ex-inpatient “Yes” phone calls for these 5 years. According to it, that happy message was first received on February 8th in 2020. How about the second after half an year? It was on August 8th.

Yes, Dr. A gave Mei-Shun a phone call of “Yes” 10 days before. It is a big mistake of the latter to forget such an important report to you kind followers. At the same time, this ex-inpatient feels really happy to be relaxed enough to face this matter, thanks to you all. On the other hand, she immediately let Shin know in 江差, Hokkaido on a business trip while mother in 草津.

Tea & Temperature

Standard

Keeping above the same is crucial for Mei-Shun’s good condition: hot tea in hot season. Cold one in chilling days would be awful, while nice if she relaxes in a warm, dry environment. Her stomach anyway seems to need such a care before receiving cold drinks, frozen fruits and ice cream. However, she forgets this rule every summer, fails at once to learn again.

Standard

Mei-Shun went to see Dr. A for a regular half-an-year check today. Many changes were seen there; visits were prohibited for inpatient families, all doctors and hospital staffs put on face masks in summer, less cars and outpatients including this ex-inpatient. She would wait for a phone call, yet without thinking about the result as so far. Just drive back to home, still in time for Spanish radio program.

Shining Smile

Standard

Mei-Shun visited her home dentist today for a check in every 4 months. Actually, she felt slight stains on upper incisors, worried that they might get decayed. Dr. M was kind enough laughing it off, saying it is caused by tea. Her assistant then cleaned it off, let this patient regain white teeth. Not only their technique but also finely sanitized environment is highly esteemed.

Can U find a lovely green plum?

 

Upper Lip

Standard

Meow, how do you kind followers care yourselves feeling not so good? I sleep first. Secondly, drink water as much as possible, then eat. Mom seems similar to me, with boiled water and tea to replace my room-temperature bowl. She makes it a rule to play with Ms. Piano for at least 15 minutes every day, prior to stretching and kabuki dance practice. It is only after she holds me on or between legs, purr.

Beyond Clouds

Standard

A full moon floated last night, Mei-Shun heard from a close friend. Since it rained all day long, she played “Clair de Lune” by Master Debussy on Ms. Piano, never recognizing such a romantic view over the curtain. Well, perhaps thanks to that gentle entity, Shin was relieved from hay disease while his wife from fierce appetite tortured them for a month.

It is like, weather of spring is said. Well, we have 啓蟄=kei-chitsu, 3rd of spring 二十四節気 today. It continued to rain from midnight, stopped for a while and started again: changed every one hour. Such busy turns often appear on your green, round two jewels, Mikan-chan. You look all right, as Mei-Shun does this morning in the mirror. Shall we stay indoors, away from storm outdoors?

Curtain Calls

Standard

Meow, it was too late. Mom did not feel good enough to walk to the nearest shrine in the morning. Neither did I, and rain followed soon. Since it locked us into home, she chose a photo of lovely yellow flowers below, taken the other day during her exercise above. So we are on a stage, yet still behind a curtain. Mom, it seems your condition affects mine. Please take care of yourself for our better performance together.
