Dry Promptly

Standard

Here are pink roses Shin gave Mei-Shun on her birthday. Beauty lasts short — it is very difficult to keep them fresh. One week seems to be the limit to let them stay on soaked sponge, from her experience. She should not hesitate to pull them out of the silver pot. If hung upside-down in time, they would not so much change both in shape and color. Returning to the throne, their longer life of princess starts.

Second Resonance

Standard

We have 大寒=daikan, the last and coldest of 二十四節気 today. However, it has been so warm for a few days that Mei-Shun felt really comfortable walking to the nearest shrine. To her surprise, the priest sat still in the main building. She had to ask him omikuji lots instead of helping herself. No.8 大吉=dai-kichi, the luckiest for Shin. What would come next for her?

All the same, as they had on NY Day.

Saloon Shopping

Standard

Mei-Shun’s hair is taken care by two; a woman for dyeing, a man for cut and curl. However, she has to change the latter, search one nice. Required conditions might depend on you kind followers — hers from the most important to more are technique, communication and price. Location is also imperative, expected in Tokyo to enjoy date with Shin or friends.

New Bed

Standard

… and food for you, baby butterflies. Mei-Shun felt sorry when she found 2 of 5 disappeared from their previous places — her grapefruit pots. They were not lucky enough, born on smaller trees. Now all three survivors live on the biggest, yet soon starve or caught by birds. You had better move to a kumquat tree in the garden, she would help you.

You are the cleverest.

Last Twins

Standard

Thank you so much, Mademoiselle Vert, for still staying beside Mei-Shun in lovely two. She might have to say good-bye soon, yet won’t miss you. Please let her share efforts to see your sisters next year. And now, dear Tea-kun, you are ready for today’s last lesson. A star in forehead makes you more handsome, looking like a prince. Shall we dance, in gallop soon?

Butterfly Babies

Standard

Hi, welcome back to Mei-Shun’s grapefruits. What kind of wings would you have? Summer still stays around here, pressed by a new-born typhoon. Sorry for missing the best timing to water your beds — she felt too exhausted under such a grilling sunlight. One of you are very clever to hide within a rolled leave, while another has already changed clothes.

Traveling Around

Standard

Mei-Shun froze when she found her marriage ring has no diamond. She recognized it was not so stable on a hole of platinum from a few years before, yet might be too optimistic. Actually, Shin also lost his sapphire a decade ago. Now that both of the couple let their respective stones start on a journey, they must choose another design aiming at their silver wedding anniversary.
