Mei-Shun would miss that beautiful crescent tonight. Between quiet rainfall, she walked to the nearest shrine and drew two 吉=kichi, lucky omikuji lots for Shin and herself. Actually it was末吉=sue-kichi, the least lucky for the husband while凶=kyo, the worst luck for the wife yesterday. On 9th, 朔日=the first of lunar September, she could not greet Gods: doors were closed, lot box was put away.
Thank you so much, Dr. A. She gave Mei-Shun a “Yes” phone call just when Shin tried to park Ms. Scarlet at the hospital his wife visited 2 weeks before, while his mother stays from Wednesday. Her room is on the 2nd floor where Dr. A is current head. That is why the ex-inpatient came across her along the corridor, and this 3-adult family was allowed to enjoy Tsuchiura Fireworks from the roof floor on Saturday.
Oh, there you are. When Mei-Shun tried to move one of grapefruit pots to avoid strong sunlight from the west, she found something different among green leaves. It is so nice to see you grown up enough; clear to recognize your mother. And oh, not only you but another bigger! Well, it seems quite difficult to feed you both here. Why don’t one of you make a little travel to other place?
Mei-Shun felt a slight pain in her upper right jaw the other day. Yes, right this time. She immediately contacted her home dentist to make an appointment with Dr. M today. First, a little hole with dirt seemed to be the reason. However, when the doctor removed it, a crack was found within — such a shame. So 4th of next month would be the date of destiny. To save, or not to save.
Our national broadcasting said this morning that authorities in charge may punish companies if they would not let employees take at least 5 paid holidays per year. Well, from similar viewpoint, Shin seems fine to be off from Thursday afternoon to yesterday — while on business today, when obon vacation starts for normal workers. Mei-Shun therefore understands it came earlier.
Mei-Shun was forced to see Dr. M, her home dentist to take care of a molar on her upper left jaw. It was around 2 weeks ago when she heard a snap there at a meal. Nothing happens while free, yet hurts a little to chew except for boiled eggs, simmered vegetables and rice porridge. With X-ray image showing no trouble, Dr. M shove the molar to let bite go better.
Mei-Shun found a tiny God whose baby clothes seen above an offering box of the nearest shrine. So he/she might come to celebrate Mei-Shun’s mother whose 77th birthday is today. On the other hand, her younger daughter is encouraged to do more: her omikuji lot showed 末吉=sue-kichi, the least lucky. That white lily has grown into double size, carrying a lot of buds. They seemed to say “don’t worry”.
