Mt. 鳴春?

Standard

Yes, nice numbers on a scale let Mei-Shun treat herself to 瓦せんべい=well-baked cookie by くつわ堂 on weekend. It is big enough to cover Shin’s face completely, gave the wife one direct bite dreamed of for as long as 2 weeks. However, there seems to be bigger one available via internet. All right, when she reach the ultimate goal where 1.5 less sugar bag has gone.

十三夜

Standard

Thank you so much, Professor M. He reminded Mei-Shun of the thirteenth moon or 栗名月 seen last night. It abruptly turned to the end of autumn from Sunday with a cold, too cold rainfall. Putting on 袷=awase or a double kimono, Mei-Shun visited Master Bando’s place today to start lesson of 松の寿, 長唄. On the other hand, Ms. S would dance 寿, 大和楽 on a stage anticipated next year.

Happy Hanako

Standard

Master Bando plans to hold a stage performance next year. It would be a simple one with no wig or long kimono, called 浴衣ざらえ=yukata-sarae or ざらい= –sarai. Mei-Shun means to dance 男舞, male-style while Ms. S female 女舞. Such a small goal gives them a kind of mettle to learn more. And bigger 本ざらえ=hon-sarae/i is anticipated after next, with 白拍子花子 putting on 金烏帽子.

居待月

Standard

September has just a week left including today. Every month, every day is important for Mei-Shun who learned that everybody has an invisible hourglass to count her/his life. She makes it a rule to find good points, upload such matters only toward this site to share them with you kind followers. She cordially wish 1 more of you would visit here to see 4-3-2 queue neatly soon.

Wait Next

Standard

Mei-Shun took the first shot against the novel coronavirus this morning. Ibaraki Prefecture set several large-scale sites for this specific purpose, one of which is a medical university nearby her home. She drove toward a parking lot of another public facility, then got on a bus to reach a gymnasium taking 5 minutes. Well, it hurt less than expected. See you 4 wks later.

Protection Pls

Standard

We had 大安=tai-an, the best of 六曜 yesterday. Mei-Shun dropped in the nearest shrine today in 赤口=shakko, among above meaning inconvenient for business, to draw 2 omikuji lots; one for Shin, the other for herself. What, 凶=kyo and 末吉=sue-kichi? They are the worst and second-worse lucks respectively. Could you dear N-狛犬 keep these on behalf of the couple?

Shot Shared

Standard

Here Mei-Shun relaxes at a nearby hair salon. Both she and the owner successfully reserved vaccine inoculations against the novel coronavirus yesterday. The former took 30 minutes while the latter a whole hour, saying “it was already full on the 1st Monday, so I chose the 2nd”. Well, just half an hour gives such a difference. MS saw all dates available except for one Saturday.

Friend Found

Standard

Mom, who is this one? One of my species living around the nearest station, I see. Dad sometimes catches their nice shots like above, while she takes my photos almost every day. You received an “Yes” phone call from Dr. A, look delighted. So if the next appointment with her next January could see you inoculated, everyone of our family except for ME would be a bit safer.

After 6Y + 17Wks

Standard

Yes, six years have passed. Mei-Shun saw Dr. A for half-an-year examination today. The former had another matter to ask the latter lady: vaccine inoculation against the novel coronavirus sounded available at this hospital. However, a small piece of paper on the wall met her eyes by chance, saying they already run out of it. Many outpatients seem to prefer a place they are used to.

Dad’s Departure

Standard

It was today of 12 years before. Mei-Shun phoned mother who sounds satisfied saying that her younger daughter never forgets this date. Well, she makes it a rule to listen only — no criticism, no opinion yet “yes” and “you are right”. It is all different from their usual conversation, let an almost-octogenarian continue to talk for an hour and a half. Dearest Daddy, is it correct?
