Princess Maria, you look sooo charming with Mei-Shun’s gift on forehead. Is your leg all right? Kindly listen, she has a dream. If timing comes, she would like to be your mom. She also wishes to name you in Japanese 手毬=temari, meaning a ball with colorful embroidery, on the top of candidate list. That is why the last “A” of your current name is expressed by an upside-down heart.
Yesterday was so busy for Shin and Mei-Shun; solar eclipse culminated around 10:00, lunar December started with 朔, 小寒=shokan, the 5th of winter 二十四節気 which means beginning of the coldest season. Well, well, anyway, they walked to the nearest shrine for the 2nd greeting to Gods. And the wife decided her 2019 goals; to gain a Spanish certificate, to take Japanese Instructor exam, and etc.
So 2019, the last year of 平成 Era started. What do you kind followers have in mind as goals? How about Mei-Shun, would you ask? Well, since New Year’s Day is on Tuesday, she feels like leaving a step in last year. May she therefore use several more days to think about it until Sunday, the first day of lunar December? That beautiful crescent, greeted her this morning before the sun came up, would give good advice.
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.
