Enjoy Excursion

Standard

Mei-Shun visited a hair salon nearby Tokyo Station for a cut. Cool weather started just at the beginning of September let her decide to make front hair again. She met with Shin who is heading for Osaka, ate out together after longer than a whole month. Now she has 2 hours before the appointment. Shopping would not take so much, may she come earlier? … thanks a lot, see you in 30 minutes.

Double Dolce

Standard

Oh, how delightful it is! Or they are Mei-Shun means. Shin ordered a rolled cake on business, yet received two at home by his wife on weekend. It is a kind of dream for her to eat this nostalgic sweets until feeling full up. Hmm, one is coated by sliced fruits under jelly while the other whipped cream. They gave almost no effect on the scale she got on tonight after dancing with Princess Maria and Ms. Bunny Girl.

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.

Face to Face

Standard

Mei-Shun visited Master Bando instead of Tuesday. Since another Friday student canceled today’s lesson, it became much more intensive than usual. It is always concentrated of course, yet long-time student like Ms. K often joins others in performance. She has learned so many scores that helps new comers who sometimes forget how to do next.

Dawn & Dusk

Standard

They sing at, higurashi cicadas Mei-Shun means. She visited the nearest shrine by car, not on foot during midsummer. Surprisingly, both omikuji lots for Shin and herself drawn first were 凶=kyo, the worst luck — her long interval to show honor to Gods might be criticized. She put other coins into the box and tried again. Now two 吉=kichi, good and normal luck appeared.

Only Once

Standard

We have 小暑=shousho, the 5th of summer 二十四節気 today. Rainy season is expected to finish soon on solar calendar, yet seems to prolong this year as well. And 七夕=tanabata to celebrate annual rendezvous for 織姫=ori-hime represented by Vega and 彦星=hikoboshi by Altair, normally difficult to see them in the sky from the ground. However, kind slight sunlight reached Mei-Shun who loves to dry futon outdoors.

Opposite Option

Standard

We have 夏至=geshi, the 4th of summer 二十四節気 today. It also means the longest daytime of the year, yet hardly recognized because of rainy season in our country. Ms. Piano, are your keys all right in such humid air? Clouds seem to stop covering the sky tonight. So could you join Mei-Shun to praise moonlight with great scores composed by Masters Debussy and Beethoven?

There They

Standard

ARE, that Mei-Shun knew well. When she drove to a storage space almost a month before, 2 pieces of futon coverings were all lost. However, they were easily found behind a baggage she put last time. Hi, shy baby dinosaurs, great to see you again. And apple trees with a few fruits left for winter birds maybe, still stays folded in a package waiting to be opened.

Tokyo Tour: 1

Standard

Rainy season was finally declared today in Kanto Area; 7 days later than average, 3 days compared to 2020. Shin and Mei-Shun therefore drove to 吉祥寺 on the last sunny weekend for shopping at a famous outdoor clothes shop. His size is not always available among makers of our country, while American one nicely bigger and fashionable. May she join with this cotton-hemp shirt?

Criminal Call?

Standard

Mei-Shun received a message from a credit card company. Her phone fixed at home is ever set to reply by automatic voice, in order to avoid fraud. She therefore asked Shin later if someone contacted him regarding above matter. His answer was yes, with advice to call them back. As a result, her recent shopping via internet resembled a method of wrongdoers. A sigh of relief and gratitude!
