New Moon

Standard

We have 八朔=hassaku, not meaning the orange breed Mei-Shun loves but the beginning of lunar August today. It is said to be a time when we should be wary of typhoons, while an autumnal rain front would stay above us through this week. Thanks to such information, she was able to enjoy riding Maria- and Madoka-chans before it started raining hard.

Lovely Guest

Standard

Hi, welcome onto Ms. Piano. You are the baby gecko who took a rest on Mei-Shun’s apron the other day, aren’t you? Although she must be very careful not to let roaches in at the beginning of autumn, no trap would be available — she has made one of your friends pass away in a sticky box, felt so sorry. Please stay as long as you would like. We hope you could find something tasty here.

Double Shocks

Standard

2018 summer has let a lot of typhoons make landfall on the Japanese archipelago. Although we have 処暑=shosho, the 2nd of autumn 二十四節気 today, both Soulik and Cimaron hit western part of our country with heat wave follows. Partly thanks to the bigger latter, Mei-Shun enjoyed riding on Maria-chan’s back in cool shadow of woods where our club constructed another lesson field.

Little Star

Standard

Oh, you are the one grown on Mei-Shun’s balcony, aren’t you? Whitish violet stays on every short stalk, shining at the bottom of cherry trees. Great to see you at 乙戸沼 Park again. Of course you have a real name, yet please let her call you after far-away asteres aplanis. Their light reach our mother earth traveling billions of years, just like you did to give a new life onto a withered flower plate.

Peanuts Serve

Standard

Shin rarely had a day off yesterday. He cleaned his study room while Mei-Shun lead her normal day till noon. They went out for lunch at いしじま, one of their favorite soba restaurants nearby. Looking up from a menu, the wife found a poster featuring bottled beer from K. company produced at their Toride plant. It means freshness available only in Ibaraki Prefecture!

Called Pink

Standard

Yesterday morning, Mei-Shun drove to one of her favorite bakeries. She needed to turn to the left at the second corner, yet to the first with no intention. Then she came across it — a silk tree in full blossom. Hello, great to see you in the same color. She tends to choose bright shade in clothes and accessories on rainy days, refraining from perfume while going opposite to sunny weather.

Missing Moon

Standard

Lunar May has started from yesterday. It was a bit cloudy, yet clear enough to let Mei-Shun see lovely horseies for lessons. Oh, this was 大安 as well, the best among 六曜 for her elder sister’s birthday. “Congratulations!” e-mail took just a minute for a thankful reply. She was too tired to play piano at night, while a good result on a weight scale shed bright light into her mind.
