Mei-Shun moved to 神保町 after a snack with Shin. A little exhibition of Kaori-san‘s work is held at a bookstore there. This area is so famous for many, various bookstores that newspapers and TV programs often feature it these days in reading season. Now, among several petites drawings on Lokta paper, Mei-Shun chose one lovely Dajaleine-chan is gazing at a piece of mille-feuille.
It is a cherry tree planted in the field of horsey riding club Mei-Shun goes to. Could you kind followers find it blooming a little? Compared to springtime, flowers might look smaller and whiter. According to her mother, it is their effort to store more nutrition within their main body after losing many leaves assaulted by summer worms. You know it well, Mr. Magical Thunder, or don’t you?
We are expecting 仲秋の名月, the best moon of the year tonight. However, clouds are so much spread in the sky that it looks very difficult to hold a party serving rice-cake balls for the gentle, bright figure. Mei-Shun feels sorry, yet autumn has just begun. Cicadas are still singing lively on sunny days, while cricket chorus is getting louder night by night.
Shin returned from Perth, Australia yesterday. He sent to Mei-Shun following photos taken at nearby dunes between business, moved her a great deal. She feels that such a shining place accommodates guardian deity. That might be one of the reasons why he came home safely and quickly from Narita Airport, where access was severely hit by Typhoon Faxai.
It seems 百日紅=saru-suberi, crape myrtles like weather of this summer: much rainfall and short heat waves. Mei-Shun enjoys one planted in backyard of the northern neighbor every morning, while finds some in full blossom of bright pink or white on the way to her horsey-riding club. She wishes their beauty to be kept for 100 days as mentioned in name.
We have 処暑=shosho, the 2nd of autumnal 二十四節気 today. Well, partly thanks to successive rainfall from Tuesday, heat wave over 35 degrees Celsius seems to have gone. It serves Mei-Shun who feels something sacred to see rice paddy full of ears along the lane leading to the Gods’ place. And oh, beautiful white lily, you have a brave heart to stand against gale by the typhoon.
Dieter Mei-Shun realized that she is quite fond of sweet drinks, including coffee and tea to add sugar by herself. Or it might not be correct, because this sweet friend of her is a bit too caloric to get along every day. Here artificial ones like acesulfame K, aspartame, sucralose and erythritol while extracts from natural plants like stevia, monk fruit and xylitol help.
