… kindly for the last date of May on Monday this year. Mei-Shun likes such an arrangement which juxtaposes a month with the next in a week. And it is by chance the  day when both of her mother and Master Bando take inoculations for that novel coronavirus. On the other hand, months closed by Fridays give her relaxed weekends at the beginning of months follow.

Fantastic Photo

Thank you so much, Professor M or Shimaneko-sensei. Yes, Mei-Shun anticipated a “supermoon” and total eclipse of it tonight. Princess Maria and Ms. Last One, are you interested in it? Please listen, there seems to be less people outdoors in daytime. That might be because many of them prepared to observe this natural, yet incredible  phenomenon.

We have 小満=shoman, the 2nd of summer 二十四節気 today. It means rainy season in Okinawa connected with next 芒種=boshu, while this week saw 梅雨の走り full of humidity and dark clouds around here. Now Ms. Piano, could you join Mei-Shun to sing moonlight scores composed by Masters Beethoven and Debussy? She saw the 3rd crescent last week, yet that was the only chance so far to see that beauty.

Rainbow Revoir

Standard

Stormy weather nearly prevented Mei-Shun from visiting a hair salon nearby Tokyo Station yesterday. Since Ms. Scarlet is under repair, Shin’s car descended from beloved father of his wife helped her to get on a train. She dropped in a department store after a haircut, purchased some plates for dinner. Then an e-mail message came from him asking where she was. Yes, let’s go home together.

Cherry Change

Standard

Oh, how lovely fruits your branches are full of! Shin and Mei-Shun visited 乙戸沼 Park together after almost half an year. They missed 八重桜=yae-sakura, petal-layered cherry blossom here, yet could greet children of that beauty. It might be the biggest difference between above breed and 染井吉野. The latter is so artificial that has no pistils for reproduction.

Today is Showa Day, named after a late emperor who represented an era Mei-Shun was born. Good rainfall continues from early morning. How do you take it, recent all-dry 2 weeks around here? Mei-Shun does as a kind of relief, hearing exultation song from everybody in our garden including Ms. Scarlet. Ms. Piano, shall we sing moonlight scores in order to ask clear sky tomorrow?

Cute Cup

It is a great pleasure of Mei-Shun to see it again at a nearby beauty salon. She visits there every 3 weeks for hair dye, served coffee, tea, green tea or fruit juice waiting for the medicine to work well. This season of cherry blossom gently makes her request one of favorite pottery among collection of the owner beautician. “What floats on surface is not dust but beaten gold”, she said.

Hi, a ladybug with 7 stars on wings, welcome into Ms. Scarlet driven by Mei-Shun. It is warm enough here to make you wake up from hibernation, isn’t it? Please listen, she means to choose a few new scores from those layered on Ms. Piano. What would you like to sing, if you could enter her room? Oh-oh, you would not but fly away. Good luck, you know well the best way to survive.

Trip to Tokyo

Standard

It is alone for Mei-Shun today, Shin went on one-night business trip to Hokkaido. And it is never nonessential or non-urgent for the wife to go out for a hair saloon, feeling of excursion just follows. Ushiku Pond, rippled by northern wind and Cup-noodle Chimney, redecorated to give clear white steam looked friendly as always through windows. Sky Tree, great to take your photo at dusk.

Pretty Pink

Here is カプすけ=kapu-suke, lovely birdy on a puffed strawberry chocolate. It is for the first time when Mei-Shun picked him up from a sweets wagon at a drug store — it has always been Shin who won him so far. Now she kisses you, darling, keep a good boy not to stay around her waist. He is also in weight control these days, let her enjoy you only in the morning, peacefully alone.
