Even if Ms. Iron is injured, she serves enough for Mei-Shun, a tea lover who chose Chinese gray friends today. Oh, a 茶柱=tea pillar nicely stands in a mug, lets her know something good would happen soon. It might be true or wished to; we have 仏滅=butsu-metsu, the worst among 六曜 while gloomy sky. And slight rainfall began just after she hung futon mats outdoors.
Mei-Shun was very happy to notice 4 buds at the bottom of Princess Cymby last month, has taken joyful care of them. The 1st one was found earlier as leaves, followed by the 2nd and two flowers. Please kindly accept her deepest appreciation, Your Highness. No petals in yellowish green were seen indoors last winter, while 蝋梅 flourished outdoors giving sweet scent.
Tell U TruthStandard
Hi, 雁金=karigane green tea. It is quite reasonable compared to others Mei-Shun likes including 嬉野茶=ureshino– and 知覧茶=chiran-cha from Kyushu. However, its taste is never inferior to them made of leaves only. To be honest, it is just today when she learned that above name is used in Kyoto, while calling it 茎茶, meaning stalk tea is normal in major part of our country.
Mei-Shun went to a hair salon nearby Tokyo Station after a few days more than 2 whole months. With a slight rain, it was not the best for treatment yet cool enough to set bangs again. 牛久 Pond was halcyon as usual, a chimney of a famous noodle maker was working well. However, it was not easy to catch that 634-meter high broadcast tower whose top fully covered by grey clouds.
Thanks a lot, Master 二所ノ関=nisho-no-seki. He sent Shin and Mei-Shun a face towel his current and previous names printed on. It serves as a small gift for above couple to join the support group. However, why did 番付表=sumo wrestler ranking list of 九月場所=September or autumnal tournament arrive first? It seems better to convey gratitude before a 15-day match starts.
Last Saturday was 八朔=hassaku, 1st of lunar August. Mei-Shun visited the nearest shrine to greet Gods and make a wish drawing omikuji lots. Her favorite cicadas 蜩=higurashi and Tuk-tuk 法師=hoshi were singing lively there, while almost none of the former around her place. And it may be too cool today for them to play their instruments on the back. Oh, slight rain started to fall.
Severe to SoftStandard
It rained heavily this morning, made Mei-Shun quite worried about horsey-riding lessons she reserved in the evening. Sunlight seems to have chosen milder way, sometimes pats us on the back in the afternoon. Now could you dance, Mr. Hallelujah Sunday and Ms. Nuts, with her who puts on a vest works as an airbag instead of kimono?
Smile in SkyStandard
We were expecting to see that gentle lady again tonight. However, Typhoon Meari seems to plan a landfall on our archipelago tomorrow, might carry too many clouds to enjoy above beautiful sight. And oh, it started to rain around 21 : 00 when Mei-Shun was playing Ms. Piano to serve Shin his favorite score composed by Master Bach. Well, they are happy for Princess Cymby who can have a natural shower after weeks.
Mei-Shun cleaned up rooms in earlier morning, avoiding harsh sunlight which leads to a lot of beads on her face. She reserved a hair salon nearby Tokyo Station in the evening, leaving home around 15 : 00. Just before opening the door, Shin gave her a message that it rains hard there. However, the wife found no teardrop on train windows nor streets outdoors. It might be a sudden downpour.
Great to see you again, dear Bambi. Shin and Mei-Shun went out for dinner last night, served above bottle, a glass of wine and superb dishes at one of their favorite restaurants. White asparagus was featured on the menu top, nicely grilled covered with whipped sauce. Quite caloric followed by meat plates, yet all would be consumed by dancing in a wood with Princess Maria for the wife today.
