Fresh Form?

Standard

Mei-Shun is a fruits lover. She normally prefers them in 旬=shun, meaning season best; strawberry in spring, cherry in early summer followed by peach and melon, grape and pear in autumn, table orange and apple in winter. However, Christmas calls for the first one in our country. It is a bit too hard and sour to enjoy in the raw, often served dried, preserved and mixed in cream.

Bow-Wow, Bow-Wow

Standard

Meow, they say today is Dog Gift Day, reading month and date numbers as its 4 barks in our language. They should be cared with present boxes like Christmas Day? Hmm. Mine is February 22nd, set in the same 1987 as above by chance. By the way, this fish looks like coming directly from the sea of Nagasaki. Is it a treat for me, dad? Or did mom apply that idea of animal welfare?

Too Soon?

Standard

Hi, Princess Maria. Mei-Shun failed to attach a new pair of stirrups to Mr. Sirius today, just came to meet and dance with you. Oh? Where is your name in silver rhinestones on forehead band? They have gone, maybe when washed with an antiseptic. All right, new one would be a Christmas gift for you. A fluffy accessory would also be attached, please kindly give her a moment.

Three Tresses

Standard

Mei-Shun found this lovely flower on a pot where Shin’s Christmas gift were arranged years before. She first thought they were twins, yet little another found twining around the tallest one. Hi, great to see you here again. Which do you represent; Shin, mom-in-law and MS, or this couple accompanied by Mikan-chan? Either would be fine, with only difference that the wife is shorter than the husband.

Silky Suede

Standard

Thank you so much, Shin, for following sneakers as Christmas gift to Mei-Shun. She decided coloring of each part, he kindly ordered them last year. That is why the box behind is read “N by U”. Actually, last month saw her say good-bye to several old shoes including a similar pair, boots, etc. She wished them to leave her feet carrying away a lot of pernicious viruses.

Thank Thee

Standard

Mei-Shun cordially means to you kind followers. She has never imagined to see such number, over 300 within this year. Although the slightest compared to famous others, she would love to continue on this little site. Mikan-chan, Ms. Piano and Masters Mei-Shu and Bando, please take her huge appreciation as well. She wishes you all a very Merry Christmas!

And to you Shin, of course.

Tokyo Tree

Standard

We have 大雪=tai-setsu, the 3rd of winter 二十四節気 today. Compared to the 2nd 小雪=sho-setsu, it would be colder getting into the middle of current season. However, it is clear with almost no wind, warmer than cloudy yesterday. All the more Saturday when freezing nimbus covered Kanto region only. Mei-Shun therefore feels lucky for having her hair curled on a quiet sunny day.

Just Thankful

Standard

Mei-Shun sometimes wonders if she can exactly express her gratitude to Shin, yet please let her say that his generosity, patience and … love is profoundly appreciated as always. Beautiful bouquet full of her favorite colors, too heavy to hold in a silver pot representing their 25th anniversary. Cool helmet for horsey riding with velvet surface and Swarovski stones. Lovely 簪, a kimono accessory coated by Japanese lacquer.

X’mas Together

Standard

They have joined Shin and Mei-Shun’s place recently. Titled “Blue Bins”, a lovely girl with her hair bound in a chignon looks at you. She might be a princess of a castle within one of these bottles. Thank you for coming out of it. Could you save eyes of your new family? On the other hand, he/she has not yet had any name, born within Kaori-san‘s world to represent a drop of water.

Joy at Kyoto: 4

Standard

So this is her 3rd exhibition, purr. Mom and dad made a one-night trip to see Kaori-san or こがしわかおり, Ms. Kogashiwa, Kaori. She is one of mom’s best friends from her high school days. Another was held in 神保町, Tokyo where mom also visited and brought a lovely girl to home on Monday. She told me other two would join us soon to celebrate Christmas together. Purr … purrr …
