Sakura by Shin

Standard

Amazing 3 months have passed since Mei-Shun visited a hair salon nearby Tokyo Station at the end of last year. She makes it a rule to have a cut and treatment there, while dyeing at another 5-minute walk from home. However, the latter sometimes works as her bangs maker. Oh, this word is related to horsey tails? She was a girl often with a ponytail decades before.

Christmas Comes

Standard

Twice, since we have December 25th today on lunar calendar. Shin’s gift flowers to Mei-Shun on solar one are still fresh, leaving 2 buds of gorgeous white lilies. After taking care of them, pink ones and Mikan-chan of course, the wife went out toward the same hospital she should have visited on Tuesday. Prescription was indispensable to keep her digestive system well.

Saturday Soon

Standard

So Mei-Shun made the final visit to a hair salon, just a minute walk from home today. There the owner beautician had a lot of phone calls, mainly for reservation within 2021. She said December is the busiest, her schedule is already full. And we have Christmas/New Year’s Eves on Fridays, what a timing! However, it is tomorrow that is the most important for Shin and his wife.

Enjoyable Excursion

Standard

Mei-Shun went to a hair salon nearby Tokyo Station today. Rainfall from midnight stopped when she got on Ms. Scarlet. 牛久 Pond, Cup-noodle chimney and Skytree looked all fine. Her favorite beautician gave nice technique as usual, kindly guided her to purchase a bottle of Moroccan oil treatment. And oh, this building accommodating his shop displays a brilliant tree every year.

Flowers Flourish

Standard

Here is Mademoiselle Vert, growing a stalk day by day. Mei-Shun also found 蝋梅 in our garden hides some buds opening a little among still green leaves. She would like to display an image of the latter soon, while could not take any photo today — closed at home by stormy weather. Although we had 大雪=tai-setsu, the 3rd of winter 二十四節気 yesterday, it seems to be warmer than such snowing.

Warm Washing

Standard

Yes, rainfall did on Ms. Scarlet, our garden and Mei-Shun’s throat. It is nice to have a cold month begin by such mild weather, isn’t it? Well, well, that was her idea around midnight. This morning saw a roaring storm instead, made it dark like dusk. It gave a harsh shower on Shin and his wife when they got on the red car, with the latter eagerly curled her hair last night.

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.
