Lunar Spring

Standard

So it is March 1st on our older calendar. Mei-Shun walked to the nearest shrine in the morning to greet Gods and draw omikuji lots. They gave both Shin and his wife 末吉, a little lucky with advice to be cautious in health for the former while to harmful people for the latter. On the way to home, blue flowers including wisteria and iris surprised her in almost 70-80% blossom.

Welcome Back

Standard

Dear Mr. Diamond, we have been looking forward to seeing you again: it took as long as two months to make you up. Mei-Shun’s late father, the previous owner would be pleased as well. And do you know, it is the last day of lunar January today. Shall we go to the nearest shrine tomorrow to make a wish on the best day? White plum trees are in full bloom there, while cherry trees grew buds from pale yellow to red.

Caps and Hats

Standard

… are among fashion items Mei-Shun loves. She found today a cute knit with a sale tag of half price! All right, since tomorrow is her lunar birthday, you would be her gift purchased by herself. And oh, you carry the same tag as well? She would like to bring both of you home. Such an exciting shopping after a tiny operation actually. Good bye, an atheroma in her left ear.

Moon in Coffee

Standard

Lunar 2018 starts from today. Mei-Shun visited the nearest shrine for the second New-Year greeting to Gods while prayed them for good health of her family. Since that includes successful diet for herself as well, she felt reservation at a hair salon on this date would promise a fortunate result. Following cute cup and saucer was served there, 5 minutes from her home.

Looking Spring

Standard

Mei-Shun made a phone call to a master of 坂東流=Bando-Ryu, who has shared the stage in Tsuchiura City Hall with Kikunoe-Ryu. Actually, she planned to join the former party’s performance in Tokyo in April, yet had to give it up because of her master’s sickness. It is deeply wished last night’s super-blue-red moon would represent her recovery and contact soon.

Dentist Anew

Standard

Since Mei-Shun caught a cold after a dental care in November, follow-up treatment could not have been given so far. She therefore meant to see Dr. M today, yet instead a friendly hygienist checked before cleaning her teeth. No problem was found on them, while a piece of advice to masticate equally on both side. Thanks a lot, see you next month — oh? Clearer image of Mt. Tsukuba is here.

 

Snowy Messenger

Standard

Here is Mr. Snowman I by mom-in-law. He was born on Tuesday, keeps his style in a white coat with a cabbage hat on his blue hair. He lives next to our post box, kindly observes paper delivery service. Thanks to him, Mei-Shun learned this morning that one of Tokyo Metro lines plans to give users classical music aboard. Debussy’s “Clair de Lune” is on the top of examples.
