Lunar September starts from today, meaning 朔 at night. Mei-Shun dropped in the nearest shrine on the way to home after dancing with Princess Maria. She drew two omikuji lots as usual, one for Shin and the other for herself. Here is the result; 小吉 meaning a little lucky, while 末吉 the least. Since the latter says travel would not be good, she bound it beside 狛犬 N-chan wishing his/her protection.

Full of Flower

Standard

萩=hagi, Japanese bush clover in our garden began to bloom. Yes, it represents current season getting cooler day bay day. While Mei-Shun stays outdoors with horseies, wind gives gentler touch on her cheeks after 15 : 00 even under sunlight. And we have 重陽の節句, chrysanthemum festival today before 仲秋の名月, the best full moon tomorrow. Now is night tea time for her who saw nice numbers on a scale again.

Still Summer

Standard

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.

Smile in Sky

Standard

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.

家守

Standard

Lunar July starts from today. So Ms. Piano, could you join Mei-Shun to sing scores honoring that gentle lady who stays behind dark sky tonight? By the way, “gecko” sounds like her light in our language. He/She might therefore mean the same appearing on a kitchen window from a few days before. Thanks a million for your protection — we hope our brightness indoors helps to serve you enough dinner.

Fluffy Friends

Standard

Hi Tora-chan, thanks to welcome Mei-Shun back home. Listen, she meant to enjoy dancing with a horsey today when a shower stopped before noon. However, it started again while she was heading toward the club on Ms. Scarlet accompanied by little Mikan-chan. What happened on a scale after Monday is therefore unknown. Ms. Full Moon would not be seen at night either.

新月=朔

Standard

Lunar June starts from today, that means the best to visit the nearest shrine. Mei-Shun dropped in there after driving Shin to the station, greeted Gods and drew omikuji lots. Hmm, 末吉=sue-kichi and 小吉=sho-kichi combination looks a bit sad, please let her do once more on behalf of Mikan-chan. Yes, 大吉 has come from you, thanks a million for protecting dad and mom.

Big Baby

Standard

Hi, Mr. Happy Crescent, great to dance with you today for the first time. Still a boy at several years old, Mei-Shun quite likes his power, would like to control it. And the same to yours, Ms. Nuts, who helped her training in a class for 4th-grade aspirants. It seems similar to 名取 which beloved Master Mei-Shu always called an entrance. So there are 2 of it where this dancer/rider stands.

Moon or Rain

Standard

Happy birthday, elder sister. Mei-Shun met her yesterday, for the first time in amazing 3 years hit by that still “novel” coronavirus. She looked fine, replied that 佃煮=tsukuda-ni, fish and shrimp from 霞ヶ浦 Lake simmered in sake, soy sauce and sugar until half-dried, would be preferred as a gift to peanut crackers. All right, it would be delivered ASAP. Now Ms. Piano, which of above shall we sing tonight?

Double D’s?

Standard

Lunar May starts from today. Mei-Shun dropped in above shrine, after driving Shin toward the nearest station, to make a wish to Gods while draw omikuji lots. She is quite busy this morning — appointment with her home dentist Dr. M follows at 10 : 15, with Ame-chan on her lower left jaw fell from a real molar just yesterday. A dermatologist is also expected to see her if she could reach his clinic in time.
