Croissant Cat

Standard

Meow, it is getting colder day by day. I sometimes feel too much freezed to stay alone on the sofa. Mom, come here and hold me on your legs, or I have to go into the restroom again. Only five minutes would be all right, since you always leave this blanket warm after sitting down on it. Oh, thanks a lot for spreading a piece of African cloth on me. So comfortable is my new bed. Purr … purrr …

3rd Crescent

Standard

Lunar September started from Sunday. Clear sky would therefore mean beautiful moonlight tonight, which Mei-Shun loves the most not because of its slim shape. She walked to the nearest shrine to greet Gods in the morning, drew omikuji lots for herself and Shin. The former was 末吉, a little lucky while the latter 吉, lucky. She knows the reason: they say she should have come earlier.

Full Moon

Standard

We are expecting 仲秋の名月, the best moon of the year tonight. However, clouds are so much spread in the sky that it looks very difficult to hold a party serving rice-cake balls for the gentle, bright figure. Mei-Shun feels sorry, yet autumn has just begun. Cicadas are still singing lively on sunny days, while cricket chorus is getting louder night by night.

Golden Horsey

Standard

Shin and Mei-Shun drove to a museum in 水戸 on weekend to see the crown trimmed with horse-shape metal beads found in 三昧塚 ancient grove. On the ground floor, you can enjoy putting on a replica set around a black cap. Another mock-up more similar to the real one is exhibited in a glass box upstairs, accompanied by a pair of earrings. Beautiful full moon, they shine just like you.

Crispy Chance

Standard

Lunar June starts from today. Clouds have been too thick to see the moon at night, yet it does not matter tonight. Mei-Shun feels lucky to have rainfall stop from yesterday afternoon, meant to walk but ride to the nearest shrine after 3-week respite. We have what current season is this year, that is all right. So she made a simple wish to Gods: please save us all on the Japanese archipelago.

Piano to Pizza

Standard

Stormy last Saturday forced Shin and Mei-Shun stay at home all day long, pressed appetite button in the husband’s brain. He asked the wife’s permission to order pizzas at night. Following sunny Sunday made him exhausted enough to rush to sushi dinner, took time from the wife to play piano. Oh, brilliant full moon accompanied by Jupiter, please help this couple to lose weight and gain muscle.

Go Cool

Standard

Lunar May starts from today. Chestnut trees are already in full bloom, giving sweet scent which let Mei-Shun feel coming rainy season. Rice paddy is growing enough to hide waterfowls among green stripes. Black Tea rose in our garden bloomed well this spring, with the last flower in autumnal shade. And Ms. Last One, here is a summer saddle pad for you.
