Pads and Paws

Standard

Purr, I’m back to mom’s arms in 9 flowers and 20 buds of Princess Cymby. Total 29 sounds like 肉球=niku-kyu, one of our millions of charming points when 9 added to the tail, quite makes sense by my action. “Yes, you are always perfect”, she says. “We had lunar 2023 start from yesterday when you gave 9th flower in early morning. Dad is also delighted with you, our sweetest hearts”.

花鳥風月

Standard

Ms. Piano, what new shall you and Mei-Shun do this year? Since it has been raining for recent several days, moonlight scores were picked up a lot. Rain and snow falls are featured by Masters Chopin and Debussy, chosen for fine weather. Her repertoire therefore covers 照る日も降る日も=both clear and wet days. How about adding windy one? Oh, she already learned “Nausicaä“.

Dear Depart

Standard

Mei-Shun went out on Ms. Scarlet this morning to see Dr. M, her home dentist for the first time this year. Since there would be no pain, she was relaxed when sat on an automatic chair. Her bed of Ame-chan looks all right, yet still has a kind of hole. Oh, beautiful 臥待月, she is ready to go into dry futon having a good bath. See you in 更待月 tomorrow night.

Day for Dance?

Standard

We have 小寒=shokan, the 5th of winter 二十四節気 today. It means the beginning of 寒=the coldest season of the year, while almost no wind, sunny enough for Mei-Shun to walk to a nearby hair salon without gloves before noon. Expecting 小望月=komochi-tsuki or 幾望=kibo at night, she cleaned up rooms in the morning to put on the 1st kimono in 2023.

Eventful Excursion

Standard

Meow, lunar December starts from today. Mom brought me to a hair salon nearby Tokyo Station for her last cut and fringe making in 2022. Oh, cold wind let us see Mt. Fuji beyond Ushiku Pond. A cup noodles maker looked fine, so was Skytree tower. We were pleased with this tiny travel followed by shopping at a department store. And we cordially wish you kind 485 followers Merry Christmas on weekend!

Hi, tiny friend, great to see you again — yet all right? Mei-Shun has taken it normal that your species would sleep in winter until it gets warmer. Or you might stay indoors from the time of birth, had no chance to learn how to hibernate. She hopes that you will grow enough here to lead a comfortable life even outdoors. By the way, did you see that beautiful 二十六夜 crescent early this morning?

Bright Light

Standard

It has become a bit difficult for Mei-Shun to see a moon at home through the widest window facing the south. Instead, a glass door toward the east let her find its silhouette when she prepares to take a bath around 21 : 00. And it was early in this morning that Shin and his wife were welcomed by a clear 居待月, a moon to wait sitting above the nearest station.

Nicer Numbers

Standard

We have today a full moon or 十五夜, the one at 15th night on lunar November 15th, while 七五三=7-, 5- and 3-year-old celebration. Mei-Shun takes such a coincidence somehow mysterious — only odd numbers gather on a solar date of an even number. By the way, Shin kindly handed her a box of くろ玉=sweet black balls yesterday. And oh, where have 2 of them already gone?

Graceful Gingko

Standard

So lunar November starts from today, meaning a new moon at night. Mei-Shun was too busy in the morning to visit and make a wish at the nearest shrine, rushed out for horsey riding in the afternoon. Caused by a heavy rainfall yesterday, club field was so muddy that she made a poor performance on Ms. Melody. Good news came after coming back home — she saw nice numbers on a scale again.

Elegant Eclipse

Standard

Mom told me that we would see a full moon tonight. “Yet in all different facade from normal”, she continued. “It gets slimmer little by little before staying behind the shadow of Mother Earth for an hour and a half”. And Uranus also hides at the rear of above dark moon, gives amazing phenomena after 442 years. By the way, I prefer brighter one looks like a spoonful of my milk, purr.
