Half Moon

Standard

Oh? What happened with a bang, one of speakers? Did you mean to inform Mei-Shun that we have 大寒=dai-kan, the 6th and last of winter 二十四節気 today? Or to let that pupa come out of your covering? She knew it fell into there months before, yet left it alone. Sorry and hi, nice to see you clearly again. One week has passed since she gained one more year old on the 1st of lunar December.

New Night

Standard

Lunar December starts from today, on birthday of Mei-Shun by chance. Please kindly let her make it as well a happy occasion to express her gratitude to you sweet followers. It seems to have surpassed 333, her latest goal.

Silhouette Sister

Standard

So 2020 has only 2 nights left, including a full moon tonight. It rained from early in the morning, made mom worry that she could not see it. To her great relief, drops and clouds have gone to supply slight sunlight around noon. Meow, there in the stairwell, I see a kitten staring at a bird above. Would you like my help? I’d love to if you let me share such a warm place. Purr … purrr …

Happy Hi

Standard

Mei-Shun went to see Dr. M for artificial Ame-chan, who looked hurt inside 2 weeks before. This sad patient was prescribed antibiotics to take at 3 serial nights, had no pain in mouth but in mind. Now her home dentist declared no problem, suggesting to watch it every 4 months of regular check-up. Oh, beautiful 3rd crescent floats in dark blue sky, attended by Jupiter and Saturn.

 

Fm Hill to Mt.

Standard

Lunar November starts from today. Mei-Shun meant to walk to the nearest shrine to greet Gods with the last 朔日 prayer of 2020 — yet oh, how stormy it has become! That immediately made her choose playing moonlight-related scores on Ms. Piano while cleaning of eastern verandah. Yes cleaning, rather than picking up those gingko leaves fallen on the floor.

Moon or Rain

Standard

Here a bushclover in our garden follows, going to yellow from green under Momo-chan already undressed. And backyard gingko finally started to do the same, perhaps helped by cold rain on Wednesday. Since the latter turns to a golden coat quite later than other trees, it makes Mei-Shun accept the fact that beautiful autumn would go soon. Ms. Piano, which do you prefer, Masters Debussy or Chopin tonight?

Joy of Moon

Standard

Lunar October started yesterday. Shin and Mei-Shun walked to the nearest shrine together, after an interval of longer than half an year, to make wishes respectively. The husband drew an omikuji lot of 凶=kyo, the worst luck while the wife 吉=kichi, lucky. Well, the latter also mentioned 大凶=dai-kyo, worse than 凶 if she would not improve anything bad right now. Two commandments must be taken to hearts.

Tricky Moons

Standard

Meow, I heard that tomorrow is the day of “trick or treat?”. Mom is not so much interested in it, while loves to give treats to young friends. They say a full moon will celebrate it as well, yet pretty quietly this year. She took several photos of it recently, including one on 20th from a train. I think her technique is poor, only when compared to my images of course, purr.

Green Moon

Standard

Mei-Shun went to see her home dentist today. There might be a X-ray photography this time, so earrings would be better to be clipped on, not pierced. Great to see you again, glistening cats. Could you be friendly enough to get in a chic car, descended from her beloved father? Oh, look at a lemon-shaped moon in the sky, like a young fruit through the windscreen with a bit blue shade.

Blanket Baby

Standard

Meow, mom told me that we would have a new moon tomorrow night. It means lunar September starts giving 朔日, the best day to make a wish to Gods. However, weather forecasts say rain might fall all day long. She therefore visited the nearest shrine by car in this morning, drew two omikuji lots. One was 大吉 or the luckiest for dad, the other 末吉 or the least lucky for herself.
