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?

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.

Meow-Meow

… and meow, great to greet you kind followers again. I finished growing a pair of wings on my back last week, at a sobbing night of 小望月=ko-mochi-tsuki or 幾望=kibo. Sorry for mom’s absent from here, caused by deep hurts both to body and mind. From now on, it would be my and her pleasure to resume informing you on my breed, dance, piano and our happy life together.

五月雨?

Standard

It seems too soon for us to enter rainy season in May, yet this week saw such weather. Mei-Shun was forced to cancel reservations at her horsey riding club on Monday and today. Well, it is your turn, Ms. Piano, to play with her instead of Princess Maria and others. Wishing a full moon at Sunday night, let’s sing her scores composed by Master Debussy and Beethoven as usual.

Sweet Sunlight

Standard

Lunar April started. Solar May 1st was 朔日 with a new moon while the 2nd crescent expected tonight. Mei-Shun was happy to hang futon mats and blankets outdoors — rainfall prevented her from doing it yesterday, so hourly looking up the sky to check weather did not matter. Oh, white flowers of 姫空木 are shining under Momo-chan whose little fruits let her 4th mom feel delight.

Balanced Banana

Standard

Mei-Shun found this fruit in a box of foods delivered every week. One of them is so much in a right line that a cold paper bottle was put directly onto it. She was worried if they got injured frozen, yet seem all right. Their color reminds her of a crescent in recent early morning, lay on a bed of fluffy clouds. It was not clear enough to see such a charming sight today, while called 花曇り with cherry blossom here and there.

Cute Citruses

Standard

Ms. Full Moon, mom misses you so much tonight full of your teardrops. Please stop weeping, she is always ready to sing your scores with Ms. Piano and me. By the way, do  you like these cushions in my color and cousin of mine called yuzu? They help me to get on the sofa, arranged by mom who chose machine-washable ones while normal coverings. ” … to avoid accidents,” she said.

Full of Flower

Standard

11 years have passed since we experienced an enormous disaster. Mei-Shun offered a moment of silent prayer at home with Mikan-chan and Ms. Piano. It was freezing both in body and mind at that time, while warm enough to feel like in the middle of spring today. Backyard plum trees gives a lot of white, round petals followed by ones in bright pink. A lemon moon began to shine high in the sky.
