Imagine Africa

Standard

Professor M returned from South Africa on business, gave Mei-Shun a fine souvenir; a box of rooibos tea, Shin’s favorite. He takes as much as 2 bottles of 2 liters a day in summer, makes his wife to boil it in a designated kettle three times every hot day. Now fragrant olive began to give nice scent, a messenger to inform us on advent of the comfortable season.

Welcome, Butterfly

Standard

Oh, there you are. When Mei-Shun tried to move one of grapefruit pots to avoid strong sunlight from the west, she found something different among green leaves. It is so nice to see you grown up enough; clear to recognize your mother. And oh, not only you but another bigger! Well, it seems quite difficult to feed you both here. Why don’t one of you make a little travel to other place?

Double Shocks

Standard

2018 summer has let a lot of typhoons make landfall on the Japanese archipelago. Although we have 処暑=shosho, the 2nd of autumn 二十四節気 today, both Soulik and Cimaron hit western part of our country with heat wave follows. Partly thanks to the bigger latter, Mei-Shun enjoyed riding on Maria-chan’s back in cool shadow of woods where our club constructed another lesson field.

7-5-3 Method

Standard

A weather forecaster talked about it the other day. That does not mean our celebration for children’s growth but distance to a rain front which brings current season on Japanese Archipelago except for Hokkaido. When it stays 700km away from Tokyo area, we could see the sun. If it comes up to 500km, it would be cloudy. And pressed above to 300km or nearer than 八丈島 Island, it would bring rainfall.

Humid & Heavy

Standard

Hi, are you alone? Where is your wife and children? Oh, if you are female, please kindly take Mei-Shun’s deep apology. She was shocked after seeing you when one of cherry trees in the nearest garden of Gods found torn in trunk, fallen on the ground. Such sight hurts her mind, while moss on the surface looks so fresh that it let her understand a puddle behind is not made of teardrops.

See U Again

Standard

She finished blooming, made up a fluffy seed ball. Mei-Shun admires this little and strong life, hopes to see her surrounded by children next year. Such idea reminds her of the BGM aired in a beauty salon. Mr. H, her hairdresser who often puts on nice T-shirts, hinted Charlie Puth whose hit tune has been used by a lovely figure skater, yet she could not recognize his voice in another song.

Birdy Buddy

Standard

Freezing wind makes 乙戸沼 Pond surface ruffle, while Mei-Shun found wild ducks come down to southern side this morning. After 立春=risshun, the first of spring 二十四節気 on Sunday, ice might have become thinner and smaller here. Hello, thanks to swim friendly to her, yet she does not have anything good for you. It is prohibited to feed you wild lives. This cormorant couple is cleverer to know it.
