Step by Step

Standard

Or should Mei-Shun call it finger by finger? To tell the truth, she practiced passing the 3rd page of that piece by Master J. S. Bach until recently, where sharp position changes from F key to G. It results in more mistakes than other pages, forced her to make special workout in hands for such “difficult” part. It is like she feels a kind of tense in gallop on horseies; she has only to augment experience for progress.

Joy? of Diet

Standard

So February has seen Mei-Shun spoil herself. According to results of health check (including physical measurement) conducted at the end of last month, she is healthy on the whole, yet has a slight tyre around lower body. Well, absolutely. Even if staying within the borderline, she has never reached the ideal weight calculated by BMI for a decade.

You are slender under a fluffy coat, honey.

 

Early Spring

Standard

Mei-Shun’s route to the nearest shrine shows clearly which season walks with her. Current one sees veronica persica and plums; blue, white and pink bloom more and more day by day. Yet oops, she drew 凶=kyo, unlucky omikuji lot. Dear flowers, 狛犬 couple and moon-window lanterns, please give your merciful sympathy to this a bit plump dieter.

New Faces

Standard

Mei-Shun feels so happy to welcome them into her kitchen; new refrigerator and dish washer. The former came to her at night, while the latter in the morning. On the other hand, her laundry machine and refrigerator are in cool champagne-gold, from P company. Since purchased via internet, they force her to read explanation brochures carefully — that is one of jobs she hesitates to do.

Candy Comes

Standard

… soon toward Mei-Shun’s upper left jaw. Yes, a kind of Christmas gift from Shin. She met Dr. M, her first home dentist today to replace late Ame-chan by an artificial one. Since they do not make it by themselves but just order, shape and size were measured with cold gum stuff, pressed onto the space where that milky girl lived before. Be brave, it never hurts. Simply takes 3 minutes keeping patient’s mouth open to dry.

3rd Moon

Standard

Mei-Shun would miss that beautiful crescent tonight. Between quiet rainfall, she walked to the nearest shrine and drew two 吉=kichi, lucky omikuji lots for Shin and herself. Actually it was末吉=sue-kichi, the least lucky for the husband while凶=kyo, the worst luck for the wife yesterday. On 9th, 朔日=the first of lunar September, she could not greet Gods: doors were closed, lot box was put away.

Thanks a million for saving bad lucks.

Turn Right

Standard

Mei-Shun has taken lessons on horseies going counterclockwise for over a whole year. Maybe because of it, she feels somehow weird within left groin these days. Earnest practice is important, yet too much could be pernicious. That seems to resemble typhoons which revolve ever-to-the-left, often give violent downpour rather than expected watering. So she asked Ms. I for good balance in a private, clockwise curriculum.
