Doll Festival

Standard

This is for girls, maybe set to be the counterpart of Children’s Day celebrated mainly for boys on May 5th. Both of them are days of sweets as well, since hina-arare, rice puffs coated with frosty sugar are served on the former while kashiwa-mochi, rice cakes wrapping red bean-paste balls on the latter. For Shin and Mei-Shun, lovely frog faces joined — souvenir from Nagoya.

Five Years

Standard

… have passed since Mei-Shun had that operation. She has always been grateful to healthy days so far; praising, holding and taking care of Mikan-chan, playing Ms. Piano, dancing kabuki dance while with horsey. And she would from now on of course. It seems not necessary to increase the number of what she finds happy. The more her passion is poured, the bigger pleasure they give.

Hi, I’m Silk Traveler.

Happy to sniff U.

Greeting Green

Standard

Hello Mr. Tea Time, looking so cute as usual, while a hair accessory on your forehead lost one of rhinestones. It would be a great pleasure of Mei-Shun to change it into another already prepared. Listen, Antwerp, the city of jewelry, brought her the best choice of emerald ring via Shin. Their couple of clear and green gemstones would therefore wait a bit more to become a pair of earrings.

Who’s foot is below right?

Acknowledgement

Standard

It is my great pleasure to inform you kind followers on a little accomplishment. Mom and I saw 222 of you the other day. We had wished to see it before 22nd of this month, Day of Cat for fanciers in our country. However, we reached that happy point much earlier. With our next goal 333, we would serve you better site by making efforts for improvement.

Dry Promptly

Standard

Here are pink roses Shin gave Mei-Shun on her birthday. Beauty lasts short — it is very difficult to keep them fresh. One week seems to be the limit to let them stay on soaked sponge, from her experience. She should not hesitate to pull them out of the silver pot. If hung upside-down in time, they would not so much change both in shape and color. Returning to the throne, their longer life of princess starts.

Kikunoe Lasts

Standard

Mei-Shun is currently giving lessons to Professor M in 梅の栄=ume-no-sakae, Prosperity like Plum Blossom. It was designated as the score for 名取 examination before she started her own lessons under the wings of Master Mei-Shu a decade before. Also the first performance on a stage, it reminds her of fresh days learning what kabuki dance is.

Welcome Back

Standard

It stopped raining by noon. Dad’s three-night business trip to Shanghai ended, he gave mom a phone call from Narita Airport. She smiles like gentle sunlight coming through thin clouds, purr. They enjoyed tea time on a cup of coffee and … meow? Are you going out again, daddy? Such a hard worker needs to charge himself with our love and hospitality at home.
