Violet Velvet

Standard

Here is Princess Cymby with two bouquets. Mei-Shun feels really happy to see them grow day by day, while elder one already has a bud change into yellow from green. You take nearly a whole month to bloom, honey, who remind her of a decade before — sister Kasumi, another 名取 student of beloved Master Mei-Shu, kindly gave you to her after performing 島の千歳.

Creative Condition

Standard

Real winter has come, or at least Mei-Shun and her family feel so these several days. Ms. Scarlet is frozen on all windows when she drives Shin to the nearest station, let the wife rush to the bathtub for warm water. However, 霜柱=frost needle plants appear in her mother’s garden thanks to such low temperature. Fallen petals of camellia sasanqua give a chic carpet.

Mild Marine

Standard

Here comes a new kettle to serve Mei-Shun. Among various coloring for this product, she took above the best. Shin also chose it by chance, when his wife offered images on Internet. Named “seabed”, it shows the maximum level of water: one-finger below spout. Well, is it similar to Ms. Iron? If so, it might be this careless user who broke that diligent predecessor.

Clear Color

Standard

Mom cleaned up rooms yesterday to draw Mr. Blue from 押入れ=Japanese-style closet again, purr. Since it is said to be freezing in December, she decided to get him ready for dad who is more sensitive to such weather than me. Another news came to her exultation: a sumo wrestler she likes will return to a 関取=seki-tori, up into 十両 rank after a whole year.

Joy of Pottery: 2

Standard

Mei-Shun had craved to gain two teapots; one for Japanese green, the other for reddish leaves. She found the latter shown above left, at a 300-yen shop whose design is quite nice, while not so suitable to make green tea. The former right, took more than a month to see at 益子, 15 times in price. Such difference does not matter to her: each of them has respective role.

Cock’s Comb

Standard

Solar November, while the last nine weeks of 2022 starts with 大安=tai-an, the best day in 六曜. Oh, the 1st of lunar months are fixed, like latest October 25 was 仏滅=butsu-metsu, the worst. It is always exciting for Mei-Shun to learn novel matters. Do you agree with her, Ms. Piano? She made an appointment to tune you soon, by a new person this time.

Mei-Shun is a green tea lover: she enjoys it almost every day, all through the year. Now are cans of her favorite leaves going empty while tablets, balls and bags of Chinese tea arrived. Here are excellent breeds to replenish a couple of pottery from Hong Kong stored in a cupboard for decades. Hello, great to see you two again. Shall we enjoy a full moon tonight together?

Reverent Regards

Standard

Yuko-san, one of Mei-Shun’s best friends since high school, kindly sent the latter a brilliant gift. Preserved roses greeting from a tiny white piano are in a transparent box. Here is your little sister, Ms. Piano. Now you are full of pink items including her, a face-cloth used as Mikan-chan’s cushion on Ms. Scarlet, dried roses for Shin and a big cotton scarf from Professor M.

Golden Gear

Standard

Here is Mei-Shun’s new vacuum cleaner. Named “Ms. Harp” from her color and shape, she would be the best partner for above owner to clean carpets and wooden floor. Oh, how light you are in main body while normal tube and head. Please say hello to Ms. Piano. You two are among Tora-chan’s four kittens who live with a couple in Tsukuba — oops, Piano was a boy.

Good Girl

Standard

Mei-Shun noticed エノコログサ, setaria viridis grown beside lady’s tresses whose sofa is put on the eastern verandah floor. When she closed a shutter of Shin’s study, one of ears tried to enter. She once refused, yet gave up soon and let it in. Only a night made it turn from bright green to pale. The husband said that it is because Mikan-chan played with it by punch, bite, etc.
