今週はお稽古の日に雨が降りました。着物のときに雨が降るとしんどいです。。。
This week it rained on a lesson day.  It makes things difficult when it rains and you are wearing a kimono….

先週に引き続き茶筅飾り(習事)が行われましたが、今週はMさんとKさんの番です。おいしいお濃茶を点てていただきました。Tさんは丸卓で薄茶のお点前を二飾りから始め、総飾りでしまいました。AさんとSさんも丸卓で薄茶のお点前をしましたが、Sさんは総飾りから始め二飾りでしまい、Aさんは二飾りで始め二飾りでしまいました。
Just like last week we did chasen-kazari (nara’igoto) – but it is Mr. M’s and Mr. K’s turn.  Their ko’icha was delicious.  Mr. T started his usucha otema’e using marujoku from nikazari (“Display Mode 2”) and finished with so’ukazai (“Full Display”).  Ms. A and Ms. S also did usucha otema’e with the marujoku: Ms. S starting from so’ukazai and finishing with nikazari, and Ms. A starting from nikazari and finishing with nikazari.

12月7日の朝Sさんのお友達のJさんが見学にいらっしゃいました。お茶をされた経験はあまりないとのことですが、ハワイ出身日系人の方で現在大学にて日本語を副専攻とのこともあり日本語でのご挨拶を自然な感じで復唱されてました。
In the morning of Dec. 7, Ms. J, a friend of Ms. S, came to observe our class.  I heard that she had not had much previous tea ceremony experience, but maybe because she is a Japanese American from Hawaii, or because she is minoring in Japanese, her recitation of tea greetings sounded quite natural.

ところで、丸卓の底板には足が3つあり、炉・風炉と季節で向きが変わるとのことです。炉の季節は1つ足が手前になりますが、風炉の季節は風炉の1つ足が手前に来るので、変化をつける為丸卓は足2つを手前にするそうです。
By the way, marujoku has 3 feet at the bottom, and we were told that the direction changes depending on the season: ro and furo.  In the ro season, the single foot is facing the front, but in the furo season, the 2 feet come to the front to avoid doing the same thing with the furo, which has the single leg facing the front.

今週使われた水指は、生徒のKさんのお手製です。とても器用な方で共蓋もピッタリしまる上等なできです。運びで使ってもカタカタ音がしたりしません。素晴しい。。。
One of our students, Mr. K. made this week’s mizusashi.  He is very skilled and the ceramic lid sits perfectly in the opening of the mizusashi.  Even when used in hakobi otema’e, it does not make any chattering noise.  Awesome….
