On the last day of the three-day weekend, my husband and I went to a cafe which I had wanted to visit. The owner of the cafe, who is also an owner of an antique shop, started the cafe so that more people would come. In the shop, there were a lot of furniture and tableware that the owner had selected carefully. It was really nice to spend time being surrounded by such things. Among the owner’s collection, a pair of cups caught my eyes immediately. One was scarlet and the other was a vivid emerald green. I liked the cups and talked with the owner about them for a while, but I couldn’t make up my mind about whether I really wanted them or not. Eventually, I left the cafe without having them, but I am still thinking of them. I wonder if they are still there.

3連休の最後の日に、以前から気になっていたカフェに夫と出かけてきました。骨董品屋のご主人が、もっと多くのお客さんに足を運んでもらえるようにとカフェを開いたのが始まりなのだそう。店内にはご主人があちこちから集めていらした家具や食器類が並んでいました。そんな思いのこもったものに囲まれて過ごすのは良いものですね。そんななか、一際私の目を引くものがありました。緋色と鮮やかなエメラルドグリーンのペアカップです。ご主人にそのカップについてお話は聞きましたが、結局踏ん切りがつかず、そのまま帰って来てしまいました。今でもずっとそのカップのことが気にかかります。もう誰かの手に渡ってしまったでしょうか。
