Rain and thunder. Mmmmm. And I'm about to go to bed. Love being in bed with a thunderstorm going.

Not Isabel yet, though.



SHOU

meaning: prize, praise
賞品 == shouhin == prize
一等賞 == ittoushou == first prize, blue ribbon


The bottom radical is 'shell' (貝), here meaning 'money' or other valuable item. Right radical is a variant of 'furthermore' (尚), acting phonetically to express 'bestow'. Thus this character means 'bestow valuable item'. Henshall suggests as a mnemonic: 'Furthermore, shells are prizes.'
