Sunny, and warmer.
Today was a busy day. Really. I didn't sit at my computer much at all today. It had a strange and sad event halfway through as well. Read on...
Got up this morning and watched the news. Hurray. I just wish it was good news, but at least I saw it. After a brief bit on my computer I got dressed and headed out. First I hit up the grocery store for more food for dinner, then I visited a new bakery. I didn't get free goodies like last time, but the lady did offer me tastes of some of the breads there. The last one she gave me as I was paying was really yummy. It was a kind of cheese bread, and it tasted like real cheese! Might have to go back for that one.
When I came home I showered and then got busy in the kitchen. I was planning to make dinner tonight in my slow cooker. I'd bought a packet of seasoning in Canada so I was going to have Italian herb chicken. I prepped everything, threw it in the slow cooker, and forgot about it.
Before I had gone out, I had started a load of laundry, so I spent the rest of the afternoon cooking and doing laundry. I also had to put away a bunch of clean clothes too.
I spent a bit of time on my computer finally, then made my lunch. After that, I headed out to the school. I stopped at the drug store on the way.
When I was changing in the school, and doing my set up, it happened. I took my rings off and I dropped my engagement ring. When I picked it up again I noticed it looked funny. I looked closer and realized that the amethyst had broken. A big chunk of my stone had fallen off. ACK. I couldn't find the missing piece. I was really upset. I think I've written before about how much I love having an amethyst ring rather than a diamond.
My class went well tonight. The student needs a bit of help with his reading I think. I may have to try and do some remedial work with him. He's really not bad these days though.
I called Fumihiko and asked him to come and get me. I told him what happened with my ring and I apologized. He borrowed it from me. He didn't seem to be angry about it. It was an accident and I feel terrible about it.
We came home and I got the rest of dinner underway. I boiled some penne, sauteed some broccolini, set the table, you name it. Oh, F did make coffee, so that was nice. The only problem was when we were eating. He was also watching some sort of championship baseball game, so I think I could have given him sawdust and he'd have eaten in. In a break he did say to me that dinner was good, so he was sort of forgiven, but gah! If I'd known there was baseball on tonight I would have gone out for dinner!
After the game (and the next show) F did the dishes while I got on line. Around 11 we snuggled up on the couch to watch American Idol. It was pretty much like I remembered the first time. I did more crochet, which was relaxing.
And that was my day. It was good, but a bit sad what with my ring. Oh, I received a bookmooch today too, from Slovenia. Isn't that cool?
