Tuesday - Hot and sunny. A little cloudy but no rain in the daytime.
A good day. I’m afraid I overslept a bit this morning. Just couldn’t drag my sorry self out of bed. However, there was news, so I watched that on tape, then channel surfed and found a great little movie on WOWOW. It was called The Visitor and it was a gem. I only saw the last 3/4 of it, so I’d really like to see it again from the beginning. It was about a man who comes back to his New York apartment to find 2 people living in it. They are illegal aliens. As I missed the first part, I don’t exactly know what transpired, but the man ended up being taught how to play the African drum by one of the people. I know that the actor playing the lead, Richard Jenkins was nominated for a Best Actor Oscar. He didn’t get it, but I can see why he was in that category. It was a really good film, about the realities of life in the US.
I had to wait until the film was over before I showered, so it was a bit late. I did a few other things around the apartment and then spent some time on my computer.
In the afternoon, I made my lunch a little early. I had scrambled egg in a wrap with cheese and ham, plus the leftover potato as a potato pancake. Yum. I left for work at 4 pm.
I stopped off at the drugstore and had a snoop around. I picked up a few things and then went on to my school. It was a horrid 31 degrees in there, so I got it cooled down as quickly as possible.
I vacuumed my school today, did a bit of dusting, then changed and waited for my student. And waited. 10 minutes after her lesson I called her, but didn’t get an answer. She never did come. She’s always been really good about calling when she’s busy, so I hope there’s nothing wrong. I’ll email her tomorrow.
I knew that F was supposed to work late so I didn’t call him. I did some fun things at my school like read the last 3 newspapers and do the Sunday puzzle. Finally, around 9 pm I started to get bored, so I texted him to see if he was still working.
He called me back and said he was finished. Apparently had been since 7 pm. Kind of GRRR. In the apartment I keep an updated schedule of my classes and it’s usually fine to call me when the classes are done. It’s when he calls me during or just before class that I get upset.
Anyway, he picked me up and we had a cheap and cheerful dinner at New York, New York. I had chicken and F had a rice dish.
We came home and watched the first audition episode of American Idol Season 9. I know it’s finished in the US and I don’t care! It was funny how some people had no idea how terrible they are.
So, that was my day. It was okay really. Tomorrow I’m off work again, but I have a lot of things I’d like to do. I want to redo my shelves in the kitchen and maybe wrap those darn presents to send!
Wish me luck. Talk to you tomorrow night? Later, eh!
