Wednesday - Thunder and rain in the am, hot and sunny for the rest of the day.
I went to bed late last night so had a bit of trouble getting out of bed this morning. I was awake though. Mother Nature saw to that with her torrential rainstorm and thunder at 8:45 or so.
I got up and there was news on. Hurray! I watched it, and did a few things on the internet. I even vacuumed! I watched Hustle from last night and then went out for a bit. I had errands to run.
I went to the post office where I mailed off a birthday card to a friend, paid for my books for my school, and made a deposit of coins to my account. I talked to F tonight about using the coins from his coin jars to pay for our anniversary dinner. He seems to like the idea.
After that, I walked across the street to the bank and donated a lot of pop bottle lids. They have a big collection bin. Unfortunately the bin didn’t have a liftable lid, just a small hole in the front, so I had to keep feeding the bottle caps in one by one. We had a huge bag of them and I kept dropping them. The doors in the bank lobby are sensor driven so every time that I picked up a cap, the doors opened! Ack. When I finished that, I made some deposits into my school’s account. I wanted to get rid of the accumulated coin from my school too, so I dumped it into the ATM. I wasn’t completely sure it would work, but it did. Yay. My backpack was now considerably lighter!
I hummed and hawed about going to the grocery store and buying stuff for dinner or going to the convenience store and buying munchies for me. Convenience store won and I bought a few things and went home.
It was a lovely day out. Very hot and sunny, but there was a bit of a breeze too, so it wasn’t too bad.
Back at home I watched the weekend’s Medium and ate lunch and watched TV for a while. F came home a bit late today, around 6:30.
When he came home, I asked if he’d take me to the post office to pick up my parcels, so he did. It was a bit hard to find parking so he dropped me off and went to the other side to park. I got my parcels, and then F helped me carry them to the car.
I asked if he’d rather go out for dinner or go to the supermarket to buy something. I was thinking of getting something along the lines of roast beef and doing sandwiches, but he suggested a restaurant. Then agreed to supermarket. Then, halfway to the store suggested a restaurant. We went to the Daiichi Hotel and had Yamagata Beef. It was very nice and we actually had a nice discussion…a conversation if you will.
We came home and had a quiet evening for a bit. After a while I put on American Idol and we watched the first bit of it together, then F took his bath and then went to bed. I worked on my crochet and when I ran out of wool, I unwound some from my frogged project. I got it horribly tangled and it took ages to sort it all out. Tomorrow, or whenever I have time, I’ll roll it into a proper ball.
And that’s about it for today for me. I’ve had a good day. Tomorrow I’ll be a little more busy. Wish me luck! Night.
