Monday - Sunny and warm
A good day.
I didn’t get up this morning to watch the eclipse. We hadn’t bought any of the special glasses to view it safely, so I made the executive decision to skip it and sleep in instead. So, that’s what I did!
I got up this morning and watched a bit of TV. I chilled out, relaxed and enjoyed myself. I moved my computer over to F’s usual spot on the chesterfield and tried scanning some postcards. I got it to work fairly easily after only a little while. Yay me.
F phoned home to see if there was anything he could pick up from the Kaldi’s in Yamagata. I gave him a couple of ideas, and asked if I should take his postcards to the post office with mine. He said yes.
After my lunch I biked off to the post office. I made a quick trip and then came home. At our apartment building I dropped off my bag, then swept the lobby. I started upstairs and swept the whole thing. This place gets so dusty, I can hardly believe it. Still, it did look rather good when I was done.
F came home a little later and we had a nice reunion. We had each received a postcard today (see mine below) so we spent a few minutes on our computers registering the cards or scanning them. I showed F a few things I’d learned about the scanner.
We had dinner tonight at Cafe Framboise. F had his usual Japanese set meal and I had minute steak. We both enjoyed our meals. One unusual thing that happened was I got a call during the meal from a student. Sadly, she was cancelling her lessons for the next couple of weeks. She is a very busy lady.
F bought gas for the car after dinner, then we bought a few things at the grocery store for tonight’s dinner. I’m going to attempt cooking again.
We came home, and in a rare generous mood, I told F that there was boxing on, so he watched that for a while. I of course watched Medium and started the baby blanket I’m going to make. However, I decided that I would probably use too much yarn using the pattern that I was using, so I am re-thinking it all. I’ll likely use a more open pattern. It is summer after all. Or will be when I get it done!
That’s about it for tonight. F took a bath and has gone to bed. He wasn’t nearly as noisy tonight. It’s funny how much better we both are when we eat properly! Got to go. Night!
