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!

Luckly, Yuki bought the last sheet at a book store. On the other hand our neighbors didn't have sucha sheet. So we wathced it in turn using one sheet. We seldom talk with neighbors, so I was so glad to share the wonderful time with them. Additionaly I didn't have tnough time to watch it carefully.

I think we weren't able to see the eclipse here well anyway. On the TV and in newspapers they showed the best area in Japan and we were outside it. I would have loved to have seen it. I enjoyed reading about it on your blog!
