Wednesday - Hot and sunny
A lovely day until the end.
I got up and did my usual stuff around the apartment. I had a slight departure though. I made chip dip. Two kinds! The story…during Golden Week, F bought us a huge bag of chips in Aomori. I honestly told him not to do it, but he insisted. Then, he kept wanting to open it for the next few weeks. I wanted to put off consumption as long as possible. I was half hoping we’d be invited to a party so we could share them! Anyway, we decided last night that we would open the bag today. I made some chip dips to go with them. I put the bowls in the fridge to let the flavours come though.
In the afternoon I went out. I wanted to see if I could get my hair cut, and I could. It’s really short now, but I love it. I had left it too long since my last cut and my hair was totally shapeless and flyaway. Now, it’s just cute!
After I left the salon, I went to the mall and had a sandwich and glass of tea. I also checked out the bargain bin of the grocery store and found some rhubarb compote on sale. Woot. I grabbed one jar.
I expected F to phone me at any minute, but he didn’t. I biked home and there he was! He said he’d just got home a few minutes before me.
I cooked dinner tonight and it was okay. We had snap peas with mint and onion, salad and basil chicken. F did the dishes and after dinner he watched a bunch of Japanese TV. There wasn’t too much on for me anyway, so I didn’t fuss.
We had some of the chips and some of the dip. They weren’t bad. I think I should maybe add a little wasabi to one of the dips to give it a bit of oomph. I’m odd that way! F liked the dips. Yay.
He had an early night. I finished crocheting the main part of the baby blanket I’m working on, then started on the tedious job of darning in the ends. I did crochet some of them in, so hopefully it won’t take too long. I watched the episode of Grey’s Anatomy that was on, it was a crossover episode with Private Practice.
F went to bed while I watched the last part of the documentary on the Queen. I’m surprised, but very glad that NHK ran all three parts of it. F watched it yesterday and we talked about the differences between the British Monarch and the Japanese Emperor. There are quite a few.
And then I went on Facebook and found out that an old friend from college has just gone into hospice. We haven’t kept in touch beyond the odd “hi” on Facebook although I knew he had been ill.
That’s it for me. Night.
