Tuesday - Hot and sunny
A good day, mostly.
Before I went to bed last night I got word from Canada that a friend of mine had lost his fight with cancer on Saturday. I knew that it was coming, but I was greatly saddened to hear the news. He was the kind of person who made a room more alive just by walking into it, a cheerful, happy man who exuded life. I will miss him.
This morning I overslept a tad, but got up anyway and showered. I spent a long time answering email and so I didn’t do any daytime crochet today. Part of the email that I received asked me to write another article for the Journal, so I did that, plus found a picture or two for the editor.
I meant to go out early, but didn’t. To honour my friend, I cranked a song on my computer and danced to it. I think he would have liked that. It was a song that had meaning for him at a certain point in his life, and since dancing was a big part of our college experience together, definitely worth it for me.
I finally left the apartment before 4 pm but did quite a circuit. I went to the craft store for a postcard, then to a bank, a post office, the Chido museum and then our local post office. I even bumped into the Mormon missionaries again. I got home a few minutes before F called.
Surprisingly, when he got home, he actually asked me what I did today. I had lots to tell him. I also got started on dinner soon after.
Tonight we had the steamed garlic-zucchini that I like, plus a side of pasta, salad and some chicken. Everything turned out quite nicely and we enjoyed our dinner. Yum.
F did the dishes and we spent a quiet but nice evening together. I did half a round of the blanket during Criminal Minds and then put it away for tomorrow night. Or day. I watched a couple of documentaries on NHK tonight and enjoyed them. I’d seen both of them before, but what the hey.
And that was my day, both good and bad. Night.
