Friday - Hot and sunny, slightly less humid than yesterday
An okay day.
I got up this day, and felt a bit better than yesterday. It was slightly cooler and much less humid in the morning. I had a quiet and slow morning. I requested and wrote up another Postcrossing card. This one was also going to Canada. My second in a short time. Yay.
In the afternoon I ran out to the post office and mailed off my cards, then made a quick run to a convenience store for my late lunch.
I came home and ate. I even tuned in at 5 pm to watch the Agatha Christie on NHK, just to find that there wasn’t one today. Boo hiss!
F didn’t get home until after 6 and we chatted and vegged for a while. I watched Nigel Slater’s Simple Dinners and drooled as always over the lovely food and his fabulous garden. I started dinner just after the show.
Tonight we had fried chicken drumsticks, salad and bought chawanmushi. F was going to eat one of the drumsticks when I noticed that it wasn’t quite cooked. He was going to eat it anyway. Ewww. I took it back from him, along with all the other pieces of chicken and threw them back in the pan. After a couple minutes more we tried again. They were finally cooked.
After F did the dishes (not many tonight) I asked him if we could watch a DVD. A student of mine had loaned me a movie. I had seen it before, but not since I came to Japan, so more than 15 years ago. It was Secrets and Lies and it was fabulous. F enjoyed it too. I never know if he’s going to enjoy the weird little movies I make him watch, but he does.
At 11:15 I put on Desperate Housewives and it was good. The writers pulled up their socks in this season, a little bit anyway.
F went to bed around 12 and I watched a little more TV before turning it off and doing some internet surfing and listening to music.
My class for tomorrow has cancelled, so I don’t have to go to work. It’s been a bad week for work. F has a few errands to run in the morning and then I’m not sure what we’ll get up to. We could go and see a movie or go to karaoke depending on timing and how we both feel. That’s it for me. Night.
