Tuesday - Rainy with some clear patches

An okay day.

I didn’t want to get up this morning.  I slept in a few minutes. I’m blaming the cold medicine, but it was probably all my fault!  I got up, watched The Gilmore Girls and ate a little yogurt, then took my shower.

I did a few housework things around the apartment, and in the afternoon got ready to go to work.  I made myself a lovely omelette with some sliced chicken in it.  It was good.  

I expected to get rained on when I left home, but luckily I had found a clear window in the rain and got to my school unscathed.  Hurray.  I set up and even got out the heater to warm the school up a little.  It didn’t need much, but there was a chill in the air.  

My student called just before her class was to start to say that she wasn’t able to come again.  Month end is a busy time for many people.  I read the newspapers instead, did a bit of paperwork, and then I’m a little embarrassed to say this, I fell asleep.  I woke up and it was almost 7 pm. Oops.  I’d only been asleep for 15 minutes or so, but it was sad.  F texted me, and I phoned him back.  He came to get me.

It was raining really hard outside when he came.  I felt rather sorry for him as he had to pick up my bike.  We “discussed” where to go for dinner. I suggested one place and we set off for it, and then on the way there, I suggested Hyakkenbori, so that’s where we went.  It’s a restaurant near one of the universities and they use local produce and create really nice food.  

We were able to go in, even though they were busy.  I had teriyaki chicken, F had udon with tempura and we shared an order of sashimi.  They took a long time to bring us the sashimi, so they gave us free dessert.  It was quite nice.

After dinner we hit the grocery store.  I suggested salmon for dinner tomorrow night, so I’ll be cooking that, with some broccoli and maybe some couscous.  

We had a quiet night at home.  F watched some TV, then me.  It was all very friendly and nice.  I’ve been drinking hot drinks with no caffeine to try and unplug my nose.  Even with the medicine it gets so very plugged up.  Blech.  

Anyway, that is it for today.  I’m off to bed soon.  Hope I get some sleep.  Night!

Do you have a cold? Are you OK? Taking a soonze is comfartable, but be careful. It might get your cold worse.
"Autumn Salmon" is delicious, isn't it?

Yes, I have a cold. I'm all stuffed up at the moment. I'm feeling better, but still a bit tired all the time!

I think salmon is delicious all the time! We have a couple of nice pieces for our dinner tonight.

Thanks for visiting Mieko! :-)
