Sunday - Sunny and warm!
A good day. I overslept this morning, but I didn't care that much! F had gotten up, taken out the bread and gone to his mother's house by the time I was out of bed this morning.
We went out for lunch to Grado today. I had a sparerib in a sweet chilli red wine sauce. It was very tender, and delicious. F had fish and said that he liked what he ate too. Yay.
After lunch we ran a few errands. We finally got more ink for our fax machine and picked up a few things at the drug store. After that, we came home for a few minutes. I put on sunscreen, grabbed a hat and my flask full of cold water, and off we went.
F wanted to go to Ikoinomura, a park near Tsuruoka that is famous for tulips. We missed the peak season, but they were so gorgeous that it didn't matter. I took lots of pictures, so have a look at them. Click on them to see them bigger.
On the way back into Tsuruoka, we stopped for gelato at the Tomato Farm shop. I had hazelnut and chocolate, F had pistachio and chocolate. Yummo. After that, F got some gas when we arrived back in our city and then F suggested going to the Internet Cafe. I said sure!
We went and spent a few hours in the massaging chairs. It is heavenly. I spent my time watching clips from the Ellen show on YouTube! It was quite fun for most of it, although I did watch some of the serious stuff from when she first came out. Both F and I had a bite when we were there.
When we'd had enough, we had a quick nosh at Yoshinoya and then bought a few groceries at the store. I'm going to make omelettes for dinner tomorrow night. I suggested that I do that for a change. I'd like to get in the habit of making simpler meals rather than Meals. I make things too fancy sometimes.
Anyway we came home and I watched a bit of TV and let F watch a bit too! I'm sure he thinks he doesn't get enough, but I think he gets too much J-TV!
So that was my day. It was rather nice. The flowers were amazing and I'm glad that we went to see them. Got to go. Night!
