Sunday - Hot and sunny. Hot!
A good day. We both went to bed really, really late last night…I believe we both went around 5 am. I was in bed slightly before F. I didn't get up early at all today!
I dragged myself out of bed just before noon and F fed me some lovely bread that he baked. I liked it, he wasn't too impressed. It was Brioche.
We had lunch at Grado. I had a lovely meal of local pork with camembert cheese grilled on top. It was very yummy. F originally chose a fish dish, but they didn't have it anymore. Instead, he foolishly chose a tomato based pasta dish. He has problems with tomatoes too, so it wasn't a good choice. He finished it, but wasn't too happy about it.
Next up for us was the craft shop. I've been meaning to make F's nephew's child a baby blanket, so we had to get wool. I didn't like the choice for baby stuff, so I branched out to some gorgeous all acrylic stuff in strong colours. I chose a royal navy blue and a cream colour. Unfortunately, with F being there and me having to mentally convert how many balls of yarn I'd need to get the blanket done, I made a mistake. I only bought half of what I need. Sigh. And I thought I had the right sized hook on hand, but I don't. I did a little of the pattern tonight and the yarn works up really nicely. It is so soft.
After the craft stop and a brief drugstore run for F, we hit up the internet cafe and went to karaoke for a couple of hours. It was fun and we enjoyed ourselves. After our two hours, we went over to the massage chairs for an hour and relaxed. Today I found a perfect thing for myself to watch, the Done in 60 Seconds film festival from Empire magazine and Jameson whisky. They were weird, wacky and wonderful.
We had dinner tonight in a soba restaurant. We had soba, which is a bit unusual for me, but it was okay. Then, we bought groceries for tomorrow's dinner. I think I'm going to make something semi-simple like a caesar salad with chicken on top. For me, it sounds delicious and wonderful, but I'll be timing F to see how long it takes him to make ramen for himself afterwards!
We came home and relaxed. I watched a bit of TV and tried out the pattern that I'll be using. It's just a bit of counting but so far so good. It did take a while to get the first row done. I really should check for gauge though. I don't want to make an adult sized blanket!
After a while F went to bed. He has to go to work tomorrow. I do not. I also did a couple of Postcrossings tonight. I'm happy to finally get going on that again. I miss it. And that was it for me. Got to go. Night.
