Thursday - Rainy with a few clear patches
Odd day, but okay.
I got up fairly early this morning, but it was dark out, again. I hate that. I'm not good at getting up when it is dark outside.
I had a quiet morning around the apartment. I watched an interesting fashion documentary about Diana Vreeland, showered, breakfasted and watched a bit of other TV. I wrote a couple more postcards and then scanned them all. I decided that I'd try and get one of my packages in the mail as it was easy to get ready. Of course I had to find a box and wrap all the contents too! I was lucky in that I was able to watch Children of a Lesser God in the afternoon. It had been years since I saw it, and Marlee Matlin was excellent in it.
At a few minutes to 5 I zoomed over to the post office, only to have the post office lady refuse to take my parcel because, well, I'm not a hundred percent sure why, but I think because she didn't know if my country would accept one of the contents. Gah! Since I don't know what she was on about, I'll just try another post office and this time I won't mention that item. I'm not sending anything illegal through the mail, and I brought the same thing into Canada in person two months ago. Sigh.
I brought my big heavy box home and then a few minutes later F came home. After he changed, we ran a few errands. I got some things for dinner tonight, and the apartment. Then we went to the drugstore and got more apartment stuff, plus some drinks, then F bought gas for the car.
We came home and I commenced getting dinner ready. It was so nice to be able to just heat up the stew, not having to cook something from scratch. I made myself some couscous, F had rice, and we both had salad with our dinner. It was yummy! I really enjoyed it again.
F did the dishes and then we settled in for the evening. I watched Avengers Assemble and then flipped over to Once Upon a Time when it was over, so I had a good evening of TV. After that, I caught the end of a documentary about the hatred that Star Wars fans have for George Lucas. It was quite amusing and in good fun really.
I did a bit of crochet and a bit of knitting today too. It wasn't a bad thing at all. I still haven't started my Christmas cards or wrapped all my Christmas presents yet. I have to get on that. Maybe tomorrow I'll get a few more done? That's it for me. Night!
