Saturday - Sunny, coolish
An okay day.
I got up this morning to a quiet apartment. F was up watching TV, but he had the volume really low and no lights on. I did get up when my alarms went off, sat in the living room for a while at my computer, but then decided to go back to bed. I was tired, hubby wasn't talking to me, and I had a headache.
He came back for a snuggle, but got up again when he realized I really was planning on sleeping! I got up around noon the next time.
We talked about our plans for the day. We decided to go to Grado for brunch, then do a little Christmas shopping. We both had nice meals at Grado. I had pork in a white wine vinegar sauce, F had fish. The restaurant comped us a dessert to share because we give them my old newspapers. Yay.
We shopped in the afternoon and went to a hardware store. I got a few things for me, the apartment and for my brother in law there. Then, we went to another shop and got something else for him, his "big" present. I think it is rather nice. So, one down, three and a half big presents to go!
We came home for a while and then went over to the mall in Mikawa. We had dinner quite soon, we went to the soba/fish place. F had something like a version of carbonara but with udon, I had an udon and mushroom tempura thing. Mine was okay this time, last time I loved it.
We hacked around the mall for a while, looking for presents or ideas and not finding any. After a bit, we went to Baskin Robbins for ice cream. That was a nice treat.
We went to see Carrie, the new version. It was okay. There were some points I liked more in this version, some points I didn't like as much as the original, but I don't want to spoil things for anyone who hasn't seen it yet. F was a bit weirded out by it I think, even though I tried to prepare him for it.
We came home and had a quiet evening in. I tried to watch TV, but a storm kept knocking the channel out so it was too annoying to keep watching. WOWOW has some weird thing going on tonight, so there wasn't any Project Runway. Sigh.
F went to bed early on, I'm still up, but must get to bed soon. My headache is coming back so I obviously need some sleep. That's it for me. Not sure what I'll get up to tomorrow. Wish me luck. Night.
