Monday - Sunny and warm

A good day.

I got up a little late this morning, but not very late!  I came through to the living room and relaxed, checked email and after a bit ate breakfast and read my papers from the weekend.

F called me at 11:30 to invite me out for lunch, just as I was going to go and have a shower.  I asked him if I could skip it, and he didn't mind.  

In the afternoon I read part of the book I'm reading (Cry Wolf) and made a t-shirt into Tarn. It worked out rather well.  

I never did go out today and I still haven't started my column. I finished up my scarf from Friday by hemming the raw edges. I cooked dinner, which for some reason got quite good reviews.  I did chicken drumsticks, salad, new potatoes and urui which is a new-to-me-as-a-cook Japanese plant.  I'm not big on adventures when it comes to them.  I did part of the dishes and then F did in the rest.  

In the evening I read a lot of my book, wrote a little email and started a tarn-bag.  I'm not sure if I like it much, but I do love the colour!

I watched Newsroom, which was great, and had a nice quiet evening.  Tomorrow I should get going on my column. I may even go out and try to get a start on it out of the apartment.  F and I might go and look at the hanami in the evening when he comes home from work.  We'll see what happens then.  

That's it for me for tonight. Oh, wait, I'll toss in a couple of pictures of my last scarf from Friday.  I really like it.  What do you think?

Your scarf is lovely. Very pretty colors.
I did not know hostas were edible! They are one of my favorite garden plants; easy to grow and pretty to look at. Now I'll have to try eating one. How did it taste?

Hostas or urui are quite common up here as a mountain vegetable that has been domesticated! I stir-fried mine and found that it was milder than a green onion, but that sort of consistency. Some people liken them to asparagus.

Thanks about my scarf. It was so easy, I really shouldn't brag. I don't wear a lot of scarves, I just like making them! I bought the "yarn" at Tokai....got the directions from YouTube...it's very similar to Red Heart's Sassy.

Thanks for visiting :-)
