Thursday - Hot and Sunny
A good day.
I got up early today and put a load of laundry in right away. I surprised myself with that. I checked email and such and then hung up the laundry when it was done. At 10:30 I settled in for Charmed and breakfast and the newspaper, followed by a little bit of crochet.
I was just finished making the bed and changing into house clothes when F called to see if I'd like to go for lunch. I said sure, so had to change again!
We went to a gyudon restaurant where I had gyudon on tofu with miso soup on the side. It wasn't bad at all.
I came home and scanned the cards I was sending out, plus wrote two more while I watched DCI Banks. I am enjoying the English Detective show that WOWOW is putting on in the afternoon. A little after 4 pm, I raced off to the post office to mail my cards.
When I came home again I got started on the yogurt and cucumber salad. I had drained a lot of the yogurt overnight, so it was thick and creamy, but I had to drain the cucumbers too. Unfortunately I didn't rinse off the salt quickly enough so the salad was a bit salty, but honestly not that bad. I got it all done and put in the fridge.
F phoned at that point to say that he'd be a bit late and I told him it was fine as the salad had to chill.
When he came home later he cooked his udon or whatever, and I put out the other food. I cut up the roast duck that we bought yesterday and put out the cucumber-yogurt salad and also a regular salad for me. Dinner was nice. No muss, no fuss.
We had a quiet evening in. I watched my double shot of House & Bones, followed by a very interesting The Good Wife. Really enjoy that show.
I did have a funny thing happen when I was making the salad today. The garlic powder had caked, so I was loosening it up with a spoon. Suddenly, the now loose garlic came cascading out of the bottle and sprayed me from head to toe in garlic powder. It went everywhere. It stuck to my t-shirt and my undershirt and we won't even mention what other places it ended up in. I told F that when I wash my clothes, the washing machine is going to smell like garlic soup for a while!
That's about it for me. Tomorrow I'm meeting a friend early for a change. We'll have tea or something, maybe a bite to eat, and of course, lots of talk! After that, who knows? Come back tomorrow and find out! Night.
