Monday - Warm and sunny
An okay day today.
I went to bed a bit late last night. I had a shower before I went to bed as I was planning to get up early this morning. I'm not sure if it was the shower or the excitement of getting up early the next day, but I had a hard time getting to sleep.
In the morning I did get up, got myself dressed and went off with F in the car. He dropped me off at the Internet Cafe, and I got a massaging chair booth. I spent the next 4 and a half hours drinking iced tea and being pummelled by my chair while I read the last three newspapers, did a little crochet, had an unhealthy breakfast and watched a bit of TV. It was great.
F and I had pre-arranged that I would meet him for lunch, so he picked me up just after noon. We went off to S-Mall and had lunch at Subway. That was really nice to be honest. We both liked our sandwiches and had a good time together. We were done quite early so I suggested getting him a couple of other things to eat, since I know that he needs more than a big sandwich for lunch. We got him some stuff at the grocery store and he took that off for lunch. I stayed in the mall. I wanted to do a little shopping and to sit and read a bit in the coffee shop.
I bought a few things at the hundred yen shop, then had my tea. It was very nice. I walked home from the mall around 2:30.
It was really nice to come home. I relaxed by changing my clothes. F popped in for a visit as he had to pick someone up in a bit. I changed and then went into the lobby and did the sweeping. Tomorrow is the last day of our turn. Yay.
F had left for work again, and I came back into the apartment. I relaxed again, and after a bit F came home. I had planned to start dinner before F came home, but it didn't happen. I got started fairly soon as I knew it would take some time. Tonight I made another recipe from Simply Recipes…it was Roasted Spaghetti Squash with Sausage and Kale. I couldn't find kale so I used spinach, and of course there was no such thing as turkey sausage, but I managed. Some things were a little fiddly (skinning sausages…yuck) but overall it went well. Oh yes, I cooked my spaghetti squash in the microwave rather than baking it. It's cooler these days, but not THAT cool!
Finally, I cooked everything in my stir-fry pan and it came together really quickly. It was good. I really liked it. F said he liked it, but I don't think he's such a big fan of spaghetti squash.
F did the dishes and we had a quiet evening, except that F watched a lot of sport…sorry, not sport…table tennis…on TV. (Long story…just know that I don't enjoy table tennis due to an ex-student of mine who knew no other topic to talk about in English). I watched Suits at 11 and then Law & Order at midnight. F went to bed a little earlier tonight. I stayed up and finally wrote a review of Dawn of the Planet of the Apes for my Facebook page and then wrote this.
That's about it. I'm done! Tomorrow I have a lunch date and then we'll see what mischief I can get up to. Night.
