Thursday - Sunny but coolish
A good day.
I got up early for me this morning and went for a walk. I hadn’t prepared to go out this morning, so it took a bit, and I never did find my nice pink headphones, so I didn’t have any music either. It didn’t really matter. I only went for 10 minutes, but it was nice. Basically I went around our very big block! I could feel my hip hurting a little, but it wasn’t that bad. I’m not sure if I’ll go tomorrow too. Maybe.
When I came back I had some water and computer time. I had a relaxing morning and did get stuck into my column finally. It’s going fairly well.
I had a quiet day and then I thought about scanning my cards. The only thing was, my new computer doesn’t support my printer/scanner. Oh, it supports the printer part, but not the scanner. Since I scan all the cards I send and receive, that was a big problem. I spent many hours this afternoon downloading drivers and driver bits. Finally, when I was going to give up, it started to work. It’s quite different now and I’m not sure I’ll like it that much, but we’ll see.
When F came home, he basically went straight to bed. I went in to check on him and he was okay, just tired and his back hurt. I asked him if he wanted dinner and he did. He said he’d get up for it.
I cooked so tonight I made Mediterranean Couscous (from a packet), miso pork chops (prepared by the grocery store) and salad. We had two kinds tonight, one was just lettuce, the other was vegetable sticks. F seemed to like it, except of course he added rice and slimy squid to it. Bleck.
He did the dishes while I wrote my column and watched TV. Tonight was my big night for it after all. I enjoyed it.
After midnight, F went outside to see if he could see any meteors, but he couldn’t. He said the sky was clear tonight, unlike yesterday. He did talk about taking a mini-break in November around his birthday, so I made a reservation for us. I hope it’ll be okay. I told him I didn’t want to go to Kanazawa again. I’d love to go, but last time we didn’t really have a good time together, and I blame the hotel!
Anyway, I digress. I basically had a good day today. Tomorrow we’re going to have a nabe for dinner, so that should be nice I hope. I have to finish my column and polish it if I have time.
That’s it for me. Signing off!
