Monday - Rainy and cold
A busyish day.
I got up late this morning. It was so dark outside I honestly thought it was still early so was surprised when I realized it was after 9! Yikes. I got up, half-watched Charlie’s Angels, drank some tea, checked my email, the usual stuff.
I had breakfast around 11, then didn’t take a shower even though I needed it. I made the bed, did my computer stuff, read two newspapers and then decided to vacuum the apartment. I did parts I don’t usually bother with, but first I changed the vacuum bag. Yay me. F sucked up some curry a few weeks ago and every time I use the vacuum, all I can smell is curry powder.
I had a quick lunch today too. I had some of my leftover couscous with two scrambled eggs on top of it. That was quite yummy. When I finished that, I got started on dinner. I washed, peeled, cut and finally cooked the ingredients for my stew. For the prep part I watched part of Mr. Selfridge, a BBC series a friend loaned me. It was great.
F came home a bit after 6 and was exhausted. He changed and went to bed right away. He looked so tired. I let him have a rest, and checked that he did really want to have dinner tonight. He did.
The stew came together really well. Tonight for the first time I put kabu in it, a kind of Japanese turnip. They are one of this area’s big products. I called F and he came. We enjoyed our dinner, but I felt a bit sad because he only had one helping. He did the dinner dishes even though I told him he didn’t have to.
After dinner he watched a bit of TV and we both used our computers. I did some Postcrossing. It’s the first I’ve done in a couple of weeks. I’ve been busy!
And that was my day. It turned out rather well. The stew is yummy and I’m looking forward to having leftovers tomorrow. Yay! I have to go. Night!
