Thursday - Rainy and cold
A good day.
I got up this morning to check that F had taken out all of the garbage. There was a lot. He had, which was nice. I went back to bed, but got up again at 9. F was still there, he was planning to leave soon though.
He left and I watched my telly, read my paper and had breakfast. I was just starting to think about my afternoon when I got a call from him. The car had stopped at a bank and didn’t start again. Oh no. He called JAF and they gave him a boost. Or something, I’m not really clear. He went to the car dealership and they looked over the car and he bought a new battery for it.
Since he was late anyway, he called me and asked me to go out for lunch. He came home and picked me up. We went to a fish restaurant that he likes and had a pretty good fish lunch. It filled me up for the rest of the afternoon.
After lunch he dropped me off and set out on his way to his meeting. I came into the apartment and got caught up on some of my stuff.
In the afternoon I took care of my de-cluttering, which involved do a spot of cleaning. Yay for that.
I relaxed for a while, but around 7:30 F called to say that he was on his way home. He expected it would take 2 hours…it took two and a half. There was a lot of snow in the mountains and the roads weren’t great. Sigh.
While he was driving home, I made dinner. I roasted some chicken and steamed a cauliflower, then made a white sauce with curry in it for the veggie. To be honest, I just prepped the white sauce ingredients before F came home, I waited so it would be ready for dinner. I did steam the cauliflower early though.
Dinner was nice. It was a bit sad that F was too tired to really appreciate it. We ate and had a nice meal. I did the dishes as F was really tired and I thought he needed a break.
I watched my usual TV shows, but I didn’t really do any of the things I hoped to do tonight like crochet, watch a movie or do a few postcrossings. Sigh.
Oh, the decluttering today was a mixed bag. I finally tossed (or arranged to be tossed) some old pans, and other stuff from the kitchen including some tea, sugar packets and dried salmon. I also finally chucked some old lip balm tubes. It’s getting harder, but I’m enjoying it more.
Got to go. Night!
