Monday - Clear and sunny, warm
A good day.
I got up this morning and had a basically quiet time of it. F popped in for a few minutes to get something, but was on his way again soon. I tried to read more of Middlemarch, but I wasn’t into it this morning and abandoned it in favour of the newspaper. I’ll try again tomorrow.
I took a shower and tried to watch Agents of Shield, but it wasn’t on the TV. Sigh. I watched bits and pieces of stuff, from “live” TV and from the DVR. In the afternoon I prepared a couple of packages to go out. One was a bookmooch, the other for a lady in my women’s group. Around 4 I ran them off to the post office. Or, should I say, I biked them off? I rode my bicycle this afternoon. I think it was the first time this year. Yay for me.
I came home and then washed the dishes. I got the table set and dinner pre-started. I took out the pot, filled it with water, that kind of thing. F came home a bit late tonight. I didn’t mind too much. I had fortuitously found Before Sunrise on cable, so re-watched it. It was wonderful, and also quite bittersweet, in terms of what I know will happen to the two along the way. Casablanca came on just as F came home. When dinner was ready I turned it off. Sigh.
We had linguini Alfredo tonight, plus smoked duck breast and a side salad each. It was quite nice really. I certainly enjoyed it. Immediately after dinner, F disappeared to the bedroom and there he stayed for most of the night. I was a tad perturbed as it was his turn to do the dishes, but decided if he was that tired, I’d probably be better off doing them now, than I would be by waiting for him. Luckily there wasn’t that much to do so I got them done quickly.
I checked the TV listings and found that Out of Africa was going to be on in a few minutes. I had never seen it, so decided that since it looked like F was going to be AWOL for the night, I would watch it. I really enjoyed it. Meryl Streep was amazing and Redford was pretty okay too!
The kerosene in the heater ran out about 20 minutes before the movie did, so I just left it! I didn’t want to miss anything. After the movie, I filled it up again, and surprise, surprise, F made a brief appearance. He’s back in bed asleep now.
I had a good evening. I wrote two postcards, watched a movie I’ve never seen before and washed the dishes. Hurray for me. Not sure what I’ll get up to tomorrow. Come on back and find out. Until tomorrow night….
