Thursday - Rainy then clear

A good day.

I got up this morning quite early, snoozed on the couch for a few minutes, but then woke up and watched my show.  Yay.  I didn’t oversleep today.  I had a nice quiet morning.  I read a chapter of my book, read my blog and had breakfast.  The usual.  

In the afternoon I did a couple of loads of laundry finally and debated going out to the post office or not.  I decided not today.  I also did something that I haven’t done in ages, I shredded a bag of my stuff.  Things like envelopes with my name on them, old computer printouts, you get the idea.  It took a while, but was quite satisfying!  

In the later part of the afternoon, I washed the dishes and got the table ready for dinner.  I took out the grill and washed that too. Then I took a break for a bit.

F came home and for a change he prepared for dinner.  When he was ready, we had a lovely meal of yakiniku and vegetables.  Afterwards he said how nice it was to have so many vegetables with the meal and I pointed out that when we go to yakiniku I try to order more vegetables…I get salad sometimes, and usually egg soup, which has a lot of veggies.  We sometimes order more veggies too.  I’m not sure if he believes me or not!

I did the dishes and then settled in at my computer for a couple of TV programmes and a little postcrossing.  F was looking for his wallet and decided to go over to his mother’s to see if he left it there.  He came back a little while later, but hadn’t found it.  Sigh.  Then he misplaced his phone.  I don’t know, what should I do to make him take care of his stuff?  Luckily the phone turned up, but the wallet still hasn’t.

F went to bed rather early, so I sat on the couch and darned in some ends during Once Upon a Time. That was good.  I still have a ways to go as I’m trying to sew some of the squares together with the ends.  I should probably do it separately.

And that was my day.  I did have a couple of long lost postcrossings come through today.  One was a card that I thought was a goner as the person hadn’t been on postcrossing forever…he registered it today.  The other was a little bit sad, the person had quit postcrossing so Postcrossing registered the card for me.  The last one was also a very long ago card.  

Tomorrow I’ll go out to mail my postcards and my passport, and I’m hoping to maybe go and have some tea somewhere, but I still haven’t finished my column, so I might not.  

That’s it for me, until tomorrow….

I put a bell on my husband's bike key. Doesn't work for wallets and phones though, both of which he has also misplaced. He loses hats, gloves, scarves and umbrellas a lot too...
I recently had an old postcrossing card registered by Postcrossing too, saying that the account had been closed. It was almost a year old! It's nice that they are doing that.

I'm thinking about chaining it to his ear or something so he never loses it! He still hasn't found it. I can't quite understand it.

It is nice that they are giving us credit for the old cards! There's been quite a few that just haven't gone through...I'd love to know what happened to the cards.
