Wednesday - Cloudy, then sunny
A good day.
I got up early this morning. I did. I got up, looked around the living room, checked email quickly and got dressed. I went out a little bit after 9 am. I went to Machi-kine to see (Don’t hate me) Fifty Shades of Grey(Don’t hate me). It was beautiful to look at, I mean the gorgeous Vancouver exteriors, and Jamie Dornan isn’t bad either, but overall….I’m so glad I didn’t read the books! Two hours and it was over! At the end I was thinking, “Shouldn’t this be wrapping up soon?” and, luckily, it did! My popcorn and drink were great. I’m not sure if popcorn will catch on as a breakfast food, but it is a cereal after all!
After the movie I left the theatre and detoured into the big shrine on the corner near the post office. As I went in, I realized that it was 30 years since my mother died. I spent a bit of time at the shrine and felt that my mother would have appreciated the gesture. It was peaceful in there as I was the only person around and afterwards I felt at peace, and grateful for the time that we had her in our lives.
I biked over to the mall next. I checked out the restaurant upstairs to see what their specials were. One of them was a pasta I could eat, so I went in and had lunch. I had chicken and mushroom cream pasta. It came with a non-alcoholic cocktail, salad, soup, bun and coffee (in my case tea). It was quite nice. I really enjoyed the pasta.
After lunch I visited the 100 yen shop and got a few things, then checked out the grocery store downstairs. I didn’t buy anything there. I decided to come home afterwards, rather than stop into the coffee shop. I biked home.
At home I did a bit of bike maintenance and then got caught up on my TV and email. It was quite relaxing.
F came home a bit late today and we thought about where to go for dinner. I suggested a few places, but we finally decided on Bikkuri Donkey!! We went and had an okay meal. I was miffed because I couldn’t have the meal type I wanted, I had to have the one with rice. They didn’t have any of the larger sized meat patties. That didn’t bother us, but I wanted the non-rice dishes.
We hit up the drug store for a few things, then the grocery store. I’m going to be cooking for the next couple of nights again.
When we came home, I watched my Wednesday shows, Once Upon a Time, CSI and Scandal. Of course, I also caught the re-broadcasts of House and Bones. I did a bit more finishing work on my blanket...still a long way to go.
I hope to do a bit of tidying up tomorrow and maybe some getting ready for my trip! Come back soon and see what I get up to! Until tomorrow….
