Saturday - Sunny, with a cold wind
A good day. I overslept a bit this morning, but did get up and I took a shower. I spent a bit of time on my computer and F came home early this week. Yay! We talked about going out for lunch. I suggested on place, F suggested another and we agreed on that one.
We went to the old farm restaurant near Voice. It was quite lovely. I had apple flavoured pork and masu-yaki. It’s a type of trout apparently. F had pork with another flavour and another fish. The meal was very nice.
After our lovely lunch, I suggested going to Yamaya via the Grand El Son to see if their restaurant had re-opened. It has. It looks quite spiffy from the outside. I really hope that it hasn’t become too spiffy pricewise! We got to Yamaya and did a little shopping. The best buy I got today was a big block of Gouda. I also got more tuna to make the tuna burgers again. We spent a few minutes in the hardware store nearby. I got myself a rubber tube for exercising. Let’s hope I really try and do it!
We came home and then took a little walk over to Tsuruoka park for our hanami. The park was lovely, but it was quite windy. The cherry blossoms are just past their peak, but the weather was bad earlier in the week. F and I had a tama-konnayku each and then came home.

F went off to his house to take care of his dog, and then came back a bit later. We had dinner at a restaurant behind Pal. It was great. F had ramen (that he didn’t complain too much about) and I had a pork chop type of thing that came with soup, salad, and dessert.
After dinner, we had to race back to Machi-Kine to see our movie. By the time I sat down, I’d missed all the previews, but luckily was there in time for the movie to start. We saw Fast & Furious 7. It wasn’t Shakespeare, but it was so over the top that I was howling at it. And yet, at the end, I shed a little tear at the lovely way they said goodbye to Paul Walker.
We came home after the movie and had a quiet night in. I watched Penny Dreadful which was a humdinger tonight and now I’m watching Marple. I did a little knitting, but I haven’t had that much time for it tonight. Hopefully I will get it done soon though.
And that is it for my day. We have plans for tomorrow, so I’ll try and tell you about my day later. Until tomorrow….
