Wednesday - Sunny and hot
A mostly good day.
I got up this morning to an empty apartment again. F had gone over to his mother’s house again. I had some tea, watched some telly, read some blogs. It was nice and relaxing. Until he came home. He was a bit annoyed that I wanted to take a shower, but I did anyway. After my shower he suggested a good place for lunch then pouted that he really wanted to go to the Sakata Port Restaurant. I suggested that he leave now and enjoy himself. I’m not going there with him. I don’t enjoy it and I don’t like who he becomes when he is there. He got quite pouty, left and then came back when I said we had to pick up my ring later on.
Anyway, longish story shorter, we went to the Farm restaurant again. It was nice, but I don’t want to go there all of the time. We just went there on the weekend! Today I had pork with sesame sauce and fish with an odd name. F had mackeral and pork shabu-shabu. I thought it was good, F didn’t like his fish.
After dinner we drove to S-Mall and picked up my ring. Last time we were there F had also asked about “pair watches”—His & Her watches in English. We’d taken a couple of catalogues home with us to look at. They are nice, but I still have my watch from before we got married, and F got himself a fancy watch a couple of years ago. I’m not sure it is necessary, and F is thinking about the lower end of the lines anyway. We also stopped for a drink in Doutor. I had my usual Royal Soy Milk Tea and it was good.
We came home for what I thought was a few minutes but turned into hours. At 5 F left to walk his dog and then came back at 6ish, took some medicine and went to bed. Huh? I thought we were going to have dinner, but not yet.
I turned on the TV to set the DVR and discovered that Walk the Line was just starting. I ended up watching it and quite enjoying it. I used the downtime to darn in the ends of all the small squares that I have been making. Got them all done too. Whew! I’m not a Joachim Phoenix fan at all, but thought he was good, I like Reese Witherspoon and liked her a lot more in this. I’m still not sure if she deserved her Academy Award though! I remember my mum always talking about June Carter Cash when she saw her on TV and how she really couldn’t sing! I also think my parents had a copy of Folsom Prison Blues…won’t swear to it, but I know my dad liked Johnny Cash.
Finally, as the end credits rolled, I finished my last square. I woke my husband up. I basically demanded dinner! It was 9:00pm and I had been waiting a long time. F was okay with it and agreed to go to Gusto.
We went to Gusto and it was quiet. Yay. F suggested that we have Misuji steak, and that was what we ended up having. I had mine with a salad and F had the rice, soup and drink bar set. I had drink bar too. It wasn’t bad steak, which is rather surprising considering where we were!
We came home via the grocery store. I’m going to make a stir-fry tomorrow night. I bought mostly prepared vegetables, although I’ll add in a few mushrooms and maybe an onion tomorrow.
I prepped the garbage for F to take out tomorrow and then sat down to watch House. F went to bed again as he was tired. I’ll try and get to bed soon as I’m tired.
It was a fairly productive day for me, I got my ring back and I got the squares “finished”. That was only the first 16. I have a lot more to go! Tomorrow I’m not exactly sure what I’ll get up to, come back and find out. Until tomorrow….
