Monday - Too Hot and Sunny
A goodish day.
I got up this morning, watched my show, had a visit from F, worked out and then had lunch. It was a busy morning! Well, not really.
In the afternoon I did a little laundry and watched a couple of shows on the telly. I did have something stupid happen today. I just got a new watch and the wristband was too big. I popped out the pin to adjust it and it fell to the floor. I looked for it. I cleaned under my desk, I scanned the area with two flashlights, I swept, I even used a magnet. I couldn’t find the pin. I didn’t want to tell F since it was a present from him. I decided that when I was in the mall later, I’d go to the jewelry shop and get them to sell me a new pin. I finished watching Penny Dreadful and also caught an episode of DCI Banks. I had a quick lunch and then decided to leave for the mall. I wanted to do a little shopping and I needed to get out of the hot apartment.
Going outside was like going into a sauna. Yuck. It was so hot and so humid. Riding my bike wasn’t too bad. I made good time and got to the mall. At the mall I went to the jewelry shop first as I knew it would take a bit of time. They understood what I wanted and I was told to come back in 15 minutes.
I went to the hundred yen shop and did a little bit of shopping. I got some nice stuff, some for my niece and something for F. I went downstairs and got my watch back, and paid of course. I did a little shopping downstairs, but not that much. I went to Doutors for a sandwich and an iced tea. I started reading an actual book, Odd Apocalypse by Dean Koontz. I’ve pretty much given up on him, but I bookmooched this novel and I have to read it.
I was there when F called. He was on his way to his mother’s. I told him I was leaving soon, and that I’d see him at home.
I got home quite quickly and decided to turn on the air conditioner. It was hot and humid and horrible inside. It cooled down and became fairly livable soon.
F was a bit late tonight. He’d been at his mother’s and then did some shopping for her and for himself. I told him he could go ahead and cook his dinner first. He didn’t take too long.
I poached a chicken breast for myself and had that with some salad. I actually washed lettuce leaves tonight. It was yummy. I had salad, some of the chicken and dressing, plus parmesan. I could have more, so I added on a piece of bread and some peanut butter.
F watched some sports but fell asleep on it so I changed the station and watched something else. I did tell him he could change it back, but I think it was over anyway.
F isn’t doing too well tonight. I am worried a bit about heat stroke or just generally not taking care of himself today. Apparently it was the hottest day of the year up here so far.
I wrote a few postcards for postcrossing. One took a long time to do as the person had quite specific requests. They weren’t bad, I’m not talented! And, when I moved my box of postcards...I found my pin for my watch! ARGH!
That’s really about it for today. I’m hoping to be able to exercise tomorrow, I have to scan my cards, run them to the post office and maybe wrap my niece’s presents for her. Come back later and find out what I get up to. Until tomorrow….
