Thursday - Sunny, Cloudy, Rainy…all sorts of weather!
A good day.
I got up this morning and watched my show and ate breakfast. Then, I made the bed, got dressed and headed out to the theater. I went to see Whiplash, the Academy Award winning film. It was playing at our local cinema. It was a really good movie and I wish I had seen it with someone so that I could talk to them about it!
After the movie, I biked off to S-Mall. I had lunch at Subway…a new sandwich: chicken, renkon and mushroom. It was quite good. After lunch I biked over to my hair dresser and asked if I could come in today. She was busy at the time and asked me to come back in an hour and a half. No problem!
I hacked the mall for a bit. I looked around the hundred yen shop, then used the washroom and then headed off to the salon. I got my usual great hair cut and my head just feels so much better. We chatted a bit today, which was really nice. She sometimes doesn’t feel like talking. Her English isn’t too bad actually so I don’t mind.
After I left the salon I went back to the mall and tried out the new drink at Doutors, Orzo Latte. I liked it. I don’t know if I’ll have it all the time, but this time was good. I also bought a few things from the hundred yen shop that I had scouted out earlier.
I left the mall and of course it started raining. However it wasn’t too bad and I made good time getting home. I wasn’t even that wet!
F called me about 3 minutes after I got home and said he was going to his mother’s. I rested for a bit and then when F came home I began putting dinner together. I was planning to cook cabbage using a spice packet from the store, but couldn’t find it. Maybe I already used it? I had to find another recipe quickly. Google to the rescue. I found a stir-fry recipe with only a few ingredients on All-Recipes.com and it was easy and good. I had to shred the cabbage and then stir fry it with some garlic, and add soy sauce and cooking wine, but I used vinegar instead. It got rave reviews and F asked me to keep the recipe and do it again!
F did the dishes tonight and then settled in for an evening with Japanese TV. I didn’t like it much. He also put on an American Gangster movie where everyone died at the end. I didn’t like it at all. I went over to the couch and worked on my blanket during Rizzoli and Isles. And…..I finished it! I took a quick snapshot, but I’ll try and get a better look at it for you tomorrow.
|Think of this as your sneak peak!|
And that was my day. It was quite busy, but also a good day. I seem to be able to do a lot more when I go out these days…before I would have been exhausted, but I’m fine.
Tomorrow F is off work and has a doctor’s appointment at the hospital. After that he may take his mother out. I think he’s weaselling out of going to my restaurant! Oh well. I should do some laundry but the question is, will I?
