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 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?

Until tomorrow….

Love your color choices for the blanket! Sneak peek looks great.

Thank you! But...actually they are the same choices as the other one I did, I just changed it up a bit. I over-ordered the amount of yarn and had more than enough for two blankets! I have a little bit left, but not enough for a whole blanket now!

We've been having torrential showers on and off which makes it hard to take pictures of things under natural light.

Thanks for visiting :-)

That looks just lovely and snuggly. The colors and blocks work great together.

Helen said...

Thank you! I'm not sure which of the two blankets I like better actually. The ice blue (sherbet) goes so well with the navy, and sea green (petrol) and seems to pop just a little bit more than I thought it would.

Same pattern, two quite different looks!

Thought the colors looked familiar.
