Tuesday - Sunny and warm

A good day.

I got up this morning and F was already in the living room.  He had the day off and stuck around the living room for a while.  He left to go over to his mother’s house.  Silly me thought he’d be back in a few minutes, it was hours before I saw him again!

I didn’t do a workout today because I thought F would be back soon.  Oh well.

When he came home we had lunch at home.  We had a Costco bagel each and some chicken luncheon meat on it.  I made a pot of tea, and we finished up the spinach salad from Monday.  It was a light lunch, but a nice one.

In the afternoon F finally got around to calling Apple to see about his phone.  It has been out of order for weeks.  I told him that I’d go out and go for a walk.  I didn’t want to interfere with him or distract him when he was on the phone.  

I walked to the post office and bought some puppy stamps, they are really cute.  I thought the new 18 yen stamps would be out too, but I was two days too early.  Sigh. 

I continued to the park. I went into the secret corner of the park where there is a little shrine. I went in and took a few pictures.  It really is a special little area that no-one seems to visit outside of New Year’s Eve.

This is just a little run of torii, but it looks so cool.

I walked a bit more in the park, listened to my favourite statue’s music and then went home again. I got my walk in after all, and I got some vitamin D too!

F was still on the phone with the Apple help desk, but things seemed to be working.  In fact, they did get everything up and running again.  Hurray for that.  

We vegged for a while and then I made dinner.  Tonight we had garlic and cheese chicken from the store, plus another spinach salad with egg.  I sautéed some mushrooms and onions that were left from last night and served it all up.  It was good and got quite good reviews.

F did the dishes and later on gave me a bit of bread that we got from the wedding and a bit of fudge that I had brought him from Canada.  It was good, but I really shouldn’t have had any!

I watched a bit of TV tonight and finally got a start on my column.  I hope the rest of it goes as easily as this did tonight.  

That’s about it for today.  Tomorrow I have to write and work out.  Unbelievable!  Come back later and find out what else I get up to.  Until tomorrow….

Thank you!

It is a really cool little corner of Tsuruoka Park.
