Monday - Rainy

A busy day.

I got up this morning and watched my shows.  I did make the bed early and also dressed in my workout clothes quite early too.  I did a two mile workout today, one with the band resistance and another newer one for me.  I didn’t really like the newer one but it is early days yet.  

F didn’t come home for lunch, so I didn’t get interrupted. Yay. 

In the afternoon I had a quick lunch and then finished my thank you letter to my relative.  After that, I sealed my sister’s parcel and got ready to walk to the post office.  Yes, I said walk.  My parcel was big and it was raining quite hard so I decided walking would be a good idea.  I got it mailed off quite easily.

I came home and discovered that I had received 3 gotochi cards in the mail as part of an exchange from Chiba.  I have to hurry up and get the next two of mine sent off.  

I also got started on dinner.  I was having a busy night.  I made Roasted Kabocha and Carrot soup, and roasted some cauliflower, plus marinated some pork in Worchestershire sauce. It all turned out well.  F was a bit late coming home, which worked out well for me.  

When F came home I was still in the midst of cooking, so I kept on with it.  He was really tired and barely spoke to me at all.  It was quite sad.  

When dinner was ready I called him.  He was napping on the bed, but did come.  I think we had a good meal, I did.  Everything was very nice and I thought quite delicious.  

I did the dishes afterwards, but F did offer at one point.  I knew he was tired, so I gave him a break.  

We had a quiet evening in.  I watched a bit of TV, F snoozed on the couch and then finally went off to bed.  I’m thinking of heading there too right away. 

I feel like I really did a lot today. Dinner was good and there are enough leftovers for my lunch tomorrow. Yay for that.  Tomorrow I might begin work on my Christmas Newsletter or my Christmas cards.  Wish me luck with that!  Come back anon and find out what I get up to.  Until tomorrow….

Sounds like you're keeping busy these days. And you've got the jump on Christmas. I haven't even begun to think about thinking about Christmas yet!

I can't believe how close it is. I have to send my stuff over to Canada and the UK, so I'm actually quite late. I'll have to send things the expensive way :-(

But, I am glad that I started!

Thanks for visiting.

Hi Helen,

Thanks for your kind comment on my crocheted tree! I am so glad you posted the tutorial link on Ravelry, and I'm hoping to find you there. :)
The tree is one of my all time favs! I like simple and clever ideas like that.
I see you live in Japan :) I am originally from Hyogo-ken, but I've been living in the US for over 20 years, which is half of my life! Why oh why. :D

Hi Chie!

I loved it too, and when I found it couldn't believe that no-one had posted it to Ravelry before I did!

I have been to Hyogo and really enjoyed my time there. I went to a meeting and also saw a fabulous exhibit in an art gallery in Kobe.

I think you have been in the US for the same reason I'm still here, we met someone ;-)

I use the same nom de plume on Ravelry as I do here, stellastarstruck. Feel free to look me up :-)

Thanks for visiting!
