Saturday - Rainy and cold.  Happy Halloween!

A good day.

I got up this morning and took a shower almost immediately.  I wanted to get it over and done with.  I had a quiet morning, F came back just a bit before 12 I think.  He brought us some tortilla chips so I went ahead and made guacamole. After that, I stir-fried the last bit of the romaine lettuce and called it all lunch.  We ate and it was quite good.  

In the afternoon we went out to S-Mall to go to Doutors.  Actually, I just wanted to see the kids in their costumes.  It’s weird how ridiculously happy seeing little kids dressed up like princesses and Mario made me!  The kids had a little parade through the mall which was fun to watch.  

F and I drove out to Mikawa to take my new pants in to be hemmed.  Yes, I know I could do it myself, but it is hard and they do a great job, so… We put my pants in, they should be ready next week.  We got a few things for F’s mother and then discussed having dinner in the mall.  There wasn’t much I was interested in, ditto for F, so we went elsewhere.

F wanted to go to a restaurant in the hot spring/sento Den-Den in Mikawa, but when we got there they were closed.  Oh darn! We ended up back in Tsuruoka and went to Kintaro sushi. It wasn’t busy at all, probably because we arrived quite early.  We had a yummy dinner there and then came home.

Around 8 pm we went out again to go to Machi-ga-kine to see St. Vincent with Bill Murray and Melissa McCarthy.  We both enjoyed the movie a lot. 

Afterwards, we went to the grocery store and picked up a few things and then came home.  We had a bit of a midnight feast, and even finished up the guacamole. It was good! We watched Good Morning, Vietnam on TV.  It was the first time I’ve watched it all the way through in years.  

F has just gone to bed and is already out, and I should get off to dreamland too.  We’re going out tomorrow morning if he feels up to it, so I need to be up in about 5 hours.  Yikes!  I hope I can make it!

Come back tomorrow and see how our trip to Tendo goes.  Until tomorrow….

Happy Halloween!

We're gearing up spend the evening eating the two bags of candy that we bought in anticipation of the trick-or-treaters. (There's no danger of running out of candy as we've only had two kids come to the house in the ten years we've been here!)

Thank you!

We don't have trick or treaters either, but it isn't really a thing here yet!

Happy Halloween to you too :-)
