Thursday - Snowy
A good day, but sad.
I found out this evening that Alan Rickman died today. I loved his work and thought that he was wonderful in almost everything that he did. My favourite part of his was always Hans Gruber in DieHard, but he was fabulous in the Harry Potter series, Sense and Sensibility, Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves and of course in Galaxy Quest. The only thing I didn’t like him in was The January Man which was a fairly early, little-seen film he did. I will miss his fabulous voice and his acting work so much.
On with my day then. I got up a bit late again and came through, had tea and breakfast while I read my blog and surfed the net. Once again, I thought that F might come home for lunch, so I put off my exercise. I got exercise, but I didn’t do any in the apartment today.
After 1 pm I decided to walk to the nearest bank machine, take out some money and then walk it over to the post office. I didn’t leave the apartment for a while, but did finally go out. I walked to the bank machine near the grocery store. I debated stopping at McDonalds for a treat, but decided not to do that. I made a quick pit stop at home and then went off to the post office so I could pay for the convention I’m planning to go to in May. I got it done and then came home again.
At home, I put on my fake crocs and went upstairs to do the sweeping in our apartment building. This is our month and I haven’t looked at it yet. F hadn’t done it this week either, so it was a good thing. After that, I went back into the apartment.
I had a very late lunch but that was fine. I did the dishes up afterwards too, no biggie.
F came home around 7 pm tonight. I suggested going to dinner at Gusto. He didn’t want to, but we went there. We had similar dishes. I had a cut steak with foie gras and he had a Japanese set dish that was sliced beef and foie gras. I liked mine, he wasn’t so happy.
We bought groceries for tomorrow. I decided that I’m going to make myself some spaghetti tomorrow. I haven’t done pasta at home for a while. I also got a small salad for myself, plus the usual yogurt and soy milk.
At home I decided to make us some nachos, since I’d made the guacamole last night. I grated some Cheddar cheese, layered it and the chips and then baked it in the toaster oven. F and I had some with salsa and guacamole. It was good but F said he ate too much. My meal was smaller so I didn’t have that problem!
I watched Bones and during a break found out about Alan Rickman. I’ve found out about both David Bowie and Alan Rickman from one friend on Facebook, I might have to stop reading her to stop people dying!
I did a bit more knitting tonight and almost have the ribbing done on my latest hat attempt. I basically need to get it started so that I can take it places with me.
And that’s about it for me for today. I walked a long way today, but it was good to get out of the apartment under my own steam and get things done! I’m going back to the post office tomorrow to mail some postcards, but I hope to do some things in the apartment too. Come back later and find out what I get up to. Until tomorrow….
