Wednesday - Snowy but clear
A good day.
I got up at a goodly time this morning and filled up the kerosene tank right off the bat. I watched The X-Files, had breakfast and tea and read up on my favourite blogs, etc. Then, I headed off to take a shower.
I got a message from my friend that she was on her way, so I hurried to get ready. F came home around noon, and looked very nice in his suit. He came bearing a certificate. He was at a ceremony commemorating the length of time that he has worked for his employers. I’ve never had a job that long!
I went out when my friend arrived and we spent the next few hours together. We had a lovely lunch at Cafe Ridea. She had a basil doria and I had spicy chicken coconut curry. It was good, but was spicy. The only think that didn’t work for me in the meal was the tomato soup. I ate about half of it. It tasted good, but I have the dreaded tongue biting going on, and a little itchy skin. Sigh.
We talked about going somewhere to have a walk, but there was quite a bit of snow everywhere. I suggested going to Komagihara Park, but then I suggested going somewhere for tea or coffee and cake! I’ve been reading about a cafe that serves gorgeous fruit cakes, so wanted to try it. We decided to go there! We were able to grab a table and had a lovely time there. I had some Darjeeling tea. We did more chatting and lots of laughing too. Finally we had to break up the party. I was putting my glasses away when one of the arms came off them. Oh no! Luckily I have a spare pair at home.
She dropped me off and I had a lovely, quiet time at home catching up on things.
When F came home, I asked if we could take my glasses to the glasses shop to see if they could be fixed. I really like the frames and use the glasses a lot. Apparently, they can’t be fixed. Sigh. The woman did give me some advice. She suggested that if I am going to use a neck string for my glasses, I should get ones with a stronger frame. She pushed the store’s own brand with plastic frames, but I’m not convinced honestly. I want light ones.
We had dinner in Gusto and it was okay. I was hoping for something a little nicer, but really I didn’t care all that much.
We bought some groceries and then came home. We had a quiet night in. I did some more knitting and it went quite well. I also did a couple of postcards tonight. I wanted to do more, but sometimes they take a long time!
And that is about it for my day. It was lovely to see my friend again, and also lovely that F is willing to help me get another pair of glasses.
I’m not really sure what I’ll get up to tomorrow. Come back a bit later and find out! Until tomorrow….
