Friday - Warm and sunny
A good day.
I got up late this morning. I’m not sure why but I woke up early and turned off my alarms and then went back to bed. It was almost 10 when I got up for real. Not good. Sigh.
My morning was fairly quiet. I watched a bit of TV from the DVR, I did a bit of laundry and decided that since I was going out, that would do for my workout.
I scanned my cards early and then got them ready to go. I had some lunch and watched more from the DVR after the repeat of Penny Dreadful finished. I love that show. The second season starts tomorrow and I have had it written on the calendar for weeks. I think it is Eva Green. She is endlessly fascinating!
I left a bit after 4 and biked to the drugstore, hacked around and bought some stuff there. After that I came home.
F called and said he was finished work, so I got started on the kitchen prep. I did the dishes and then prepared the broccoli. Earlier in the day I had set up the garlic pork to marinate. When he was home I cooked dinner. We had garlic pork, leftover chicken from last night, leftover swiss chard, sesame soy broccoli and salad and it was good. F was quite impressed!
I had suggested before dinner that we walk to Mister Donuts for some tea and a donut after dinner. I didn’t think that F wanted to do that, but he did. Hurray!
We both got dressed for walking in the cold and set off. After a few minutes of walking we arrived at the donut place. It had closed. There on the door were listed the new hours. They are now open 8:00am to 8:00pm. Say what?! We hardly ever go there early in the evening and Mister Donuts is always open late…there are trains and such that people come and have a coffee or a tea and a bite before they catch them. I’m quite annoyed.
However, all was not lost. On the way back, we passed the new karaoke box and F asked if I’d like to go in. Of course I would! We got a membership and went and sang for two hours. It was a lot of fun! Towards the end I couldn’t think of what to sing so I posted on Facebook and asked my friends. It was a little crazy since they couldn’t hear me, but in some cases, that was all the better for them! One friend asked me to do Adele’s “Hello”. She is a great singer. I am not. However, my Queen song was okay and so was Elton John and Kiki Dee’s “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart”. I had fun.
We paid and left when our two hours was up. We walked home. It seemed warmer on the way back somehow.
At home, F snoozed for a bit on the couch before going to bed, I spent quality time with my computer.
I am not sure what we’re going to get up to tomorrow. There aren’t any new movies in town and we are on a bit of a budget. I’m hopeful that we’ll come up with something exciting to do. Come back a bit later and find out if we manage to have a good weekend after all. Until tomorrow….
