Monday - Hot and sunny
An okay but sad day.
I got up early this morning and one of the first things I saw was a post on my sister’s feed on Facebook. She had posted a picture of Anton Yeltsin with RIP written above it. I investigated and found out that this young actor, whose work I enjoyed, had died in what seems to be a strange accident with his car. I’ve seen quite a few of his movies and TV shows and I always liked his work.
I watched Castle and also made some oatmeal for myself. F popped home for a few minutes, then left again. I ended up taking a nap for a short while but roused myself and made the bed and got dressed.
F came home for lunch, but I had also started to do some laundry. I ended up doing a couple of loads, all I had room for basically. It went well, except I have a terrible time getting food stains out of my clothes.
In the late afternoon I had some lunch and then started to get ready for dinner. I marinated some chicken and was just starting on the swiss chard when F came home from work. He was a tad late as he’d gone to the doctor’s office today.
It seemed to take a while to get dinner ready, but then it was ready all at once. Yay! We had swiss chard, lemon pepper chicken, salad with tomatoes and cucumber sticks and some yuzu miso. That was very nice.
F did the dishes afterwards and asked me to go out for a walk tonight. I was fine with going, since I hadn’t really done anything exercise wise all day.
We went for quite a long walk. It was well over 2 miles long (although Japan is metric, the app I use on my phone is from the US and it gives the distance in miles.) We did make a couple of detours though. F wanted to visit the drugstore briefly, and I wanted to visit a convenience store to get a chocomint ice cream bar. Yum!
We made it home safely and I did a few postcrossings. I also sent a bit of email and dealt with something in an on-line group. And that’s about it. It was a fairly decent day, just sad that a young man with a lot of talent died. But, then again, this has been a strange week with too many young people dying for no reason at all.
Come back later. I hope I won’t be so dejected and that I’ll have something interesting to update this blog on. A person can dream anyway! Until tomorrow….
