Sunday - Muggy and rainy
A good day.
I got up this morning just after F came home from taking his mother out. We ended up going back to bed for a nap. F had wanted to go for lunch, but I wasn’t really hungry, so didn’t care right then.
We didn’t really move until almost 4:30. I insisted that we have “lunch” so we went to Subway for a couple of Spicy Chicken Filet sandwiches and potatoes. After that, we ran a few errands.
F wanted to buy some soil for his garden at his mother’s house, so we went to a hardware store with a garden centre for it. No problem. We went to one near Yamaya, the store that has a foreign food section, so of course, I wanted to go to Yamaya.
We got a few things there, nothing too special really. I picked up another packet of tortillas. Their price is really good compared to other import stores. I also bought a large bottle of diet soda and some feta cheese. Yummy, yummy.
F asked if I’d like to have a massage. I knew that he wasn’t doing well, so said it was fine. We went home first, and dropped off me and the food. F went to his mother’s house and then came back. While he’d been gone, I had attempted to look up the massage place on line to check its hours, but the website was down. I got F to phone and he was able to book us both in tonight.
We had a little time to wait at home, so we relaxed, and then at 8 pm we drove over to the massage place. We both had to change and had different courses for a change. I had reflexology and F had a back massage. The last time I went, I really enjoyed the foot part of it, but when I had to lie on my stomach for the back massage part, I found that my nose plugged up so much I couldn’t breathe. It wasn’t fun having to breathe through my mouth for so long.
The reflexology was very nice and at the end she massaged my hands too, up to my elbows. I enjoyed that quite a bit. When our time was up, we both changed back to our clothes, paid, and left.
My original wish for dinner had been Indian food, but it was late. I didn’t think we should eat such a big meal so late at night…it was after 9:00 pm after all. Instead we went to Coco Ichibanya, the curry place. We each had a different kind of curry, and were well pleased with our meal. I had chicken and vegetable curry with scrambled egg, F had the handmade pork cutlet. I gave him a whack of my rice too because I didn’t want it and he did.
We bought a few groceries too tonight. I am going to try chicken fajitas in the slow cooker tomorrow. I’m a little nervous, but I hope it’ll work. I know it won’t be as good as the ones I make in the frypan, but I doubt F will notice anyway!
That’s about it for me. Tomorrow I hope to get started on my latest column. The deadline is Friday and I’d really like to get it done soon. Come back in a while and see what happens with my Monday. Until tomorrow….
