Tuesday - Warm and sunny

A good day.

I got up a little early this morning and had a pretty usual morning of relaxing and watching Castle.  Breakfast was oatmeal this morning, and it was good.  I didn’t put any frozen fruit in it though…don’t have any open at the moment.

I was a bit late starting my workout today, despite getting ready early. F called me to say he was on his way home and I was doing my warm-up.  When he arrived home, I was just starting my cool-down.  It was all annoying.  I’m not sure why he feels the need to drive home for lunch.  It’s not like I’m cooking lunch for him!

In the afternoon I did some laundry and also put away a lot of the clothes in the drying room.  I don’t always do that, so it was a good thing.  I folded towels and put them away too.  I watched a few things from the weekend off the DVR and also an episode of Once Upon a Time.  I had lunch, finished up the duck breast from last week.  Yum.

I scanned my cards a bit late and ran them to the post office a bit late too!  I had a nice walk over there and it felt good to get out of the apartment.

When I came back home I did the dishes from the day and just generally got the kitchen in shape for me to start cooking.  I hate to keep complaining, but F’s idea of “doing the dishes” is just that.  The dishes.  Mine is wiping the table once it is clear, wiping off the stove if it needs it and just generally leaving things tidy.  I don’t like coming back to a kitchen that I have to clean up before I start cooking, and yet, he always leaves it in a mess.  I should probably have a chat with him about it, but I doubt that he’ll change.  

Tonight’s dinner was tofu with a chicken and yuzu-kosho sauce, pan-fried chicken, salad and quinoa for me and rice and quinoa for F.  It was all quite nice and I might actually buy the tofu sauce again.  We don’t eat a lot of tofu, but with summer coming it might make a nice addition to the table.  

After dinner, I put away the leftovers and cleared the table, F did the dishes.  

He wanted to go for a walk tonight.  I had already done 30 minutes of walking inside, plus a walk to the post office too, so when he talked about a two mile walk, I wasn’t too sure.  However, that’s about what I got!  We walked along the main road, past Gusto, past the temple and F was all for continuing, but I had had enough!  We stopped in at the McDonalds and I had an ice tea and a small ice cream, F had an ice cream too, plus a cola.  We stopped and chatted for a few minutes, then came home again.  

I enjoy walking with F, except I worry that he’s not in good enough condition.  However, he always tells me he can walk faster so I don’t know if that’s true or not.  

We watched a bit of TV tonight, well, I did.  Criminal Minds of course and also Suits.  F had a bath and went to bed fairly early again.  I think I’m going to try and go off to bed soon as I have to shake up my morning routine tomorrow.  I’m going to meet a friend for lunch.  We haven’t seen each other much recently, so I’ll look forward to seeing her soon.

Come back later and see what I get up to….until tomorrow….

I really enjoy it now and miss it on the weekends when I don't do it. Walking has really helped my energy level too.

It is one of the lovely tastes in Japan! I really enjoy it.
