Thursday - Rainy and humid
A goodish day.
My day got off to a fairly bad start to be honest. When I woke up this morning F was gone, but the garbage that I had carefully put by the door for him to take out with him wasn’t. That meant I had to do it. Normally it wouldn’t be such a big deal, but I hadn’t slept well at all last night and needed to get more sleep. I got dressed, walked the garbage to the gomi station and then came home again and went back to bed. I changed my wake up time too so that I would get a bit more sleep.
I woke up around 10, got up, and had breakfast. I had DVR’d Castle and watched it later. I did some laundry, hung up a bunch to dry and of course, took other stuff down first. I left some of it on the couch and took a nap. I woke up about 3 minutes before F came home. In fact, I heard his car drive into the parking lot and hurriedly threw on some clothes.
He had a quick lunch and was off again. I finally got stuck into my column and by gum, I got it done! Whew! I sent it off to the editor around 4 pm today. Is it perfect? Probably not, but it’s quite good and I feel happy with it. Yay.
I had a late lunch and cleaned up some of the dishes in the kitchen. There wasn’t too many to do. I was starting to get dinner under way when F called me. After a while, he came home and I kicked dinner into a higher gear. We were just having spaghetti and shrimp, but I tried cooking the shrimp first, then heating up the sauce, adding the pasta to that and then throwing the Shrimp in on top. It worked quite well and I was happy with it.
After dinner, F and I decided to go for a walk. He went outside and came back again with the news that it was raining. We still decided to go. We both took umbrellas and off we went. The rain stopped after a few minutes so we were able to put down our umbrellas and walk a little faster. We were going to go home when I suggested walking a little further to the McDonalds for a drink.
We got to McDonalds and of course I decided I wanted an ice cream cone and F did too. We each had one, plus a drink. It was very nice to sit inside and chat for a bit. We came home again.
I watched a bit of TV and F took his bath and then went to bed. I watched the documentary that I’ve been following and then turned off the TV for my update.
I was so angry in the morning, it was a bit crazy. I know that F just either didn’t see the bag of garbage there or forgot about it. He’s had a lot on his mind lately, but it felt like he left it on purpose.
Tomorrow I need to catch up on some of the things that I let slide this week while I worked on my column. I didn’t run my errands today, so maybe I’ll get out of the apartment in the daytime if the weather is willing. Come back later and see how I get on. Until tomorrow….
