Monday - Hot and Sunny
A busy day!
I woke up early and got dressed. I was convinced that the Fire Alarm Inspectors were going to come today so I made a path for them in our tatami room. They didn’t come, but I’m glad I did it anyway.
I watched my shows and drank some tea and had breakfast…it was a good morning. In the afternoon I looked up some recipes and then decided that I had to go to the store. A little after 2 I set off on my big boat/bicycle. Did I ever mention that? My MIL gave me her bicycle. It is huge and honestly, I don’t really like it, but it does have a basket on the front, so works for carrying stuff.
I bought a few things in the grocery store and then came home via McDonalds. I had a light lunch there, basically a hamburger, salad and a drink. At home, I did a bit of dinner prep. I had found a recipe for eggplant and decided to try it. I had bought a few things for it and then had to put it all together. I did, and then put the dish in the fridge to marinate. I did the same thing for the pork for dinner.
Around 5 pm, I was thinking about kicking dinner prep into high gear, when F called to say he’d be late. He was very late. He didn’t get home until after 8 pm. In fact, I had actually cooked the pork before he arrived because I didn’t want to wait anymore. Dinner got good reviews, but honestly, the marinade for the eggplant was a little sweet in my mind. It needed more ginger or less sugar. Tomorrow.
I thought that F was really tired since he had said on the phone that he’d like to go to bed right away, but he stayed up watching (bad) TV. I was a bit miffed. He left to take his shower and I switched the channel. When he came back, he wanted to watch his stuff again. I wasn’t pleased really, but let him. Just glad for him that I wasn’t a fan of what’s on today.
Finally he went to bed and I’m still up, but am planning to get to bed soon. I’ve had a lot of really late nights lately, an earlier night would be good.
Come back later and find out what I get up to. Until tomorrow….
