Thursday - Clear and then rainy
A sad day.
I got up early again today and had breakfast and tea. I watched The X-Files and surfed the net a little. After a couple of my shows I got dressed, made the bed and started in on dinner. I made up the tuna burgers mix and put them in the fridge to firm up. I expected F to come home for lunch, but he didn’t today.
I was getting ready to do some of my usual computer stuff when I received a message from my sister. She told me that she’d just found out that a relative of ours had died last month, but we were only finding out about it today. The relative lived in England, was older and single, but was a lovely woman. Even though I haven’t seen her in person in years, we kept in touch and sent gifts and cards at Christmas.
I was quite sad, and frankly, quite regretful. I have been meaning to write to her all year and just never got around to it. Sigh. I should have written.
In the afternoon, I had a little cry, and then scanned my cards. I walked them off to the post office and also walked myself off to the conbini and got myself a cafe latte for the walk home.
When I got home I got stuck on dinner. I did a lot of dishes and then made the easy zucchini salad I’ve made before. F got home while I was making it.
He changed and started to relax while I got dinner ready. Tonight we had quite a good dinner. We had tuna burgers on hot dog buns, with cabbage salad, zucchini salad, steamed broccoli and a few green onions. There weren’t as many leftovers as I had hoped! Still, I was pleased. Dinner was good, and it was remarkably stress free.
In the evening we had a quiet night. F watched some Japanese TV and then at 10 pm I watched Bones and did a bit of crochet while he took his bath. He went to bed when he finished and I stayed up a bit longer. Okay, a lot longer.
I did something a little different for me. I did some colouring. When I was at Costco last week, I bought myself a book of zen postcards to colour, so I started one tonight. I haven’t finished, but I like what I’ve done so far. It looks good. I’m a little surprised at how popular colouring is for adults these days, but it is enjoyable too. I might even send someone my postcard(s) if I like them!
And that’s about it for me for today. Tomorrow I have to get out of the apartment for a bit and start getting ready for my trip on the weekend. Come back in a bit and see what I get up to. Until tomorrow….
