Thursday - Cold but clear
A goodish day.
Still reeling from yesterday’s election results, I went to bed a tad early (for me) last night and still overslept this morning. Sigh. Still, I got up, made some coffee and oatmeal for breakfast and got on with my day. I watched something from the DVR this morning I believe and then turned off the TV.
I did some of my computer stuff early and then got dressed up warmly and set off on my computer. I rode to Tokai, the craft shop. I had a look at some of their yarn in the store, but have virtually decided that it just won’t do. It’s a little thin and it has wool in it. Their acrylic isn’t very nice either. I’m slightly allergic to wool, so I don’t really want to work with it. After Tokai, I visited the drugstore for a few things and then debated with myself over where to go. I could either go to Gusto or towards home and Marumatsu. I decided to go to Marumatsu since it would be dark soon and I didn’t want to be out too long.
I went there and had a very late lunch. I had a Japanese meal…some kind of steamed rice with fall vegetables and chicken. It wasn’t too bad at all. I added on drink bar too and drank much too much coffee.
I came home and after a little while, F came home too. He’d had a long driving day…He’d had to go to Sendai which is over 3 hours away when you can’t use the highway, which he couldn’t.
When I asked him about dinner, he asked to go to the cheapo udon shop we went to last week or the one before. I said okay, but I wasn’t too happy about it. When we got there, it wasn’t as busy as last time. I ordered something different this time, I had shaved beef on udon, and it wasn’t very good. I told F that it wasn’t the place as much as the dish. My meat was bathed in oil and was kind of gross. I was quite disappointed.
We did some shopping at the grocery store and decided that we’d have nabe tomorrow night for dinner. I hope that F is up for making it! I’ll prepare the cooking pot and maybe some of the veggies, but the rest is up to him.
We came home and had a quiet night in. I watched Bones and darned in a few ends of the poncho, also surfed the web looking for nice yarn in Japan. I found some, but have no idea how to order it…and the website is in English!
And that’s about it. Tomorrow I should run to the post office to make a payment, but apart from that, I haven’t go much planned. I might run out for coffee or something if I feel like it. I am a bit stir crazy at the moment. Facebook is full of doom and gloom and rending of clothes….Sometimes I just want to tell everyone to take a deep breath. Then I start to worry that I’m not worried enough…so definitely time to stay off Facebook and find a happy place with a book or a crochet hook!
Come back later if you feel like it and see what I get up to. Until tomorrow….
