Saturday - Clear and sunny
Happy New Year!
A good day.
I got up this morning and showered and then waited for F. I had a couple of cups of tea and then F came back. He was in a good mood which was nice.
I got really sleepy so went back to bed, but he came in to the room and asked if I’d like to go to the Grand El Sun for lunch. Since I like that place I got up.
We drove over there and of course the restaurant was closed! We drove around a bit looking for another place to go and even went into a place, but it had nothing for me. We ended up at a Taiwanese restaurant and had a pretty decent meal.
After lunch we went to the cafe that we tried to go to yesterday. F and I shared a Dutch Baby Pancake and had coffee too. It was very good.
We came home after this and vegged for a couple of hours. F went to pick up the sushi we ordered last week and delivered some to his mum as well. Then, F came home and we ate. The sushi was good. We had about half of it, and left the rest for later.
F watched a lot of really bad TV, but for a change asked if I’d like to go to Tsuruoka Park at midnight for our Hatsumode, or first visit. I said sure, so off we went.
We walked to the shrine and spent about 20 minutes waiting. There weren’t that many people out tonight, which surprised me a lot. It is a little cold, but other than that, the weather is good, so I thought there would be more people.

We ate the rest of the sushi and had some drink. F is snoozing on the couch and I’m going to go off to bed soon as I’m falling asleep at my computer.
Tomorrow we’re off to Yamagata City for a night, so I won’t be here to update. Hopefully we’ll have a good time. I would like to go and see a movie but we’ll see about that. Don’t miss me too much.
Have a happy New Year everyone! Until later….
