Monday - Cold and I don’t know!
A good day.
I got up this morning when F was leaving for work and said a sleepy hello to him. I went back to sleep then. I got up around 9 this morning and around 9:30 took out the loaf of bread that F had put in for me last night. I wanted it for our dinner.
I had my usual morning of tea and cereal for breakfast and a little snooze. I roused myself a bit later and made the bed and then took a needed shower! F came home a few minutes later and had his lunch.
Once he left in the afternoon I packed up some of my books. They were quite dusty so I wiped them down, but tried to sort them into different categories. I only put a few of them into a box.
In the afternoon I did a little bit of TV watching from when I was away and then I had an early lunch. I checked over my recipe to check that I had the ingredients. I did, mostly.
Around 5 pm I started making Simple Carrot Soup from 101 Cookbooks. It was remarkably easy and went quite well. Unfortunately, I hadn’t heard from F. It took a long time before he called. I didn’t want to make the soup too early for us, but I did anyway. We didn’t sit down to eat until almost 8 pm, and then F tried the soup and announced that he couldn’t eat and wasn’t feeling well. He left the table and I continued eating. He kept his soup for tomorrow.
The soup was gorgeous and I loved it. I am looking forward to having more tomorrow! F was on the couch not looking too happy, so I did the dishes. Thankfully there wasn’t that much to do as I had been doing them while I was cooking. Yay for me.
In the evening I watched some TV and did a few Postcrossings. Postcrossing just hit its 40 millionth card tonight. Wow! I got 5 in the mail today which was rather surprising. I prepared a few to go out.
And that was it for the most part. Just after midnight I gave F his Valentine’s Day present. I told him I went really practical this year, and I did. I gave him two pillowcases! He recently bought big pillows at Costco and it is hard to find pillow cases that fit. I found some in Sendai and washed and even ironed one of them today. He seemed pleased. Hurray for that.
Tomorrow I have to send my postcards and I hope to do a bit more decluttering or packing. We’ll see how things go. Until tomorrow….
